    they are icons indicating that backgrounder is in effect on those apps, telling you they are running in the background. you can turn the icons off using backgrounder settings

    I wonder why, in the last few days, quite a few of those threads poped up. maybe someone should make a sticky

    the strange thing is that the update that brings those dots has been out long ago ... at least on 2.0. maybe it just came out on 3.0 (don't use backgrounder)

    its brand new to 3.0 it happens right after an update. i agree with the earlier comment stating its pretty obvious to know what couses an issue when you update and there is an immediate change. but some people arent as educated as others and we cant be TOO judgemental

    It was out a while ago, then alot of people complained and they removed it

    Now its back, and people are complaining again lol.

    Hopefully the next update, you can control which apps have a badge. Honestly if i could just turn it off on the apps that run natively in the background (phone, ipod, mail), i'd be happy.

    EDIT: ignore this last statement, i didn't read the changelog. I'll leave it up though because as a human, i learn from my mistakes.

    If you make this a sticky, you should make all the others too..

    Only 1 of my speakers is working
    I can't get my keyboard skin to work
    What's the difference between 3.0 and 3.01
    .....etc.....

    babyble_pimp...WRONG. once 3.0 came out the badges did not work. a recent update has brought this back. if you read the documentation inside backgrounder and teh changelog you would know this.....so..

    a)Whos that dumb, checks their cydia, "o a backgrounder update, cool", restarts phone
    b) who comments on a change in an application without reading a changelog or description about an app

    aha rofl I like the speaker-thing
    wasn't there an option to disable the badges back on 2.0?

    whatever ... I think it's a wrong decision to put something like that on the homescreen without giving the option to disable it

    gotcha

    Hilarious, but you going out of your way to specifically point me wrong, is kind of ignorant. We're all here to learn... I just learned something...

    your a smart dude buddy, real clever. Why not learn to be a helpful part of a community, than just trying to put other people SPECIFICALLY down. I don't know what it is about some of you cyber bullies, but a real man would never mention another mans name, without that man present.

    You can disable it by opening the app, go to global.

    oh, alright then. like I said, I don't use background (no need to since push was introduced). Someone else said it can't be disabled, that's why I posted that ...
