How do I resize the home screen widget?
Aside from being customizable, you can also resize the home screen widget.
After adding the widget to the home screen, simply long-press it again and release. Its corners will then be highlighted, and from there, you can drag the corners to resize it. Some devices may need a reboot after resizing, for the resize to take effect.
The widget can vary from sizes 1x1 to full phone width.
