Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

Uniquely designed to work with Selphy, Maxima and Pixma, the Canon PRINT Inkjet app allows you to print and scan documents, images and more from and to your smartphone and tablets. 

Interface and Design 8/10

Designed and put together with a simple user interface, the app features clear cut on-screen instructions with all its functions listed on the main menu. With two basic functions including printing an image or a document, you can also see the scanning option as well as the choice of whether you want to capture a photograph on the spot for printing. On printing each image or document, you can see the detailed information listed below including the type of paper, and the size and magnification levels, before you hit “print”.

Key Functions 9/10

The Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app comes with an array of different features including printing and scanning images up to 39 JPEG files all at once. It can print web pages, documents off Microsoft Office and PDF files. Other key functions include trimming of photographs, scanning and saving documents on to your device as PDF or as JPEG images.

The app allows you to connect wirelessly to Cloud and other supported apps like Pixma, Maximy and Selphy and you can also print documents directly from different social media platforms. The easy capture option gives you the choice of taking a picture of an important document and with the correction filter you can automatically adjust the level of clarity of the image. The functionality of the app is great and very reliable, but one must be sure to correctly adjust the image or document before printing as incorrectly pacing an image or document can cause errors while printing. 

Usability 8/10

The usability of the app is fairly simple as it automatically locates a compatible printer via Wi-Fi and once connected you are good to go. The app allows remote connectivity to other printers via the internet, through Cloud and you can scan and print documents easily. Thanks to its comprehensive settings, you can check the level of ink remaining, the model number of the printer and more. The settings also include an option where you can purchase ink online and get a hand-on detailed access to the full guide on various printers you have connected to. It also features an NFC function that allows you to touch and print or even scan by simply holding your device over any NFC mark that is present on your machine. This however only works with NFC compatible devices. 

Cross-platform use 9/10

The Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app is free to get and compatible with Android and iOS devices. Including iPad, iPhones, iPods and Android smart phones and tablets, the app requires Android 4.0 and above and iOS 7.0 and above to function.
