    DROID X - Print directly from phone

    Can I print directly from my DROID X?


    Yes, the DROID X can print to a Bluetooth enabled printer or it can seek out local retailers who can print your photo.

    While viewing a picture in Gallery:
    Press Menu, press More
    • Touch Bluetooth to scan for and select available bluetooth printers to print out your photo.
    • Touch Print to Retail to have your handset search for nearby retailers who can print your photo.

    I know there's an app called PrinterShare, but they don't have drivers for my printer, last I checked. No BT here either. I think I may give the Print to Retail thing a shot once I have some more photos worth printing and see what that experience is like.

    Hopefully the printer companies write some for thier products, its probably the only thing I miss from windows mobile is the HP app, found my wifi printer with no issues and printed great! Other than that windows mobile was just awful, cust. roms help, but its always slower than it should be.

    There is another app in the market called CyPria. I have not used it, but saw it as I was perusing so I thought I would share

    I have an HP5500C printer with Bluetooth and it does work. However, you have no formatting options whatsoever, so this causes the printers to be relatively worthless. For instance, if you take a picture and try to print it, the orientation is off, and parts get cut off. Text is either not wrapped and goes off the side or it is too large or way to small to see.

    What it needs is a traditional print setup dialog to allow you to adjust such things.
