More about Widget Screensaver

Widget Screensaver Description: Android has a native screen saver option (yes, I also forgot about that) that was called Daydream before Daydream VR was a thing and is now just called "Screen Saver".
I was surprised not a single screen saver app allowed you to put a widget inside the screen saver, so I quickly whipped up this app to do exactly that.
Now you can reuse that old tablet or phone (with Android 5.0+) as a night stand with your favorite widget for instance!
Or you can show your calendar, the latest news, the location of your friends (see my upcoming Magical Location Clock app!), or use one of those apps where you can completely design a widget yourself.
The ecosystem is the limit!
The app has burn-in protection, so you don't have to worry about that.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

Frequently asked questions:

Widget Screensaver doesn't work?
Please explain what's not working so I can fix it. If any crashes occur, submit them so I can see them and if not, please tell me what does work and what steps you've taken until the problem occurs.

Widget Screensaver doesn't work for this widget?
Please tell me which widget suffers from the problem (with screenshots and link) so I can try and fix it.

Widget Screensaver doesn't work on my Huawei/Honor device running EMUI? I only see default screensavers!
Unfortunately this is due to Huawei blocking third party screensavers. Check this post from XDA for a workaround: http://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-set-a-custom-screen-saver-on-huawei-and-honor-devices-running-emui/
The command to use is "adb shell settings put secure screensaver_components nl.jolanrensen.widgetscreensaver/.WidgetScreensaverService"

Can Widget Screensaver be used as always on display or when not charging?
While things like detecting when the screen is covered don't work, it is possible to start the screensaver anytime the screen turns off using Tasker (http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.taskerm). Check out this profile I made: http://taskernet.com/shares/?user=AS35m8lSMUM1kmI1XBT43fz8jPnrlYjhice8CTl5hPp7dfqM4hBX6WmixBEmdjRJJm5dUxIy&id=Profile%3AStart+Screensaver+When+Screen+Off

I'll try to respond as quickly as possible, but it's just me, a student with a hobby, so forgive me if I cannot always respond immediately.
