Doesn’t airprint

Postby Patrickcaffe » Thu Feb 20, 2020 12:39 pm

Eversince I updated my ipad to ios12 and iphone to ios13 the app doesn’t print anymore. If i print through another app from the ipad everything works. Only not through wifibooth.

On an ipad with ios11 everything still works. Is there anything I can do to use the app again?

Hi PatrickCaffe,
Can you please make sure you have updated Wifibooth and SoloLink to the newest versions - Wifibooth is 4.11.5. You can find the version in Settings App -> Wifibooth.
Are you using SoloLink to print?
Please write a review for Wifibooth on the Apple App store! Indie developers like me really need people like you to review their apps. Instructions on how to write a review: http://goo.gl/w8NsDI.

OK. I don't have other reports of airprint not working, and this feature is used all the time by many users.
Can you please tell me exactly which version of iOS 13 is on the iPad, and, which printer you are using?
Also please tell me about your wifi setup.

That's a problem with OPrint, it does not properly work with iOS 13. Please try other software, there are alternatives to OPrint.
You can also try the option in Wifibooth called print server / manual when you connect the printer: to try this, in Wifibooth disconnect the printer and add it again

Oh, strange - never heard that reinstalling iOS fixes printing! Glad you got it working... well done!
