Bug Description

Desktop application like Gedit etc remember the application width and height between application restarts. Clock app should exhibit a similar behaviour. Currently it always defaults to a certain width and height.

Difficulty: EASY

---------- Desired solution --------------
This functionality can be easily achieved by using the statesaver feature offered by the Ubuntu SDK. Feel free to read up on http://kryogenix.org/days/2014/01/23/saving-the-current-state-of-your-ubuntu-sdk-app-with-no-effort to get an idea on how to implement this. The bug fix will be less than 4 lines of code.

As a bonus, you can add a little intelligence by checking if the application width and height is below a certain value and if true set it to default width and height. This is to avoid the clock app from starting with a really small height or width where it is barely useable.
