Anyone have problems printing from their iPhone? Whenever I try it says it can't find my printer. I suppose this could be why there are so many printing apps.

I can't get my iPhone 4 to find my printer either. Any suggestions are appreciated, thought I would prefer not to have to download an app.

Is there any way to print from an iPhone onto a non Apple printer,ie, HP.

I use Printer Pro from Readdle. It's not free but the free version can be used to test to see if you can use it for any wifi connected printer not just air print units. YMMV

We have 2 wifi printers from HP but only one of them is labeled Air Print. Said unit (HP 6500A) has never performed consistently even for the MBP co-located with it in the same room. I use the older 8500 in my office. I can easily print to it from my MBP and now with the app I mentioned above. That 6500 often can be seen by my 4S, iPad, and my MBP but always returns an error when I try to use it.
YMMV
