Dark theme widget

orsoni Pro says:


A black style option would be good for battery saving on oled displays and it would play nicer with gingerbread which is mostly black background.

Thank you

Even better - allow the user to pick the colors! Current whiteness is not very eyeball friendly.

+1 I would second the ability to choose your colors (or even transparency). The white is just too stark and bright.

Bumping this thread because I wanted to add that, currently, no CM7 themes support RTM, so we cannot make it darker, not even this way.
Theming would be very cool so I thought I could add support for RTM on some existing themes.
I had a look at the layout and resource files but they look obfuscated or something.
This might explain why there is no theming for RTM.
Developers, any advice?

Excellent idea!

If we are changing colours etc. please can we make the colours of the task-types user customisable as well ? {Those of us who have a touch of colour-blindness in blue part of the spectrum find it almost impossible to distinguish between normal priority and low priority tasks on colour alone}

Dark color is more consistent with most Android theme.

+1 New widget is better than the old one, but only having blue and white is still too limiting.

I'm not sure if me adding to this thread will help, but I too would love to see a dark theme of some sort. Like many others, my phone uses an OLED screen, so I tend to keep just about everything dark. This makes the very bright white RTM widget on my home screen quite an eye-sore. (Literally!) If custom themes are too much trouble to code into the app, then perhaps just make "light" and "dark" themes we can choose from.

Just an additional comment in response to all those who are down-voting this idea. I don't think anyone is suggesting that the current light theme get removed and replaced with a dark theme. We would just like the ability to *choose* between different themes. Some folks like light themes, some like dark. Give us the option between the two in the app/widget.

An optional, darker themed widget would not only help my eyes but also would avoid annoying people around me when I use my device in dark locations.
