Default [Q] 1x1 Widgets and Text

I have been dealing with an annoying fact about 1x1 widgets. They are 1x2 in practice since they contain text, and i dont see much sense on that.

Is there anyway i can get rid of the text, here's my home screen:



please note that i wouldnt want to remove the text from the weather widget, im strictly interested on removing the text from the tiny ones that look like icons.

PS, in case somebody wondering:

Weather Widget: 1Weather Widget
Wallpaper: Astronomy Picture of the Week uses NASA's APOD

Look into custom launchers like Apex or Nova - I am using Apex Pro and I have a 4x5 grid with keeps much tighter spacing on text (you can go higher than that, it is all just a matter of personal preference).

So do i, that is Apex Pro there and been an Apex user ever since ICS on my S2. The grid may apply to the icons for what you suggest but it doesnt do anything with 1x1 widgets that look like icons.

I've tried resizing it since Apex supports that, but it wont do it.

A week of googling and it seems this is neglected to the max, im puzzled why people would want text on a 1x1 widget.

In case somebody runs on this with an answer, please dont hesitate to revive the thread.

Your best bet would probably be to decompile widget and to edit the Xml file that had the text or edit the color to be the same as the background color so it just blends in. It would still be there persay but you wouldn't see it cause it would blend in. If you get what I'm saying
