    How to use Phone Screen Sharing App:

    • From the mobile phone first you have to tap on Phone Screen Sharing icon. Just launch the app and then tap on start button.
    • Turn on usb debugging to provide smooth connectivity. Without that the connection will not work proper. And then configure the connectivity through ap settings. Wifi connectivity is not going to work.
