What happened to night mode?

I could be wrong but I remember night mode being teased in the release of the redesigned app. If I remember correctly, it was supposed to come in a future update after launch.

It's been awhile and I see no sign of it. Was it scrapped?

in the android app it's in the settings section of the app (General Settings > Midnight Theme).

i don't have an ios device to check, but my understanding is that it's there, too. let us know if you have trouble locating it.

On iOS, General Settings only has "Display Images in List" and "Show Expired Deals".

I'm pretty sure the Android version had a big update a while back with iOS being labeled as "Coming Soon". I don't think the iOS version is on-par yet from what I can see.

Android has midnight mode, iOS does not unfortunately. On iOS it was a sizable project; we've opted to focus on some great initiatives coming very soon that we think will deliver you a better experience and relate more to how the app works than how it looks. We are improving search, deal alerts, adding PM support and giving you a Profile page that will allow you to more easily digest your notifications, etc. The Slickdeals app team is pretty small so sometimes we have to make tough choices on what to focus on - midnight theme is still on the radar of possible iOS initiatives though so we appreciate you reporting your interest in it.

I'm a big night mode fan, but the midnight theme on the android app is kind of a pain in the butt to use. I love the black background, but the colors chosen for text is really bad. In the forums section, the forum titles are in a dark blue which are difficult to distinguish on the black background. Other areas of the app use a light gray text which is fine , but it also uses a dark gray text which is not easily seen either. I'd like to see the choice of colors get changed in a future update. I highly doubt it requires much effort to simply changing the color of text.

In our next release, hopefully coming this week, we will have a number of the midnight mode issues resolved, including those you mention above. After the release, please let me know if you continue to see any odd colors - apologies for the inconvenience!
