    Resize the Status Bar?

    I use my Thrive as a gps in my RV. I also use it as a music player while on the road. Overall it works well. However, it can be difficult to switch from one app to another while driving. The active apps show up in the status bar, but it is so small and dim it is very hard to accurately tap the right item. Is it possible to enlarge and brighten the status bar? So far I haven't found any way to do it, but I am really new to the Thrive.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried the voice action command, but I don't think it is ready for prime time. The "listen to" command always took me to YouTube, not my media player. Another problem for my use is I still need to hit that little 'home' button, and then the microphone button before I can use it.

    What I really want is a larger status bar, or some other way, that I can easily hit at arms length while driving so I can switch between my gps app and media player app.

    Only way I could think of is it to be modded that way by a developer..
