Todoist adds dark theme to its Android app, launches new Wear OS app

Monday, October 8th, 2018

For dark theme enthusiasts, vindication time is finally here. Not only is Google working on dark themes for many of its apps, several other developers and services have joined the darker side and started implementing these AMOLED-friendly designs in their apps. The latest is Todoist, my personal favorite to-do manager. But that's not the only new thing from the service; it's also rolling out an all-new standalone Wear OS app that lets you manage your tasks without having to install the app on your phone.

The march of the dark themed apps continues. After YouTube, Android Messages, the new Google Discover feed, Gboard, and teasers for several other apps, Google News is the lucky recipient of a dark theme update in version 5.5.

The option for the dark theme can be found under Settings -> Dark theme. You can set it to always or never be on, as well as have it automatically turn on with the battery saver and/or at night.

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

It's been a few months since Cody found signs of Gboard's support for a battery saver dark theme toggle, but now the feature is finally rearing its head in the latest update to the app, v7.6.13.

If you're running that version of Gboard, you should go digging in the app's settings under Preferences and scroll down to the Layout subsection. A new toggle should be waiting for you there: Switch to dark theme in battery saver.

Update Notes for YouTube, Duo, Drive, the Google app, and more (September 16, 2018)

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

YouTube’s long-awaited Dark Theme is now rolling out

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

We've been talking about a dark mode in YouTube for ages, ever since it emerged in a teardown almost a year ago. Then iPhone users were treated to it back in March, and even a small number of lucky individuals were granted early access a couple months ago. But it looks like today is the day that everybody else on Android can finally watch YouTube in a dark room without searing their eyes on white backgrounds.

Weekend poll: Do you want a system-wide dark theme in stock Android?

Sunday, August 5th, 2018

As long as (AM)OLED displays have been included in phones, it seems like the most popular feature request for apps has been dark/black themes. Between the power savings, the attractive bezel-blending, and the simple convenience of just not being blinded at night, everyone from enthusiasts to night owls has enjoyed these gloomy additions. But right now, it's all still a per-app affair that most first-party Google apps don't participate in. But, if it were possible, would you want a system-wide dark/night mode setting in stock Android?

YouTube dark theme now available for some on Android

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

These days, an often-seen feature request for apps (and Android in general) is dark mode. We first noticed that YouTube was preparing to bring one to its Android app in November of last year, but while the web and iOS versions have had it for months, there's only been radio silence on the Android side. However, we're now seeing several reports of dark mode being automatically activated on the YouTube Android app.

The Gboard team is hard at work building new features into its app, and the latest update demonstrates just how much effort has gone into it. A few additions are already visible, including spell check, a mini mode for the morse code keyboard, and an adaptive icon. Although, the spell check feature still seems to be disabled. Turning to a teardown, we can see development on Minis, which are basically a variant on Allo's Selfie Stickers.
