    Stated I could not get Licence (brooka Nov 2 2021). Amazingly received an email with Licence Code included. Did PayPal stuff up? Quite likely (been ripped off by them before). Did handyPrint simply take a LONG time to respond? Again, don't know; anyway I now have my Licence. The app performed ok during Trial so it probably will now. You'll hear from me if it doesn't!

    I used it during the trial but when I donated to get a license I never received one. Had to open a PayPal dispute because they never responded to emails.

    TL;DR: Ditch handyPrint, get Printopia. I used handyPrint for many years without problems...but as of Catalina, handyPrint seems to have very mixed results. It stopped working on my machines, won't even install. I've even used AppCleaner to completely remove it, restarted, and tried installing the latest version (5.5.0 as of this post). It won't even install. Downloaded the latest version of Printopia, launched it, and AirPrint started working again. The host Mac still needs to be running, but unlike handyPrint, does not need to be logged in. The Printopia daemon runs invisibly in the background. Printopia's $20 cost has already saved me over $40 in cussing. Well worth it.

    Handy Print 5.5 does not work when my iMac sleeps using Mohave 10.14..3 Did not work with 10.14.2 either. Wasted $20 on this app.! I was required to pay that much even though I was a previous customer. I hoped it would be worth the additional money, but it doesn't work. Looking for something that actually works!

    Hi guys. Has anyone been able to install this with the latest Sierra? SIP prevents it from installing. I've checked the site and no updates yet from the developer to fix this.

    A great little app, printing wonderfully to any of my printers, include VIPRiser and seems to work great! Brilliant. Amazing Apple couldn't have figured this one out themselves!! Took two Canadians to do it, figures! Congrats guys.

    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.
