    Just activated GN and quickly noticed how small icons r in the status bar. Still working my way around ICS but is there a way to get the status bar a little bigger. I'm 45 and eyesite isn't quite what it was and i use gauge battery widget and date in tray. If no solution any recomondations of widgets that i could put on homescreen that would simulate the same thing as those apps i mentioned. Thanks

    I think Circle Battery Widget would help, and it looks nice. I used to have it on mine.
    Fancy Widget makes for a great clock and has different styles.

    I think those two cover your most important icons on the status bar.

    If rooted there are ways to make the status bar bigger, and/or ways to make the text in the statusbar bigger. I haven't experimented with the images yet, but with some trickery I am sure this would be possible as well.

    If not rooted, there are definitely a ton of widgets for battery. I believe even something like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pvy.batterybar <-- that can be used without root.

    If rooted, use AOKP ROM, and use the "old geezers theme". Great for my old eyes!

    Yes. But there actually is a theme called "old geezers " that makes everything in the status bar larger. Icons, text, etc.
