 “After playing with Haptic Touch Bar for a while myself, it seems unimaginable that Apple didn’t implement something like this out of the box. Not only does the app augment the Touch Bar experience, but it makes the Touch Bar feel like an actual extension of your keyboard.”

Anthony Bouchard,


Why do you need it?

If you bought your MacBook Pro in 2016 or later, you’re probably still cursing Apple for replacing the top row of the keyboard (Esc, F1-F12 row) with a ‘touch bar’ that makes it impossible to touch type.

The lack of sound or haptic feedback makes it like typing on a flat table top!

Serious high-end MacBook Pro owners use these silent, unresponsive top row keys frequently - and it’s incredibly annoying to keep looking down to check typing.

The new Haptic Touch Bar app solves that in an instant. 

Utilizing the haptic engine of the Force Touch trackpad, it provides haptic feedback whenever you press a Touch Bar key.

And what’s more - it supports all touch bar modes:

Keyboard keys (Esc, F1 - F12)

Control Strip buttons

Contextual app controls

Touch typing is possible once again on your MacBook Pro and you can be more productive!   


 “Check out the Haptic Touch Bar app to get a little feedback from your fingers.”

Patrick Lucas Austin,
