You may need to go to the Air Printer webpage and open the old compatible interface to support more printers.

Mac works / iPhone doesn't work

> I setup the software, added my ethernet network printer, and successfully printed using Mac (which I could've done without this software btw but did it to test).
> I could not see the printer using my phone (no Air Printers found). The website confirms it stopped working after software version 2.02. So I uninstalled the software since the main reason was to enable printing via iPhone / iPad.
> I hope it works in future updates, but perhaps by then I'll just buy an Air Printer :)

Crazy Complicated Set-Up

I got it to work as far as showing the printers in the print menu on the iPad but that's where it ends. Nothing ever prints or gets into the print queue. $40 down the drain. Basically, you can't print from an iPhone or iPad so buy a MacBook if you need to print.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thank you for buying Air Printer app. Please follow the steps below to repair it:
1. After you follow our instructions to set up, you should restart the Air Printer software.
2. Go to System Preferences>Printers & Scanners, delete the old air printer you added, then re-add the air printer, and finally try printing again.
