    One very important thing is pulling my nervous. Why there is no native printing function on our "loved" device???

    Please share your thoughts and advice for some good third party app that works for mentioned function.

    Thanks!!

    P.S. Any information that native printing function is coming in near future OS update??

    Never really thought about it because I usually just email stuff to myself but if a printer has a bluetooth connection you could probably pair the 2 devices...probably a way to hook them up on the same WiFi network too. Take this with a grain of salt as this is purely speculation.

    PrintHand in BlackBerry World will work with most major printers. There's a free version to test with your printer, but it actually works better than my printer's manufacturer app does. It is an Android app, but it performs quite smoothly, and the BlackBerry World version is much less expensive than the $9.99 they want for the same app from Amazon.

    I wouldn't hope for any new BB10 features. They don't have many devs left in house.

    I agree, printhand from BW is very...handy. I tried the free version then paid the $4.99CAD with no regret.

    Native solutions require cooperation with printer companies. Apple Airprint or Google CloudPrint are examples. Otherwise you have to use an 3rd party app.

    I have a network laser Samsung printer..Pretty cheap now, about 100 bucks... I have downloaded the android Samsung printer app.. It's in fact really handy.. share anything from anywhere in the OS to print over wifi and it prints.. I can also scan directly to my phone as well.. Don't know what printer you have but try the Android app for it and it might just work perfect..

    I recommend you try the Hammermill (Print Hammermill) app. It is free. It is a paper company, not a printer company so they make it work with many brands of printers. They just want you to use their paper, not buy a printer from them. I have Brother and Epson printers and I don't even bother to use their print apps anymore. Hammermill works fine.

    It's not in BlackBerry World, it's in the Amazon Appstore.

    We have Brother printers, and the iPrint and Scan version from Google play (using Cobalt's app store) works mahvelously. It includes a scan function that's somewhat redundant. The advantage is that I've already paid for it by buying the brother printers. Other major vendors also seem to have print apps in the play store as well.

    The advantage of an app like PrintHand is that you're able to use a wide range of printers. I prefer that since I have multiple devices I need to use depending on where I am so instead of having separate Ricoh, HP, Canon, or other manufacturer specific apps, I have one that works with all of them.

    Everyone's needs may vary, but at least there are some very good options available.

    People who work in enterprise or large businesses. You know, the BlackBerry demographic.
