    I know that's vague, but they show up in safari when you tap one of the buttons at the bottom. The stock one is just a white radial gradient behind the tap.

    It's different for each app. Just look in the images for Safari.app and find the name of whatever button (probably back.png, forward.png, etc.) and then find an image with the same name only with highlighted, down, on, something like that after the first part.

    They don't just show up in safari, they show up when you hit the close button in SBSettings and various other places.

    Yeah I know. It's different for each app, I'm pretty sure. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't think it's different for each app. I'm not saying you're wrong, but every complete theme I download, it has one of these set.

    I know what you are talking about, its like a cloudy spot of color everytime something is clicked. I don't know where it is though.

    i'd call it a "tap-marker"
    is it like a lil small flash/star of light where you touched the screen/button?

    Yes it is. with the current theme I have now, it has been changed to a white circle about 5mm in diameter, but with previous themes (GT) it was a fire ball. The best example of this is the buttons in safari at the bottom.

    Look in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app and it should be in there. Or you can just look in the the theme file to see what it is named.
