iOS:RFD Forums App Dark Mode request POLL!

Hi,

Trying to get used to using the forums app and have a few questions and requests:

1) Can a dark mode be added to save OLED users some battery life and just overall easier reading — see poll and lend your support for this

2) Can there be a little contrast fill added between threads instead of just white? Again, readability might improve

3) Why does the Forums app have native iOS back gesture vs. the original RFD app which has a “non-native” back gesture?

Thanks

1) I just asked and there's no current plans to add that. If we get enough feedback requesting that feature it may increase the odds of us adding it in.

2) I see a solid grey line between threads and posts. Are you saying it's not dark enough for you to easily distinguish where one ends and the next begins?

3) The original RFD app just uses a web view for forums which means you're not getting a native app experience. It was too much for us to add all the forum features into the main app which is why we focused on building a better independent app for forum use.

Re: 1) I guess I can start a poll to garner some support!

Re: 2) yeah, there is a separator but I find it’s not enough for the eye to separate threads and could benefit from even a slight fill

I just discovered the forum app and have been pleasantly surprised at how good it is considering I was never a fan of the old RFD app. Just a few bugs/suggestions I've noticed:

1) when going back to home screen on iOS, the app icon does a wierd animation that momentarily shows black around the app icon
2) ability to jump to last page easily
