Screencasting your Android

Quick post to share a great utility for anyone like me who would like to show off their Android app on a projector. In my case I’ve been demoing the latest Adobe Reader, LiveCycle client, Acrobat.com, Photoshop Express apps from Adobe as well as some samples created with the upcoming AIR for Android.

Screencasting an Android

The problem is that I used to use a web camera and try and hold the phone in front of it while demonstrating. What I’ve started using now is AndroidScreencast (http://androidscreencast.googlecode.com). It’s a java app that displays whatever is on your Android device onto your PC. The screen refresh rate is not amazing, but it does work on Mac, Windows & Linux!

All the gory details are on the project site, but it works great!
