    Right now I have an HP Printer/scanner and and iPhone 5c with iOS7. I don't have home internet but I can turn on my iphone hotspot and through wifi, connect my phone directly to my printer, and print. Love it.

    Can this be done using a BlackBerry 10 device? Same scenario.

    Thanks!

    I use the printhand app and it works well with my brother printer. There is a free trial version if you want to make sure it works with your printer before paying the $5.

    I also have the Brother app from Snap, which is free and works ok. Maybe HP has a similar app from amazon or snap.

    Great, thanks for the info. Is that PrintHand app specifically for Brother branded printers? Or is it universal?

    I *think Apple and HP is using AirPrint of I'm not mistaken.

    Printhand works for many models, although I'm sure there are exceptions.

    I've had really good luck with it. I was able to connect to my friends canon printer and he couldn't connect through air print on his iPhone 5c. I've never tried an HP, though.

    I picked up PrinterShare Mobile Printer Premium from Amazon as the free app of the day recently. I have a Cannon Pixma printer connected through my local Wi-Fi network. The app works much better than any other I've tried, including Cannon's own two apps, along with several other 3rd party apps available. It's not cheap purchased, but I highly recommend it. Snap has a free version (not nearly as good), as well as the premium.
