Changing Tweetie For Mac IconApril 13th, 2010
Tweetie for Mac is a nicely designed Twitter app for the Mac OS X. Beautifully crafted except for the dock icon. Matthew Rex is kind enough to make available the same icon used in Tweetie 2 for iPhone. Here’s how you can replace the default Tweetie for Mac icon with a new look:
Download the icons from Marcelo’s blog site. Link Here.
The download contains files and folders. Look inside the folder “ICNS” which has two icon files ‘Tweetie (Metal).icns’ and ‘Tweetie (Gloss).icns’. Choose the one you like and rename it “Tweetie.icns”
Quit Tweetie if it is running
Go to you Applications folder and locate the Tweetie app file. Mouse right-click or Ctrl-click to pop up a menu, select the option “Show Package Contents”. The Tweetie app content is displayed in a folder.
Look under the folder Contents>Resources and you should be able to locate the existing icon file “Tweetie.icns”. Replace it with the one you just downloaded and renamed.
Close the Tweetie app content folder.
That’s it. If Tweetie is on the dock, remove it from the dock and put it back again to get the new icon.
