Re: Red star icon on message application

You can use the HomeScreen class to modify your application's icon.  There is no API to provide the red splat, but you could switch to another image that has something similar to the red splat on top of it.

There is no API to trigger the red splat to appear on the Messages application (or any other RIM application).
