  • If it's an HP wireless printer you can download HP ePrint software from The App Store and print directly from pictures on your iPad, email accounts, the web, and cloud storage that your iPad accesses.
    Other printer manufacturers may have similar software available, and there may be 3rd party apps too.

  • The best way is to use a printer with Air Print support. The Epson Workforce 2450 is an example. I use it to print anything from my patio to my office, about 30 ft away and it works fine. The key is "Air Print". Any printer with this feature is ok. The wireless feature is not enough.

  • No, but you can get Printer Pro on App Store to use any wireless printer, if your printer does not have wireless, Get and plug usb in the back of AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, or Time capsule
    Then open the app and your printer will be set up for Printer Pro
    Or use built in AirPrint (Most HP printers).

  • There is an app called PrinterPro that works very well for this. Your printer must be connected to your wireless network. You setup the app to print to that online printer. The app provides excellent results.

  • No need as the most of printers of HP have wireless connectivity and the old model of some printers that don't have the feature of wireless printing they are useless and you should upgrade your printer to laser jet
