Using HP Smart on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install HP Smart on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.

App Reviews

  • Update - Will not work right with IOS

    By BlueSkyDriver
    For some unknown reason, this app will only print duplicates with ipad and iphone. I’ve uninstalled and re-installed, and I can manipulate image - crop, resize, etc - but it still prints two of the image. Expensive waste of ink, so I had no choice but to uninstall app and use only the built-in printer app on both devices. What a shame! The previous problem was corrected when I realized that every time IOS had an update, the app required all permissions to be granted again. Would have helped if they told us that when printing stopped. I’ve used HP printers for years, and I don’t know if it’s the new HP Smart app, (successor to the ePrint app that worked great) or if it’s the new 8700 series printer (replaced my great 8600 series printer), but the HP Smart app will not print from my iPad. It used to print sometimes, but probably an update has caused the change, and I can’t pinpoint it. I’ve uninstalled and re-installed both the actual printer software as well as the HP Smart app, and I won’t print. I have to use the built-in iPad print function, which is okay, but I cannot manipulate the document like I can with the HP Smart app. Has anyone found a solution to this???
  • I am back HP!

    By MattyEMT
    I thought HP had abandoned its LOYAL customers when it discontinued the HPeprint application. While shopping today, I met an HP Rep who explained that I could continue to remote print using this new App! I can't tell you how relieved I was to learn how easy it was to setup remote printing again. I had set up a printer at grandma's house. She does not have a local computer to serve as a print server. I thought I had lost the ability to send her photos of her grandchild. This is a really big deal for so many HP customers. While the functionality is not identical, people who place printers on remote networks can with little effort continue to remotely print HURRAY!! For customers who swore to never purchase another HP product, you like I can feel better about HP. As for HP, always do your best to continue to support legacy products you have sold to your loyal customers. We buy printers for many decades. Thank you from the bottom (ventricles) of my heart.

  • If it is business critical, get an Epsom.

    By RedRoseAlways
    If you need a reliable printer that is business critical, return the hp while you can. Cute for home or casual college use but if you need it to be reliable for critical tasks, do not risk this product line. The app should clearly be called hpStupid, not hpSmart. I laugh at that welcome screen. I had just enough time to scan one very important, business critical document before work that was 15 pages long. Not too complicated of a task. So I scanned it with just seconds to spare before my ride to work. I first tapped share and save 15 images to phone so they would be safe. POOF. ALL GONE. The app went back to the main menu and my document was GONE. Well, at least it saved pictures of my .pdf to my photos so it's SOMEWHERE, that's why I clicked that option first below saving it to a.pdf. NOPE! It randomly threw the first three introductory pages in there that I DIDN'T need as much, but the important stuff: DEFINITELY NOT THERE. GONE. No time to rescan it all now, I'm at work without it using their epsom printer to get the job done right and on my lunch break I'll be shopping for a new epsom printer and tonight I'll be returning that crappy hp system.
  • PERFECT!!!

    By fb: Kord Inkmasta Berry
    Hi, I am a self-employed Tattoo Artist. I have tried several brands of printers along with the apps that come with them. I have an iphone 6s plus. I just recently purchased the HP Envy 4512 for quick use while out of town. This is my first hp printer in about 10 years. Epson printer app works great for my use, well at least i have gotten use to its minimal customization. I was blown away when i tested the direct mobile-to-printer capability because i wanted to print something really small to not waste ink. I could literally manually rotate and resize the image to my specification. I am absolutely so satisfied. Wow. I always wondered why these companies make an app for the products and you cant hardly do nothing on it. Technology is how we live now days and I'm so excited about this app. This is my first time doing a real review but i had to take the time out of day to let others know. Super excited!!!!!
  • Very Useful App

    By Zach the Apple User
    I find this app to be quite useful as it gives me a variety of options of printing from my phone. One feature I just took advantage of was the ability to link to Google Drive. This is useful to me because my school uses Google drive heavily, and my school laptop only prints on school network printers. This app allows me to access my drive and print at home through my phone. My only complaint with the app is that when I am on the preview to print a document, it takes awhile for it to be ready to print as if it’s not connected. In a minute or two it will give me the option to print as its ready. This could be reasons other than the app though, as I have an older HP printer, and my home network can also factor in. If you have an HP printer, I definitely recommend trying this app. I don’t regret it.
  • APP to the Rescue!

    By Yikes Tykes
    I have a 2year old $400 HP Color Laserjet Pro MFP M277dw that suffered a hardware failure (nothing that I did) and now the display screen is blank. I spoke with HP customer service who diagnosed this problem and said that there was nothing they could do and I’d have to buy a new machine. WHAT?! They only warranty their products for 1 year and the extra coverage that I had purchased through Staples expired just days before this happened. NOT HAPPY... I had a $400 machine that was essentially a paper weight. With this APP, I have regained some control of my machine since I can no longer use the touchscreen on the actual printer. (Btw, HP did not suggest the APP as an alternative control, I found the APP by talking to a friend.) I have given only 4stars, because although the APP works great, I’m disappointed in HP and their product and the APP does not control ALL of the functions of my All-in-one.
  • 3 for setup 5 for function

    By Heidide
    The setup was a bit of a pain and at times confusing in regards to the wifi requirements. I realize that it could’ve been entirely due to me, but keeping that in mind I do think the app’s user interface should be considered despite experience level. I am no expert, but also not a novice. That’s my very minor complaint and it doesn’t affect its rating so far. It’s been great for remotely scanning documents from the printer to my phone, printing, and even allows for some readjustment for size. That’s been a great feature when I’ve used it for art projects. I would love to see more customization for sizing, positioning, and preview, but I haven’t fully toyed with the app yet and it may be there. If not, that would be a request and still doesn’t take away from the 5 stars.
  • Simple and Easy To Use But...

    By skillymcmyles
    I needed to scan and email some documents and the app was nearly perfect in helping me succeed however I made the error of adding too many documents to one pdf. You would think a simple fix would be found within the app, however, once you scan a document and save a file as a pdf you can not separate the images. They are saved as one slide show and you would have to go back and rescan each item and save each item as a downsized image that way. If one could simply edit the saved pdf after within the app after a save, I would rate this 5 stars but it inconvenienced me snd caused me to have to use an external source to achieve my goal. Emailers be mindful and check your Pdf sizes before considering yourself safe to save all those scanned documents and go about your business with this easy to use and confuse app.
  • Accidentally found this app

    By cantwait2retire
    I have been looking for an app that scans and emails, straightens out scans, etc. After reading reviews, downloading a few and trying them, and so on, which by the way, was disappointing because most of them have subscriptions. I will not pay for any subscriptions for a scanning app. If I found one that was good enough I wouldn’t have minded paying for the app but not a subscription. However, Apple does not allow you try apps like I was able to with a past phone I owned. I have an HP printer and when this one popped up while I was doing another search I was pleasantly surprised after downloading it and giving it a try. If you have an HP printer give this a shot. I don’t believe you will be disappointed.
  • Well done, HP Devs!

    By GreatBritain87
    I wanted to print something but did not have my laptop handy. On a whim, I searched for an app that would allow me to print directly from my phone to my HP D110 series printer. This app was incredibly easy to set up. A couple of clicks, and it had automatically detected my printer. I love that it displays estimated ink levels. Honestly, the longest part of the process was finding the document I wanted to print from my gmail inbox, and that is just down to my own search speed. I've only used the app to do one thing, but it did that one thing quickly and with absolutely no fuss. If my other experiences using the app are like this one, a five star rating will be well deserved. Well done, HP devs!
