    Looking for a way to make a few Big icons on the Nexus 7 for elderly parent. Skype, Facebook, Weather, PhotoBucket....that's it.

    Tried dxTop but can't figure out how to make big icons. Thanks

    I'd like to make the app icons in the quick launch bar much bigger. Big like they were before the 4.2 update.

    Will the above apps/fixes work for this as well? Sorry to hijack the thread but it brought back my problem :(

    Most Launchers will let you resize icons (I use ssLauncher, make them full screen if you want). Secret is searching Google Images for large png files. Just download and put in gallery and replace icon with it. Can also use text to make it real obvious, like the word "Play" here launches media apps:

    PS: Changing app drawer grid to small like 3x3 will make LARGE icons there, with ssLauncher you can make dock any size you want.
