Tidy little app bridges GCP - Setup is a breeze and using automater makes GCP as simple as routine printing. If you use GCP and MAC, this is a bennificial application to acquire. If your wondering, this app facilitates remote printing via Google Cloud Printing. For a simple example, I have my families residences set up with GCP and am able to print documents to any GCP location just as if we were on a single network. The purpose of this app is to create a sequential printing option that allows the user to bypass having to upload to Google Docs (Google Drive) to achieve the same result.
Silent failure. In the trash it goes. - Installed it. Didn't work. It would be a nice app if it did... GCP seems to be working, just not through this app. It's basically a silent-failure generator: the worst kind of software ('cause you have no idea why it's not working). I'm uninstalling it immediately.

Very easy to manage Print Jobs - We manage ~70 printers in 8 different buildings for a school district. We needed some way to view all print jobs, and delete old jobs en-masse. The Google Cloud Print web interface only lets you delete one job at a time, and considering we had tens of thousands of jobs, this was not feasible. This app lets us select multiple print jobs, and delete them all at once. This is the only app anywhere we could find that lets us do what we wanted. This saved us hours of time! Well worth the $5. My only complaint is that when navigating to a printer, and selecting all of it’s jobs to delete, it only deletes ~200 or so before refreshing, and then you have to repeat the process to delete the remaining jobs. If a printer has ~3,000 old jobs, this means you have to repeat the process 15x or so. It also seems to have a memory leak, as its memory usage will build and build. A quick close and reopen seems to fix it, so not a big deal.
Doesn't seem to work in macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 - Just bought the app and installed the companion "Virtual Printer using a proxy solution" software from the website. Logged into my Google account and now the Google-Cloud-Printer shows up in the print dialog as promised, but it doesn't actually work. Attempting to print results in a message that the printer is not responding. (I'm able to print from the printer just fine if I use the Google Cloud Print website.) I'm surprised that Apple allows software in the App Store that requires software from outside the app store to work. But I guess I'm not surprised that it doesn't work...
