Pock is an app that allows you to display your macOS dock in the touchbar on your Apple laptop.
For myself this is great as I usually hide the dock in order to keep a tidy looking desktop.
Pock offers fully functional badge support so you will never miss any notification.
There is a handy ESC button so you don't have to hide Pock to access the system one.
You can use preferences to set Pock to launch at login. The preferences can be found in the menubar (at the top)
⌥+⌘+P: Will set Pock as the first item in your Control Strip (if any other apps, like iTunes or Spotify replace it). This is Global.
