RunningIndicator is a brand new jailbreak tweak, developed as part of TweakWeek, which adds a “glow” to the icons of applications which are running in the background.

While multitasking really is great, more than often many of us use our iPhones without knowing the number of apps that are running in the background. If this number gets too high, your handset may become slow and unresponsive.

Fortunately, RunningIndicator provides an easy solution to this problem. Once installed, the icons of applications that are running in the background will glow.

It's easy to see which apps are running in the background

Currently, RunningIndicator is available to download for free from Cydia, providing you’ve added Ryan Petrich’s repository. If you haven’t, it’s “http://rpetri.ch/repo.” And for more information on previous TweakWeek packages, check out our tag archive.
