1. Download the partner app for your printer If your home printer supports wireless printing, it’s worth consulting the product manual and downloading the official partner app for your device. Assuming you’ve misplaced the manual, head to the Google Play Store on Android or the App Store on iOS and search for the brand name – ‘HP’ or ‘Canon’, for example. Partner apps can prove very handy, as they allow you to control your printer and line up printing jobs from a smartphone or tablet on the same wi-fi network. Most will allow you to customise your prints, too, so you can adjust orientation, paper size or colour. Popular printing apps include: Canon Print Inkjet/Selphy (Android, iOS) – the official printing and scanning app for Canon Pixma, Maxify and Selphy printers. You can print PDF files and Microsoft Office documents and adjust your copy settings, which is handy if your printer doesn’t have its own built-in display. HP Smart (Android, iOS) – print and scan photos and documents directly from a mobile. HP Smart also lets you check your ink levels and you can order replacement cartridges right from the app. Samsung Mobile Print (Android) – allows you to print, scan or fax wirelessly from your Android smartphone or tablet. You can share your scans directly with Google Drive if you’re planning on keeping them in the cloud. Epson iPrint (Android, iOS) – print, scan and share documents without having to touch your printer. You can also take a picture on your smartphone and send that image to your printer remotely.
