This morning I received the email to try Chip in Dark Mode whoop whoop
My biggest disappointment is that ones iPhone has to be in Dark Mode for the app to be in Dark Mode; [unless I’m missing something] it’s not just a toggle option from within the app (which is what I was expecting) . . .
I’m not a big fan of the iPhone Dark Mode (I don’t think emails display properly) so don’t tend to have it on . . .
Was there a technical limitation as to why it wasn’t just a toggle option from within the app?
(Also as a P.S. the AutoSave notifications are only set to one decimal point, not two - more just a niggle than anything).
Could’nt agree more. I don’t want my entire phone in dark mode, just the colour scheme of this app. Seems like half a job to not implement it as an app specific option. Disappointing!
We may be able to implement a switch within the app on a future version. @SamyChip, could this be considered?
Hi @BigRed & @Viney ,
I’m an iOS Developer at Chip. There’s no technical reason why we couldn’t introduce a toggle within the app however the OS actually gives us a shortcut for users to switch between Light/Dark interfaces if you use the Control Centre display, which is actually quicker than navigating to a settings panel within the application.
To access the Control Centre:
- Swipe down from the top right of your phone (Face ID devices)
- Swipe from the bottom of your phone on iPhones with fingerprint scanners (Touch ID devices)
This can be added to your control centre by:
Settings → Control Centre → Customise Controls & Select “Dark Mode” option
This is how it looks; it’s the one in the bottom left.
Thanks @JackChip; but I think you’re missing the point . . .
What you’re saying is, if I choose to have my iPhone NOT in Dark Mode, but want to have Chip in Dark Mode, I have to switch Dark Mode on & off through iOS every time I use the app . . ?
Whereas if the Toggle option was within the app, once it’s on, it’s on; this would save users such as myself and @BigRed having to complete that pointless process and eliminates the issue.
(N.B. Dark Mode on iOS can also be shortcut-accessed by long-pressing the brightness slider).
