redditastic – reddit widget


redditastic brings your favorite reddit.com 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!

Features:
* 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 reddit.com 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.

* Fixed bug related to maintaining login and showing your personal front page. You'll need to re-login to fully fix. Apologies for the inconvenience.

1.3:
* Widget can now be added to the lock screen in Android 4.2

1.2:
* Added automatic refresh. Defaults to every 24 hours - can be changed or disabled in main settings.

Please add subreddit titles to each post, and allow clicking directly on the thumbnail to open the link while anywhere else leading to comments. Would be 5 stars.

Best reddit widget, but.... Subscribed subreddits with underscores in their name do not show up in the list. They must be typed manually. Fix this and you get 5 stars!

No HTTPS Login Support This has been my go-to widget for browsing reddit for over a year now. It has worked great up until now, and would've been a 4-5 star rating. That is, until reddit added the optional HTTPS login. The feature is still not supported by the widge. Unfortunately, it's starting to appear that it's been abandoned. The last update was almost 2 years ago, so I can't imagine an update for that one feature is on the way anytime soon. Too bad......
