The need for printing documents is important in a professional working environment. However, a slow process can be a long-term problem within your company or even stressful in everyday work. That’s when PrintHand Mobile Print Premium comes in handy! This app is available for purchase on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store for just $2.99. The publisher also released a different version of the application, allowing download and use for free. However, there are some advanced features that will be limited. We provide you with the latest version of PrintHand Mobile Print Premium, so you can use the Premium features for free. First of all, let’s take a look at this interesting office application.
What does it do?
PrintHand Mobile Print Premium allows users to print files directly through remote printers or upload to cloud storage services, such as Google Drive, Dropbox or Microsoft OneDrive. The app supports photos, Microsoft Office files (Docx, xlsx, pptx), PDF files and even your mobile contacts. Documents can also be sent via emails. Basically, PrintHand cuts the need for an additional computer, therefore saves your time and effort.
The free version of the app lets you print a demo page of your documents. You’ll need to go premium for actual printing, but that’s worth the pay. If your printer is nowhere near you, you can print as long as your printer is connected to wifi.
Visual design and hardware performance
With an app that can perform so many tasks, it’s understandable for the developers not to pay so much attention to its user interface. While main functions are shown clearly upon opening, the design of buttons and the arrangement of icons make them look like they haven’t been updated for a long time. Casual users may find it boring if they use PrintHand for longer than a few minutes. With that being said, PrintHand is more suitable for office use.
However, the app runs effortlessly on my mobile phone and doesn’t perform as slow as it looks. This is a huge bonus for apps like this as users can make use of their time more efficiently.
The app actively searches for available printers and will suggest users connect to one. It establishes connections pretty well, and consistency is a big difference compared to other apps with similar functionality. The link between your phone and the printer is maintained thoroughly and won’t be broken easily. Therefore, when you need to print a large-sized file, you won’t have to worry about unexpected connection loss. Before printing, users can change settings like paper size, margin, number of copies, landscape or horizontal printing and whether they like to print a page individually – just like what they would do on a computer.
Sharing files via emails is fast. From within the app, users can write headlines and messages for their mails before attaching files from their phone. This is a great thing to have because you can send anything instantly without any difficulties.
PrintHand Mobile Print Premium works smoothly with Microsoft Office files but may struggle upon handling other types of file. Users’ reviews on multiple sites suggest that it has some problems regarding printing PDFs such as words overlapping each other or spaces between letters are removed. Nevertheless, the majority of users claim that they’ve been using the app for years and will use it for years to come.

What makes this app special?
Using a computer to print documents can be frustrating at some times, especially when you don’t have the driver needed to be compatible with the printer and have to search manually for one online. That’s not the case for PrintHand Mobile Print Premium though. When a driver is missing, the app automatically searches for drivers and installs them right away. With not so many apps that can perform identically, this app stands out as one of the most useful apps you should have ready on your phone. Convenience is key, and the app proves that it’s worth the premium upgrade. It also doesn’t have any issues with compatibility.
Personally, I’d give this a 6.5/10. The app really fulfills the need for document printing. However, in order to get more users, the developers should really work on improving its user interface – they won’t feel very inspired using a dull white background and stock photo icons. Some performance issues still persist, too. Sometimes you’ll have to select drivers by hand, and words can be messed up with different orders they are supposed to be. You can’t have a paper size smaller than A4, and custom page size is still not a thing with the latest update.
On the other hand, the driver library is continuously renewed. You’ll not have any problems with your new printer as the devs work really hard on this. Furthermore, any user on Google Play Store or Apple App Store who gives this app a high rating is keen on how convenient the app is for them to use.
All in all, PrintHand Mobile Print Premium is the right choice for printing anytime, anywhere with the help of wi-fi connectivity. I’d recommend anyone who needs extra convenience or is rather busy with work to purchase and take a look at this app.
