Top MacBook Pro TouchBar Hacks

Rocket

This is one of the best apps for the Touch Bar out there even though this is still in beta. You can literally put your dock inside your touchbar and hide the dock from the screen and save some real estate on the home screen.

This app stays in the top menu and you can access the menu by pressing  ‘ cmd + ` ‘ key on your keyboard.

It will show the currently open apps and if you press the dock button it will open the apps you have in your dock.

A similar app is the Touch Switcher but after using it for 2 days I started having some issues and my Touch Bar would start freezing up. I have had no issues with Rocket so far.

– No need to lift your finger

A few days ago I realized that I had been using the touch bar all wrong.

In order to change the volume or the brightness you don’t need to lift your finger up. Just slide on the icon and that’s it.

– Great Add On for Apple Apps

Apple has greatly incorporated Touch Bar into its stock apps. Some of my favorite TouchBar supported apps are

  • Final Cut Pro
  • Safari
  • QuickTime Screen Recording
  • Adobe Photoshop

Some of the other apps that are just for fun

TouchBar Piano

This is a fun one. Imagine if you could have a piano in your TouchBar.

TouchBar Space Fight
