Seeking your expertise and guidance in projecting the android apps to user thru PC/Projector. I tried with nox and vysor software to project the DHIS2 Apps but it is not displaying/mirroring the exact phone screen in the projector, which left us not able to demo the dhis2 apps. Also found app is not stable and functioning well because it get started crash, program rules are not working, some data fields are not able to enter(skipping). We are using Version:2.29, Build revision:dd8e3fc
You can use teamviewer, but there are other options too - just cannot off hand remember the details.
App not stable: are you referring to the latest release 1.2.1 here? (I am having similar problems with it)

I have used Vysor and TeamViewer. Both worked well. The difference is Vysor needs a USB cable but Teamviewer can work with WiFi.
WRT, issues with Tracker Capture App, the app does not look like tested for all possibilities. We do face lot of such issues but we are just managing.
We are using DHIS2 2.29 and App version is 0.5. (64).
Dear @ MSP,
Thank you for your suggestion, we will try with Teamviewer which we haven’t.

For Android screen mirroring I can highly recommend
scrcpy. Works on Mac/Windows/Linux. Free and light-weight.

# Display Android apps on Ubuntu Linux
When demoing the DHIS 2 Capture Android application (and other Android apps), it is quite useful to be able to display the phone screen on your local machine, so that the screen can be shared on video conference calls or projectors. A great application for displaying and controlling your Android device through USB connection (or over TCP/IP) is the [scrcpy](https://github.com/Genymobile/scrcpy) application from Genymotion. It is cross-platform (GNU/Linux, macOS and Windows) and does not require any root access. For Ubuntu 18.04 and later it is available as a *snap* package. This guide explains how to install scrcpy on Ubuntu from the command line and connect to your Android device.
1. Ensure you have *snapd* installed on your system. If not, install it with:
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install snapd
2. Install scrcpy with this command:
$ sudo snap install scrcpy
Verify the location of the scrcpy installation with this command:

And as FYI,
@jaime.bosque has written a very handy guide to Scrcpy and other Android mirroring options here.
@Vidhi . Just found this message… in case you were not aware since 2.6 this should work under some conditions: Black Screen on Android Device - #10 by asacur but check the doc for the security concerns: Settings configuration - DHIS2 Documentation
