Full source code available here: redditastic brings your favorite subreddits to your home screen or lock screen!

redditastic is a stand-alone home screen widget for Android 3.0+ devices (Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean). Great as a companion to a full-fledged reddit app you're probably already using!

Known Issue:
* Login no longer works :(

* Load posts in many popular reddit apps including reddit is fun, Reddit News, baconreader, Diode, Reddionic, Reddita - or in your favorite browser
* Customize each widget - change the name, subreddits, and sorting
* Login to reddit to view your own reddit front page
* Multiple subreddits can be combined in a single widget
* Use the action menu on each widget to easily edit or refresh (collapsed by default, tap the '>' to expand it)
* Pick between a light or dark theme
* Scrollable and resizable
* Automatic refresh
* Change the default action for posts with links (View Link, View Comments, or Ask).

Note: If you change the default action for posts with links, be aware that only links leading to can be loaded in your installed reddit apps (and not all apps handle all types of reddit links). Non-reddit links will use your browser or possibly YouTube. Most reddit apps give you an easy way to view the link if one exists, so leaving the setting on "View Comments" is recommended.
