Website and Android app both need a dark theme

Both the website and the Android app need a dark theme. Having even more themes would be even better.

Great idea. I love using dark themes because I feel that they save battery, energy. I also feel they are better for the eyes, especially at night.

Seconding this. I like the blue, but dark doesn't hurt eyes.

The mobile app needs the ability to reflect themes set on the desktop/web app. Hopefully that's coming soon!

When waking up in the night because tasks still evolve from never sleeping parts of the brain, it is really helpful for me going back to sleep to add them immediately to RTM. A dark theme would really help the sleepy eyes and to not wake up fully by watching the white light from my smartphone/tablet!

Dark theme is a matter of accessibility for not too young eyes, when all other apps have got dark background, and switching to light theme is real stress for eyes and brain.

I have very long list of apps with dark theme: Android itself, book reader, extensions for browsers, Intellij IDEA, KDE with all it's apps, and so on. Practically all apps in use at my case.

Frankly speaking dark theme absence is absolute show stopper and the reason to prefer other competitor rather RTM.

A proper dark theme would be really nice - none of the web themes available change the background of the task list so it always stays blindingly white. I can't imagine it'd take long for an RTM developer to put together a theme that fixes this properly.

In the meantime, I got sick of staring at that white background and slapped together a basic dark theme for the webapp that can be applied via the Stylish extension for Chrome/Firefox. It's not perfect but is working well enough for me so far.

If you want to try it, the CSS rules and a screenshot can be found here: https://gist.github.com/andrewramsay/36e9537eb9a1e51f2bc60592474bdc22

To use it, open Stylish options, select "Add new style", and copy/paste the CSS into the "Code" box. Then click "Specify", change the dropdown to "URLs on the domain", and put "rememberthemilk.com" in the text field.

Note: I've also set the RTM theme to the plain dark grey background, not sure it'll work as well with any of the others.

Disclaimer: I'm not a web developer and I'm sure there are bits of the web UI I've missed, so some text may not be very legible. If anyone would like to build on this and cover all the corner cases I've probably missed, please do :)
