iChat app status

Based on iTunesStatus I wrote a small Applescript app today, that changes the iChat image to the icon of your active application. Since it doesn’t seem to be a standard for how applications’ icns-files are named (name.icns, theApp.icns, app.icns etc), there was no way to pick up the active icon from each app automatically, so instead I have included the icons of all the apps I have. If you want to add your own, look further down the page. If you are running an app that isn’t included with this version, a generic icon will be shown.

INSTALLATION
Just start the app and let your friends know what you’re doing!

ADDING YOUR OWN ICONS
Convert the icns file of your favourite app (Right-click on app. Show package contents. Go to Contents/Resources and find your icon.) to PNG. Then open iChatAppStatus.app by using the same method and put the png file in Contents/Resources/Icons. Remember to rename the icon file the the same as the app’s name.

DOWNLOAD
iChatAppStatus.0.2.zip (updated dec 13)
iChatAppStatusText.zip – instead of changing the image, this one changes the status text instead.

KNOWN BUGS
After a while it stops working. Why, I don’t know yet.

FUTURE
I was thinking of joining the two apps into one.

THANKS
…to Peter Ström for helping me come up with this idea.
…to Martin Ström for additional icons (v 0.2).

Ok, next project: Display a screenshot, updated every 10 sec or so, as your Ichat icon. Oskarlin, I know you can do it!
