After phone shutting down by running out of battery, when I start it again all the widgets disappear. At first I thought that this is a problem of my launcher (Apex), but even the native one (Trebuchet) lose all the widgets. They won't disappear if I shut down or reboot the phone as usual. Why is that?

Phone information:

  • OS: CyanogenMod 11
  • Model: Samsung GT-I9195
  • Launchers: Apex (free) and Trebuchet

Are you installing apps on your SD card? If so this is the main reason for this to happen. Apps having widget functionalities should be installed in phone storage . Some app even give you a small pop up saying

Widgets Functionalities might not work if you install this app in you external storage.

Hope This helped.
