    Printing with Thrive

    Is it possible to print documents directly from the Thrive? I have a networked laser printer, if my Thrive is connected to my network, is there an app that will provide basic printing features?

    The Thrive comes with an app called Printer Share that I believe is supposed to let us print via a network. Unfortunately my printer doesn't support that, or I'd've tried it already.

    Just got an LG Vortex. Stock, rooted w/Gingerbreak exploit.
    16 Gb Thrive - Stock, not rooted yet.

    Is there any way of printing without a network? I take my tablet with my in my truck when I make estimates on parking lots, and I'd like to do my estimate and print out a contract while I'm there on the jobsite.

    Fantom,
    If you have a printer in your truck thats a wireless printer, Print share will find it...As far as I know though you can't connect with USB. Also after you print 5 pages in the free edition you need to buy it..for 12.95. Not too bad except printing web pages is a little clumsy.

    To print a web page, you have to go into the printshare app..select web pages, then type in, or paste the url for teh page you want to print..then hit "print" at bottom of screen. it works...but like I said..a little clumsy.

    For email..you can only print emails from gmail unless you go into webmail..and go to say hotmail or yahoo and get you email there..then you can print the page as a webpage..after of course you copy and paste the url link into print share. Hopefully eventually we'll be able to print right from apps..but right now...no.

    Will it find a wireless printer even without wifi or a network? I keep a cheapy $30 epson something or other in the truck, so if something happens, meh. But if it will work without netowork or wifi, then I'll spend a few bucks on a wireless printer. I don't like to bring my laptop with me, and leave it in the truck, especially in some of the less savory neighborhoods.
