Ok - scanning is a little painful

Airprint does most of the heavy lifting so I only really use this app for scanning, which is pretty painful.

I’m delighted with my Brother printer and it works seamlessly with Airprint and the quality is great -as does the scanner - but a bit of an update on the scanning side would be ideal so I don’t have to fire up the desktop to scan.

Appreciate the potential cost implications of adding pdf functionality, but scan to pdf for multiple pages would be amazing, but I’m not holding my breath!

A great app - when it works

This is a great app - when it works, which for me is about 25% of the time on my iPhone 5 and iPad Air, and I never know which 25%. I find I have to wake the printer up by accessing the app and checking my Brother MFC-J5620DW is awake and about 10% of the time there is no response. Should it show as awake and you attempt to print, about 50% of the time the data arrives at the printer and it sits and chews on it but does nothing. About 25% of the time it spits out a blank page and considers the job done, but just occasionally - it works, which is joyous. I don’t know where the problem lies, the Brother app, my apps, ios, the router or the printer. I have not yet managed to fathom it out and life is too short.

Brother sell the laser printer I purchased as as an air printer , but you have to use this app to air print, this is where it all goes wrong . I sell on eBay and wanted this printer to print postage labels and invoices, I work with an iPad and whilst the app is clumsy and slow with emails and documents it is totally useless with anything on the eBay platform. I set it for 1 invoice per sheet on A4, it insists on printing everything on 1 sheet , so 15 invoices that look like postage stamps . Tried printing 1 invoice at a time 🤷🏼‍♀️it then prints the invoice so big only 1/3 is on the sheet , it then throws you off the app so have to log back into eBay and start the process again. I’m convinced Brother designed this app as a form of torture . Printer is being returned as not fit for purpose and app is being deleted.
