The Canon print inkjet/SELPHY application is an interesting and innovative app that helps you wirelessly connect to the 3 types of printing machines to control the process. You can scan, print, and use all of the features of the printing machine by using your smartphone or the tablet. The app also provides information about the printer itself. The app will inform you for example if the ink is on low levels and you need to add it.

The user can also control the setting of the printing machine through the app with just a few taps. While it may seem hard at the beginning, don't worry it is really used to use the application as we demonstrated above. The app offers a variety of options you can take command of and makes it really comfortable for every user.

While the app is without a question a really comfortable and helpful creation, it has some cons that we can point to. The app isn't available in all regions. Also, it only works on 3 main kinds of printers. These three are Pixma, Maxify, and Selphy. Unfortunately, other types of printers aren't supported through the app and users need to make sure they buy any type of these 3 printers shown above to use the Cannon Print Inkjet.

The application is available on both biggest platforms, Play store and App store, and the details on both types of platforms about using are basically the same. There are some minor differences, but overall the app is pretty much the same on both platforms.
