I have tried uninstalliing and reinstalling, clearing the app
data etc but the problem still remains. I hope that the new version
is a free update rather than having to pay for a new version that
works properly. We shall see.

@ Andy : According to the developers. This could come from the
Android's system. Check if you can make an update. The next new
version of Beautiful Widgets will be of course free for all of our
users (like an update).
@Leflou - I'm running pure Android AOSP 4.1.1 from Google on my
Nexus S 4G and I'm experiencing the same issue of the widget
disappearing upon reboot. My other widgets, including another 3rd
party weather widget, do not do this.

I'm running stock 4.1.1 from Google on my Nexus S 4G. Same thing
here. After a reboot I get "problem loading home widget". I have to
drag the widget to the trash and then add it to the home screen
Considering this is an error on Google's part that reflects
poorly on YOU when paying customers think you're just lazy devs
(not the case, obviously), YOU should be raising hell @ Google to
get this fixed.
Everyone on this thread, it wouldn't hurt to star this issue and
let Google know it's a priority.
Also, this workaround really shouldn't be necessary. If it's
really the new JB encryption that causes this, give us an option to
disable it. This looks like a typical case of DRM only affecting
paying customers - pirates just download the apk and don't even
notice this issue.
So are you suggesting we just pirate your app? Or are you going
to stop selling it and give us all a refund?
Because, even if it is Google's fault, selling an app that you
know won't work seems very dishonest to say the least.

@rbhamilton: things are not so simple. Lot of our users don't
have Jelly Bean system and for now, the developers can't propose
solution to fix this. They are working on a brand new version of
the application and they are all focused on this (that's why
there's not lot of update since several weeks).
As soon as we can propose a decent solution to our customers, we
will do so.
I was searching for this same problem on my Nexus S cause I've
started to have the problem of beautiful widgets disappearing since
I updated to version 5.0! It never happened to me before whether I
was on stock rom or custom rom, ICS or JB! I haven't changed roms
now, I only updated beautiful widgets to 5.0 when the problem
appeared and it reproduces itself with every reboot!
I think I may have solved it now:
1. uninstall beautiful widgets
2. reboot (not sure this is necessary but that's how I did it)
3. reinstall beautiful widgets
Done 2 reboots to test and the widgets are still there! This
happens to me with some other apps as well when updating them, like
twitter not showing notifications. Reinstalling solved it too.
@Sally: forgot to mention a very well done for the newest 5.0
update, love the new UI and the sence-jar inverted theme I'm using
for the clock makes my homescreen look slick! only complaint I have
is that it takes a little while longer to display the weather
information than the previous version. But in general I'm quite
