Apple MacBook Pro is in news these days, all thanks to its latest TouchBar feature. People are eager to know how the new feature works and what it is capable of? That’s why we’ve come with this post where we’ll discuss various TouchBar tips and tricks so that you can get more familiar with your new Mac’s TouchBar. Let’s get started:
Best TouchBar tips and tricks
Quickly switch between Apps
There was a time when you used to spend hours looking for apps on the dock. You no longer need to do that, especially after the release of new TouchBar and the apps like TouchSwitcher and Rocket.
TouchSwitcher lets you easily switch between the apps open on your MacBook. On the other hand, Rocket lets you launch other apps from the MacBook Pro’s dock apart from the ones that are already open. Also, since Rocket is a standalone menu-bar app, you can use it anywhere, anytime on your Mac.
Play the evergreen classic game Doom
You heard it right! You can play the Doom on the new Touch Bar. It’s all the courtesy of Facebook iOS engineer Adam Bell who brought the smash-hit classic game on the new platform. Now you can have quality time playing the squished little version of the game on the Touch Bar.
The game will only display the player health, ammo, weapons and other stats on the Touchbar, while the gameplay will appear on the laptop’s main screen. Obviously, it’s not an ideal setup. Still, it works.
Now don’t make faces. Gear up and shoot ‘em all.
Turn your Touch bar into piano
Do you love to play piano? Then why don’t you play it on your Mac’s TouchBar! Not some magic trick or miracle will do it, instead, there’s an app called Touch Bar Piano that transforms Apple Touchbar into a full-fledged piano. Now you can have a little break from regular typing sessions and enjoy some recreation time.
Touch Bar Piano has over 128 different instruments like drums, strings, music boxes or even choir “aahs” that help you unleash the musician inside you and master the incredible art of music.
