Did not work on my Android 7 device over WiFi. Entering IP address manually shows the printer but printing to it did not work. Automatic search takes forever... It is older network printer HL-4040CN, which isn't in the list of supported models. I wonder why...
My printer has a good connection to my wifi and yet this app can't connect to it. More than that, the app suggests it's MY fault, that I'm dumb and don't know how wifi works. Well my printer is in fact connected, and yes it is connected to the correct wifi, yes the same wifi my phone is connected to, but the app still won't connect to the printer! And no turning it off and on again does not help. And even if it did, how dumb would it be that I have to turn my printer of and on just to get this stupid app to work?? Terrible app. Does NOT do what it's supposed to. Not for me anyway.
This app Works well most of the time and gives excellent results. The reason for 4 vs 5 starts is when it doesn't work it is very frustrating and there doesn't seem to be A tweak to make it work. That said I print pictures and documents with it and it detects what you are printing and paper type in the printer well.
Update: I am currently thinking about returning this printer. Printing from the app on the phone is so slow I might as well buy a non laser printer. It just took me 8 minutes to print 14 pages. Unacceptable. The worst part about owning a Brother printer is the app. I have never used something so slow. It takes forever processing the picture and then another forever once you hit print. Not a time saver like the HP app. Running the S8, not an outdated phone. Not impressed. Love my printer though. Its too bad they cant have the whole package.
When this app functions as it should, it's great. But man it is glitchy. You never know if it will work or not, sometimes it takes ages to connect or "process." And now it is telling me "internal error: cannot continue." all the time. So, not even sure what to do at that point to troubleshoot it. I always end up just printing elsewhere lately. Pretty disappointed.
Had installed it then got to the EULA and it says I have to agree to sending my printing through the Google cloud and subjected to Google Analytics? All I want to do is print through my wifi to the printer sitting right next to me. I tapped NO to the EULA and immediately uninstalled. I'll stick to the old-fashioned way of printing from my laptops.
