Android Widgets concept

Quick change of plan and direct access, A Micro–UX delight, MVP of IOT.
I have thought about this opportunity around JAN 2014 after few rounds of guerrilla testing and user interviews I have personally conducted. Unfortunately it was not set as a priority despite the low efforts to produce the widget.

An indipendent developer, hacked and produced the same concept one year later, DEC 2015. I assume as a user, like many others, he was screaming for that functionality.
