    All I want is a big clock on my today screen, so I don't have to pull out my reading glasses to see the time. Any suggestions? I have tried S2U2, and rlToday, not for me.

    Any suggestions?

    Yeah, I saw a couple of good solutions in that thread. It sounds like this one is the closest to what you want:
    http://www.spoontools.com/index_files/SpoonWatch.htm

    It can even be set to pop up automatically on resume so you get the benefits without sacrificing today screen space.

    The other one referenced in post 12 of that thread (AlDate) is more of a large font today screen plugin, and my be preferable if you want to see it all of the time. (Personally, I value the space on my Today Screen too much for this one.)

    Been playing with spoonwatch over the weekend. Nice little app to put a clock on the screen whenever your device wakes up.

    Eww.. I'm sorry. Seriously though, I like the idea of a big clock filling the screen when the device wakes up. I think I may actually keep SpoonWatch.

    The samsung time thing is not for me. My Today Screen real estate is too valuable to take a double line for a clock. However, for those who are interested (and google-impaired), here's the link:

    darn. the samsung clock thingy supresses the white window that pops-up during a call. I like having easy access to the speakerphone button... oh well back to google.

    Thanks for the link. Still too much space sacrificed for a clock IMO. But, to each his own.

    The headline of this thread is :"All I want is a big clock on my today screen". I can't imagine how to get a big clock on my today screen without spending some space for it.

    Spoonwatch, as per earlier in this thread, will cover the entire screen with a simple elegant digital clock every time the device wakes up. Then you can exit out to the regular today screen with no space wasted.

    Nice solution as you really only need the big clock when you're taking a quick look for the time, not when your navigating around your today screen.

    So far I like the "Pocket Digital Clock" solution the best. Control over the font size, color, opacity, etc allow me to tailor it so it has minimal impact on screen real estate. Spoonwatch was nice, but like so many today screen overlays (S2U2 also comes to mind) it introduces a lag in accessing the phone when receiving a call which is unacceptable to me and has odd behaviors depending on charge/battery state, and sleep/wake state. YMMV.
