Rubbish Canon make the most frustrating, complicated and poor quality printers in existence. Their apps are no better. AVOID. In fact, get an HP, or even some crayons and paper - it will serve you better than this headache inducing rubbish.

Well that was a waste of 2 hours Just spent 2 hours trying to figure out how to print using the first Canon app I installed but finally realized its not compatible with Pixma printers. It says to download this app instead for Pixma printers... then I read in the description that it doesn't work with the Pixma MG3200!! Thanks Canon!

Useful, but could be better. Needs to provide print quality options, & ability to choose photo size/layout as well as paper size.
