Oh how far technology has come, scanning from my phone at last. If only it would scan on the first try, I often get connection issue when scanning a second document. But it's generally able to scan again after the failed connection notification. This app would be much more convenient if I could have some ability to remove pages and if I could name the file before I save it.

Bare minimum functions as far as i know, but one thing bugs the absolute mess out of me. Actually finding the image you want. Once you open Pictures, its just an unexplainable wreck, there will be pictures from a year ago at the most recent, no way to access certain folders of pictures, and good luck finding the actual picture you want printed. Sadly to my knowledge this is the only way to print things off my phone with this certain printer.

This app eventually gets the job done...usually. It is soooo slow. I also have an app for a Canon printer that works instantly. This app takes many minutes to print just a few pages. If you are printing in color it takes way too long. I tried printing a 78 page booklet. It took over 2 hours. It has also started to only flip pages on the short edge when printing double sided.
