Sorry for my frustration, but I would have thought PRINTING would be a pretty basic function, one to be included with Android OS, but apparently not!
My mom has a Motorola Xoom tablet. She just wants to be able to print recipes, or coupons, or flight tickets, etc, to her wireless printer. If she finds the recipe/coupon/whatever on her Windows PC, all she has to do is click 'print'. That's it. It prints. If she's on her Android tablet, well I don't know what the f*ck she's supposed to do.
I've tried setting up Google Cloud Print. But there's a major flaw with it; it requires the Google Print Connector to be running on a PC at all times, and that Google Chrome is signed in to the proper account. Well my brother set up the Google Cloud using his Google account, which means my mom can't access those printers. Not to mention the fact that I occasionally use this same computer, and sign in to my Google account. That means that every time she wants to print from her tablet, she has to turn on the PC, and sign in to Google chrome, just to be able to use the "convenient" cloud print.
So the printer is an HP printer, so I tried HP's ePrint app. But it doesn't actually let you "share" anything to the printer. You have to print files directly from the app. That means you can't just take a picture, and press "share to ePrint". You have to manually load the picture in ePrint. Oh it HAS a "share to ePrint" feature, it just doesn't work at all. Try and share a JPG to it, and it says "invalid file type". But it can load the exact same JPG itself.
So is there anyone here who has successfully managed to print from their Android, without hassle?
