    Printing from an Acer Iconia A500

    Hi,

    I have a new Gmail just in my mailbox.
    I wish to print it out this email to my Brother HL 2142.
    I have configured AcerSync but I don't know how to send the Gmail email to the printer?

    Can anyone help please?

    Thanks

    Is you printer have a bluetooth capability?

    there are several ways to make a printout.

    1. print on PDF format and have it print on other PC/Laptop
    2. Using bluetooth capability, pairing your tablet to a bluetooth printer (and you know the rest)
    3. Install the Printer's driver and use the USB port so you can print. (search the driver for tablet via printer's website)

    BTW, you can copy the printer driver on your USB Flash if you can find the right driver for tablet (I guess)

    just some suggestions might work.

    Cheers!

    Today's free app on Amazon is PrintShare Mobile Print. I just tried it with my tablet and printer to print a web page and it worked great! I think this is the best print solution I have found for my tablet so far. It found both my wifi printers. But since it only had generic drivers for the Lexmark I have it using my HP Photosmart Plus printer.

    Printer share is a standalone app. Not a system-wide printer driver. To print gmail you have to give it permission to access your gmail account, and it won't print email from any non-gmail account as far as I can tell. A half way solution, and not bad for free. I'd certainly love to find an android tablet with ubiquitous printing across the system to any WiFi printer on my network. So far my Samsung galaxy 10.1 will print to "some" samsung printers, although not the laser printer I bought specifically for that tablet. My HTC Evo3D phone prints my Canon MP640, and HTC told me their tablets using Sense would also. Wish Google would get behind this and put printing in stock android to work on any tablet.

    The problem with not being able to print system wide is largely due to the fact that there aren't a lot of printers that have Android drivers. I think PrintShare Mobile Print is a great app for what it does and will be able to handle all of my printing needs. The only thing I can't get to work is the doc prints (Excel). It tries to download the needed info but never completes.

    I use Cortado Workplace to print from my A500.

    As long as your print device is connected to a network it should work. At home I print to a Brother MFC5890CN and at work I print to a Richo Aficio MP C4000 color photocopier.

    Cheers, Tim

    +1 to PrintShare
    I downloaded the premium version when it was the free app of the day a while back on Amazon's app store. I've used it on different networks, it detects whatever printers are there - both network printers and shared from Windows - and prints. No need to install drivers for each of the printers - it just works.
    It doesn't work all the time. Sometimes it can't see printers on a network or it can't print to them. Despite its limitations, it works most of the time and better than any printing solution I tried on my iPad.

    I use wireless HP printer, and just send or share to a custom hp email address, works really well, HP app allows more printing formats, paper sizes

    HTC EVO LTE 4g S-OFF(DirtyRacun) ROM:RLS1-Operation Jellybean KERNAL:Elementalx-EVO-4.2 RECOVERY:TWRP
    Viewsonic G-Tab ROM: G-HarmonyICS v6 RECOVERY:modified CWM
