This is so cool!! I love my HP Sprocket Photo Printer!!!
Straight out of the box, I was a little confused on how to proceed. It would have been nice if this came with 'some' instructions beyond a card that demonstrated how to plug it in for charging (of all things to give directions on...). Maybe I was missing something in my package but mine did not come with information on how to sync it to your device, how to print photos, how to load the photo paper, etc... I've included some basic instructions for anyone who would like them down below.
As for the product itself, I'm really impressed at the image quality for such a small, portable printer. The editing features, including the option to add text, stickers, and frames is a really nice touch, but I wish there was an option to change sticker colors so that they would work on different types of backgrounds (white is your only option). A little frustrated that I can't find replacement paper for this on Amazon but they can be ordered directly through HP in packs of 20 at about .50 cents a sheet (CORRECTION: Amazon does carry the replacement paper - see link in comments section). This would be a great gift for anyone who loves to journal, scrapbook or to have 'just for fun'.
Directions: 1. Charge the sprocket (light turns from orange/red to green when fully charged - it can be used while charging). 2. Insert photo paper with the blue card included, into the sproket (top of device slides and pops off) 3. Download the sprocket app onto your device (in my case, an iphone) 4. Press the button on the side of the sprocket to power it on - a white light will show. 5. From your device - search for HP Sprocket from your Bluetooth menu and connect. 6. Open the sprocket app from your device - from here, you'll be able to access your photos, editing tools and initiate a print job.
