Bug Description

For example camera application and application loading screens cannot be distinguished from the application spread background because they are all black. We would like to keep the dark background but change it a bit lighter version so that black apps pop out a bit better from the background.

Desired design:

Change spread background from black to #111111

Maybe a gradient or a smallshadow around apps so that apps that are #111 can be seen as well?
