Ruler needed

Its a good app but i cant count how many times my images i print out for my clients tattoos were either too big or too small not due to client but due to the fact for example ill want a 6in image i have to guess and hope for the best im using the PocketJet 773 airprint the app doesnt show a reality layout of the paper i wish the app had a ruler for width and length on bottom and one side for the actual measurements of paper so you can size and edit it accurately also app doesnt have a label to show which side is the top or bottom of sheet that leads to my next concern i don’t understand why we cant add multiple images in one sheet you gotta keep rerunning for each image and thats when the problem with which is up and down ive printed out a image over another image several times because ill forget which is top or bottom of layout a app update on that would be fantastic honestly

The UI is sorta bad but the functionality is there

I would rate the user interface as “fine” by 2009 standards, and just not up to date compared to today, but this app works shockingly well for faxing out, scanning to Files app (big one for me), printing (though I usually just use AirPrint natively in files), and machine/ink status for my 7 year old Brother MFC J480DW on my iPad Pro 3 11” running 15.4.1. The fact that I can do this stuff relatively smoothly from my iPad to my ancient printer on a different VLAN’d subnet is insanely cool*.

Four stars for doing the job reliably and in some cases above expectations (for the most part), but not five because boy it hurts to look at.

*Since mDNS and therefor Bonjour is a multicast service, the printer is only “visible” to things on its own subnet; you need to get Avahi Reflector running somewhere on your network to cheat and bounce the mDNS Bonjour packets between the subnets for interVLAN routing, EVEN if your interVLAN firewall is set up correctly, or the app won’t see the printer advertising and therefor won’t know where to find it; same with Airplay and AirPrint and Roku across subnets. Once Avahi is reflecting packets between the subnets, you’re home free. Make sure to set Avahi’s cache size to 0 or the printer and device names start to get real funky after a few weeks.

A Clunky App

This connects online and almost always my ink will suddenly show that the cartridges are low or empty…. Even when almost half full. But even with out that nefarious aspect, the fact that it tries to control you in that they make it a constant struggle and irritation to just use the machine. The machine that you own. That you shouldn’t have to be tethered to this company forever. If you want to use a different ink, even though it’s none of their f’ing business, they make the machine turn against you. Sometimes it’s working fine… other times it’s acting like it should have a say as to what you do in your home with YOUR MACHINE. The company said they sell their machines cheaply but expect ink sales to make it worth while. I hope that congress steps in like they did with Apple and the right to repair. We need laws preventing intrusive controlling software on any device we buy . Also, this app is the bare minimum that they could provide their customers / mainly pushing ink - the formatting and printing options are sub par. Especially coming from a company that makes printers. This app hasn’t gotten better over the years either. You can only upload 1 image per printing- why better to use up paper and ink!!! Why not?! The ink prices are another slap in the face of anyone who has one of these machines. They are price gouging to the extreme.
