How To Display Phone Screen on Laptop

Is there any app or program that will let me connect my Android smartphone to my Windows laptop, so that I can see my Android web browsing on my laptop?

I'm asking this because I currently can only afford internet access on my phone, but hate staring at a small screen all day long and my contract does not permit tethering. Obviously if what I want to do is possible I would still have to look at the phone in order to browse and navigate web pages, but once I'm on a page I could read it on my laptop's bigger screen.

You can try this app
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mymobiler.android

Not used it myself, feature is already built in to LG G2 but rarely used it. Last time I really used something similar was on the P800 but I had a desk job back then.

Just repeating the big apology for the big delay in responding that I already made on this thread: http://www.mobot.net/battery-solve-battery-problems

As stated I have been struggling to meet even basic commitments after a number of things went very South over the last month, so sorry that I am only now thanking you both, Jan & Sprucey, for your responses and help.


@SpruceyB - I spent quite a bit of time trying to get the app you suggested working on my phone as with everything that has gone wrong recently, there was a lot of research I needed to do on the internet and my eyes were getting more sore than normal doing it all on my phone. Sadly I couldn't get it working, however as I mentioned in the other thread, I will soon take delivery of a shiny new OPO so hopefully this app will work with that.

@ Jan - well it was a SGS2 and Windows 8, but it will now be a OPO and probably some version of Windows 8 once I have purchased a replacement laptop. Unless OPO & CM come with an option to do this anyway, I'll try the app that Sprucey suggested and take it from there.


Thanks again Guys!


Best Wishes
