App Reviews

  • Many many bugs & glitches.

    By rymacguy
    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 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.
  • To print or not to print, that is the question!

    By jpwinkle
    Two days ago i had to reinstall printer & software with all its updates. I have an MFC9340CW that this app no longer can find & I now have to put the printer in manually. OK, but 2 days ago I had the settings option so could print in duplex, 1 hour ago I had the settings option to print in duplex (this is a duplex printer & all settings in machine & its properties are set to utilize duplex), BUT NOW the settings lost the option for duplex & keeps spitting out single pages. Its bad enough that I cannot find the fix to use my Apple AirPrint which also disappeared 8 or so months ago, now I cannot get your app to function as it had been. This is the 4th Brother printer & I was happy with them. This is the LAST BROTHER PRINTER unless it gets a lot better fast!
  • Saved me!

    By anessavay
    My PC has been broken for months and I was afraid I'd never be able to scan from my home printer again. Until I had the bright idea to look for an app. Even my 3 year old wireless model worked perfectly! I scanned a 19 page document, converted it to a PDF, and emailed it along with saving it to my phone. No more having to scan sensitive personal info at work! I'm so happy. I can't vouch for the power of the app besides simple set up and pushing the "scan" button then following on screen directions, but I'm thrilled with it.
  • So basic, no duplex default, can't duplex Cloudprint

    By Woods4000
    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.
  • Lame. No machine status as features show. Doesn’t offer Print in browsers. Seems backwards.

    By MikeyP1024
    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.
  • Amazing Printer

    By MyCoffeeHouse
    Don’t know what changes brothers made since the other reviews but I had absolutely no problem with his printer app. I installed it, it asked me to select the printer which I did, then gave several option of from where I wanted to print from, so I went to iCloud and selected the document, click print and it printed the document! Oh yes. And I also opened a different document and printed directly from that document to air print and it worked great!
  • Get it Together Brother!!

    By 19382291
    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.
  • Godsend

    By JHhhh1134
    Long story, but my laptop is dead and I urgently needed to print, sign, scan and email a document. I happened to have an old Brother printer with wireless capability. I plugged it in directly to my router, and this app found it immediately and I was quickly able to figure out how to save the document to the cloud and print it through the app, sign it, scan it and email it all through the app. The app completely controls the printer. So cool.
  • Remote Printing from Multiple Devices

    By By TheView
    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.
  • Requesting a few tweaks please!

    By smallville808
    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!!!
