Ratings and Reviews
Surprised how easy to set up!
While the app was downloading I decided to read the reviews and I thought what am I getting into - many negative reviews.
I charged the HP sprocket, connected it to my iPhone, loaded the paper and looked for a photo to print. To my surprise it went so smooth I couldn’t believe it. I love it!
I made a family photo tree of every member including pets. Now I can’t wait until Xmas to show off my fabulous photo Xmas tree.
And instead of name tags on presents I put their picture on package.
I just can’t stop looking for photos and print.

Hi Nakita77, you are so creative!! We LOVE your ideas for using your sprocket. Pets absolutely are part of the family tree :-) and using photos of the gift recipient as name tags - SO COOL and personal!! Thank you for your review and for sharing your brilliant ideas!!
Wish i could like this app...
There is a lot of nice things for the user experience and aesthetics of this app. Unfortunately using it is still a frustrating experience. It’s hard to tell when the printer is actually on or not (that is also a problem of the actual hardware). Most of the photos print out too washed out or overly splotchy compared to the image on the app.
The most annoying but hopefully easy to fix thing: it’s impossible to choose the crop on the photo—the standard iPhone photo is just a bit too big for the printed paper and there’s no way to adjust in the app what part of the photo gets cut off, so I’ve printed a bunch of photos with someone’s head or face cut off. Even when i crop the photo differently in the iPhone photo editor it still shows up with the wrong proportions on the sprocket app and print. What’s the point of printing the photo when it doesn’t really show what i actually want to be printed....please i hope there will be a feature soon to choose what is in the printed frame of the print—i really want to like the sprocket and this app.

Hi "Sad", sorry to hear about your frustration. We will try to alleviate it. :-) There is an 'Auto Off' setting (and a 'Sleep Timer' setting for HP Sprocket 200) you can modify. In the sprocket app, tap on the menu icon (3 bars in the upper left corner), tap 'sprocket' tap 'Printer Settings' and set the value(s) to what you would like. You can also see the 'Device State' and 'Battery' level in this menu. If your printer is on, you will see a green light and 'Connected' at the top of the screen in the main menu. Additionally, when viewing a photo in the preview screen, you will see a green dot on the printer icon at the bottom of the screen if your printer is on. There are several things you can do to improve the print quality (PQ): 1. Disable Embedded Experiences if you are not using this feature. To do so, go into the sprocket menu, (3 bars in upper left-hand corner of the app), tap on "sprocket", tap on "App Settings" and then tap on the button next to "Embedded Experiences" if it is enabled. 2. Always use the colored Print Quality Card that comes with each paper pack. It will pass through the HP Sprocket Photo Printer automatically before the first print job. It cleans and calibrates the printer for that specific paper pack. Discard the Print Quality Card after you have printed all ten sheets in that pack. Sometimes running the sheet through the printer 3-4 times can help. 3. Please be sure to always use the latest app version and update the printer firmware when available. 4. When you open a photo in the app preview mode, tap on "Edit" and then tap the Wand to apply the Photofix feature. You can view additional PQ tips on this support document: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05660842/. Regarding the wrong proportions, when you open a photo in the preview screen, you can use a single finger to double tap to fit/fill, or you can use two fingers to punch/zoom. We hope this helps - we want you to love your sprocket!
That stupid blue paper!!
So I have the dumbest ex-wife, and I understand I shouldn’t be taking a star from your app for her error, but I also feel like there should be a large warning in place for people as ignorant as she is!! I honestly don’t know if you had the warning in there but she said she “had no idea that the blue piece was important, thought it was just for shipping protection....” anyway, I bring it up because the picture quality without it was MASSIVELY different than with it, and I say that because that’s the only difference I could infer between my sisters, and the one I bought for my son! It is a super fun printer and I love everything about it EXCEPT the need for the blue smart sh!T-sheet, and the lack of 5 warning labels in red saying “do not throw away the blue piece of paper!!!! Thanks for reading this horrible rant, 5/5 stars for the printer WITH the blue paper 4/5 without!
