I Googled for reviews of Smart Phone Apps that support legacy printers (no wifi support) and stumbled across an app called Cloud Print. I installed it and it works as advertised.

My question is: Have any of you installed an app to print from your smart phone and what app would you recommend?

P.C. – Windows XP SP3
Phone – Google/Android/Samsung GS3

Price? Prefer free but all options will be appreciated.

Legacy printers are ones without Wi-Fi? I thought you meant printers that use the LPT port. I usually have no need to print something out of my phone, mostly because I don't print much anyway.

But just to humor you, I did find this http://www.labnol.org/internet/print-fr ... nes/17827/

LOL… You are correct… I should have tempered my post as a comparison of today’s technology!

Thanks for posting the link! However, that link affirms the use of ‘Cloud Print’:

Update: You can also use Google Cloud Print for remote printing


It appears that 'Cloud Print' may be an acceptable option!

Thanks for your help! :D
