    That is the app running notification. Any app that stays awake for too long, will popup in the notification bar.

    If the app is ok to stay on (most apps should go to sleep), go into settings --> General (or other, the last tab on the right) --> applications manager. Find the app and under "Force Close" you will see a "Show Notifications" box, uncheck it.

    The popup should stop for that specific app

    Unticking the 'show notifications' box doesn't seem to work for any app on the Note 3. Only bug I've had.

    I had a launch model and never updated btw.

    OK I contacted Handcent about this and they've just sent me a beta version to test which has fixed this problem. Hopefully they will be issuing an update soon.
