NOTE: If in doubt, email me to ask if your printer is compatible. I will answer yes if your printer has been tested. Otherwise, I might give you a promo code to test it for free.

Ratings and Reviews
No way to customize envelope size (doesn't even tell you what size the provided envelope is)
There is no way to set what size of envelope you are printing on — you get only the default size, and the app doesn’t even tell you what size that is.
From reading other reviews, it seems to me that other people are repositioning the addresses, then doing a test print, then painstakingly repeating all that until they get the addresses positioned adequately for their needs. There is no reasonable way to tell where your addresses will be until you do a test print. You have to eyeball it, which would be annoyingly inexact even if the preview were accurate for your envelope size, but since it isn’t, the preview is almost useless.
If this app simply let you set the envelope size, it would be great for occasional use, assuming the rest of it works as advertised; I don’t know if it does. (Someone who used it more frequently and needed to switch between envelope sizes would be frustrated at the inability to switch between saved layouts.)
Lacks some basic features
The app lacks some basic features for printing envelopes for the price. Lacks multiple envelope sizes, iT assumes only one size . There is no post-net barcode below the addressee. Menu icons are not intuitive, and are crammed into the main screen. A swipe menu with actual textual selections and applications configuration adjustments would be helpful. There is only one printer feed orientation. The app assumes right of tray feeding vs center feed if doing a one-print from a rear feeder, that may have a centering guide only. The app does work, it's just lacking many basic features for envelope printing. The price is really too high for what it offers. 99-cents or free perhaps, but not $1.99.
I've used this app with some frustration through the past few years, but usually if patient enough, I could get my envelope to print correctly. I haven't used the app in many months, tried it this morning and it won't let me print. Pressed the print button 30 times...nothing happens. This was never a problem before this. I still have the same printer, iPad, everything. Thanks for the worthless backwards update and I hope you thoroughly enjoyed my money I paid you for this soon deleted app...JACKASS!
