What is Samsung Mobile Print PC app?
Samsung Mobile Print for PC is a free application that enables users to print photos, documents, and web pages directly from your smartphone or tablet. Samsung Mobile Print is not only compatible with your Android and iOS smart phones but also with your iPod Touch and tablet PC.
It connects your mobile device to a network connected Samsung printer or to a wireless printer through a Wi-Fi access point. Installing a new driver or configuring network settings isn’t necessary – just simply install the Samsung Mobile Print application, and it will automatically detect compatible Samsung printers. Besides printing photos, web pages, and PDFs, scanning is also supported. If you have a Samsung multifunction printer, scan any document into a JPG, PDF, or PNG format for quick and easy viewing on your mobile device.
How does it Work?
Before printing, Samsung Mobile Print for Windows app brings up a zoomable preview of the first page of a document, and displays others as selected thumbnails in a row along the bottom of the screen. The app allows image files to be rotated, cropped and cloned. Thumbnailed pages can be deselected simply by tapping on the large checkmark. Tapping on boxes in the upper-left-hand corner presents drop-downs for changing paper size, number of copies and print layout. The usual array of advanced output controls pop up by tapping a gear icon.
The app communicates using Wi-Fi, but it doesn’t matter if the printer supports Wi-Fi or not, as long as the printer is connected to a network that includes a Wi-Fi access point. For printers that offer Wi-Fi direct, like the CLX-4195FW, you can connect directly to the printer as an alternative, which is usually easier, and which I did for my tests.
Whichever approach you take, the first step for using the app is to make sure Wi-Fi is enabled in your phone or tablet and that you’re connected to the network or directly to the printer. Once you set up a connection the first time, the phone or tablet will automatically reconnect whenever it’s in range of the printer, as long as you have Wi-Fi turned on.
How to Print
Using Samsung Mobile Print for PC app is simple. When you launch the app, it shows tabs on the bottom of the screen for printing and scanning. Tap Print and you’ll see six icons, thankfully labeled with identifying text. The two that you might expect are Gallery, for printing image files, and Documents, for printing an assortment of Microsoft Office documents (DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX) plus PDF and TXT files. The other four icon choices let you find and print a Web page and print from Google Docs, Facebook, and Twitter.
To print, you start by choosing one of the icons. Tap Gallery, for example, to find JPG files, or Documents to find document files. In either case, after you pick a file, you’ll see a preview image, a Print button, and a button with the name of the currently selected printer.
To change print settings, including the printer to use if there’s more than one available, you tap the button with the printer name. Among the options you can then set are the number of copies, paper size, and whether to print in color or black and white.
One option that’s missing is a setting for landscape versus portrait mode.
