Recommendations for iOS app to print to non-Airprint printer?
Posted by: S. Pupp

I would like to print from my iPhone, but my Airprint Canon printer has failed.

I have access to an old non-Airprint wifi Canon MX860, and a USB Brother laser printer.

Has anyone found an iOS app with or without the need for a PC server (I'd use my always-on home theater PC) that they have found to be particularly good?

Thanks in advance.

My wife (iPhone) and I (Android) just use the Canon software to print to/scan from our MF733 on our home network.

Several options in the article at the link

I use Printopia on those rare occasions when I need to print around home from an iOS device.

HandyPrint on my Mac has handled the problem nicely

I use Printer Pro for printing to my old Brother laser printer that is not AirPrint capable. Works great even with older iOS devices.

I appreciate all the suggestions.

With my home theater PC being WIndows 10 based, and with Printer Pro being discontinued just a couple weeks ago (boo, Readdle!), and with our printer being too old for use with the Canon software, I turned to alternativeto.net.

An alternative listed to Printer Pro was PaperCut Mobility Print, which is installed on a Mac, Windows, or Linux computer. There is nothing to install on the iPhone - the computer's printers are recognized as AirPrint printers. So far, so good - it works with my iPhone SE gen1, my wife's iPhone SE gen2, and the family iPad Air.
