  • Troubles with scanning


    By MTguy23
    When I start a scan job that is supposed to scan several pages, process them, and then upload them to Dropbox the job never finishes. It just spins on “Processing page x”, where x is the last page. Just keeps spinning. Never quits. I just have to force-kill the app. I’ve had to disable the final upload step and do it manually. It had previously been a really efficient way to process a bunch of multi-page scans. Today the printer/scanner had a real fit. It kept “processing” even after I force-killed it. I’d restart it, still “processing”. It finally lost network connectivity. I tried to get to the web interface to cycle power but the pages took forever to load and then wouldn’t execute correctly. Finally all connectivity disappeared, and the front screen went blank. After several tries I finally was able to get it to shut down. Started it up and tried scanning with manual processing and what I did worked fine. Seems like a race/memory leak or something. Is anyone else now having problems? I just upgraded to iPadOS 14.0.0. Five stars if it would work correctly again.
  • I am back HP!


    By MattyEMT
    I thought HP had abandoned its LOYAL customers when it discontinued the HPeprint application. While shopping today, I met an HP Rep who explained that I could continue to remote print using this new App! I can't tell you how relieved I was to learn how easy it was to setup remote printing again. I had set up a printer at grandma's house. She does not have a local computer to serve as a print server. I thought I had lost the ability to send her photos of her grandchild. This is a really big deal for so many HP customers. While the functionality is not identical, people who place printers on remote networks can with little effort continue to remotely print HURRAY!! For customers who swore to never purchase another HP product, you like I can feel better about HP. As for HP, always do your best to continue to support legacy products you have sold to your loyal customers. We buy printers for many decades. Thank you from the bottom (ventricles) of my heart.

  • Finally a printer that I can rely on


    By Hppygirl32
    I’ve had all sorts of printers, single printers, multi function monster of Printers and now I have an HP Officejet 5200 all in one. When I bought this I downloaded the app and thought ok now what? I usually just print from my computer or scan from the printer. I never had an app where I can print scan fax or create things from an app right on my phone. Everyone In Our house uses the app for school, work and personal business. I think my fav feature is the ability to scan from my phone multiple pages just by taking a picture of the pages. Then I can email, text, fax save all from my phone! It comes out like I ran it through the printer directly. This app is easy to use! I also signed up for the instant ink program right from the app which is a really great deal, and it is all managed from the app. Never run out of ink again! Download this app
  • PERFECT!!!


    By fb: Kord Inkmasta Berry
    Hi, I am a self-employed Tattoo Artist. I have tried several brands of printers along with the apps that come with them. I have an iphone 6s plus. I just recently purchased the HP Envy 4512 for quick use while out of town. This is my first hp printer in about 10 years. Epson printer app works great for my use, well at least i have gotten use to its minimal customization. I was blown away when i tested the direct mobile-to-printer capability because i wanted to print something really small to not waste ink. I could literally manually rotate and resize the image to my specification. I am absolutely so satisfied. Wow. I always wondered why these companies make an app for the products and you cant hardly do nothing on it. Technology is how we live now days and I'm so excited about this app. This is my first time doing a real review but i had to take the time out of day to let others know. Super excited!!!!!
  • If it is business critical, get an Epsom.


    By RedRoseAlways
    If you need a reliable printer that is business critical, return the hp while you can. Cute for home or casual college use but if you need it to be reliable for critical tasks, do not risk this product line. The app should clearly be called hpStupid, not hpSmart. I laugh at that welcome screen. I had just enough time to scan one very important, business critical document before work that was 15 pages long. Not too complicated of a task. So I scanned it with just seconds to spare before my ride to work. I first tapped share and save 15 images to phone so they would be safe. POOF. ALL GONE. The app went back to the main menu and my document was GONE. Well, at least it saved pictures of my .pdf to my photos so it's SOMEWHERE, that's why I clicked that option first below saving it to a.pdf. NOPE! It randomly threw the first three introductory pages in there that I DIDN'T need as much, but the important stuff: DEFINITELY NOT THERE. GONE. No time to rescan it all now, I'm at work without it using their epsom printer to get the job done right and on my lunch break I'll be shopping for a new epsom printer and tonight I'll be returning that crappy hp system.
  • It’s better but not great. Still very clunky but at least a step in the right direction


    By EponineB
    The most recent update seems to be better and easier to change page size, certain pages etc. However the app gives no real direction on how to actually do it and their online support is subpar at best. A few tips for i-phone users, but make work for others: Changing document size: Select your document or let automatically pull up from your phone. Select the circle on the bottom that says print to pull up the print preview. Then click on the document to pull up the submenu on the bottom that allows you to resize and move. Click buttons that says resize and move to see options. When finished select done at the top of the screen to save changes. Printing page range, quality, color, quantity, 2-sided etc: Select your document or let automatically open from your phone. Select the circle on the bottom that says print to pull up the print preview. Go to the bottom of the screen to the little line above the printer name and swipe up. This pulls up the menu with the other available options for printing. Swipe back down to close menu. Hopefully this helps as the app is not very intuitive. I don’t understand why the size changing function is not on the slide up menu with the rest of the options but at least it is an option again.
  • Very Useful App


    By Zach the Apple User
    I find this app to be quite useful as it gives me a variety of options of printing from my phone. One feature I just took advantage of was the ability to link to Google Drive. This is useful to me because my school uses Google drive heavily, and my school laptop only prints on school network printers. This app allows me to access my drive and print at home through my phone. My only complaint with the app is that when I am on the preview to print a document, it takes awhile for it to be ready to print as if it’s not connected. In a minute or two it will give me the option to print as its ready. This could be reasons other than the app though, as I have an older HP printer, and my home network can also factor in. If you have an HP printer, I definitely recommend trying this app. I don’t regret it.
  • Very Dissapointed


    By Dissapointed in Detroit
    I am very disappointed with the ink program. Upon starting I received two large cartridges. I didn’t print out ten pages when the color cartridge would not work. I kept getting an error message and though I would be contacted by HP. Then a week later my son needed something printed out for school. I would up going to the store and purchasing an ink cartridge so he could do his assignment. My credit card I used for the ink program expired about the same time and I did not respond to the emails they sent me regarding payment due and found out quickly that they take over your printer and you cannot use it until you are paid up. So all in all I’m paying them even though the cartridge they sent me was very short lived. I guess I’ll have to call them up and find out when I can get out of this program without them shutting down my printer. This program is nothing like I expected and in the long run I am paying much more than if I had just purchased cartridges from a local store.
  • Decent app


    By Cavan Stuntz
    I like the app its fairly easy to navigate. The printer is ok it uses a ton of ink and the low ink indicator is not very accurate I threw away a couple cartridges before figuring the stupid pop up was not very accurate it will print a lot more before needing to change it out and even after I put a new one it still pops up when I print from certain devices. And last it’s not compatible with a lot devices. Not sure if I just bought an odd model or what but the model above and below this model number seem to be compatible with everything. Guess I’m just not lucky with HP printers. Last one I bought was a diff. brand but it worked with all my laptops , phones and iPad. And didn’t beg for ink every two weeks. But it did break in about a year so. I guess this one with its faults is the best choice
  • Disappointing


    By TedVTedV123456789
    I can understand the ease of setting a device like a printer up with a phone. It’s a great idea, unfortunately it doesn’t actually work. I went through all the steps as outlined in the app when prompted ... and the process timed out. When I tried to redo it, the app said my printer was ready to go; it wasn’t and I couldn’t print anything. So I switched to my laptop, which I’d be printing with anyway. The software told me no ink was installed, because ... duh, the program on my phone hadn’t had a chance to even get that far. Anyway, the desktop app told me what was wrong, but not how to fix it. I opened a panel on the front of the printer and took care of it myself. Since then I’ve had any number of problems, from the printer not connecting to the app, to it printing test sheets for no reason, to it printing the same page multiple times despite my having set copies to “1” and clearing the job list. Long story short, this app would be great if it worked, but it doesn’t, and while I can get my printer to work (sort of), it doesn’t work very well...
