    I'm trying to replace the default badge on open apps but I'm finding it difficult to find more than just a few alternative badges. I figured that like every part of iPhone customisation that there would be loads of custom ones but I've literally found only around five. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I've only seen about 2 or 3 myself.

    I made my own (not the arrows one)

    Edit: If you have jailbroken your phone and use Backgrounder, but you do not like the backgrounder badge, maybe you want to use these:

    just replace the file badge.png in the directory

    /private/var/stash/Applications.pwn/Backgrounder.app

    with your choice.

    Name must be changed to "badge.png"

    Thanks.^

    Yeah, I think I'll have to do that. I'm thinking that I'd like to have one similar to the Mac glowing dot below open apps. Does anyone know where that image is stored on a Mac?

    This is the one I use, you can get it here

    Yeah I found that one but it's made for that theme and those smaller icons. It doesn't fit on standard icons as is, but maybe I can shift it a little to make it fit right.

    Oops, I've been using the small icons so long it never even occurred to me that they're not normal sized.

    Nice, thank you.
    I just used that silver badge that you put up.

    Is that purple safari icon from matte nano? If not, can you upload it for me? Thanks :)

    iPhone-power - thanks! The stock badge is so ugly. I like the silver arrows but made it smaller and repositioned it to fit the contour of the icon.

    I'm pretty sure it's from the Matte Nano thread on macthemes. Every so often, someone puts all the icons in the thread into a zip file which can be downloaded. I think all the icons I didn't make for myself came from there.

    I changed mine to the silver badge a while back. Still looking for the perfect one to go with the Illuminé theme. A glowing onw would be perfect.

    How did you shift the icon position? I made it smaller also but now it kind of hangs away from my small Illuminé icons.

    I like this one...

    ...except when developers don't use the standard icon size... then it doesn't look so good. ;)
