    I haven't seen any apps that would let you do this without root. As for not rooting because you come from iPhone, doesn't make sense... You shouldn't root if you don't know what root is and what it implies, but that applies to anyone coming from any other phone. It's like leaving your front door unlocked... you do it at your own risk, but you save time when coming home and don't get wet trying to get the keys out, but someone MIGHT go in and steal something. Same thing here, your phone's structure files are locked down, but if you root, you're free to write and modify them, potentially leaving your phone useless if you do something wrong.

    Now, if you're not so budget-conscious, you could get a MHL cable (just make sure it's for the S3/S4 as the pinout changed from the S2 to the S3) and mirror your device via HDMI, but you'd also need a PC or monitor with HDMI input.

    As long as you're conscious about what you're installing, rooting shouldn't be a risk at all, but a blessing You can run in windowed mode via HDMI, but you'd need to buy an extra capture card with HDMI input for your PC

    Just research and know what you're about to do. I take it that your previous iPhone was had gone through the jailbreak process as well?

    It can be done wirelessly by installing team viewer to s4, wich lets you access your pc. Also, by installing quick support addon lets you reverse the process and access your s4 from pc.
