Wireless Printing Apps By Brand and Functionality

While we've spent time covering the different types of mobile printing as we've talked about particular companies, we have not previously had a single repository where someone could see what the name of the mobile print app(s) are that are compatible with their printers. Below we will seek to cover all of the OEM-specific apps as well as some other options, too.

 

HP | Epson |  Canon | Brother | Dell | Samsung | Lexmark | Xerox

 

HP

  • Mobile Printing Option #1: HP ePrint App
  • Compatible OS: Apple iOS, Android, Blackberry, Amazon

The ePrint app allows users to print to any ePrint enabled printer in just a few simple steps. Additionally, users can print to the nearest Public Print Location which includes stores like FedEx Office, UPS, Walgreens, as well as many hotels, airport lounges and more. Users are also able to locate and print their documents and photos from cloud services like Evernote, Box.net, and Dropbox.
  • Supported file formats: MS Office documents, web pages, email attachments, photos, PDFs, and text files
  • Other options: For users of iOS devices, many HP printers are compatible with AirPrint technology which allows users to easily print from their iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches. Google users are additionally able to print to HP printers using Google Cloud Print, which now also comes native on Android devices running the KitKat 4.4 or later OS.

Another non-app solution is Epson Remote Print (though it does involve a download), and allows you to print from your desktop or laptop to Epson printers via email.

Xerox

  • Mobile Printing Option #1: Xerox Mobile Print
  • Compatible OS: iOS, Android
  • Description: Xerox Mobile Print is not an app per se, but more of an overarching tool which provides support for printing to almost any type of brand, regardless of it is a Xerox Machine or not.

  • Supported file formats: PDF files, Microsoft Office documents, photos
  • Other options: As part of the mobile printing suite, there are a few apps which users can download from the App Store or Google Play—Xerox Mobile Print Solution and Xerox Mobile PrintBack. Xerox Mobile Print Solution, while free, requires access to mobile printing services from Xerox which requires the purchase of Xerox Mobile Print. Xerox PrintBack on the other hand is also free, and only requires the download of software onto your local computer which makes it possible for you to connect to the default printer on that machine as well as give you access to print from cloud-based services such as Dropbox and Box.net.
