HP Smart - The remote control for your HP printer

Printing and sending documents are still very important things nowadays. However, it is inconvenient to always have to go to a computer that is directly connected to the printer, scanner or fax machine. The manufacturer HP has come up with the HP Smart solution to this problem.

HP Smart is an application that you can install on smartphones, tablets or other PCs. It offers you online access to network-compatible printers, fax machines and scanners from HP. For example, you can open a document on your phone and print it wirelessly from your printer. You don't even have to start your computer. As long as the printer is in standby mode, it can be controlled by HP Smart.

HP Smart also offers a colorful selection of print templates that you can use from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet. For example, if you want to create and print a greeting card, you can find a suitable template and write the corresponding text. You can also insert your own images, edit them and add them to your templates easily.

The application also turns any mobile device with a camera into a small, portable scanner. You can simply take a photo with the camera and send it as a JPEG to your printer or fax machine. If you wish, the program will print your photos or save them directly for you. However, the functions require an HP printer that is also WLAN-enabled and that has a network connection.

An overview of the functions of HP Smart

The main function of HP Smart is called Print Anywhere. As the name suggests, the feature lets you control your WLAN printer on the go and start a print job. As a supplement for fax machines, HP Smart also offers a digital fax function of Print Anywhere. You can easily send a digital file you've opened on a smartphone or tablet to a desired destination address via an HP fax machine on the network. No manual insertion of the document is necessary. You also have the alternative of uploading your documents to cloud storage if you want to use them from other devices.

HP-Smart's scanning feature allows you to turn any picture you take with a mobile device into a scan and save it to your HP devices' storage. You can still edit the photos in the process. For example, you have the option to crop your photos or edit them with certain photos to touch up small imperfections or add new effects. Your scans can then be saved as JPEGs or printed directly.

For kids, HP Smart offers a feature that lets you print out learning sheets, puzzle pages, or other kid-friendly activities, among other things. The so-called play-and-learn function makes use of a large assortment of free content.

For easier handling of the application, you can also use the so-called Smart Tasks. This small menu offers you the possibility to collect important functions clearly arranged on a start page and to combine them with different key combinations. For example, if you want to print scans very often, you can shorten the editing process with a key combination of your choice. The selected photo will then go directly to print, saving you a lot of time.

Is HP Smart a useful application?

In principle, HP Smart offers some useful functions that allow you to start print or fax jobs even if you are not in the immediate vicinity of the printer or fax machine. You can easily start print jobs, scan and edit photos with a mobile device, and the app also offers many templates such as greeting cards or game content for kids. However, the application only works with HP printers. These must be WLAN-enabled. So if you have other printers, this app is not recommended for you.

Tutorial installation / de-installation on iOS

This is how easy it is to install and uninstall / delete iOS apps (applies to iPhone and other iOS devices):

The installation of apps is basically possible on iOS via the App Store. The App Store contains both free and paid apps that can be installed on the iPad, iPod or iPhone. The prerequisite for use is an Apple ID, which can also be created free of charge (this ID is also required for free apps).

1. In the AppStore, the user selects the appropriate app using the search or categories. To the right of the app icon there is a "load" button that is pressed.

2. In the next step, the user must log in with the Apple ID. If the ID has already been used for an app, all you have to do is enter the password - alternatively, Touch ID or Face ID can be used for new devices.

3. After entering the password or after authentication, the app is finally loaded and automatically installed. Entering the password is also necessary for free apps.

4. The app is loaded at the next free space on the home screen and can be opened there - alternatively, the "Load" button becomes the "Open app" button so that the app can be opened directly from the AppStore.

Uninstall apps in iOS

Deleting apps and programs on iOS is very easy and can be done directly from the home screen.
1. In the first step, the user looks for the app that needs to be deleted and presses the app icon with one finger for a long time.

2. The mode opens in which the home screen can be edited. An "X" appears at the top left of every app. Clicking on the "X" opens another dialog that asks you to confirm the deletion.

3. "Delete app" is selected here. Some apps save user data (e.g. scores) - therefore iOS can ask the user for some apps whether the app data should also be removed. If the app is reinstalled in the future, stored information can easily be reused.
