Thread: How to get icon.png from an app store app?

  1. #1
    Default How to get icon.png from an app store app?
    I am just having trouble getting the icons from the apps that are downloaded from the appstore, like Tweetie 2 or At Bat even ebay, so I can change the for my theme. I want the original icon for the theme. Anyone know if it is possible to get the orignal icon from the app itself? I ssh'd into the app but when I copy the icon.png to my computer it is just a black box.

    The best solution I can offer is going into iTunes>Programs, clicking on the app and clicking on the icon in the bottom-left corner, then screencapping it.

    They are located at User/Applications folder

    Ok, so I back up all the way to the root and go to User/Applications?

    THanks a lot! Ill try when I get home.

    Yes, iTunesArtwork is the icon, just rename it to *whatever*.png

    I don't know what folder Tweetie 2 uses, though

    I'll give an example of the location from one of my apps.

    User/Applications/25EBE7CB-C0A9-482E-A770-D50973952D5E/RealRacing.app/icon.png

    To figure the name you can hold the icon like if you wanted to delete it and see the message that comes up "Delete Real Racing?" and click cancel. That will be the correct name.

    Ok cool, so my theme I can add teh icons for each one in the icons folder right? Like Tweetie.png, iWatchr.png?

    Excuse me? I don't get it. We're SSHing, aren't we? In each app's folder there are only 2 files - iTunesArtwork and iTUnesMetadata.plist

    OK, so I have the Tweetie 2 icon now in case OP is struggling.

    So is everything OK, OP?

    Everything in the same post because this forum's policies are retarded.
