Because dark mode is ok in other apps but dark mode in the Tado app looks awful.
I have an update on this topic:
The dark mode toggle switch is about to be released for iOS (2-3 weeks).
For Android it will take a bit longer due to some other priorities for that team.
I find it funny that Tado˚ thinks "about to be released" means 2-3 weeks 🤣
The feature is part of app v 7.4 that is being rolled out today for iOS users. As anticipated, for Android the wait will be a bit longer, but we are committed to delivering the feature also there.
@Karpenteri would be nice if you could open a support ticket for this and you would include also your device model and iOS version.
It looks like a revision to the revised original release is required already........you really couldn't write a script for this.
I fully agree, please make dark mode optional and not default. Please fix this soon for Android as well.
Just received an email from Tado advertising their Smart Thermostat Black Edition which neatly 'proves the point' that dark mode should be an option. That email from Tado says:
"And for an improved experience in low-light environments, the tado° app is now available in Dark Mode."
No, it isn't "Available in Dark Mode". It is presented to the user in Dark Mode whether they like it or not if their phone is set to use Dark Mode!
@AgBl @DrBrush why would Tado˚ not use "System Default" as default, ALL other app's follow this method (at least on iPhone), and I am pretty sure it is one of Apple's UI design guidelines, IMO it would make no sense to "Default" to "White Mode" if your phone is set to "Dark Mode".
Same issue here. I’ve updated the app to 7.4 and the Appearance setting is now added to the menu but it won’t let me change the setting from ‘System Default’. Phone running iOS 15.7.
Came to complain but I see that you are implementing a fix thank you. I'm a little amazed that this got past your UX designers and any analysts/data scientists in your team. They should have been able to point out that the temperature charts are far more difficult to interpret and really fail due to the similarity of colours/shades used.
Looking forward to putting it back to normal.
@Manuel is 'Dark Mode' coming to the web app version ?
The new dark / light mode manual switch option doesn't work on iOS 15.7.1 / tado° App 7.5 (12807)
works well with iOS 15.7.1 and App 7.5 (12816)
Thank you so much for implementing a 'fix' so quickly.
🌑😎 From today you should find the Appearance settings with the Dark Mode Toggle Switch also in the beta version of the Android app. The feature is part of app v 7.8. Once the new version gets rolled out every user with a supported device should be able to choose their preferred mode.
@andyblac for now this feature is not planned for the webapp. Please open a new discussion for that and we can see if the community upvotes the idea.
