Missing your precious UI sounds in Tweetbot for Mac? Michael is here to save the day.
I’ve figured out a relatively simple way to enable a few of the UI sounds. If you can figure out the others, tell me and I’ll update this post.
What you’ll need:
1. iOS device running Tweetbot for iPhone with filesystem access
2. Tweetbot for Mac
3. Glass of water
Using the file transfer utility of your choosing, (I use iFile to create a connection with my Mac) find Tweetbot on your iOS device.
It’ll be located in /var/mobile/applications/(random characters)/
From there, in the Tweetbot.app folder, you’ll need to bring the following files back to your Mac:
There are many other .caf files, but none of them seem to work for me.
Next, find Tweetbot for Mac. Right-click and select Show Package Contents. Go into /Contents/Resources/, and drop the files. Then restart Tweetbot.
The following sounds should work:
Sending a tweet
Blocking/marking for spam
Replies in Detail view
Unfortunately, the “Swoosh” sound effects when switching panels don’t seem to work. But there. That’s that. Have fun with your sounds.
Don’t want to wait for Twitter to update Twitter for Mac with the new icon? I wouldn’t want to either, it’ll probably be a few months. In the interim, you can download the updated Twitter for Mac icon here, courtesy of my genius Photoshop skills.
To add it to Twitter, simply navigate to the application, right click on it, and select “Show Package Contents.” From there, navigate into the “Contents” folder, and from there the “Resources” folder. Inside, you should find a variety of Twitter for Mac icons. Rename the default icon, which should be called “Icon.icns” to “Iconbackup.icns” for safe keeping. Then you should be able to drop the new icon in. OS X will ask for your password, and you’ll be good to go. In order to see the updated changes, you’ll have to quit Twitter and relaunch it. In some cases, you may also have to remove the app from your dock and re-add it, and in some fringe cases, restart Finder.
