Hard to work with

Why is it so hard to work with? I can’t find my printer for some reason. I can’t upload pictures, there are very limited colors to choose from, the clip art isn’t that good. Just very confusing to use.

When big companies cheap out and hire cheap labor to create these apps.

This software is mediocre at best. It’s almost like they took whatever desktop app the had and shrunk it down. Really difficult to manipulate text and images. If you have average sized hands, you’ll probably get arthritis trying to contort your digits in order to design with the miniature onscreen elements. Looks like you’ll want to design your label in another app, then import that image into this atrocious app to print. The ruler and edges don’t line up with the actual prints, this means you end up wasting a lot of printer tape trying to get the edges and alignment correct.

I really feel like I’ve been duped by Brother. Nothing about the interface is anything I would come to expect in iOS, none of the elements are native. Dear Brother, please design a print only app for iOS that feels like an iOS app. What you’ve shipped here is garbage and I expect more.

Pretty easy

Everyone writings one star reviews must be very incompetent granted the software isn’t the cleanest looking but it gets the job done and if u actually read the instruction you’ll have no issues I did have an issue with connection to the device but I simply reset the WiFi control in the device and connected to my phone and after the second try it worked be patient take time there a learning curve.
