HomeScreen offers a method to set the application icon.
To notifiy App B you can use a multitude of ways, i would suggest to post a global event.

Doesnt HomeScreen deals with the current running app? eg: if i call HomeScree set the icon wouldnt just set the current app A and NOT B?

For global events how do i pass app B the new bitmap?

Correct, HomeScreen changes only the calling applications icon.

You can send 2 int's and 2 Object's with a global event. Your Bitmap is an Object subclass.
