How To Make Your Home Screen Icons Bigger
There are numerous ways to personalize your Android phone and make it the device that truly fits your requirements and matches your mobile lifestyle. Some changes are big and can alter the way your smartphone operates completely – like rooting your phone and installing a custom ROM, while others are minor – and yet by no means less useful.
In this post we’ll cover a small trick on customizing your homescreen by making certain or all icons on it bigger.
Why Would I Want To Make My Icons Bigger?
Surely, it’s all a matter of personal choice. You may use certain applications more often than others and, thus – want them to be easy to get to. This way, making some icons bigger may be a way of optimizing your screen for more efficient use. For instance, if you often use your phone for taking pictures, making the Camera icon bigger will let you access the app quickly when you spot a camera-worthy moment.
Feel like you can’t see the icons on your screen well enough? Make them as big as you want, so you will not have to confuse WeChat with Whatsapp or Google Maps with Google Play Store.
It could also be a fun design element – alternating bigger and smaller icons can give your phone’s home screen a different look and make your phone more fun to operate.
How To Make My Android Icons Bigger?
It’s all in the app. Play Store’s application, Giganticon, promises to make any icon bigger in quick and simple way – and does keep its promise.
Head over to the store and get the app – Giganticon.
Install the app and add it to your Widget list.
Fire up the app.
If you open the app from your home screen, it will ask you to go to the list of widgets and go from there. Follow the tip and after selecting Giganticon from your list of widgets, you will be then asked to choose an icon that you want to make bigger. Pick one and you will see it appear on your home screen. Press and hold the new icon and you will see blue borders appearing around it – drag the edges of the border to get the icon to the needed size. There, you’re done!
