"It says all my printers are offline"

May 24, 2011  |  By marialanger

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.0b15

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

Doesn't work
No built-in help

Summary

I have four printers and am following the instructions to the letter. Yet this software tells me that every single printer is offline -- when it isn't. Not sure what the problem is and lack of help within the program doesn't make anything better.

"The iPad printing utility Apple failed to deliver"

May 23, 2011  |  By Macfan424

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.0b15

Pros

Allows printing from iPad to most printers.

Cons

Doesn't work with printers connected to an Airport (yet), only those directly connected to a Mac.

Summary

Works well with my non-AirPrint printers. Mac and printer do have to be on, the application activated, and controls are limited, but it does the basic job it is intended to do; allows documents to be printed directly from an iPad. Upgrades are frequent, but sometimes tricky to install, but that is a minor issue.

Thanks to the developer for a useful tool that finally permits some AirPrint functionality without having to buy one of the handful of printers that offer built-in support.

"Disappointed with this version"

May 21, 2011  |  By dwholton

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.0b15

Pros

Simple program - easy to use

Cons

No longer works with printer
Crashed iPad Pages app

Summary

While the previous versions worked well with my iPad and iPod Touch, this version doesn't work at all. I first had difficulty getting my devices to show the printer in AirPrint so I fully reinstalled it. I was able to get my printer recognized in AirPrint, but it now won't print pages. The only thing I've done differently is install the newest version. I'm really disappointed.

"Perfect solution for using a non-AirPrint Printer"

May 16, 2011  |  By gpinter

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.0b15

Pros

Works as advertised. The normal "Print" functionality of your iOS device is used so you don't have to go to another app to print.

Cons

Must be installed and running on your Mac.

Summary

Until Apple provides some way to use non-AirPrint printers, this application, running on your Mac, is the way to go.

"Great little utility. Why didn't Apple do it?"

May 16, 2011  |  By Al_Q--2008

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.0b15

Pros

Free. Easy to use.

Cons

Mac must be running (and logged in) as well as printer. No control over printer settings.

Summary

Well worth trying.
