Like many others, this app no longer works for me. My Samsung phone used to connect easily to my printer, which definitely helped my productivity and simplified my printing tasks. Now it's can't find the printer and always says it is unavailable. It really hope this gets fixed, because it worked perfectly before and for some reason it's changed from a five-star app to a one-star one.

Printer is usually grayed out and cannot be re-added ("cannot add printer"). This has been a problem for years and brother just ignores it. They'd better fix it soon or I'll be buying laser printers from someone else. Update 2 years later: still not working. Still the same issue. I have always been a fan of these laser printers but this is unacceptable and extremely irritating.

Works well (when it works). This is NOT like a regular app that appears on the main screen (and in the App Folder). It's a plug-in that appears in either "Settings > Printing" or "Settings > Share&Connect." Once turned on, any other app that offers a print option can access your printer through this app. Will be 5-star when they make it an intuituve app, not a plug-in.
