Way to go guys! I think will be expanding this soon (hope) but I'm sure it'll still be a small list.

Warning!!!! If you have a Mac you can modify a couple of system files on your Mac to share your printer over AirPrint for free! I dont remember the link but I have done it myself and use it! It works great! Google it because it is 100% free no pirating!!!!ModMyi Rocks!

You can get a free tool called AirprintActivater for Mac/PC and it works fine for my non-Airprint printers. Plus one of my printers works with Airprint that I got free with my iMac
Link to the Printer with Airprint supportfree with Mac purchase!!!
Would be cool if I could not install AirprintActivator on all machines. But I can so this is useless.

well it finds my printer fine, but won't print. Occasionally it returns the error saying my printer is offline, but other times it wont say anything and acts like it should be printed. I have tried when printer is asleep awake, and all other ways...cant seem to get it to work...too bad its with a brand new printer too

Steps to Enable AirPrint on Mac, so it can recognize your wireless printer.
Print from iPhone, iPad or iPod you dont need TruPrint so your iPhone can recognize your printer with this method.
Steps to Enable AirPrint on Mac
Make sure you have Mac OS X and iTunes updated to the latest version. Download the AirPrint Activation files given here and copy them into following three specific system locations:
urftopdf to location /usr/libexec/cups/filter/
apple.convs to location /usr/share/cups/mime/
apple.types to location /usr/share/cups/mime/
Now go to System Preferences. You will have to delete your printer and add it again. Now share the printer like you normally do.
That’s it we’re done. Now click Print on any media like webpage, email, attachments etc. on your iPhone and you should be able to see your printer listed.
Its very intuitive and there are no settings or toggle on the iOS end. You just click on Print in any App on the phone and it will show you the available printer options.
Works perfect for me... Try it out, works on any wireless printer shared from your Mac.

Works like a charm - Had to open some TCP/UDP ports on it's IP Address, but she's working perfectly!

NOT Bad, shame I already have n app called Print Central which didn't cost $9.99 but does the same thing.It is Not by our Hands that things Change, BUT rather our Interventions that change ourselves.

Only bummer is it doesn't print in color for me. Everything is black & white with TruPrint. When I use the app Print N Share with the native iOS printing it does print color. Anyone experience this too?

i hardly print to paper these days, just print to a pdf file and save to dropbox is all i need. also, i'm not a fan of intelliborn's pricing, most iOS apps you buy once, run on all your devices, having to re-purchase their apps for every device i own gets too expensive.
allow me to buy once and install on all my apps and i'd be much more likely to purchase. add a print to pdf feature and even more so.

scottjl: You can actually install on up to 5 devices (we've changed that when we started selling via Cydia). It actually in most cases does print to pdf - so thanks for the feedback
sami4021: Nope - no support via airport extreme. No USB-Only printers will work (must be a network printer)
javiert30: Yes - you can print from your iDevice through your mac. But why would you? Print directly from your iDevice to your printer. (Works great especially when you're not at home by your mac).
All: Thanks for the feedback on which printers are working (and the one's that do not . Enjoy!Send iPhone System Log: Via any Intelliborn App -> Click Help / FAQs/ Support -> Scroll to bottom and click on red text at bottom.

I am having problems printing to a Dell V305 wifi printer, my iPad recognises my printer TP_Dell_Dell_V305 and it says printing but nothing happens. I have noticed that when I have my computer on I get another printer option that says Dell 305 but has a pad lock next to it. When I try and choose this it asks for username and password. I am not sure what to put in there or which printer option I should choose. I can print from my laptop to my printer with no problems. Any help would be appreciated.

Was frustrated by TruPrint and annoyed at $9.99 price tag for something that did not work. I looked up how to enable airprint on Windows and it worked, printed in color and for free! Still trying to print on off my photo tray, having a little difficulty with that.
Enable Airprint in Windows and use any printer

@psuskeels thanks for the response! i wasn't aware of the change in policy allowing up to 5 devices.
regarding print-to-PDF, are you saying that truprint can print and save a PDF file to my iOS device that i can save off later to a desktop, or email, or save to a service like dropbox?
