I experienced this also on my Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean. This worked for me: 1) Just delete the icon that Evernote Widget places on your home screen. 2) Long tap on an open area on your home screen and wait for "Add to Home Screen' menu to appear. 3) Select 'Widgets' 4) Select 'Evernote Widget' 5) Select widget you want (1x1, 4x2, 4x1) 6) Select 'Done' This worked for me. I'm also using Nova launcher.
