Hi, fellow hunters! This little thingy adds app switching as a new system-wide button to the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. I know, I know – there’s Command+Tab and Dock and Spotlight and Mission Control and good old pixel hunting.

What’s different about this app is that for the first time on Mac it lets you pick an app by tapping it directly. Tap - show the app list, tap - pick the app. The most recent apps are right next to the button. Switching to a particular app with Command-Tab would require additional presses or moving a hand to the trackpad. Don’t forget – Touch Bar is basically a part of the keyboard and it’s right below the screen. It would not hurt to glance an inch below the Dock, I promise.

I don’t mean to convert hardcore keyboard gurus, but still give it a try. At the very least it’s a fun novelty.

I've had this installed for approx 45 mins and its already leveled up my touchbar. (I'm actually using it for something other than volume)

This is the first moment I wanted the touchbar. Nice!
