Resolution / Answer

Print Station App for Android Devices

The Print Station app enables you to store label and receipt templates created using the latest ZebraDesigner on a printer, smartphone, or tablet and recall them later for printing. The source code is available in the Multiplatform SDK.  


Printer Setup Utilities (Available for iOS and Android)

Use this app to configure the printer (media, connectivity, programming language, etc...). You can send files to the app using the 'Available Files' option; the files should be in a programming language that the printer can interpret (ZPL, SGD, CPCL) or if PDF Direct is installed and enabled, you can send PDF files as well.
 

NOTE If the file is being sent using Bluetooth, the classic radio is recommended while the BTLE connection will not support this feature.

Refer to the Printer Setup Utilities app for more information.
