  • Colors (Currently limited to just black on white or vice versa)

  • Background opacity
  • Font size (small / medium / large)
  • Number of buttons and you can configure each button (7 choices: playpause/fast forward/rewind/skip next/skip back/toggle shuffle/toggle repeat)
  • Playing info.  Widgets get 2-4 slots (depending on the size) that can be customized similar to the now playing custom slots.  The number is variables is not as extensive as now playing but there is a fairly good selection.
