    Its probably more of a BossPrefs setting than a fully fledged app, but it would simply be an envelope icon that would appear near the battery icon to show you if you had any new emails without exiting the app your in or unlocking the iPod.

    When you have no new emails:

    OR

    I'm not sure how useful it would be to anyone else but some times it would be nice to know if I had a new email without having to unlock the iPod touch or exit my program to find out..

    If this has already been done then excuse my ignorance and could you point me in the direction of it, but if not is anyone interested in giving it a go?

    Edit: Your right I don't think it's been updated for 3.0 yet, but hopefully it will be or someone else knows of a similar app that is 3.0 ready..

    oh that would be so sweet...
    there are apps that show mail like in the lockscreen but having one in the status bar would just be awesome.

    Damn I'm dumb, it works fine, I expected a full program with settings but that's not what you get.

    It wasn't crashing, it works fine!

    Sorry for being off topic but how did you get the signal bars as your wifi indicator. I looked everywere for something like that and couldnt really find anything so i just use a 3g symbol as mine.

    Their just called Black Wi-Fi Bars you can get them off Cydia, you might need the winterboarder repo though, I can't remember.
