Canon PRINT is a convenient app, used for printing and scanning documents from any gadget. Basically, it works as a remote control for PIXMA, MAXIFY, and SELPHY devices from anywhere, where is the internet connection.

Interface 4/5

The user interface is not the app’s strongest part. Basically, all you’ll see is the Canon’s standard icons on grey background, which resembles something straight from the 2000s. It’s not bad but would definitely benefit from an update. However, all the buttons provide pretty straightforward information and are easy to navigate through. When there’s no printer or scanner found, tips pop up and inform the user, which is a good thing. All the necessary information, including papers characteristics, levels of magnification, and size of the document, is also provided before hitting the print button.

Features 5/5

Where Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY really shines are its key features. Up to 20 photos, PDF files, or Microsoft Word documents can be edited and printed simultaneously. Scanned documents can also be saved either in JPG or PDF. For the devices without a screen especially helpful will be copy settings, which can be adjusted from the smartphone.

Using this app is now easy to get data about ink levels, model, and where to buy ink. If you don’t know how to change it, there’s the electronic manual to help you out. By setting up Bluetooth you’ll receive all error messages on your phone and may skip the process of entering a personal password.

To ease things even more you can link your app to the Cloud service. This will allow printing documents or photos from the popular social media services as well as different storage sites. It may save you some time that would be required to do it manually.

Usability 4/5

App’s functionality is not complicated as it automatically finds a compatible scanner or printer via Wi-Fi. After that, you can easily start working on your documents. The big plus is also that the app allows to manage all documents and connect to devices remotely through cloud service. Generally speaking, the usability of the app is on a very decent level, but to use it efficiently images should be correctly adjusted. Otherwise, errors will appear.

Compatibility 5/5

The Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app is completely free. It requires Android 4.4 devices and above. For iPhones, iPads and iPods iOS 10.0 or later is needed. Therefore, the app is compatible with the majority of devices, which is a very good indicator.


The Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY is a decent app that is used to scan or print images rapidly from anywhere in the world where is an internet connection available. Great features like cloud services and the possibility to print images directly from social media and storage really add up to its functionality. It’s easier and safer to have all the scanned documents on the phone with the possibility to delete them at any time. Therefore, we may conclude that the app is easy to utilize and all key-features can be easily used on a daily basis.
