Remote Android screen monitoring and viewing

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/11/25

Another one in the “WordPress Missed schedule” series.

Below are the Android remote screen monitoring/viewer/mirror tools I know about:

  • For a long time, I have used Droid@Screen: an Open Source,  Java based mature cross platform tool that uses ADB (it can even restart it for you in case it hangs) with lots of features (zooming, no temporary files, device recognition, disabling emulator devices, etc). There are some Screen Shots | Droid@Screen.
  • A while ago, I saw android-screen-monitor – Android Screen Monitor – Google Project Hosting. It is a mixed Java/C++ solution that only works on Windows.
  • Recently, Jim McKeeth open sources his Android Screen View: Android Screen View | The Podcast at It is written as a quick hack in Delphi XE5, so right now it has less features and works in a more crude way than the two Java based tools, but it shows the potential of doing similar things with Delphi.

I primarily use Droid@Screen as so far it works best for me.

But I keep a close eye on the other two just to make sure I don’t miss improvements.
