    I want to buy a wireless printer so my mom can print from her iPad. However, I've never printed wirelessly. Nor have I printed from an iPad. Any advice would be much appreciated. Anyone here print from their iPad? (She has the iPad 2, I believe) Apple says all iPads are able to print wirelessly. Just have to download an app.

    It's super easy. Just make sure you've got an apple compatible printer. Then they both have to be on the same Wifi network.

    It's super easy. Buy a printer that is compatible (check the apple website). Then they just have to be in the same wifi network. Very simple.

    I got lucky, I have a Brother Wifi printer, they have their own app that works with it, not sure if that helps :)

    If you're already buying a new printer, I'd go ahead and get one that's compatible. The apps I used were all crap and only worked about 50% of the time. I junked the printer and bought a $100 compatible Epson. I have never had an issue. No app needed, just push print, find printer and done. Good luck!

    Most HP's are compatible. Don't need an app.

    Bought an HP yesterday. I will be installing it Christmas Day. Thanks for the help. If I have any problems, I'll come back here. (Or best buy) ):
