I have been waiting for a nixie widget ever since i built my own nixie clock. This clock is awesome, great job. *update* Downloaded this on my new Galaxy. The screen rotate causes the widget to disappear. Going into and exiting the phone settings brings it back.

Recent update broke the widget Had this app for a few years. The recent update in March caused the widget to disappear. And trying to adjust it's settings causes the app to crash. WTH did they need to update a clock app for? Can't they just fix it and leave it be? Getting tired of my phone always needing updates!!
