No point in leaving this post open if 228 people can't answer a simple guestion. I didn't post this so I could advertise myself, FYI.

Agreed Patrick. I wrote a thing a little while back about AMOLED displays and saving battery life and now I simply use black backgrounds for everything. I guess for now it's still a bit of a novelty but even once it wears off I'll probably stick with darker themes. It matches my personality and my phonescreen so why not?

Funny you 2 mention that. Everything else I use has a black or dark background. I was getting a little bored when it came to personalizing the wallpaper and screen saver.

Mine is black too, as of reading Kris' article a while ago. I'm enjoying the look currently... though I do tend to change my background frequently, so we'll see how long this lasts ;)

Ya, I know what you mean. I have this phase that lasts about a couple weeks, then I just want to change it all. After changing it so many time, it's kinda turning into a sickness now. But then I look at it everyday. I hate it when backgrounds are so light, they're a real strain on the eyes. You almost have trouble focusing when reading anything. But having a dark or black background makes everything much cleaner. I have this weirdness about having my tablet looking like my old linux screen though.

I agree with the dark background being easier on the eyes. How do I change the Androidpit app to a dark background?

I unistalled that app a while ago but I believe you can change the background color preference in your settings. It will give you the option to change background black instead of white. Hope it helps you get over your eye strain Ronald. :wink:

Well now you're just being a bad influence on me, Amy! The point in black is to not use up the battery. However, the idea of a solid dark color is appealing. Purple, of course. I try to purplize as much of life as I can. Bother. I'll have to switch from black soon. I'll hold out as long as I can. :)

lol, sorry about that! I understand about saving on the battery life but I don't know if I can do it. I spent my first twenty some odd years being sucked in by my black linux screen. Everything else has a black background, but I need something other than black on my home screen. I think you're a bad influence as well! Now I can't make up my mind. Purple sounds pretty cool too................... :grin:

Lock Screen is a picture of Luna from Friendship is Magic, while my desktop is this picture I commissioned from a friend of my three favorite characters from one of my all time favorite comics, Homestuck, turned into My Little Pony ponies. I slap ponies on everything... it's a little childish, but they make me feel happier.

Sorry, but I will quote you @Kris :P

I don't understand. It hasn't come out yet, but I am able to easily change between light or dark theme using either AndroidPIT app or App Center.................weird.

I'm confused. I was talking about the new app, not the old App Center app (which did indeed have a dark skin option in the settings). The new app is getting it at some point, either in the new version or the next one.) And I'm lucky cos I get developer versions of the app to play with, I just haven't got a recent one on my phone so I can't check the settings.

***Edit: just asked Henrique and he said dark skin and tablet support is for 2.2 (after the New Year)

Now I'm confused.....I have both AndroidPIT App Center and the AndroidPIT app (1.7.18) installed. I have the black skin option set on both of them. I have both apps installed and set up the same way. =/

To Add: The AndroidPIT app is the one that will only redirect you to play store for app installs. Yes, have that one installed and never use it...........
