|6:52||Beginner’s Lesson: Printing from a Smartphone
First … Don’t Do it! View onscreen, or if you really need paper, use a service like Office Depot for documents or Walmart, Walgreens, Snapfish, or Shutterfly for photos.

There are a couple of prepared member videos about printing that we recommend you watch:
|13:10||Jim describes how he was able to set up an old “Classic” printer – one that is not Wi-Fi, it needs to be connected to a Computer. He used Google’s Cloud Print to “register” that printer (thru the computer) with his Google Account. Now, any device using his Google Account has that printer available.|
Demo: Chris uses the iPhone and wants to print some text from the Notes app.
If your printer is not Airprint compatible, you need to find an app that allows printing to that printer. Then you open the App and print from there.
Most Wi-Fi printers can use an email address. When you get the printer home, you need to log in to the printer manufacturer’s website and get an email address.
No Cloud Print app on an Apple device, but you’ll be able to print from any App that is a Google or Chrome connected App. If it is logged in to your Google Account, it will see any Google Cloud Print printers you have registered.
Android: Settings->Printing. If this has never been set up you will see a message “No Services have been installed”. Go to Play Store to get Google Cloud Print. Now when you go back to Settings, Printing, you will now see Cloud Print. Turn it ON.
And, that “place” will most likely be the printer manufacturer’s server
|37:54||App o Week: Snapfish for Android or iOS or Windows Phone

Shutterfly is a similar app.
