Just to clarify, the Android OS does support status, but in order to do status the Android way, it's a polling mechanism that only fires every 15min or so. Not exactly real-time. If you tap the icon ON/OFF we could should status right there during the action, however, it wouldn't update until you interacted with the icon which isn't desirable either.
What we want to offer is a real-time widget status that just works 24/7 real-time without impacting your battery with a costly polling implementation.
This is something we believe is possible to offer and we are continuing to work toward this solution.
