Five years ago, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) introduced the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro, replacing the ubiquitous top row of function keys with a horizontal display panel.Controversy ensued. Add, rearrange, or remove buttons in the Touch Bar. To switch between changing buttons for the current app and the Control Strip, just tap the Touch Bar. (You can’t customize buttons for all apps.) Add buttons: Use the trackpad or mouse to drag a button from the screen to the Touch Bar; buttons in the Touch Bar jiggle slightly.

How do I open the app?
You used to have to right-click the app to open it. But the latest build is notarized by Apple, so it should open normally. If you are still having problems opening version 0.5 or later, this Apple support article might help.
What MacOS version do I need to run this app?
MacOS 10.14 and higher.
I opened the app, but only see a blank window titled “Touchbar Pet”.
Look at your touchbar!
I still don’t see anything on my touchbar.
You may have changed your touchbar settings at some point.
1. Go to your computer’s System Preferences.
2. Click “Keyboard”.
3. Set “Touch Bar shows” to “App Controls”
4. Reopen the Touchbar Pet app.
What are the controls?
– Tap your pet to pet it.
– Tap poop to remove it.
– Tap the egg to hatch it.
– Tap an empty spot on your touchbar to place a food pellet.
– Tap anywhere with two fingers play with a laser pointer.
– Swipe in an empty spot to roll a ball.
Why is my pet losing health?
– Your pet is starving (hunger level is 10).
– Your pet is overfed (you fed them for a while after hunger reached 0).
– Your pet’s environment is too dirty. Tap poop to clean it up.
– Your pet is dying of loneliness. Pet them and play with them more frequently.
This list will be expanded in future versions.
How does my pet regain health?
When I’m sick, I feel better by eating enough food and getting plenty of sleep. Let your pet take naps with hunger less than 4 (but don’t overfeed them), and let them wake up on their own (don’t force them awake).
How do I keep my pet happy?
Make sure they are healthy, well-fed, and pet them often. They like a clean environment, so remove any poop. They get grumpy if they are awakened from naps too often.
This list will be expanded in future versions.
