Bug Description

Indicate which application is currently selected with extra illumination of the Launcher icon tile. This is *in addition* to the chevron on the right hand side of the Launcher icon tile.

Description:

The Launcher icon of the currently focused application should be highlighted by a glow. Jason, could you have a play with lighting to achieve this effect.

Jason: I think this is already implemented as specified in this bug. Now this is a note to let you check that there is no discrepancy between implementation and design.

The only difference is that we are using different texture resources. We
will need the one from Design.
