No Apps with badges on Dock?

    I've found several articles & posts all suggesting to not put any apps with badges "like email" (Which I'm assuming are the red markers) on the dock. But, I've been unable to find anything that explains "why/why not"

    The suggestions have typically been in conjunction with installing the 5 icon dock tweak in cydia (which I have).

    I'm assuming BiteSMS & Facebook would fall under the "apps with badges" category. What is the reasoning behind these suggestions? Does it interfere with push, etc?

    Any help is appreciated.

    I used Greenpois0n (RC5 b4) for the vzw iOS 4.2.6 to unlock this piece.

    I hadn't heard this. I have 5 icon dock and also keep my email app and BiteSMS app there and have had no problems with push notifications.

    It may be because if the icons are at 100% size, the badges will overlap with the icon of the app to their right. It's totally an aesthetic thing. You can get springtomize or Shrink to fix the problem too. .
