    Hello gents. Just trying to get some documents printed on my Canon MX532 via WiFi. Can't find an option on the Passport or an App to download. How do you guys print from our Passports? Thanks,

    PS - is there a way to get the battery percentage to display on the notification bar?

    The only print service that ever worked for me on BB10 was PrintHand from BlackBerry World.

    Unfortunately I can't setup a payment method, keeps generating errors. Downloaded the BBW "Payment Option" and still won't work.

    Try contacting the developer?

    I have 2 apps that I can use with my multi-function Brother. One is the android Brother iPrint&Scan app that I obtained from the APKmirror app store and the other is PrintHand Premium which I purchased from the Amazon appstore (just had an update 3 days ago to my surprise). Both work quite well for me.

    I would suggest trying something here: https://www.apkmirror.com/?post_type...&s=canon+print but it may be lots of trial and error. Look for an apk that has a minimum requirement of android 4.3 for starters since 4.3 is the runtime in BB10.

    When on the home screen drag your finger up from the bottom of screen and hold - you will see the percentage at the top left of screen.

    Thank you. I had tried to get it from BBW and couldn't pay for the upgrade. Went to amazon and purchased it there. $13.99 CDN. Works as expected.

    Well, I contacted BlackBerry as I was trying to purchase from BBW and they were very helpful, not! Told me not to sideload apps! Hahaha

    Nice! Thank you. Is there a way to leave it visible up there?

    And guessing! Lol. Almost have this beautiful phone to where it can be used daily. Really appreciate all the help here! I finally get why BB10 is so revered! Cheers,

    It works great for the basic tasks. It just gets a little dicey when you need a good (secure) browser, and whatever important apps you use.

    True. It is an awesome device though if someone doesn't mind all the work arounds. I love the challenge!

    I can't remember exactly, but I think Brother had the iPrint&Scan native BB10 app on BlackberryWorld (or was it always an Amazon/Android app?) and they dropped it a while back (too bad, it probably would still sell them a few extra printers....that's why I got theirs in the first place) . I think if you search out there for the bb10 version you might find one...it even worked for the Playbook. Though I don't know how reliable the provider is.

    Yes, it was an android port from years ago but was removed. The updated android apk (my version is 2.2.2.1) works fine and I have an even older version in my PlayBook that still works fine.
