Pock for Mac0.8.1

14 February 2021

Add dock to the Touch Bar.

What is Pock for Mac

Pock is a simple little Mac app that's designed to make your Touch Bar more useful by adding your dock to your Touch Bar so you can quickly access your apps and even files within folders. The Pock options are customizable, so you can choose what you need most, adding options like a now playing widget for controlling music, a status widget for getting info like WiFi connection of battery level, and more.

Widgets:
Dock widget

Your macOS Dock inside your MacBook's Touch Bar, the core widget. It comes with fully-functional badge support so you will not miss any notification. More features can be configured in widget settings along with other preferences.

Now Playing widget

Media information at a glance with gestures for media controls included.

ESC widget

A handy ESC button is there, just in case, so you don't have to hide Pock to access the system one.

Status widget

Always keep an eye on system information, like what time is it, or maybe WiFi status or Battery status. Configure Status items visibility from settings.

Control Center widget

Change screen brightness or system volume with easy controls. Long press or slide on control center item to invoke sliders.

What's new in Pock

Version 0.8.1:
  • This new version includes a new way to update your preferred widgets directly from the Widgets Manager pane in just one click!
  • Pock's mission is to provide an ecosystem that makes it easy for users and developers to get the most out of their Touch Bars, extending the power of an often underrated tool.
  • Dock Widget Update:
  • To let you enjoy this new capability, I've also released a new version of Dock Widget that brings a new logic for hiding/disabling on-screen Dock.
  • It also fixes a crash that may occur if you interact with the cursor inside directories/app-exposé.
  • This widget update will also gain some performance improvements (Dock Widget should not use more CPU than needed anymore).
  • System Control Strip:
  • I want to say that I got your feedback, and I liked to bring back the option to place the system Control Strip alongside Pock widgets.
  • This means that you can now quickly lower/increase your MacBook's volume/brightness while still enjoying a personalized Touch Bar.
  • Of course, you can always decide to hide the system Control Strip to display widgets in full-width to never miss any desired information.
  • Pock & Big Sur:
  • I'm proud to announce that Pock now has a new icon that perfectly matches the Big Sur style. It's not a significant change, but I think you will find it appealing.
  • The whole Pock brand is getting revamped with some super cool news coming out in the next months.

Somebody can give support how to use step by step. When start on the Touch Bar appear Welcome to pock and add widgets to pock. Customisation without results. When press done nothing happened. All remains the same, welcome and add.... Also in widget manager all empty. No widgets from Dock. Is it normal or something wrong??

I like it, Just one question, maybe for the future? the possible to choose the apps that you can display instead of the whole dock? because i think i dont need the whole dock but it would be nice to get to the most used apps directly

I only downloaded Pock a day ago, so I'm not fully up to speed on its usage, but like TurdFerguson82 said, there's finally a use for the Touch Bar! I tend to hide the Dock, as well as keep it on the side of my monitor rather than at the base of the screen, so now I can access Dock items without having to mouse over to the side region of my screen and click on things; they are right at my fingertips! I'm still getting used to the preferences and configuration settings. Supposedly, there is an ESC key that toggles the Touch Bar display to "normal" or "Pock," but I can't get it to always work. I also haven't yet set up the Control Center widget, and may not, as I'm not sure I'll find it useful. But kudos to Mr. Galdi for creating an inventive app, releasing it free of charge, and I hope to find documentation on the many configuration possibilities in it!
