Resize Widget

    So I recently switched over from an iPhone, and I like the android os so much better!

    Tonight I discovered how to put a direct dialer on my home screen. The widget is one by one. That is ok for the initial click. Now it is a folder and when clicked it has six icons for who I call the most. These icons are also one by one, but I would rather have them resized to 1.5 bu 1.5 or even 2 by 2. This would be much easier on my 50 year old eyes! Is this possible?

    so in other words I click my direct dial folder from my home screen, and when it opens, all the icons inside of it are 2 by 2.

    I am using Nova Launcher Prime if it matters.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't use the stock widget for direct dial. In general, you can long press on the widget and you can stretch it out. But there is a Galaxy 4S stock widget called "Favorites Contact" that's larger. You could try that. Or you can try Pixelphone Pro (there is a paid and a free version). The Favorites widget is much larger. When you open it, you get 4X3 grid that fills up the entire screen (you can scroll down for 6 more).

    Just long press the widget in Nova, click on Resize and then make it whatever size you want. But you can't do half sizes.
