Really enjoying Findings, have been using it since the start of my university education in science. Something I’ve realised with the new version 2.0 is just how bright the UI is. It’s so bright it hurts my eyes. I am photosensitive, I have accessibility features enabled on my iOS devices to decrease the eye-searing brightness of the displays. But there’s limited support for that on macOS, and many apps that are designed for long-term use (like text editors, terminals, other technical user powertools) all have dark modes. Findings’ UI is great, it’s beautiful, but it’s just too bright.
Dark mode is absolutely an aesthetic choice, but it’s more than that. It’s an accessibility feature. I have a seriously hard time staring at bright white apps all day, and do everything I can to save my eyes from that fate. I have custom prescription lenses to soften the impact of sunlight. OmniOutliner? Custom all-black document theme. iBooks? Black style. Safari reader? Black. iTerm? Black. Ulysses? Black. I was so happy when YouTube added a dark mode. Even writing this feedback report is making me uncomfortable and I’ve had to decrease my screen’s brightness twice.
Please, please give us dark mode. Night Shift is not enough.
