Black status icon for Chrometa

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 9 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

My friends at Chrometa are about to release a Mac version of their automatic time tracking app. It’s up for download right now if you want to play with it.

For a description of what Chrometa does, see this time tracking review on Technolawyer.

The app puts an icon on your status bar like the one on the far left, here:

I like to keep the color out of my menu bar, so I created a black and white version.

To use it, download Chrometa-Status-Icon.png and save it somewhere handy. Make a backup copy of your Chrometa application in case you want to go back to the old icon at some point.

Right click the Chrometa application and choose Show Package Contents

Copy Chrometa-Status-Icon.png into the Contents/Resources folder.

Quit Chrometa and relaunch and enjoy your new icon.
