Rename audio files.

These steps only tested on mp3 files. Simply rename the .mp3 extension to .caf.

As bonus, I have uploaded few Mario Bros tones into my server, feel free to download. I also did a template of the lines that you need to add into the PushSounds.plist.

Template (Remember to change what is necessary)

<dict>
<key>file</key>
<string>Boing.caf</string>
<key>name</key>
<string>Boing</string>
</dict>
