Are you looking for the process list? That is available through the
/proc interface. Some source code to read & parse this is libproc -
there's an example use here: http://matburt.net/?p=8 and a stackoverflow
question about it here:

If what you want is the list of running graphical applications, then you
could do worse than looking at the source code of the task manager in
hildon-desktop (which I can't seem to find right now... anyone know
where this is? I'm assuming it's open...).
