Default [Q] Open apps list in bottom bar/status bar

Hello my fellow tf700 users,

I find it really annoying to have to open the recent apps list to see what i have open. I have gestures set up that allow me to swipe from the bezels to switch bw apps, however, I am curious if anyone knows of a tweak/app that would simply list open apps as icons in the bottom bar to the left of the clock. kind of like the taskbar in windows (never thought id say that), yet I dont want them to be interactive or anything (simply grey icons like the storage/KB dock icons). I find opening the recent apps list to check what is open incedibly redundant as I already have gestures that allow me to quickly swipe to switch apps. This may seem trivial, however, this is my primary device, and workflow is very important to me for school. I am simply trying to limit the number of gestures I have to initiate to get **** done.

Best,

Lucius

Can someone on a desktop flag this thread for crossposting? It's in Q&A as well, and I have replied there already? Mental note: I could get to 2000 posts this way too, and way more easily than just keeping it neat.

EDIT: read the rules, paragraph 2.6 ad 5, I believe.

Going against forum rules -- whichare there for a reason -- is not going to tender you affection or motiviation from other users to actually help you out on questions like this. IF something like this acually existed, don't you think half the Android world would be using this? We can get a moderator to tell you to adhere to forum rules as well if you think I'm playing the "spare-time deputy".
