Thank you 5/5
Rarely write reviews but I had to give Brother props for making my old MFC-7840W compatible with my iPhone!!!!
Installed on my phone, exported my doc to the app then clicked on print. That simple. Mission accomplished. Done Son.
Long story, but my laptop is dead and I urgently needed to print, sign, scan and email a document. I happened to have an old Brother printer with wireless capability. I plugged it in directly to my router, and this app found it immediately and I was quickly able to figure out how to save the document to the cloud and print it through the app, sign it, scan it and email it all through the app. The app completely controls the printer. So cool.
Works intermittently 1/5
Nicely built printer but so far as printing wirelessly it has problems. Impressed with the printer but not the developer who programmed the wireless part and / or this app.
Scan Errors 1/5
I have to scan documents 5-7 times before the app will work. First it tells me "disk full", then it tells me "scan error e003", but I can't find any information about how to clear the disk or what that error code means. Eventually the scan will come through, but never on the first try. I've only had the machine for 1 week I can't imagine that the memory is full already.
So much easier than whipping out the computer. I use this probably once a month with my home brother. Consistent results every time when printing and scanning. Simple and convenient- Great app.
Needs OneDrive for Business support 2/5
By Skydiver Bob 1701 1980
The OneDrive app has supported both personal and business accounts in a single app for almost a year now. Why doesn't this app?
Will you ever connect? 1/5
Have uninstalled and reinstalled this app at least 6 times in two days with the app "occasionally" connecting with the printer. So disappointed.
Works great 5/5
I use my phone to print and scan documents with this app. It also shows how much Ink there is for each color. Folow the instructions carefully to get it to work right ( it took some troubleshooting before I got it working). It's a great feature for the printer!
By New Yooser
After an hour of trying I still can't get my new Brother laser printer to work with this app. Deleting it now.
Brother app works perfectly 5/5
I was dissatisfied that my new printer would not work with my iPhone.
Turns out, with this app, it does and so much more.
Might require turning off printer and phone after downloading the app on to your phone. One of my 3 iPhones (the 5s) need a shut off/on to find the printer.
Very easy to use.
Has always worked for me. 5/5
I've had this app for a year or two now and I have to say that it has worked very well. It has a number of nice features - I haven't used all of them but they are there for the user's benefit.
Very Satisfied 5/5
Works great with iPhone 5 and Brother MFC-J475DW all-in-one.
Remote scan to pdf to email,
Bought an extra '475' for a family member so I can provide IT support over the phone with same app & printer.
Saved me! 5/5
My PC has been broken for months and I was afraid I'd never be able to scan from my home printer again. Until I had the bright idea to look for an app. Even my 3 year old wireless model worked perfectly! I scanned a 19 page document, converted it to a PDF, and emailed it along with saving it to my phone. No more having to scan sensitive personal info at work! I'm so happy. I can't vouch for the power of the app besides simple set up and pushing the "scan" button then following on screen directions, but I'm thrilled with it.
Works great 5/5
I am full timing Rving so i use my phone and iPad to access the internet. This app works perfect and easy with my brother printer, no problems.
Printing from apps on my iPad from my brother laser printer 1/5
By Little lady 10/31/74
I don't like this app, my printer connection to app is perfect if I only want to print pictures or directly from the web but if I want to go from an app such as iBooks or even word perfect I can't. The app can't be found on my printer app to print. That is what I mostly print from so for me this app is useless!
Very helpful app! 5/5
This app is much improved and has been very helpful for printing and scanning wirelessly with my apple products.
Scan not working 1/5
I can print but whenever i try to scan it tells me I can't connect and that i need to tirn off privacy mode on router but i never had it on...
To print or not to print, that is the question! 1/5
Two days ago i had to reinstall printer & software with all its updates. I have an MFC9340CW that this app no longer can find & I now have to put the printer in manually. OK, but 2 days ago I had the settings option so could print in duplex, 1 hour ago I had the settings option to print in duplex (this is a duplex printer & all settings in machine & its properties are set to utilize duplex), BUT NOW the settings lost the option for duplex & keeps spitting out single pages. Its bad enough that I cannot find the fix to use my Apple AirPrint which also disappeared 8 or so months ago, now I cannot get your app to function as it had been. This is the 4th Brother printer & I was happy with them. This is the LAST BROTHER PRINTER unless it gets a lot better fast!
No free pizza... but EVERYTHING else we need! 5/5
I have a black/white Brother LASER printer (HL-2280DW), which is not an airplay printer. That meant I couldn't print from any of my IOS devices, of which I have many; a hassle to be sure.
This app not only solves that problem, but it does so in an intuitive, ridiculously simple way.
The app recognizes the printer (provided both devices share a network), sets up the connection automatically, and you're ready to remotely scan and print from any IOS devices with the app.
I simply cannot say enough good things about how much more efficient this has made my printing and scanning, which I do on an almost daily basis. Not having to switch to a MacBook or iMac to print/scan is absolutely marvelous.
As an added bonus, the app can EASILY be linked to numerous cloud services like iCloud, Dropbox, Evernote, and more. That means you can import/export your scans or retrieve items for printing directly from those cloud-based storage interfaces of images, PDFs, etc...
Lastly, I absolutely love the built-in option to print directly from the in-Safari menu that appears when you select the "arrow pointing up from the rectangle" icon on web pages or content (e.g. PDF files). This allows for immediate printing from the web content without having to switch the content within apps.
You simply must have this app if you have a Brother printer and IOS-run devices. It's free. It's easy. It saves tremendous amounts of time. Honestly, I'm not sure what else you could ask of the app (free pizza?)
If 6 or more stars were an option, I'd give them. Ignore the petty 1-star reviews and try the FREE app. You have NOTHING to lose and a new "best friend app" to gain.
Bravo Brother: I'm a lifetime customer!

Please fix! 1/5
The new update is terrible. My printer refuses to acknowledge that my iPhone and it are on the same network and will not connect to Cloud Print.
Always prints darker than actual photo or files 4/5
By ZKA in Omaha, NE
Noticed using this app over the last year that it works but always prints files and photos much darker than the actual original with no options to edit output.
After "bug fix, cannot print" 1/5
After the bug fix, a message appeared telling me to disable something -- but do not understand what it is or where it is. Bottom line, cannot print.
Works fine, but no option to increase text size! 4/5
By done with Apple
Works quite well. I use it mainly for copying long items of text to the clipboard part of this app. Items such as instructions of how to do something--typically things with a long series of steps. Such as increasing the time an iPhone rings before sending the call to voicemail. For that, there are 6
Steps, several different numbers and symbols (*, #)to press in a specific sequence and it's much easier to print out those kinds of instructions rather than trying to short-term memorize the sequences.
But the printout from the clipboard in this app is about 6 or 7 pitch and not readable for those over 40 without a magnifying glass or jeweler's loupe.
Pleas give us an option to increase text size!
Can't figure out 2/5
My printer is on Ethernet. Seems like it has to be wifi?
Horrible printing quality on MFC-490CW 1/5
The app does not allow setting up printing quality and the default printing quality is horrible. Tried to print basic web page with text and an image from app's built in web browser and using the clipboard printing feature - both resulted in in horrible quality. Therefore my printer remains inaccessible from our home Apple iPads and iPhones. Will have to continue using Windows for printing even basic documents.
Doesn't work 1/5
Won't connect to wifi (no idea why)-- won't allow me to set up manually. Useless.
Sadly this app doesn't work. It can't read files in the iCloud. I was able to go to the PDF file I wanted to print from the web, however when you hit print preview, there was nothing to print.
Constant frustration 1/5
By Fight through
This app is almost completely useless for printing. I'm keeping it because it enables me to scan from my phone. If you need to print something, save yourself a lot of aggravation and use your computer.
Update app 2/5
Unable to go to back to home screen after making a selection.
Works for HL2270DW 5/5
In general, printing to a non-AirPrint printer is so painful that perhaps I'm being generous with the stars. But this app does work with my brother printer. No, you don't print directly from the app, but I place most of the blame on Apple. You send your open doc to this app (just as you might email the doc) and then you print it, which is a pain compared to just selecting a print function. While this might seem a bit convoluted, it not really that problematic, and did I mention it actually works?
Downloaded app in 30 seconds and was printing my bank statement from my iPhone in about 1 min
Very limited 2/5
Whether the fault lies with Apple or Brother, it is stupidly difficult to print anything like a pdf or an email. Apple iOS can't find an airprint printer and you can't open the document from the app because it's, ummm, where exactly? I just wanted to print a return label from Amazon and I have to educate the hell out of myself and do a dozen stupid human tricks to make it work.
It doesn't work 1/5
By Gamer 747
I installed the app, then the app found my wireless MFC printer.
Now I wanted to print a PDF attachment in an email, which I could easily find my printer from the PDF "share" icon. I select PRINT.
The app contacts the printer, then 10 sec later says printer is off-line !!
I tried many different settings within the app and the printer itself.
It just DOESN'T WORK .
Printing and Scanning with Brother MFC-495CW 5/5
Using the app is perfect. No issues printing from iCloud, web, etc
By Philly Avon chick
Used with my new Brother MFC-L2700DW printer and it worked perfectly! Photos, documents, from my screenshot or from files. I love it!!
LOST MY PRINTER FROM MOBILE DEVICES 1/5
It used to work, but now, NO!!!! iPad and iPhone WILL NOT CONNECT. Hey Brother, get with it. We are tired of being your beta testers.
Works perfectly! 5/5
Easy to set up and works great
Can't update firmware 2/5

Can't set resolution 3/5
By Sir LanceA Lot
I love being able to scan from my phone, but I can't see anywhere to set the resolution.
Works well enough 4/5
I only use this to print things now and then from my iPhone or iPad but so far so good.
It works perfect 5/5
Even using an old 2009 model printer.
I have been using this app for years for printing and scanning.
Works, but missing Box support. 3/5
It's a little annoying that they don't support Box, which has most of my files. However, the program works fine with the cloud services they do support. An update would be nice.
Can't properly print websites, often disconnects from the printer so I have to restart it
WATCH OUT DO NOT USE THIS APP SAY WITH OLD APP 1/5
One you use the new app YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR PRINTER, NO I INTERNET USE ON ANY APPLE PRODUCTS.
I SPENT HOURS ON THE PHONE WITH THEM!!
PLUS ON TOP OF THE GOGGLE LIST IS A EXPLAINING WHAT YOUR SYSTEM SAYS" PRIVACY SEPARATOR FIX IS FROM BROTHER!!
WARNING IT DOES NOT WORK. THEY REALLY SCREWED UP
eazy to use 5/5
By nor nor
So I needed my brother MFC465CN SUPPORTED. but after downing loading the ap and paying for it I find it is not supported
Not quite right 2/5
Can't actually access iCloud Drive even though there's an option. Only used chrome bowser to print web docs, instead of Safari. Can't access camera roll. Doesn't show Photo library in and understandable hierarchy.
Easy. Effective 5/5
I'm happy. Easy to set up and loads of features. Opted out of info and didn't feel tricked. I'm impressed honestly. Well done!
Not working at all after update!
