Wish i could like this app...
There is a lot of nice things for the user experience and aesthetics of this app. Unfortunately using it is still a frustrating experience. It’s hard to tell when the printer is actually on or not (that is also a problem of the actual hardware). Most of the photos print out too washed out or overly splotchy compared to the image on the app.
The most annoying but hopefully easy to fix thing: it’s impossible to choose the crop on the photo—the standard iPhone photo is just a bit too big for the printed paper and there’s no way to adjust in the app what part of the photo gets cut off, so I’ve printed a bunch of photos with someone’s head or face cut off. Even when i crop the photo differently in the iPhone photo editor it still shows up with the wrong proportions on the sprocket app and print. What’s the point of printing the photo when it doesn’t really show what i actually want to be printed....please i hope there will be a feature soon to choose what is in the printed frame of the print—i really want to like the sprocket and this app.

Hi "Sad", sorry to hear about your frustration. We will try to alleviate it. :-) There is an 'Auto Off' setting (and a 'Sleep Timer' setting for HP Sprocket 200) you can modify. In the sprocket app, tap on the menu icon (3 bars in the upper left corner), tap 'sprocket' tap 'Printer Settings' and set the value(s) to what you would like. You can also see the 'Device State' and 'Battery' level in this menu. If your printer is on, you will see a green light and 'Connected' at the top of the screen in the main menu. Additionally, when viewing a photo in the preview screen, you will see a green dot on the printer icon at the bottom of the screen if your printer is on. There are several things you can do to improve the print quality (PQ): 1. Disable Embedded Experiences if you are not using this feature. To do so, go into the sprocket menu, (3 bars in upper left-hand corner of the app), tap on "sprocket", tap on "App Settings" and then tap on the button next to "Embedded Experiences" if it is enabled. 2. Always use the colored Print Quality Card that comes with each paper pack. It will pass through the HP Sprocket Photo Printer automatically before the first print job. It cleans and calibrates the printer for that specific paper pack. Discard the Print Quality Card after you have printed all ten sheets in that pack. Sometimes running the sheet through the printer 3-4 times can help. 3. Please be sure to always use the latest app version and update the printer firmware when available. 4. When you open a photo in the app preview mode, tap on "Edit" and then tap the Wand to apply the Photofix feature. You can view additional PQ tips on this support document: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05660842/. Regarding the wrong proportions, when you open a photo in the preview screen, you can use a single finger to double tap to fit/fill, or you can use two fingers to punch/zoom. We hope this helps - we want you to love your sprocket!
Extremely Happy With The HP Sprocket
I recently just purchased the HP Sprocket and I’m beyond happy! The pictures do print out a little less crisp than I thought but I still love them! I really hope they bring back the Polaroid border !!!!! 🙏🏽🙏🏽 I also wish there were a way to make a collage within the app rather than having to use a different app to do so. The stickers are super cute and I love that you’re able to make your own, best update in my opinion!! I hope they add more stickers and borders or make it to where if you like a border but don’t like the color you’re able to change it or change the thickness of the border and so on. Thank you to the people who developed the app without you this wouldn’t be possible! Enjoy your printing everyone!!! 😁
It isn’t working!
When I first bought it, the pictures were a bit blurry and the color isn’t like the picture on my iPhone. Then I updated the firmware software; but it isn’t working. My phone is updated, my sprocket 2 in 1 is updated. So I don’t understand why it isn’t working find? I connected customers services and they can’t help you. Which made me think “why have customer service if your not going to help the customer out?” I want to return mine but I do LIKE it a lot. I love the small pictures; which is the reason why I got it. I just only wish they can resend the firmware software and make it better? Or at least have the time to help out the customer without “CLOSING The Session/ Chat Room.” I don’t want to return it but might have to if this problem doesn’t get fix.
