    I also find the full black-white contrast to be too much, and second a vote for a consistent dark grey.

    I was waiting for someone to write in about this on mobile. :) 

    Yeah, this is a mistake on our parts that we are actively fixing. Should have this all consistent across platforms and better by next week (or right after Thanksgiving).

    Thanks for writing in and thanks for your patience!

    Question; why were you waiting for someone to write about this? Are you only addressing issues we write about?

    I think Lee meant they knew about it already and were already on the case...

    Yeah his comment reads like "yeah we knew that had happened and we've been working on it. Figured someone would post about it before we fixed it.". Not sure why you read it as they were waiting. Devs have been great, responsive and listening.

    @keith - absolutely. It's one of the most responsive, interactive product team/user dev processes I've experienced. Awesomeness.

    Thanks for the kudos @adam and @keith! Very much appreciated!

    Yeah @dustin, just trying to add some light-heartedness on the forums, but perhaps tone came across incorrectly. We fix bugs as fast as we can as we find them, I was just surprised no one had also written in about a bug of this magnitude yet.

    ok, apologies, I was misunderstanding; I'm all for levity. There's just been so many little finicky bugs lately that I don't have time to write a detailed post about each one. 

    Thanks for the continued development & support, looking forward to it all!

    New UI usually has a lot of ironing afterwards. Especially on the wild west of Android hardware and OEM launchers. 😋.

    Of all my apps and the hundreds I've tried. WorkFlowy is the one that is absolutely part of my day to day. Looking forward to it's future, it's present is already awesome

    This should now be improved on beta (TestFlight). Let me know if you see otherwise!

    Seeing gray theme from web app in the contents / body of the app

    iOS 12.1 here

    The gray is nice : )

    Blue highlight colour is still a bit loud imo

    Will the bars at top and bottom stay black? Might be interesting to see them in gray also...

    Back to solid black on Android beta? Update came through today and the gray is gone. Back to all black . Intentional?

    Yeah, the goal is to have it be all black. Anyone still seeing it not the way they want it?

    It's all black, but that's not the way I and others want it - dark gray is so much easier on the eyes. That contrast is brutal currently. Really, I'd like the same dark gray across all platforms and devices. It's actually part of the workflow for me - it reduces mental overhead when the UI mentally "disappears" across devices because the UX is consistent.

    It's for that reason that I'd like the option to sync starred items across devices. Less to think about/remember, and the focus then remains solely on the content.

    I agree the dark grey tones / low saturation darks out there are much easier on the eyes. And I know a few people who prefer the strong blacks. I really enjoy the grey theme of the desktop and hope you implement that dark alongside this black theme for us pro users !!
