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.

What phone? And OS version?

You can try this app

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
