Given the recent interest surrounding dark themes within the community, I thought it’d be a good idea to share this post. Until now I had only solved this on desktop devices thanks to a chrome extension called Dark Reader. This method, however, takes care of the issue when using a mobile phone (at least for Android devices). I don’t own any Apple devices so I couldn’t tell you if it works on their platform or not.
Very helpful. Thanks!
In Thailand now. Next up Tanzania and Philippines.
The dark mode is a modern trend. Developers are actively adding this feature to their applications, and Google is also not lagging behind. But activating the setting in each application separately is tedious. Fortunately, there is a better method to get the most out of the dark interface with a few clicks. This article gives an explanation of how to switch on the Dark Mode to every device and app.
Is it really a modern trend? It seems like the history of the GUI, some of the original interfaces were in what we would now call "high contrast mode". I'd like to think with nightmode GUIs are just returning to their roots :)

The main reason why I use dark themes is because of the strain on my eyes. I use my phone for long periods of time and a white background can really start to hurt my eyes. When I first started using Reddit, the app had a dark mode which was super convenient. Sadly, this feature was removed without any explanation.
