scanning from 5520 to iPad in wireless direct mode ?

I have a Photosmart 5520 printer and a 3G  iPad - without any other computer equipment or WiFi network or

router in the house. The printing from the iPad to the 5520 in the Wireless direct mode works well.

My question is if I can scan from the 5520 to the iPad ? Have looked in the HP ePrint app for directions

or control buttons but can't find any. Is scanning from 5520 to iPad possible ?  Selecting  "scan to computer"

on the 5520 control panel does not work.

 

Looking for any helpful comments

Thanks

Johann

Hello Johann,

Scanning to an iOS device can be done by using the HP Printer Control app.

 

Be sure to temporarily connect your iPad to the 3G network and install the HP Printer Control app, then connect it back to the Wireless Direct connection to scan from your HP device:

Thanks Shlomi,

I am a bit confused now.

The HP ePrint app is already installed on the iPad. Is this the one you mean ?

But on the app I can not see any controls for scanning.

 

Thanks,

Johann

Hello Johan,

The HP ePrint app is a different app than the one I have mentioned above.

 

The HP Printer Control mobile app is a different one which also allow scanning.

 

simply open the Apple App Store, search for HP Printer Control and install it.

 

Through that app you will also be able to scan.

Hi Shlomi,

 

Yes, after I installed the app the scanner works now. I don't suppose I need the other app any more ?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Cheers from Western Australia

Hi Johan,

Great to hear that you are able to scan!

 

Indeed you do not need the HP ePrint app as your printer have native AirPrint support and you may print directly from iOS.

 

If you would like, the following document may give you a better view of the different mobile solutions.

Apple's AirPrint and the HP Printer Control app covers any ossibility of your printer with an iPad:

Hope it is all clear by now,

Shlomi
