It’s always been difficult for more than one person to gather ’round a mobile phone, so maybe on this Valentine’s Day it might be time to think about moving what’s on your mobile phone to your tablet for easier sharing with your beloved.  At least that’s what a Harris Interactive study (PDF) released by The Search Agency may suggest.

Yesterday, app developer, Spring Design announced (PDF) ScreenShare Browser Pro, an app that enables Android phones to share their screens with Android tablets, even if the tablet doesn’t have a cellular connection.  The bond of bliss between the two devices is created by  Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.  The phone fetches the Internet content and UI and sweetly delivers it to the tablet making it easier to use your web-based email, browsing and even share viewing web-based photo galleries with your honey on your tablet’s larger screen. Virtual keyboard and functions like pinch and zoom work on the tablet, even though the content is coming via the phone.

At home,  use the Wi-Fi connection between phone and tablet for high bandwidth uses like video, say the people at Spring Design.  So if you’re cooking a romantic Valentine’s dinner together tonight ScreenShare can even split content between phone and tablet, letting one of your view a cooking video on the tablet while your partner reviews the recipe text and video comments on the phone.  But if you’re taking an evening walk in the park where there’s no Wi-Fi, the Bluetooth connection will deliver content to your tablet.

ScreenShare Browser Pro for Phone is available for download at the Google Play store and costs $4.99 with a promo price of $2.99. The required sister app, ScreenShare for Tablet is free.
