    I've been using HD Widgets for as long as I can remember to put the time and a detailed weather widget on my homescreen. Since getting the 6P and Marshmallow, it crashes anytime I have to reboot the phone. I think it is using KitKat APIs. It does seem to work after that.

    Screenshot below. Obviously, it's the widget below the Google search bar.

    I'm tossing this out to all you Marshmallowers... are you using something better to create a time/weather app widget on your phone?

    Thanks!

    1Weather has some decent widgets. I used one for quite some time. I have since ditched the widget in favor of a notification bar temperature reading (still from 1Weather though)

    That's werid. I haven't had any issues with HD widgets on my device. Been using it for over a month. Are you using any different themes?

    Nope. I used to use themes but the pure Google experience inspired me to use as little as possible. I'm wondering if I should just ignore the crashes since it does recover. I try to find apps using Lollipop and Marshmallow APIs assuming they target all of the advantages of the latest OS.

    I'll try those other two mentioned above too. Thanks!

    Take a look at Transparent Weather Clock. Works great on my N6p.

    That's weird. I've been using HD Widgets since I got the 6P with no issues at all. Also no issues on my upgraded Nexus 7 (2013) with Marshmallow.
