add a 1x1 minimalistic widget
There seems to be a need for a minimalistic 1x1 widget. Justifiably, some people find the eyes too damn ugly.
A minimalistic 1x1 widget might simply have the app name title and a record button which switches to pause and stop buttons when pressed. No outline, no background, nothing else.
It's possible that this could be achieved by making the existing widgets more customizable by allowing parts of them to be disabled.
