How to print from an iPad using Samsung Mobile Print app

Here at Printerbase, we like to make printing easy for everyone and that includes taking a close look at features such as the Samsung Mobile Print app.

The Samsung Mobile Print app is available free of charge from the iTunes app store, with the universal app being completely compatible with the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.  There is also an Android version of the Samsung Mobile Print app available, though, for the purposes of this article, we’ll be focusing on printing from an iPad.

With the Samsung Mobile Print app, you can print to any Samsung printer, with wireless or network connectivity, as long as they are on the same LAN as your iPad.  The app also allows you to scan from any Samsung multifunction printer, such as the Samsung CLX-6260ND.

After using the Samsung Mobile Print app to print from an iPad, everyone at Printerbase has commented on how the app was easy to use, with clear, simple instructions.  Also, another of the key aspects that make the Samsung Mobile Print app so impressive is the wide range of print and scan options, as well as the convenient file transfer between computer and app.

There are a couple of improvements needed, especially as Google Docs is the only cloud-based software that the app supports direct printing from. Occasionally, printing and scanning can be affected by memory issues, though, there is a very good help section that deals with most problems.  However, overall, we were more than happy with its iPad printing capabilities – particularly PDFs, images and from Office.

Everything considered – we would definitely recommend the Samsung Mobile Print app if you want to scan and print with an iPad.

Check out our video below, which shows you how to print from an iPad using both the Samsung M2885FW and Samsung C1810W:

Since I installed IOS 11 this printer app won’t work anymore. It won’t load my photos apart from a few and when I try to preview the screen goes black and the app closes. Will still print if I press PRINT only but with only about 10 photos and not the usual 1,000 , I have no choices. Won’t set up email anymore either. All was working perfect prior to install of IOS 11. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling app to no avail.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, it sounds as though the app itself is not supported by your latest iOS install. Samsung no longer operate a print business, which makes it extremely unlikely that there will be an updated app available in the future to support newer OS. However, it may be worth speaking to HP technical (0207 660 0596 – these can help with Samsung) to see if they are able to advise if they will be providing software support in their stead.

I hope this helps.
