    There is a new update for backgrounder.....in the update includes little notification images at the bottom left corner of any icon (app) that is running on your springboard, they look like like spinning wheels.

    So, if these show up on your springboard, now you know what the are without starting a new thread

    Also, the latest update to Backgrounder allows you to disable the notification images.

    How do you disable the notification images? Is there a BossTools plugin? There is no UI for backgrounder, and (of course) the phone app is always running in background, so that little notification image is always there.

    Pardon: BossPrefs

    Not sure what you're thanking me for, but...you're welcome. I disabled the notifications by going into /var/stash/Applications.xxxxx/backgrounder/images/ and changing the name of the icon from [whateveritwas].png to [whateveritwas-disabled].png. A reboot, and problem solved...

    Backgrounder has had a UI for some time now. You can disable the notification symbols in the Global settings (in the latest update).

    That made me lol.

    I like the notifiers on the icons...I just need to mod them to match my theme a little better. They are close, but not quite there.

    I hope backgrounder gets updated for 3.0. Press and Holding the Home button doesn't do anything.

    To force quit an app in 3.0 you have to hold the power button until the power off slider appears THEN hold the home button until the app quits... Kinda lame, but no biggie.
