Alternate icons for macOS

I don't know if I'm missing it, if its not possible on macOS, or if the feature is not implemented on macOS, but is it possible to change the icon for macOS app to match the alternate icons of the iOS version?

I want to use the red icon with white check mark on iOS, but I also kinda need the icons to match on both platforms.

Hi @dev88, thanks for the feedback.

I'll attach icns files below that you can use. To change the icon on Mac,

  1. Open Applications folder
  2. Right click on and choose 'Get Info'
  3. Drag icns file to top left corner where icon is at
  4. Restart the app.

To roll back to default, click icon on top left of 'Get Info' pane and press 'Delete' key.


icon-1: Default on iOS
icon-2: Red with white checkmark
icon-3: Dark red gradient with white checkmark
icon-4: Rainbow background with white checkmark
icon-5: White background with rainbow checkmark
icon-6: White background with dark grey checkmark

This is great, thanks. Is it possible to get the dark blue icon as well?

Excellent, thanks! This worked perfectly!

Would it be possible to get the yellow background with dark-grey checkmark? :wink:

icon-9: Yellow background with dark-grey checkmark

Looks like these icons keep getting overwritten when the software updates. It might be better if these were added to the software so the Mac OS icon selection was persistent. Is this possible?

I’ll keep it on the list to consider. Thanks!

Highly recommend this app for keeping macOS icons the one you prefer. Stays after software updates :slightly_smiling_face:

@GoodTask could you post the .icns for this icon here? :slightly_smiling_face:

I'm tired of checkmark :heavy_check_mark:︎ everywhere
