"A valuable addition to your Mac"

August 27, 2012  |  By takalevy

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.2b2

Pros

This application allowed me to print from my iPad to a non-Airprint printer. My Brother MFC-8860DN is now 'connected' to my iPad. The application was free, but I made a donation. I'm running MacOS 10.7.4.

Cons

Installation was a little rocky. Be sure to read the FAQ's and things work great. You have to configure your Mac firewall or APA won't work.

Air Print Activator originally showed 2 copies of my printer. One printed correctly and the other seemed to go to bit bucket. Disabling and re-enabling the application in the Mac System Preference file cured the problem.

Summary

If you've got a Mac and and iPhone or iPad and a non-Airprint enabled printer, this application is a must.

"Works like a champ"

July 14, 2012  |  By tcora

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.2b2

Pros

Does just what it is supposed to, easy to install and configure.

Cons

None that I can identify.

Summary

The 2.2b2 installer here will crash when it runs. Go to the developer's website and download 2.2b5 and you will have (at least I had) no problems at all.

"Worked like a charm."

June 02, 2012  |  By clarkscc2301

 |  Version: AirPrint Activator 2.2b2

Pros

It works and its FREE from a trusted source.

Cons

NONE.
NONE...
and NONE!!

Summary

I'm just your average account and I had no problems installing and running this program. It honestly, took more time to write this review than to get the program downloaded, installed, and running on my MAC lion. After I installed program... there is literally an on switch. Then I open my Brother MFC-7840w and checked the shared printer box. My iphone 4s found the printer right away and now every IOs device in my house can take advantage of AIR-PRINT for free. I dont like downloading random software from the internet but since I found it on CNET... I trusted the developer. Anyway, download it and get started... I have never donated $$ to free software every... but I am contemplating it now. THANK YOU AirPrint Activator for MAC... you made my day. :o)
