    I felt I should warn anyone looking into buying a Samsung printer due to the advertised Windows Phone printing app.

    I just did so, and it turns out that you can only get the Samsung printer app on Samsung branded Windows phones. I would have seen that if I had investigated more thoroughly, so it's technically my own fault, but they buried that fact. :(

    As far as I can tell, the only printer brands that can be used on Windows phone are Brother and Xerox, and Xerox requires you to be an enterprise customer to use their app.

    There's also some kind of workaround involving Google Cloud, but I'm not interested in that because I'm done with Google, Chrome, etc. Plus, I don't trust Google not to block WP devices at some point given their poor relations with Microsoft.

    Anyway, just make sure you don't get tricked by Samsung's claim. You get NO printer app unless you buy a Samsung WP phone.

    Too bad nobody wants to support any other cloud printing services besides Google... I'd use them in a heartbeat.

    Couldn't you get it with the proxy trick? You're new here, so not sure you know about it. The KODAK app for Windows Phone is out there too BTW.

    Google Cloud works, and makes our phones useable, since ms don't support it in the OS. Besides since many print manufacturers use google cloud print I don't think they remove the WP support..

    But what about winphoneprint app?
