Q: Will this drain my battery?
A: The background service is very light-weight in terms of RAM/CPU usage. Also, the clock is active (ticks) only when the user is interacting with the device and stops immediately when the screen goes off. Furthermore, the background service gets killed when the battery goes below a critical level (15%) and starts automatically when it regains some juice.
Q: Widget stops randomly
A: You need to white-list Epoch in any inbuilt/3rd party battery/memory optimizer. In some phones (Mostly non-stock) you also need to allow app AutoStart permissions.
Lenovo: Settings->Safe Center
Q: Widget stopped completely (not responding to clicks)
A: The widget uses background service to keep updating itself so if free RAM is low then system might kill it. Though once enough free RAM is available it will start automatically. You can always re-add the widget on the homescreen in order to force-start service.
This app does not require any device permissions.
