Text is disappearing from the Google Feed for some, but there’s an easy fix

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

A bug in a recent beta version of the Google app is causing text to disappear from the Google Feed for some users, both on the Android P Developer Preview and Android O. We noticed a similar issue in our teardown of version 8.3. Luckily, the issue is easily remedied in most cases.

Should you find yourself afflicted, try changing your wallpaper to a lighter one. Certain parts of Android change from white to black depending on your wallpaper, and this problem seems to primarily affect users who have a dark theme.

30 Android apps with dark themes that are easy on the eyes

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Personally, I love dark themes in apps. Oftentimes, one of the first things I do is switch to the Night or Dark Mode in every one that supports it. Since I know that I'm not the only one out there that wants my apps to reflect my soul, I gathered together thirty to help some of you get started on your path to the dark side. 

All jokes and edginess aside, dark themes are much easier on your eyes, especially in low-light conditions, and can take a bit of stress off the batteries in phones or tablets with OLED displays.

YouTube dark mode starts hitting mobile, Android expected ‘soon’

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

The much-anticipated system-wide dark mode we were looking forward to (after the arrival of some tantalizing evidence) in an upcoming Android release may not exactly be right around the corner, but there's still ample reason to be excited if you're the kind of user who craves that easy-on-the-eyes look for your mobile apps. For months now we've been expecting a new dark mode to go live for YouTube, and while Google's not quite ready to push the button on dark-mode YouTube for Android, the feature is currently heading out to iOS users.

YouTube v13.01 continues development on dark mode, may enable swipe-to-skip ads, and relocates autoplay setting [APK Teardown]

Friday, January 12th, 2018

YouTube just took a big version jump from v12.49 to v13.01, but you probably won't notice a lot of changes if you're just tapping around. In fact, this update appears to be pretty average for for most of YouTube's releases, which usually include a couple tweaks here and there, and sometimes some interesting material for a teardown – and this update has both. You'll find a new page in the Settings screen for autoplay options, and a teardown turns up some inspiring progress on a dark mode and possibly an adjustment to the ad-skipping experience.

Microsoft Edge update adds dark theme and password syncing

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Seemingly out of nowhere, Microsoft announced last month that it would bring its Edge Browser to Android and iOS. The Android version went live a week later, and despite having limited functionality at first, it has the basics right. Microsoft has started to fill in the feature gaps, with the latest update adding a dark theme and password syncing.

The main reason Microsoft is making Edge for mobile is to give existing Edge users a seamless workflow across all their devices.

YouTube v12.45 reveals a dark mode is in the works [APK Teardown]

Friday, November 17th, 2017

We've all been there. You're caught up in a YouTube spiral, each video you watch ends with a recommendation that you can't refuse. Day turns to night and the bright background of the app contrasts sharply with the darks and midtones of most videos, making your eyes more tired than they need to be. You rub your eyes to bring them back to life, but it's only a temporary fix. What you really want is to make those bright white backgrounds go away.

Automatic night mode is now available in the official Twitter client

Monday, June 26th, 2017

The first-party Twitter client now has another great feature under its belt. Now you can set the app to transition between the standard white theme and the blue night mode theme automatically, based on the time of day. So if you're tired of having to manually flip between each to prevent sudden night-time blindness during an innocent midnight tweet, you can now rest easy knowing your eyes will be safe, if not from the ravages of Twitter, then at least from bright lights. 

The cycle of development for automatic night mode has been a long one.
