Make sure your label maker is wireless with wifi

I downloaded and installed this as a trial. Turns out my P-touch label maker does NOT have wifi, so I deleted this right away. The wife-enabled label makers are expensive and cost over $100.

Works Great for me!

I own a Brother, P-Touch CUBE Plus. It works off USB as well as Bluetooth. For this app, I ended up needing to have it work via the USB cable. This does not bother me one bit. :) Software is easy and quick to use!

I also love that I can use any of my system fonts (and fonts I've installed on my iMac).

I have up until recently only used label printing via my iPhone using the app, P-Touch Design & Print by Brother. This worked fine over Bluetooth, but I get tired of the tedious process of using my phone for this. I type fast and would prefer to make a list and get it done quicker on my computer.

Fast forward to now. I read the poor reviews but figured I could still give this a try. I had some issues getting my P-Touch to stay connected over the Bluetooth connection to my iMac (2018 iMac). I finally decided to just try it on the USB connection and it works perfectly.

I'm not too concerned about not being able to bluetooth from my iMac as I wanted to create a bunch of organizing labels at one time. Yes, it would be great if it worked a little better, but I still found the app very useful and easy to use and it accomplished what I was going for!

Worst version ever!

Every version of the label software gets worse. I spent 20 minutes trying to add a simple clip art image to a label, I gave up! Select all doesn't work, or if it does, it is not the Select All on the menu. I would rate this software a zero if that rating was allowed.

Brother, get some real people to give usability feedback instead of programmers who never use the program.

A very unhappy Brother customer who currently has three Brothers and one Canon online. I mostly use the Canon...
