How many times have you viewed documents or photos on your iPad and wished you could print those wirelessly without firing up your laptop or desktop.

There are several ways to print from your iPad. Here are some methods and apps to try, depending on the printer model you own:

1. AirPrint Compatible Printers
The easiest solution is to invest in a wireless printer that supports AirPrint technology. The AirPrint feature built into your iPad lets you wirelessly print to any AirPrint compatible printer. It is hassle-free, considering that you don’t need to download any software or install any printer drivers. Just make sure that your iPad has an updated iOS. Here’s a complete list of AirPrint-enabled printers.

The initial implementation of AirPrint also works with a handful of newer HP printers that support something HP calls ePrint. If you happen to have such a printer (HP has a list of them on its Website), and it’s on the same local network as the iPad, your iPad will be able to see it and print without any special configuration. (ePrint also gives your printer a private e-mail address, so you can also e-mail a document as an attachment, and it’ll print automatically.)

2.  Printer Apps for the iPad
If you do not own an AirPrint-enabled printer, there are alternative printing methods available. Several printer manufacturers have come out with iOS apps to help you print directly from your iPad to their portfolio of wireless printers , regardless of whether your printer is compatible with AirPrint or not. Here are some available apps:

A. HP ePrint Home & Biz App
Download the free HP ePrint Home & Biz app on your iPad to print documents, PDFs, photos, web pages, and email attachments. The app works with over 200 HP printer models.  Using the app, you will be able to connect directly to an HP printer available on a local wireless network and initiate the print job.

Another option is to look into buying one of HP’s printers with ePrint like HP Officejet 6100 e-Printer Wireless Color Printer. With an HP ePrint enabled printer, you can simply email the document or photo you want to print from your iPad to the printer’s email address and the file will automatically print. You could also use your iPad’s AirPrint feature.

HP Printer Control is also available for compatible all-in-one printers. This will also enable scanning and copying functionality from your iPad or iPhone. There is a guide and list of printers it is compatible with on their HP Printer Control page.

HP Printer Control is a free downloadable app available in iTunes App Store.

B. Epson iPrint App
The Epson iPrint app is a free downloadable app that lets you connect directly from your iPad to an Epson printer within your wireless network. Besides, documents, photos, PDFs and more, the app also supports printing files from cloud-based storage services such as DropBox and Evernote.

C. There are several other similar apps created by manufacturers for their printers:
