's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 5/6/18 9:08 PM
I really wanted to like this app because it was easy to set up. But it saves each scanned page as a separate file and I don’t see an option anywhere to combine the pages into one document... if I could fix this problem, it would have 5 stars

The title sums it all up. No need to install this app because the only thing it does is take up memory on my phone. It does nothing else.
Rodger584's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 5/5/18 2:12 AM
I currently have 4 working MFC and support another family member with one, remotely. I have worn out 3 printer over the past 10 years. They have been fairly reliable and relatively easy to use, but are complex and often confusing when trying to use extended capabilities. After using the iPrint/Scanner for over a year, I have been happy with the scanner function put find the printer function to be useless. The scanner will support a limited number of paper sizes and also handles the ADF with the same paper sizes as well as single/double sided paper in the ADF. The print function appears to assume that the print size matches the pager size and places the image where it expects the paper to be located approximately. There are no provisions for setting vertical or horizontal orientation of an image or centering images. The decision to enlarge an image to fit the paper size is controlled by the border option, but does not work correctly. Printing appears to work better by just using the IOS print option in the share function, although it would be nice to have a utility that would control the printing area(s) on the paper and allow images or text to be oriented in the area(s).

I'm furious that my app stopped working abruptly. Whenever I tap on the Brothers app it goes completely blank I have deleted and reinstall thinking this may help but it didn't change anything!!! This was once a great working functioning app but now it's worthless!!!! Very disappointed with Brothers.

Had a HP but cost to much for the ink so I go a new print (this one) Brother and every time it tells me to update and download but when I try to update it tells me that there are no updates or turn off the apple and that can be my iPhone, iPad or Mac Pro so it’s a good printer but when you have to sign into the Wi-Fi every time I need to print it’s get’s old and makes me want to buy a new printer which is sad Please just FIX the updates

gmaxx's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 5/13/18 6:08 PM
The scan feature is annoying as it saves everything as a png file; plus, it adds an additional document to your destination folder that has the text “from brother iPrint&Scan”. It does this for every document scanned. It’s really annoying to have to go and delete all those unwanted files. It easier to use the controls on the machine itself if your scanning and just use iOS to print. I suppose the app maybe handy to look at the status of the printer but I can do that from a web page. To me this app is pointless and provides no value. I deleted the app.

19382291's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 4/30/18 5:58 PM
Brother had a good reputation for excellent printers! However, mind as well throw it down the drain because it’s not keeping up with technological advancements. I have an iPhone X and even before with my iPhone 7 it was buggy and had similar issues. It would only print a couple pages then stop and take forever trying to “data collect” only to end in frustration. Also why in the world would I NEED to make sure all inks are minimally full to use my printer? One time I ran out of color but only needed to print in black and white and it wouldn’t allow it!! It’s costly to buy individual inks when you just need it to operate with out color on most print jobs.

H Graham's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 4/30/18 10:53 PM
For iPad/iPhone users, technically does what it says it’ll do. Through a series of complicated manipulations, you can usually scan and occasionally print (using third-party software). Can’t print from Safari, usually not from Mail and, depending on what it is, not PDFs from various programs. Usually just get frustrated and grab my old laptop to print. Which is the ONLY REASON I still have the laptop!!! Really should get a 21st-century printer, too.
Itskifanatic's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 4/3/18 4:00 AM
Mail includes a pdf attachment with the mail message when printing. My MFC-J5520DW freezes as soon as the pdf page hits it. The Brother print control window stalls with the arrow going around. This app needs updating.

JodyBallard's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 4/2/18 1:09 AM
First alarm was that the app did not automatically find my printer, but immediately found it when I manually installed it with the IP address. I have a fairly new printer, MFC-9930CDW, but only have two functions available in the app: print and scan. According to the feature/model list, many older and newer less expensive models have full features like Machine Status. Overall, I like the printer well enough to not let this app discourage me, but i will never buy another printer that is not iOS AirPrint compatible. Hope Brother improves this app in the meantime.
teamcurtiss's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 4/16/18 4:30 AM
I used to be able to click the share button and select iPrint&Scan to open a print job from anywhere there button was available. It now seems that feature is gone and what is left is a clunky barely usable shell of an app. Please fix this functionality of this app and bring the share button ability back. The app went from useful to useless with the removal of just this one feature.
lachelle1928's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 4/11/18 3:53 AM
Printing from my iPhone it only uses cyan for color so I only get black and white accented by blue. Prints fine from the laptop so I figured it must be from the app. Not many setting to check and change
FaerieFiddler's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 4/10/18 7:52 PM
After downloading this app I was able to print one time. Now I get an error message telling me to check and make sure the printer and iPad are on the same network. Nothing has changed so I don’t know why this isn’t working. Very disappointing.
Hazellorraine's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 3/21/18 6:41 AM
The app will not wake the printer out of deep sleep mode so I have to restart the printer every single time I want to print from my iphone. The printer works fine with my PC, it is only problematic with ipad and iphone. This issue needs to be fixed and the developers must provide a way for the app to bring the printer out of sleep mode or find a way for the connection to automatically connect just like a PC - without having to restart printer each and every time I need to print or scan something. This is completely time-consuming and inefficient and makes the app inconvenient to use. I hope there is a different app that will make my brother printer compatible with iphone otherwise I’m getting a different printer that can work with iOS. Connectivity issues are wayyy too much of a hassle.
flapjackm's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 3/21/18 12:40 AM
It does what it says, but it is very slow with my MFC-L2740DW. Even when printing a simple Word document, it takes about 30 seconds per page. In addition, when printing multiple copies of one document, it seems to send the information as multiple print jobs, taking up much more time than simply sending the job and telling the printer to reprint the document however many times specified.
Jessifru's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 3/17/18 1:48 AM
I can only print intermittently with the app and it sometime takes up to 5 minutes to start printing with long delays between pages. Won’t allow me to print a document containing letter and legal size documents. I’m sending the printer back because this app makes mobile printing useless.
Kbmg28's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 3/11/18 1:37 AM
This worked flawlessly at first; then after a few months it stopped picking up the printer from my mobile. Which defeats the purpose of purchasing a bluetooth/WiFi printer.

Ffplayer99's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 2/19/18 4:25 PM
It takes 5-10 minutes to print 1 page from the iPhone app (that’s if it doesn’t completely timeout). It’s not a WLAN issue as I can print from PCs to this printer in a few seconds. Appears to be a bug in the data transmission from app to printer that’s never been fixed.

Woods4000's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 2/12/18 10:49 PM
I have two Brother printers, the MFC-9970CDW and the HL-L6200DW. I needed this app because the 9970 doesn't have AirPrint and then I like that I can print remotely using Google Cloud Print. However even though you can duplex a print job using Google Drive and you can duplex using the app locally, YOU CANNOT DUPLEX REMOTELY. I'm pretty sure this is a Brother problem and not a Google problem. You also cannot set duplex as the default. It isn't truly terrible, but since you don't need it with the 6200 locally since it has AirPrint and you can't use it remotely because I don't print hundred page document is one sided, it basically represents a total failure on their part to do the simplest upkeep on their app and that earns one star.

joutwate76's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/30/17 5:26 PM
When you attempt to save scanned files to iCloud it saves a text file with the contents ‘from brother iPrint&Scan’. Same happens with other ‘send to’ targets with the exception of saving to your photos. You can obviously work around this by first saving to photos and then moving it from there but it’s just inconvenient. There’s almost no point for using the print capability from the app as it’s better integrated from the os level. The app print option doesn’t support iCloud files from you phone either. It’s like this app is trapped in 2010 when you still needed a Mac to use your iPhone.

xylemphloem's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/29/18 12:51 PM
This works on my iPad but it the only features that we can change are paper size, color, two-sided, and skip blank pages. These are definitely must have features. However, the other basic features it should have are: file type (no PDF!), resolution, jpeg quality, and file naming. When I scan an A4 sheet of paper in color, the file type is PNG and it’s 7MB! I would give this app 5 stars for it’s clear and pleasant user interface, but a negative number for lack of basic scanning features that are common place in 2018. Without these other features, I can’t use this app.

Maybe if I could get the printer out of deep sleep, the iPhone could find it!!! Oh wait, now the printer is out of deep sleep, and the iPhone still can’t find it! Brother is living in the 2000’s still with a Microsoft mentality where you have to manually configure things instead of having them just work.

kuvek's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/16/18 12:50 PM
It is really a helpful app for printing but it lacks some features for advancement. I wanna make a list of suggestions that the developer should do in the next update: 1) More Options for Printing quality (normal, fast normal, good, very good, photos, best) and other options like 2in1, 4in1 ... 2) Colour or Black & white option 3) Page margin and orientation 4) Multiple images in single page like photo grid(the same i.e make duplicate and/or different ones) 5) Scanner interface for selecting quality/pixels 6) Save as options for scanned files 7) Machine Status (ink level, clean, jam...) 8) Direct Print options (not only air printer) in other apps should be added Although it is an awesome app...... After this I surely rate 5***** .

Dude named Ben's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/16/18 12:50 PM
I wanted a no fuss app to send emails or attachments to print from my iPhone and iPad. This app does it. Discovered my printer immediately. Rest of the family use android and they use that version with no issues. Our printer has a fixed IP which may be the reason for this. I have an HL-L2360D and basic printing is fine. Have not bothered with scanning. The phone and many other apps are better featured for photo enhancement. As others have mentioned, it looks like you cannot set duplex or see toner supplies with the app. That would be icing on the cake and likely lift a lot of 2 & 3 star ratings to 4s & 5s.

Still times out 100% of the time (extremely quickly) turning my HL5250DN into a worthless brick. If you haven’t installed either of these two updates, don’t. V5.2.0 finally fixed the instant timeout problem. However, breaking the app for a month and having half a dozen updates that didn’t address the problem that I reported immediately, rendering my printer a useless paperweight for a month, means they deserve my 1 star rating and it can stand.

I agree with other reviews. I am moving to using my ipad away from my laptop more and more often. I would love to be able to scan my documents on my brother printer from the ipad, just as on my laptop. Please add functionality like on my computer: Ability to name files at the scan point, save options or PDF default instead of PNG, and scan options on resolution so I can sort-of control the ultimate file size. If you can do that, this would be a 5-star app. I do appreciate that you added functionality with icloud. Thank you!!!

Hey Brother. You used to basically have Plug and Play. I guess not any more. Can’t you give an update . Most people do not, and probably should not, get into their router’s configuration. I have a wireless Samsung also. Guess what: It’s plug and play. I think this Privacy Separator is probably a big head ache for the users .

Scanning works fine on an iPad. I like that the doc can be edited before exporting BUT, once done, there is no “back” button. Pro-tip: hit the scan button. Also, on other pages where there is a back button in the top left of the screen, hit the < character by a couple of chars to the right, rather than tapping the < character bang on. Finally, when selecting photos it would be good to preview the image BEFORE selecting it, Facebook style, for printing, rather than afterwards.

No matter how many updates, I can now only print on legal size.😡 Today I updated the firmware via my laptop in hopes this would solve the problem but it does not. This app will NOT let me change paper size to letter, it insists that it will only print legal, no matter what the document requires.

We print from two IPhones and two IPads and one desktop often. My wife prints recipes three times a week and I am always printing something. We have a Control Center App that lets us determine if we want the scanned output go to an email, file or image. Having a wireless print function that serves us from any room in our home is convenient. We like the capability of remote printing.
mocarter's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/12/18 12:09 PM
I love my Brother printer and was excited to learn I could print directly from my iPhone but what a disappointment to find that from my phone, it would only print in “best” print mode, even just documents. It uses a tremendous amount of ink. Makes it pretty worthless if it doesn’t keep with the times.

Great printer, my color laser mfc works great but can’t print from iOS iPhone directly (iphone6) via airport but can send print indirectly from pics, camera, even tiny scanner and my Mac book pro directly prints. I collect brothers, their toner lasts a long time and can be reset, off brands available for the $ strapped. And as a hobbyist I love the required repair rare challenge .
joutwate76's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/12/18 12:09 PM
Update: with recent changes to the app you can now save files to iCloud. I’m extremely happy with this update! Old review: When you attempt to save scanned files to iCloud it saves a text file with the contents ‘from brother iPrint&Scan’. Same happens with other ‘send to’ targets with the exception of saving to your photos. You can obviously work around this by first saving to photos and then moving it from there but it’s just inconvenient. There’s almost no point for using the print capability from the app as it’s better integrated from the os level. The app print option doesn’t support iCloud files from you phone either. It’s like this app is trapped in 2010 when you still needed a Mac to use your iPhone.

I have the HL-3180CDW printer/scanner. Printing works fine from the App but scanning does not. Have tried on iPhone 7 and iPad Air 2. I bought this printer due to the ability to scan so this is a big issue. It takes extremely long time and then often get a Data Transfer time-out error. Color Scanning has not worked for me. Color (fast) and Black and White only have worked once or twice. Need to fix this issue ASAP or printer is getting returned.

This app is a life saver in the day to day routine of a homeschooling mom. If I need a quick worksheet printed, I can do it easily from my phone and anywhere in my house. My one big suggestion is to give me a way to print on both sides of a paper from the app. I hate having to go to the computer to do this.

Rodger584's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/12/18 12:09 PM
This utility provides basic print and scan functions. I scan a lot of magazines and documents with 4 different MFC models and most of the time the operation is good. When I do have a problem It is usually a software problem and there is no place to get help. The app support link points to a generic page on their web site. As most of the site is dedicated to marketing with a few device specific support pages. There does not appear to be any support for the mobile apps.
SpaceLordMaster's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/12/18 12:09 PM
I don’t understand why all the negative reviews because I have been using this app in both my iPhone and iPad and I haven’t had any issues. It does exactly what it was designed to do. Those of you having issues, maybe you shouldn’t be jail breaking your phones so that things work like they are meant to work.
Onthefarshore's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/12/18 12:09 PM
I am changing my review to 4 stars again. Thank you so much to the developers for fixing the issues created after the last update. I also appreciate some printing functions updated. It has been working perfectly again. If you could make this app show up and print webpages, photos or emails from the iPhone menu selection, I will change my review to 5 stars.

Can you add support to print photos on 4x6 paper in the manual tray?! Every time I print from the manual tray it forces me to use large paper and if I try printing on a 4x6 it doesn’t work!! Thanks.
Grammy51's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/12/18 12:09 PM
This would be SO convenient if resolution of scans were better. The printer is capable of making high resolution scans (when using with my laptop) but this app can only make low resolution scans. Please improve this feature, and I will love the app!!!!
rymacguy's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 12/10/17 3:00 AM
In the most optimistic, bare bones interpretation- it does what it says it can do. It does it so poorly though that you will probably rarely, if ever, use this app. To scan from this app you literally can only control color or b&w, no resolution, no auto-crop...it can scan directly to a cloud service...if you go and manually save it and using iOS’s file system save options choose your cloud destination there. Also, it creates and saves in your scan destination a text file that says “From Brother iPrint&Scan” for EACH SCAN! Also from the app it just saves everything as .png format and with the name “image.” I’m mentioning all these because scanning from the device direct to cloud lets you pick the resolution (though the files scanned from app appear to be much higher resolution based on file size??) and names them with the time scanned, and gives some other good options. It’s like the people who did this app and the people who did the commands directly on the printer didn’t even talk to each other or attempt in any way to have similar features at both interfaces. Very frustrating.

Kich73's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 11/9/17 1:45 PM
This machine has made the last year of my life so difficult. I always assumed it was me but after happening across the reviews when updating, I feel angry. If I could have back the time and yes even the money, Twice switching internet providers to try to fix an issue that customer support made me feel was on the ISP’s end, well I’d have a couple hundred dollars in my pocket. If I could have back the ink and paper wasted each time I have re-entered my WiFi settings, I would need no paper or ink for the next 6 months easily.

Loyallu's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 11/6/17 5:03 PM
About a year and many tears ago i purchased this printer. I installed the app and controlled it from my phone mainly ! But in the last four months the printer doesn't recognize any commands from the app, or it cant find the printer and i have to manually re enter my wi fi password every single print job which is really time consuming, then it shoots out blank pages until only one sheet of paper is left in the printer that it choses to use to finally start printing on and it completely jams and by the time i un jam it, the machine has once again lost connection with my wifi and i have to manually re enter my password ! And usually by this time i am now late for work AND i don't have the copies i need for work making it necessary for me to stop and pay to print them and now I'm even later for work then ever ! Totally frustrating ! Since I'm missing work hours its taking me longer to save up to buy another expensive printer, definitely NOT a Brother !
Ilikesush's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 11/3/17 1:35 AM
It never has the most updated version of my Google Documents that I want to print, and I don't know what else I can do. It's very difficult having to go to another app to print instead of connecting with the print feature on my device.

I am taking the printer back and uninstalling this app. It won’t work unless you agree to hand over the details of your life to Googul. I am doing my best to stop exchanging my life details for a collection of crappy Googul apps. I am sure Googul has a ton of info about me now, all the more reason not to give them any more. Come on Brother, you charge real money for the printer, do you need crappy Googul code to run it?

With the latest upgrade Nov. 9, 2017 the app doesn’t pull all my iPad pics up for printing. When I click on a pic I can find, it just sits trying to load it. All my settings allow this app to use my pics but they aren’t being pulled over. Very frustrating.
MikeyP1024's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 11/11/17 7:19 PM
Have a Brother network color laser printer. The AppStore features show a Machine Status button. Nothing there in the app... Very awkward to print from a browser. The intuitive way would be to select options in the browser. Then there would be a Brother print button. Not there. Lame...If try to use the iOS Print get no Air printers. So have to copy the URL. Then goto the Brother app click Print then paste URL... May not work since URL doesn’t have session data necessarily if trying to print like a confirmation page in a website that are logged into. So worthless and difficult to use just deleted the app.

Tom McElvy's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 10/31/17 9:34 AM
The Brother app works great fir printing and scanning, but there does not seem to be any ability to send FAXes from iOS devices. Thus is a huge oversight. Many people are trying to make their offices mobile, doing away with desktops. Thus feature is still very relevant despite the proliferation of email. Because if this lack of support, I can only give 2 stars. However, if it is added, I can see it going to 5-stars pretty fast!

Save yourself hours of frustration and buy a Bluetooth printer that actually works. I have to shut down the printer and restart it every time I want to print from my phone, and it only works about 25% of the time after that. I've spent more time trying to connect to this printer than it would take to drive across town to the print shop.

I can’t wait til my printer breaks so I can buy from a company that actually listens to their customers. I’ve asked several times for more paper size options and other options in general only for each new update to limit me even more. I find it super cool that I can’t print a 4x6 photo with my iPhone 7plus, but could with my now deceased iPad. This app needs a major overhaul before I consider getting another brother.

Garrett H.'s Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 1/27/18 5:02 AM
Just picked up my first Brother printer off Amazon after many lackluster years as an HP customer. I’m pleasantly surprised with it so far. The app (which you really only need for advanced stuff like scanning since my model also uses Apple AirPrint, which doesn’t require this app at all) seems easy to use and intuitive. It integrates with the Mail and Outlook apps seamlessly (only complaint is that it’d be nice to send the scanned attachments as one multi-page PDF rather than multiple JPEGs). And it suggested a firmware update immediately upon install, connecting me to the printer’s online setting page without issue. All of this is way more than HP’s app(s) could muster. And I do mean multiple apps - for some reason, one version got so screwed up they took it off the App Store and created an entirely new one (which didn’t even support my printer, hence this new Brother). Definitely happy with my decision to switch so far.

Does not work very well. Printer does not stay connected to the Network. The APP requires you to go thru Google to access application and sites to print content. You should be able to print from the content or site your in. Not sure if going thru the Brother APP is secure.

Ugh. For some reason, this app does not show all of the folders within the Photos app. It only shows certain folders, looks like the ones that are shared perhaps. My “all photos” folder has over 1000 photos, and that folder does not show up. So I can’t use this app to print photos. If that worked, I’d give Brother 5 stars for the app. Like the Google Drive integration. Simple yet verbal interface. Pretty cool that you can upgrade the firmware right from the app.

Consumer4265's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 1/10/19 12:55 PM
For Apple Users: Some of Brother's printers like mine are not Airprint compatible, meaning we're stuck with this work around app. For example, let's say you're browsing the web and want to print a page. Select print from Safari? No. You must Open iprint&scan app, open their web browser, find the page you intend to print, and print. That's three annoying steps too many. This is 2000's technology.
Likelova's Review of Brother IprintscanReviewed on 1/10/19 12:55 PM
When I connected this phone app to the printer, it doesn’t It out properly. Instead of printing out centered, it prints out in a very small font to the far left-hand side. Frustrating and a waste of time. I check the settings on the app, I checked the print preview settings, and I check the settings on the printer and none fix this issue. What’s the point of being able to print something from your cellphone if it doesn’t even print out normally?
