Wish this was an app instead of a widget. Or just the option. I can try to convert it over myself, but I'd rather not deal with the hassle.

Use Amnesty singles for one widget and make sure when you drop this widget in Amnesty singles select without dependency so Amnesty will make Application out of widget.
I tried and works like charm.
Hope this helps!!
