    Very useful and works very well


    Nothing so far

    The best use of the touch bar! Super useful tool.

  • Pros: 

    Cute, functional, simple



    It's simple and easy to use. Takes up zero presence on "main" desktop and is a true touchbar only app.

Thanks for trying it out everyone! Please get in touch if you have any feedback or suggestions. Did anyone find the easter egg on the landing page yet?

@alexzirbel I found it on accident at first! Love it.

Great stuff, do you plan on adding an actual Timer to this instead of just stop watch?
Alex ZirbelMaker@alexzirbel · Indie developer, previously @Opendoor
@mykro thanks for trying it out! I don't plan to add a timer, because I think existing non-touchbar apps do that quite well and I'm not sure what the touch bar would add. I may eventually add a pomodoro mode, though. And I'm happy to accept pull requests for other features.

@mykro Wow, It will be so cool if you can add a pomodoro to this.
Micheal Allen@mykro · I design and develop things
@alexzirbel Haha you read my mind, this is exactly what I was hoping to use the timer for ;)

@alexzirbel @mykro YES PLEASE! This is quite literally the only reason I have the menu bar showing. This would be a great use of my otherwise useless touch bar.
