If you need to print in a pinch because your laptop exploded, this is better than nothing.
If you need to manipulate the document whatsoever, you are in for a frustrating and long experience.
Crappy App for Crappy Printers 1/5
By Rofl Slayers
Very barebones and broken. Horrible UI, minimal features, and blatantly buggy. You can't even print in black and white for the printers I had set up with this app. Just stick with setting the printer up on your computer and using the iOS built in printing options.
A complete waste. Canon should be ashamed to produce such garbage. As previous poster said, no way to connect via wifi. Keeps trying to do a direct connection, which also fails. Seriously Canon. Last Canon printer. My next printer purchase will be after reading all app reviews in App Store.
Great app 5/5
By BabyBlack Hanzo
Super easy to use!
Terrible update useless product down 1/5
By Mrs Glasow
Ever since the "update" I haven't been able to print wirelessly and now I can't print with the cable so I'm stuck with the no printer and it looks like I'm going to have to buy one. Canon, it will not be another of yours. This is just in one of many issues I've had with this machine since I got it. Believing it would be wonderful to have a wireless printer I diligently did my research and found this product. It has had more issues, it sounds like a dying tugboat when it does work and it's just a terrible drain in your bank account since you're constantly putting ink in it. I'm going back to an HP printer and most people should follow my lead. I'd like to say I am also disabled and can't drive so you put me at a very big disadvantage. Do not put out unless they are truly tested. This thing is a hunk of junk now.
Easy to use 5/5
I purchased this for my mother for Mother's Day. When I was setting it up for her I read the reviews and was a bit scared. I have no idea how so many people are having problems with this app. It took 3 minutes from download to print wirelessly for this app to work. It does it's job and there was no hassle importing pictures from my camera roll. Maybe some people have trouble with their in home wifi. Or did not read the instructions in the box. It was a seamless experience.
You have ONE job! 1/5
First time I've ever written a review.
This app is so complicated that it is ridiculous. All we really need is an easy to use app that imports a document and prints it.
That should not be too hard. Come on Canon get your act together
It was amazing until it stopped being amazing 2/5
I used to print wirelessly photos and documents from my phone all the time. One day it could no longer communicate with my printer. I went on to update the app, my phone, and make sure the printer was working. When that didn't work I deleted the app and rebooted and followed the same protocol. When all else failed I tried to contact app support to troubleshoot and the app support doesn't even give any person to person support...
Needs more thoughtful UI 3/5
The app functions with my SELPHY CP1200 printer, but it's poorly designed. The thumbnail view for selecting photos is TINY, even on the iPad. It's nearly impossible to tell one photo from another. Once you do select photos to print, it prints them in the reverse order they were selected. It's really annoying to wait for the photo I want most to print at the end. Finally, there is no way to adjust the image before printing, not even cropping! If the image aspect ratio isn't 4:3, the app will crop the image without giving you any control over how it's cropped. If they gave just a little bit of thought to the user experience, it wouldn't be hard to make this a great app.
Not working with iPhone 7 plus 1/5
By WInk Daddi
My wife and I have iPhone 7 plus cellphones. I have installed this app and neither of us can print to our new Cannon TS9020. However I can print from my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 using this app. We have to transfer flies from our phones to my tablet or our desktop CPU to print anything. This really an inconvenience since we tend to use our phones more. The app opens and shows the printer but it just spools and times out. No matter what we try we can not get it to work.
By Bakers love
I can't print from a wireless device
Always having problems 1/5
My current problem is not being able to print .xls or .docx files from the app... I can print a .pdf file... when I select the document (.xls/.docx) no printer / air printer is found, but when I select the .pdf the printer comes up... I have a mg2900 series printer... it is not air print compatible which I understand, but why won't it allow me to print these certain files, but will allow me to print others???
Set-up is IMPOSSIBLE 1/5
By Eugene Ko
The set-up process to connect your phone to the printer should be revamped. This is the worst app ever.
No longer prints documents with Canon printer. You need apple airprinter.
Works great with Canon PIXMA 922 printer 5/5
Easy set up. Printed picture on my printer first time I tried; also works well with documents.
Setup was super easy! It scanned what I wanted it to and sent it to my camera roll. Awesome job!
Only has paper options of #10 envelopes or 4/6 pictures. It can't print a document. Useless to me.
All I have to say is that I am so incredibly annoyed with this app!!!!
Useless app 1/5
Printing on a non-airprint device from an Ipad is complicated, and this utility gives no help at all. I finish the installation, am able to align the print heads and print the test page, but there's no way to print a photo or a document. "Cannot connect to printer", and that's it. No error detection software or useful suggestions. Perhaps this is Apple's fault, but if Canon wants to sell this printer to Apple users, they'd better come up with some better software than this.
Worthless App, Worthless Printer 1/5
Bought the MG3022 and discovered it doesn't have AirPrint, which is fine, no problems. I thought. Installed this wonderful app and find out I can't send documents to the printer. When I tap "IMPORT TO PRINT" in the selection, it takes my document and sends it to the Canon app, and the app will attempt to print it via AirPrint. WHY DOES THE PRINTER HAVE AN APP IF IT'S GOING TO TRY AND USE AIRPRINT!?!? Apparently, I cannot print any form of document from any of my apple devices because the model I bought doesn't support AirPrint and Canon cannot properly develop an app to work around that. I know the new HP I'm going to exchange this paper weight for sure can.
Horrible app, terrible coded and lacks all needed functionality 1/5
By This app is horrible
This app I hoped would make up for the lack of features the stock wireless printing option Apples photos app has, it sadly does not. Nothing is customizable about your printing photo settings and what is customizable crashes or says the photo is not supported...
TRIED IM done, WHAT WHY am I MANAGED? I am a HOMEMAKER "MEAP" 1/5
i am not enterprize, I am not beta
why Is this meap/
o yes i read in my loggs
and btw i d not use iphone? why is ll this included in this apps
WHO ARE YOU
WHAT ARE YOU?
WE DONT HAVE JObs theirfore no one has a snitt of a rite to manage or allow/disallow anything STOP
the image was the most crappy thing i have ever printed on any printer using anything...
i dont Trust you and all the China-Japan Asian country /words...pluse I have seen before /pima app, doing creepy file copying Good Buye Stay Away from me please..
Never had a problem...till 3/5
I loved this app! I never had a problem with it until the new iPhone update. It went black one day and I could never get it back from waiting. As we speak, it is stuck on waiting and I can't get it off my phone.
Other than that, it worked great.
Worse than useless 1/5
This app is some hot garbage. Downloaded it in support of my Selphy printer (the printer is excellent). The app adds no functionality that the native print option on my iPhone already has, and performs less well to boot. Why does it even exist?
Worked great until update... 2/5
I have been using my iPhone 5s to print eBay labels for a few months. Would freeze occasionally, but worked great 99% of the time. Then there was an update and it has not worked once since. I reinstalled the app and reconnected it to the printer. Still it will not even begin to connect. Now I understand that bugs happen with updates. However over a month later nothing has been fixed, and I have seen pages of people with the same problem. They know it is a big issue, but are not providing a fix.
Agreed Horrible 1/5
Doesn't work for iPhone hope canon is working on it. Waste of time and money.
Prints only one page 1/5
I've been trying to print my car insurance for an hour. It will only print the second page for some reason. And I pretty much only need the first. Why print the second page 20 times? Why do I have to use this app instead of just AirPrint? This is really stupid. Thank god it's not my personal printer. It's my moms. Bad buy mom.
Works great 5/5
By Tommy P Macomb
Setup in minutes. Works great. Not sure why there are so many bad reviews.
Could be better 2/5
It will print- but from the back side of my printer, which I have to put paper in the back side! Looked at limited settings and no set up for the default of printing in the front (normal side) don't understand why this does it. I even downloaded the suggested business app and it does not support my canon printer. I even set the paper to 8x10 and still nothing. Does someone know how to fix this?
Canon print app 5/5
By John, the science guy
This app, both the iPhone and iPad versions worked perfectly. I didn't even have to tell it what printer I had. It not only chose the printer it set it up correctly. I'm happy!
Worthless for my printer cannon 3620 1/5
I don't understand why it won't work... it connects but then disconnects right away
I did everything it said to do but it won't work
It's a waste of time
It works great when you have brain 5/5
By Jiazheng Wei
It works just fine. I can print scan from my phone, do I need anything else? That's all I needed. If you have problem setting up Wi-Fi. Use google........ if you thinks this app is horrible for editing. Bro. Use other software this app is designed for print and scan.
Printer setup 5/5
I know there are a lot of bad reviews on setting up this printer app, but I had no trouble whatsoever. As a matter fact I think it's the easiest set up I've ever done. I was actually surprised because reading the reviews, I was thinking I was in it for the long haul, But it took maybe five minutes, and it's printing great. And the pictures look good too.
Works great 5/5
Great app. No issues at all.
This app is some crap 1/5
Do not buy a wireless canon printer. It is frustrating to deal with
Works fine 4/5
By G klepic
I don't understand all the negative reviews. It's a photo printer app like the old Canon EP app. Edit works, print works, size works. Maybe I'm missing something, but as a one trick pony it's solid. It could be more tolerant for removing photos from the queue, but you just have to click back enough to clear them.
All the bad reviews here should be for Apple, not Canon 5/5
Apple "print" functionality only works with apple airprint printers, so to print with this app you need to "share" with canon print. Works flawlessly from all apps once you figure that out.
The fact that apple chose not to make the print function extensible to third parties is lousy- the sort of anti-consumer monopolistic behavior Microsoft used to get dinged for. So, 1 star for apple, 5 stars for canon.
App is completely useless. Couldn't detect a printer if it was wired. Junk. Pure junk.
Amazing app I suggest you guys use it finds your printer instantly! Amazing app!
Really having a hard time with the 7700 printer. Brand new and having problems printing from iphone and tablet. Really hating this at the moment!
Great App! 5/5
This app works great! It scans and prints perfectly right off my phone! I haven't had any issues or crashes with it. I love how easy it is to do things from my phone instead of using my MacBook, and having to have to use a specific cable to plug in for printing or scanning.
I have a Canon SELPHY 1200 printer. This app does not let you see a preview before putting the picture. Good good luck getting the part of the picture you want to end up on the piece of paper. Also, there is zero editing functions on this app. It really is useless and horrible. And absolutely unacceptable since it is from the manufacturer of the printer.
Useless product 1/5
Poor design, poor performance, buggy, crashing. It takes 45 seconds to display a list of folders, which it has flattened so that dated folders from many years from under "iPhoto Events" are mingled in with all the top level folders. Why in hell would you do this? I select a photo I took on my phone and it says photo format us not supported? I tried a much older photo, thinking the one I took was too big. The older photo loaded but nothing could be done. I picked the crop icon and the app crashed.
Garbage. Why is the software printer makers provide always garbage? Without fail. We need to be able to rate something zero stars. Anything under three stars for more than 3 months needs to be rejected permanently or until reviewed by a human.
It doesn't allow you to print 2/5
Can't print anything of any importance like from my email or the web browser. Can only print pictures. And the only thing I attempted to print came out the size of a deck of cards. I got this printer to print off documents from my tablet and have not been able to. Useless.
I generally use the app for scanning legal docs, etc. A shared queuing function would be nice when my wife is printing and I need a scan. Instead of the app waiting its' turn, it just dumps you to try again later. Connection problems are always based on router settings or insufficient understanding of networks.
Doesn't support IOS 10 (no longer working for non-AirPrint printer) 1/5
The app now only searches for AirPrint printers to print to. My printer (mg2920) is added and I can access all of the utilities but I can no longer print.
The only workaround I've found (which is time consuming and doesn't allow me to print partial docs) is to open my files with Google Drive and use google print. :/
Would appreciate tech support
One great picture...but only one 1/5
After spending hours trying to set the CP1200 up on wifi (it connects but IOS can't find it) I finally got one picture to print with direct connect. Now I keep getting a failed to print error. I think I am sending the printer back to Amazon tomorrow.
So frustrating 1/5
Worked when I initially wirelessly connected everything (as did the old app, which this one replaced), but can no longer find the printer now (as was the case with the old app too). Aagghhh!!!!
Won't connect with my MG3022! 1/5
Very frustrating that I can't get the wifi connectivity working - auto or manually. This app is no good.
Poor sizing 2/5
Connection is fine. It's never failed to connect. Scan function works good. That's the good news. The bad news is that documents never come out formatted correctly. And honestly, they don't come out even close. A standard word document, properly formatted will come out significantly smaller, tabbed all wrong, truncated, wrapped. Basically for me the print function is worthless. App gets 1 star for connecting. 1 star for scanning. Total of 2. If you want to print, this isn't your solution.
