    That feature is part of your DESKTOP-App...

    Doc Manfred, what do you mean by that ? Do you mean it is the launcher app that produces this ?

    If you use for example the novalauncher as launcher then you can have a look at this api to realize badges on your app-icon

    Just a thought, could you create a 1x1 widget that looks like the app icon and have it update on a background process.
    Wouldn't work with 'all apps', but could on a home screen!

    What about changing the icon ? can for example put two icons and select anyone after compilation time?

    You can not change the app-icon at runtime
    Or better said the app-icon can only be set at compiletime
