Viewing the iPod touch on my laptop

Hi all,

Is there a way to view the screen on my iPod touch (5G, lightning cable) on my laptop and use a mouse/trackpad and keyboard on it? I want to view some things that can only be viewed on the iPod touch, but on a bigger screen (and don't want to buy and iPad just for this one purpose). Any ideas?

Thanks,
-WU

Why not view it on your tv. Does your laptop have hdmi in capability, this is the only way to view it on your laptop.

You aren't going to be able to use a mouse/trackpad to control the iPod Touch without jailbreaking and running a VNC server on it, but you can use Airplay to view it on a mac.
