- Question: How can I tell when there is new stuff added to an existing print app?
Using print apps is one of the things I like most about my web-connected printer and after talking with so many of you over the past several months, I’ve discovered that you enjoy them too. However, I discovered that some people aren’t aware that we’re not only adding new print apps regularly, but we’re also refreshing content within the apps as well.
So here’s the good news. It’s simple to check to see if there are new apps and new content.
To find new print apps:
- If you have a touchscreen model, find the “Get More” button on your panel and follow the directions on how to add a new print app I posted on the blog.
- If you have a non-touchscreen model, just visit the HP ePrintCenter to discover new apps and add them to your printer. On the “Apps” tab there is a sub-tab called “Get More” that will enable you to add new apps and delete ones you don’t use, right from the HP ePrintCenter.
To find new content in print apps you already have:
Whether you have a touchscreen or non-touchscreen model, take a close look at the print app icons. Some of the icons may have a blue “halo” around them. This indicates new content has been refreshed since the last time you or someone in your household launched the app. This is how I figured out the AOL Kids print app, MapQuest print app, and Disney print app had new content waiting for me (and by the way, Disney’s new Toy Story 3 printable content made one of my Buzz Lightyear-loving sons VERY happy – there are lots of new coloring pages!).
Hope these tips help you get even more from your printer.
