Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good app
First off, I was never a fan of the big common printer names such as HP, epsom and the like. I felt like they gave printers away cheap only to price gouge on ink and do everything in their power to prevent the use of 3rd party cartridges. I preferred Brother and the fact I could use any ink. This tactic would trick a lot of people who aren’t tech savvy. Well I currently have an hp due to my elderly mother insisting and Its not as bad as it used to be. Hardware is pretty good, ink is reasonably priced and the app is great. The app makes using your hp printer much easier and gives full access to all advanced printer features and modes (scan, fax, copy, print). Nice to have that on a mobile device. I usually opt to use this app and my iPad over my PC or MacBook. I’ll just save the documents to iCloud and that’s that. I also love the fax feature and use it all the time. We have a dedicated fax line for our HP printer, but I always use this app bc it’s much easier to work with. So no need to get or keep a fax line. If only I could convince my stubborn mom to get rid of the line!
HP Smart for Mac
The HP smart is a good way to access mobile uses, printer setup settings, and various other useful tools. The software seems to work well. However, the development team seems to have left out a very important function for Apple Mac users that used to be in the old “HP Utility” application before “HP Smart” came around. The printers have a “scan to computer” function where you stand at the printer and load files and press the printers touch screen button to scan the loaded pages directly to a computer. This function can only be turned on to recognize a Mac computer to scan to by turning on the tool under the “HP Utility” scan settings on the computer itself and not through the printers webpage settings. Now that HP Utility is no more and we only have HP Smart this scan to computer setting is missing. There is no longer a way to scan straight from the printer to a Mac. Instead now you have to load the items to scan at the printer and then walk back to the Mac to press the scan button on the HP Smart app and then go back and forth to the printer again to retrieve the hard copy pages. Additionally, I assume an update to the software would be in the works to better support the apple silicon devices. The current version has to run in Rosetta.
Sleek but Awful
I logged in, which all on its own was not the best because multiple times it gave me an error message that was the equivalent of “something went wrong” without any explanation, after struggling with the app for 20min it finally connected at which point the instructions, which are repetitive and clear as mud, were to close the printer door which I did admittedly closed the wrong door and struggled for another 5 minutes. Finally, after going through all that the printer printed the first side of my sheet fine and then proceeded to print some sort of HP tester page on the other side (it held no information by the way) so I reprinted that sheet and moved on to the next which printed the first side fine but for the back side IT PRINTED IN TINY FONT I never figured out why, never changed the settings, never moved anything but the sheets and this happened twice then it printed the sheet right but was missing parts at the bottom so I tried again and yet again it printed in tiny font and then I ended up using 2 sheets of paper which for what ever reason worked and finally finished it up after and hour of struggle (this process started at 9:40 and ended at 11:10). I’ve struggled before with other hp stuff and the customer service are awful and I will NEVER be buying from these people again.
