Side Effects Include: Anger, Frustration, Sadness, Buyers Remorse
Well in case you thought Canon could make a printer or scanner that worked without spending hours upon hours and frustration after frustration, think again. Canon has really made an idiot of themselves and their customers once again in the printer suicide family of products it appears that Canon, much like every other printer manufacturer since the dawn of humanity, has also failed to create a printer/scanner which offers even a solitary working function. Wait there more. Not only will you waste your time and money purchasing a canon brand printer scanner combo but you can download a dozen or so FREE apps to failing alongside thd corresponding printer scanner. These Canon Failed Products complement themselves quite terribly together. They’ve lowered the bar to even greater heights or should hypes because they sure do promote their nonworking garbage. Now I get to take this pile of trash back to the store for eighty dollars or maybe I’ll just tie it to my ankle and throw it over the nearest bridge; that seems like the only actual solution that Canon has left me with on this amazing Friday night. Thanks a lot for making ten broken apps and a scanner printer which has the sole Unique feature of NON-WORKING. -10 stars all day.
Works great on MX922
It worked great on my MX922. It needs to be linked to your WIFI router not only to your computer or just to the WIFI. Once the WIFI connection was complete the App worked fine on my Apple IOS 6s phone. I think my phone is connected to my WIFI and that is why it has to have that connection. If I had no WIFI and no computer, just a printer on a stand it might link direct. I have not tried this as My phone is linked through my WIFI, allowing me to print from around the house. Highly recommend, this my second cannon MX and they both work great. Just never let the ink run out, the heads overheat and warp. Replace tanks early.
Works with hotspot
I don’t really know how to feel about this app. It worked but only when I disconnected from my WiFi and switched to my iPhone hotspot instead. I guess I can’t fault the app or the printer for my router’s low signal strength of 60%. Although it would be nice if the app provided a little more help in troubleshooting and explaining that signal strength may be a problem to look for. I had to call canon and wait 40 minutes just to confirm this and switch to my hotspot. I recommend,if possible, just moving your printer next to your WiFi router or at least in close proximity. My printer is in my bedroom , router is in living room. Only gave 60% signal which is no good. If that’s not an option, just connect the printer to a phone hotspot. I will note that when I did this, I was printing directly from Gmail, I didn’t go through the canon print app. Hotspots are shaky so it may not work all the time. If these options don’t work for you, I say return the dang printer and just go to your local library or FedEX.
Seems to be working so far after device restart
I have had a Canon mx490 printer for over a year now and printing via this app had been very unreliable up till now. Would work for me sometimes but oftentimes the app would not recognize my printer so I could not print over wifi. But I read some reviews here and followed the instruction of a reviewer who said to restart the device and lo and behold, it actually worked! App found my printer right away and I was able to print finally. I guess it remains to be seen if it will continue to work. But I am hopeful that it will, though, because it recognized my printer quickly and adding it to the app was super easy which never happened before. Took off one star because of all the trouble I had before. It should have just worked to begin with imo.
Prints good but won’t stay connected
I just set up the printer yesterday and my first test prints came out very nice both from my phone and computer. I tried later in the evening to print something from my phone and it couldn’t access the printer and wanted me to reset my router but the problem wasn’t the router it was the printer shutting down and not turning back on when the print order was sent. This morning I turned the printer back on and it worked just fine no need to touch the router. One other issue, if I find a photo on my phone that I want to print and click on the print option it takes me to the app and I have to then scroll through my camera roll and find the photo all over again which is a pain because I have a lot of photos to go through.
I downloaded the Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY for my new Canon iX6820 printer. After I downloaded the app I had a lot of problems trying to connect with the WiFi. The reason why is because this app is for the iX6800 and mine is the iX6820, so is the reason I cannot connect? Yesterday I was able to actually print via WiFi, but today I can’t seem to connect because at the bottom of the page that displays a photo of the printer just above it, it says, iX6800. What happen between today and yesterday? Was there an update that I’m unaware of or what? Please help if anyone knows how to fix this problem.
iPhone users..don’t do it
Honestly, the most frustrating experience. I have headphones and other things that connect in seconds. After about an hour of it not connecting when attempting to print; boxed it up and returned this garbage product. Not going to waste any more time with useless apps tied to a product. Read helpful tips here from kind folks, tried restarting my phone, nope didn’t work and that’s where my relationship with Canon ends. Technology matters Canon and the thought of this occurring out of the gate with first time user or after updates, made me realize simple prints were not going to be simple and certainly not happening with this lousy app. So disappointing...There’s a need for consumers to print from devices. You blew it, I wish I could rate zero stars. I appreciate those who shared tips after they struggled; they get the 5 stars. : )
Printing to my New Canon Printer
Using this app to print to my Canon printer from my iPhone 6 worked marvelously. However for Christmas I bought myself an iPhone Xr and it seems to confuse the printer and when I print landscape it still goes portrait. This may because of the way the iPhone Xr takes several pictures when you push the button. Even when I select the crop mode and note it’s landscape it’s still printing portrait. I hope the developers heed this and fix whatever is failing. I like to print pictures to my picture printing printer from Canon. I bought this printer because it prints pictures. It even has an extra ink well for printing pictures. That means it costs more to refill my cartridges. Canon, please get on it!!
I love the printer. I don’t like the changes they made to the app. I used to be able to select more than one page at a time to print. This way I choose one page, than go back and choose another, and so on. And if I want to print out of order, because there is no preview of what I’ve chosen before I print, chances are great that I forget that I’ve already chosen a page. The update also messed up my printer and even if I chose to print 8 1/2 X 11 on the app, because I was printing from my photos my printer thought I wanted to print 4 X 6. The only way to correct that (I think) was to delete the app and reinstall it. Another bug to fix.
I absolutely love this app. I’ve been looking for something like this so I can print 4x6 photos straight from my phone. I LOVE this app. I works perfectly. The pictures print out perfectly. It immediately connected with my printer when I opened it up and I just picked the photos and put my photo paper in and it allows you to adjust it so if you want it landscape or vertical you can choose. So glad I found this app. Thank you for making an app like this for us 😊
Scan to iPadOS is basic
The app allows you to scan a multi page document and save as PDF, which is one better than Epson’s app where you have to scan one page at the time and save them individually. But this app lacks the ability to scan the maximum available area, which is useful for some book scanning. Instead it forces you to choose between A4 or letter or a bunch of strange card-size formats that no one uses. Please enable “max” area! Another usability issue is that there is no option to crop, rotate or delete pages in a multi page scan. In other words, this app is very basic, but it kind of works and is not too slow. It strikes me as superior to Epson’s and inferior to HP’s app.
Restart Your iPhone!
If you couldn't get printing over wifi to work, try again; restart your phone. It's in Canon's instructions to do so (buried.) Not super intuitive, but... Credit where credit is due. Once I restarted it worked with no other steps and printed quick. Maybe the app has since been updated, but I experienced no Byzantine setup issues other than the restart. That said, it's still not optimal; won't print anything from Pages or any of the other Apple Suite apps. I assume you could save them as PDFs. The old app was a LOT more trouble-free to operate, but I'm happy this one is somewhat better than the two star rating.
No Longer Works for PIXMA MX892 Printer
This app used to work with the Canon MX892 printer as recently as a few months ago. However with one of the recent version updates it no longer supports that printer and Canon has no alternative app to use. I've tried several and they all say that printer is not supported. I used to be able to print 8x10 photos using this app. Now I can only print 4x6 photos from my iPhone with no option to change the size. It's terrible customer service on Canon's part to not make their apps backward compatible. This printer isn't that old and otherwise works great. It's extremely annoying! I'll certainly buy another printer brand (HP, Elson) next time I need a printer unless Canon fixes this soon.
I was anticipating some problems after reading some of the negative reviews. Honestly, I’m not sure why this app has a low rating. I’ve been using it for a month now and I am having NO problems printing from my iPhone and iPad. It is easy and convenient. I appreciate the operation of this application. I don’t believe the problem is with this app but the users device instead. Try some troubleshooting steps first because this app works perfectly!
Great printer for the price
Bought this printer at Walmart for $19 with the added protection ($2) totaling $21. Wasn’t expecting much since didn’t do my research on this type of printer but just couldn’t lose with the price tag. It was easy to install after loading the app on my phone and started printing all the documents I needed straight from my phone with ease, so to say great printer for the price.
