Envelope Maker 4+
Boon Leng Cheong
Designed for iPad
NOTE: If in doubt, email me to ask if your printer is compatible. I will answer yes if your printer has been tested. Otherwise, I might give you a promo code to test it for free.
Envelope Maker allows you to quickly compose and print envelopes using the 'AirPrint' wireless printing technology for iOS devices. Now you can walk up to the printer, feed in the envelope and print it right there from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, with just a few flicks of your fingers. No more worries that someone might print to the envelope you just loaded while you are still on your way to your desktop to hit the print button.

Ratings and Reviews
Lacks some basic features
The app lacks some basic features for printing envelopes for the price. Lacks multiple envelope sizes, iT assumes only one size . There is no post-net barcode below the addressee. Menu icons are not intuitive, and are crammed into the main screen. A swipe menu with actual textual selections and applications configuration adjustments would be helpful. There is only one printer feed orientation. The app assumes right of tray feeding vs center feed if doing a one-print from a rear feeder, that may have a centering guide only. The app does work, it's just lacking many basic features for envelope printing. The price is really too high for what it offers. 99-cents or free perhaps, but not $1.99.
No way to customize envelope size (doesn't even tell you what size the provided envelope is)
There is no way to set what size of envelope you are printing on — you get only the default size, and the app doesn’t even tell you what size that is.
From reading other reviews, it seems to me that other people are repositioning the addresses, then doing a test print, then painstakingly repeating all that until they get the addresses positioned adequately for their needs. There is no reasonable way to tell where your addresses will be until you do a test print. You have to eyeball it, which would be annoyingly inexact even if the preview were accurate for your envelope size, but since it isn’t, the preview is almost useless.
If this app simply let you set the envelope size, it would be great for occasional use, assuming the rest of it works as advertised; I don’t know if it does. (Someone who used it more frequently and needed to switch between envelope sizes would be frustrated at the inability to switch between saved layouts.)
Please read before purchasing
My bypass tray is setup to center the envelope in the print path. This app seems to assume the envelope will be on the right side of the printer path. When I tried putting the envelope on the right side I got a paper jam. When I pulled the envelope out it was printed correctly, but hadn’t gotten to the heating section yet so the toner smudged off the envelope when touched.
I would MAYBE excuse a free app for this oversight. But a paid app should not be lacking this basic function, along with the other functions mentioned in other reviews.
I’m debating whether to spend the time and energy required to get my $1.99 back. My time and energy is worth more than the $1.99 but I feel like the app developer won buy charging for inferior product hoping people like me would give up and just let her/him keep it. So I compromise. She/he can keep it. But I hope this review keeps her/him from making money off others.
