Clock, right on the Touch Bar

From: Medium

I have been using a MacBook with Touch Bar for last 1.5 years and I have always loved it. I personally feel that touchbar is a cool idea. Apart from the inbuilt features which Apple provides though touchbar, I have always felt that a lot of cool things can be done through it. There are, though, very less number of useful apps for touchbar. So, I thought of giving it a try to build something useful.

For me, it takes a lot of effort to check the time from the menu bar. Also, when you are working in full-screen mode, time is what you are missing the most. The clock on the touchbar feels so perfectly and strategically placed. You do not have to put any effort into checking the time. It’s right there, always in the front.

It was my first experience trying out building a MacBook app. Built it in a night’s time. I could not find any other MacBook around me with touchbar, so could not test it on a different system. However, I tested the auto login, hiding the icon from menubar on a couple of macs, worked perfectly fine.


  • Tap to change the time format.
  • Change colors (Just for fun).
  • Open at login. (change in preference)
