    Getting AirPrint to work with other printers doesn’t require the “Hack” to work. There is a System Preference called “Printopia” by Ecamm that allows you to access any printer via AirPrint. It costs $9.95 and works perfectly.

    Here is a link to the Printopia’s webpage:

      So basically Ecamm have taken a free hack, wrapped it up in system preference clothes and charge $9.95 for the privilege?

        A free hack that is buggy and forces you to have your printer hooked up to a computer.

        The Ecamm way is very stable, it works with printers connected to a router/switch/hub as opposed to having to be connected to a computer. It will work with all future versions of OS X (assuming that Ecamm keeps it up-to-date) where you are relying on the developer of the free hack to keep the hack up-to-date. If the hack were Open Source that might not be such a bad thing, but I don’t believe it is.

        So yes, you could go the free buggy route. However, we are talking $10 here. Not $100 or $1000.

        I really find it astounding that so many people complain about such measly amounts of money. $0.99 for iPhone games are way to expensive so they steal them, etc… I just don’t get it.

    I prefer this hack using Dropbox detailed here: http://www.labnol.org/internet/print-from-mobile-phones/17827/. My printer is hooked up to my airport wireless network.

    One thing to make sure if you want Airprint to work with even a HP Printer that is Air Print compatible is to have a new enough router that is fast enough and will work with the Bonjour applets as I had an older router, a G series, and it would not work. Updated the router to a new N series and everything is working as it is supposed to.

    1. Amazingly fast performance; 2. Very thin and ultraportable for travel and even in the class rooms; 3. Simplicity in design and feature configuration;
