    When I'm listening to music with my iPhone it shows the spinning icon in the menubar. Does anyone know why? I don't think it's supposed to download anything and this might drain my battery quicker.

    This has happened more than once, but I don't remember if I had any other apps open. I don't think that that icon should be visible though if the app using Internet is running on the background.

    I was wondering this myself as it's happened to me a number of times with no other Apps running at all.
