handyPrint is the next generation software that will be compatible with OS X 10.7 and beyond. It is a complete re-write of the original and no longer depends on Apple's support of AirPrint inside the OS. What that means is that even if Apple remove support for Airprint is future Mac OS X update it will keep running. The new release is no longer requiring "Administrator" privileges either. This is a good thing for the security conscious. The down side is that AirPrint will only work if your are logged in using the user that activated AirPrint. This new version also allow you to AirPrint to non local shared printers like an more...

Version 5.0.8 seems to even work in OS X 10.10 public beta.

Trial lasts 14days. THEN Requires a donation of more than $5 and you WILL need Internet connection for it to work. You can upgrade to the PRO version that doesn't need Internet to work, just local WiFi and an extra $20 to buy.
This app is very basic and not worth $25+ defiantly an attempt to cheat you out of your money. Steer clear

Won't be upgrading. It's really annoying to be told you are forced to pay for a "donation." Are we idiots? That's like my government telling me that I may "voluntarily" pay income tax. Anyway, I can't see if this would even work with my iPad which has been upgraded to iOS7.

I know how you feel. I am also dissapointed with this product. It says donationware but when I used it after trial, it keep bugging me for donation. It refuse to work without donation. It is like people telling you something is free but then ask you for money once you start using it.

Ver 5x now available, Maverick ready (works fine on my ML).

$5 (previous payments for previous versions are credited towards the $5)

Is now an app, instead of pref pane.

v4.1.2 seemed not to be working with OSX 10.9 Maverick

Prefpane is crashing instantly, v3.1.5 is working fine

I have to force quitting all the time and although I trashed Handyprint I still cannot get to my printer...SOMETHING WENT VERY WRONG, can anyone help? Am I the only one?? ( Printers : Epson Stylus Photo R2400 and Canon IP100)
Thank you

MacUpDate Admins -- a new version has been released. Please note the name change.

What is new in this release:
v3.1.1 (Sept 23 2012):

- Rebranded application to handyPrint.

- Improved installer to handle closing of PrefPane.

- Added a new feature that will restart the Daemon after the computer wakes up from sleep. Should help with some exceptional cases.

- Other minor bug fixes.

True, but still confusing because they call it a "donation" that is required. Dear dev, that is *not* a donation.
