Dark theme apps

Smartphone displays have developed a lot in recent years. Starting off with the IPS LCD displays, we now have AMOLED and Super AMOLED displays which produce crisp images. The advantage of these AMOLED displays comes as a gift to the users. Although AMOLED displays do not come in those mid-range smartphones, flagship device users have various perks.

Again, the main advantage for the AMOLED displays come with deep black colors as the pixels go dead. As a result, it helps in increasing the battery backup and protecting your eyes at night. So, here we are with five of the best dark theme apps which are available on the Google Play Store.

Twitter

Twitter has been out here for a while. It introduced the dark mode as a night mode earlier which was just a grey/blue themed app. Although it helped in protecting your eyes in the dark, it didn’t necessarily make the app pitch black. With the recent update for the iOS users, there was a Lights out mode which darkened the theme much further making the pixels go dead. Twitter is also known as one of the most used social media apps.

Then the moon emojis will fall down into your screen and there will be pop-up asking you to turn on the Dark Mode.
