How to Connect Samsung Note 2 to a USB printer

This is another issue with Note 2. I wanted to print my doc files directly from my Note 2 but there was simply no way i could with my old HP Officejet 5610.
Either i had to buy a new printer or transfer the doc to my laptop and then print.
Well, after struggling with it, an app called Printshare solved the problem. This is the cheapest and the surest way of connecting your Samsung Note 2 to an old USB printer.
Download the free version first just to check if it is compatible with your printer. The free version of the app lets you print a test page. Try it.
It will work. Buy the paid version.
Much simpler than wasting time on contraptions to try and print from your Samsung Note through a USB Printer.
