    Installing CHROME on my PC and CLOUD on my Droid should enable me to print to my BT printer. Ok. I'll try it. But Droid direct to BT seems like it would be more efficient.

    I use the HP print app works great over the wifi network. You can print any document on the phone including photos. You can print from drop ox or Googledocs.

    Don't know if this thread was ever solved, but here's my contribution. I got Cloud Print today & it's fantastic. You'll need Google Chrome on whatever computer you plan to print from.
    So far I've found that many things that can be printed so long as the two up arrows that appear in Gallery appear. Then scroll down to Downloaded Apps and from there choose Cloud Print. It takes about 10 seconds (on a Sunday afternoon) for the command to get to the computer from. What is Awesome is that if the printer is offline or off, your print will remain in a Que until the printer comes back online. Having a Google account, which we all do for gmail, and running Google Chrome is the only requirement. Not tested thoroughly to see the quality/font, but the one mock print I captured with CamScanner & I sent to Cloud Print came out in the "quality" it was photographed in by CamScanner.

    Here's a few of the first FAQ's from Google,
    Google Cloud Print Help

    What kind of printers can I print to using Google Cloud Print?
    - Google Cloud Print can print to Cloud Ready printers, which connect directly to the web and don’t require a PC to setup. Google Cloud Print can also connect to existing (classic) printers that are plugged into a Windows or Mac computer with Internet access, using the Google Cloud Print connector in Google Chrome.

    - For the best Google Cloud Print experience, we recommend that you use a Cloud Ready printer. Cloud Ready printers connect directly to the web and don’t require a PC to setup: you can connect one to your Google Cloud Print account in seconds, and immediately start printing to it.


    How do I connect my printer to Google Cloud Print?
    - To connect a Cloud Ready printer to Google Cloud Print, follow the instructions for connecting Cloud Ready printers.
    - To connect your classic printer, you will need to install Google Chrome on a Mac or Windows computer that is connected to your printer. Once installed, enable the Google Cloud Print connector in Google Chrome.

    How do I print to my Google Cloud Printer printer?

    - The steps you take to print will vary from application to application. Find applications that allow you to print to Google Cloud Print.
    - On Chromebooks, click the wrench and select Print to print the webpage you are viewing (you can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P).



    And to think I almost went with PrinterShare Premium 2 days ago when it was Amazon's app of the day (regular cost is $12.95)and their "basic" app which is free but you have limited amounts (I think 20 print commands) and then you have to buy more (choice of 100 or unlimited).

    Cloud Print Rocks!
