Evernote markup Touch Bar

Evernote is the latest Mac app to add support for the Touch Bar, and it seems to be taking a pretty simple approach to it.

After a new update, the Touch Bar will display buttons to start a search, begin a new note, and access tags — all things that you may actually want to do with just a tap.

Controls get a bit more complicated in specific instances — the bar turns into a slider when choosing colors, and it pulls out a suite of markup tools for images — but they don’t appear to get into the overly complicated realm that bogs down some apps’ Touch Bar controls.

Evernote specifically says it was trying to make its controls fall somewhere between touchscreen buttons and keyboard shortcuts, so it makes sense to see it land on this kind of basic result.

Major Mac apps have been slowly rolling out support for the Touch Bar over the past few months as the laptops end up in more and more peoples’ hands. The password manager 1Password added support last year, and Microsoft updated Office with support in February. Apple has also been adding Touch Bar support to even more of its own apps, including Logic.
