Free Android label printing app
DYMO Connect is a free productivity tool that lets you design, store, and print labels on your Android smartphone or tablet. Developed by the well-known label printer manufacturer DYMO, this companion app facilitates label production on the go with its rich editing features.
You can take advantage of premade label samples and templates or create your own from scratch by importing images. Personalization is endless with the varied border, style, and font library in the to-the-point editor section. HP has a similar Android app for its devices called HP Smart.
Handy mobile companion
This app works in tandem with DYMO LabelWriter printers, letting you produce labels on a portable device. The latest update includes Address, Barcode, and QR Code objects, expanding the scope of available mobile functionalities.
You have two options with this program. If you’re in a rush, use the pre-formatted templates and quickly build a slick little tag. Those feeling a bit more creative can put their skills to the test and edit away.
All you need to do is launch the program on your phone and connect it to a nearby wireless printer. The white and blue interface displays label templates for various purposes, from storage to barcodes. Tap one and it will take you to the editor.
The options here are laid out across a straightforward user interface, making it easy to modify your new tag as needed. Import images from the gallery and add text in one of the many fonts, including the original Google case. The spellchecking and voice-to-text tools speed the process up and prevent errors.
Bugs and issues
The recent update deemed this companion tool close to useless for most DYMO customers. People report seeing nothing but a blank screen upon launch. They also report not being able to solve the issue through troubleshooting.
While this app comes with a massive potential to become an indispensable tool for companies, it fails to provide the services it promises.
Should you download it?
No, or at least, not until the developers fix the system bugs. For now, you’re much better off controlling your DYMO printer via PC.
