Unless I'm misunderstanding you I think places like have some nice widgets.
Some of which are able to play nicely in both mobile and desktop
environments, they might be simple i.e. but they can do the job.
It doesn't seem a significant hurdle to create your own or to use a
third party control if browser's aren't as flexible as required.
It's not ideal either though.
