Displaying Android screen on your PC

You wrote a perfect Android application and now you want to present it to someone over Webex, Skype or any other web conference tool (and you don't want to show it on an emulator, but on a real device). The best way would be to cast your device screen on a PC.

There are several tools that allow you to do this, and among few of them that were tested I was most satisfied with Droid@Screen. It gives you the best control options, allows recording, screen capturing etc.

All you need to do is to install USB driver for Android device that you have (download it from manufacturer's web page), connect device to your PC, let Droid@Screen recognize it (Droid@Screen is started by double click on the jar file) and let the games begin!

Also, you need to have Android SDK installed, and ANDROID_HOME environment variable pointing at Android SDK home.

This is where you can find this great tool and any other information that you might need:
