Maybe I am ignorant but I really don't understand why it takes so much time to implement such a simple feature as a dark theme to Evernote application. There are workarounds to change website background colour but I don't use website, only Windows and Android apps. :-(

And AustinG has replied to my Evernote support ticket ("Chris" is Evernote CEO O'Neill, who responded to me on Twitter); we now have official confirmation, for the first time in four years, from both the CEO and from product support, that this is being worked on:

Hi,

Thanks for contacting Evernote Support and for submitting this request. As Chris mentioned, this is something we're working on, but I do not currently have an estimate on when it will be implemented. We'll continue to announce updates to the apps as we release them.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or issues with Evernote.

Thanks,

Austin G.

Yup. I'm yet ANOTHER user looking for a solution. I tried Alternote, but Alternote doesn't allow you to open two note windows at once (wtf?), but at least it has a couple different color backgrounds. I can't speak to its overall integration with evernote. 

But seriously, the UI "improvements" haven't really been an improvement. Bringing us back to the old days of really stark black and white monitors. Sheesh.

To Evernote Developers:

Please please please add a dark theme or night mode with black background with white text.  It will save my eyes...it's so harsh looking at the bright white screen.  Plus it will save on battery life.  So many other apps have been able to implement this option (eg. Pocket, NYT etc) and it looks so good.

PLEASE.  ADD.  DARK THEME OPTION.  SOON.

I love Evernote and have been a premium paying customer for years but I may have to leave if you can't offer a dark theme option soon.  Already looking into other options...

I've given up about 4 months ago and switched to an IDE project in Git repository.

Registered at CloudHQ and set up a sync to Google Drive https://www.cloudhq.net/synchronize/evernote/google_docs
Downloaded the files and made an Intellij IDEA project out of them.

Created a free private Git repository at https://bitbucket.org 

  • git clone
  • copy project there
  • git commit 
  • git push

Added plugins: 

And now I have:

  • darcula theme
  • handy hotkeys
  • beautiful markdown highlighting
  • full linux support :D
  • notes history
  • backup in multiple places
  • ability to open notes in text editor, e.g. Sublime
  • all the IDE power at my fingertips:
    • search files or in files, or in directory, or in search results - Regex, match case, file mask, group results...
    • notes structured into directories
    • code highlighting
    • running snippets or even ansible scripts to setup whole system
    • recording macroses,
    • using variety of plugins...

Thank you so much Evernote, I don't know how I lived without all this

I'm always on the computer, and having to deal with a pure white background irritates my eyes. Sometimes if I really want to write a lot of stuff, I'll just open some other writing software with a dark theme and copy/paste the text to Evernote just so I don't have to deal with that overwhelming brightness xD

Love this app, but I find a dark theme will make it perfect for me. Thanks for taking your time to read :)

Very funny :lol:

Only the CEO answered on twitter with following words: "Working on it :-)" 

This was on October 30th. Now, more than a month after his tweet, nothing changed. Like, is it that hard to add a few lines in your software? I guess, it would take about 30-40 minutes to create a dark theme.

Don't they have developers? Or are they just so bad ;)

No idea.  But Evernote never (usually) say what they might be working on,  or whether or not they will schedule some work for the future.  They just delivered two new Mac and Windows versions,  squashing at least some of the ongoing bugs,  so I guess they've been pretty busy - and I do prefer that they fix the bugs in preference to making things look pretty. 

Appreciate this is a vital issue to some,  but even 74 users (the current vote) against 220M overall is not exactly a majority...  It's not a democracy,  so we just have to wait - or go see what else there is in the market...

to:

    color: gray;
    font-size: 20px;

Wow the first post was in 2013! I sure hope that this request is being taken seriously. 

I would like to see more "coloring" options overall like Google Keep does. There are some notes I would like to stick out when I do a search. The coloring of the tags and notebooks definitely helped but it was not a solution for me.

Dark theme along with ability to color code notes would be really nice for me.

It's been a few years now, since someone made the suggestion to implement a dark theme in Evernote for Android/iOS/WebOS.

I don't know why it's taking so long or respectively, why it isn't possible for the Devs to even make one! Is it really that hard? We're near to 2018 and Evernote - one of the famoust Note Apps - still have only the "eye-burning-white-theme-at-night". Like for real: I'm not just working on Evernote during the day, I also have ideas at night, which I want to write down on my Evernote. But it's so hard then, to keep my eyes open with this awfull white theme.

So come on: I'm an Plus User, so I'm paying you guys money! Such as many many other people!

Please have the time and think about a night mode feature in your app! It's not that hard.

I'd really like this feature as well.  For now, to get a full screen, non-distracting, non-eye-straining experience, I have to use a seperate app.  Two I'd reccommend: OmmWriter & FocusWriter.

BUT, I DO have a SHORT-TERM FIX if you want to stay in Evernote:
Create a keyboard shortcut for the "Invert Colors" option on your mac (Accessibility->Display->"Invert Colors").  You do this by going to Keyboard->Shortcuts->Accessibility->Invert Colors and choosing a keycombo.

Here's an example (funny note -I couldn't screenshot what it looked like in inverse mode, so had to take a photo from my iphone.)

Last time I checked from an iPhone I was borrowing, Evernote IOS had a dark theme.  Now that I just bought my own iPad mini, among several reasons in part to have Evernote with dark theme, I am finding it is not there anymore.  Another forum on this site suggests it had a dark theme until relatively recently, what's up with that? 

If what I am saying is actually correct, it almost seems deliberate, across the different platforms.

Anyone care to shed some light on this issue?

Thanks, though that is what I have been doing so far already.  The problem is that most of my other apps have built in dark themes, and one of them has annotations, underlines and highlights that were entered while using its in-app dark mode (visible across Windows, Android and IOS, same app with synced data) which means they are invisible in normal mode, so the IOS in dark mode is a bit inconvenient because of this.

The Tusk third party client does look interesting. Though appears to be a web wrapper, so I don't think there is annotate PDF/PPTX support (these are why I pay for Evernote Premium), and having to switch between clients to do those things will defeat the purpose of "stick it all in Evernote"

I use Sunsetscreen when I really want night mode no matter what, not often because it inverts the entire screen for all programs, but it has a handy feature that improves contrast and diminishes the brightness of whites somewhat.

Interesting.  I just tried it by pasting my home page into a new note, it seems an imperfect solution, because when I select the background color, the foreground colors changes as well, including the color of links, so not great, but it is something I guess. 

After playing with it some more, I realize that about 20-30%  (depending on your device) of the screen remains white, plus the black background is more like dark grey, so I guess I will try other ideas for now, thanks for this one.

With visual problems myself and a family with Irlen syndrome we struggle to read black text on a white background. I often have to make notes at night and I've stopped using Evernote and make notes in other apps because I can only see light text against a dark background. Allowing a dark theme setting that just has negative colour settings programmed should work with the Evernote logo and branding. To not provide that does feel like it's blocking accessibility for visually impaired people. I' be so pleased if you would develop that for us a d it'd be pretty as well.

I've been following this for the past five years. I used to use Evernote, but when I saw zero development on this front, I left them. So, now it's been several years since last I checked an still unable to have a dark background?

I would be a paying customer if they allow a dark background with some nice text editing features like syntax highlighting and multi-line select. Sublime Text has set the standard for text editing and viewing. Evernote has set the standard for search. But, I can just be more organized with my notes and use a far superior note engine like sublime. I think Evernote could tap into a very large market of avid note-takers if they would only improve their interface so it's easier on the eyes and easier to edit and view text. I'll be waiting on the sidelines until then, unless another company steps up.

I'm a fan of using external dedicated editors that provide the features I need.  Any format that can be stored in a note.

I'm not a Sublime user, but my impression is it's more a technical product for programmers.
From a business background, I use MS-Word/Apple-Pages and MS-Excel/Apple-Numbers.

I'm more interested in Evernote for data storage/retrieval.  The editor is useful for basic notes.

Premium user also chiming in regarding a dark mode. As somebody who uses the "Dark Reader extension" and also has Visual Studio running Dark mode, and Sublime - at this point all modern IDE/editors really should support a dark-type theme. Forced white background on every note is really jarring. What's frustrating is that Evernote *ALREADY* supports a kind of dark mode.... but only in Presentation Mode. So the functionality is already there, it's just a matter of integrating it into the main editor.

The first post under this topic is from 2013, so it is a pretty safe bet they have no intention of listening to their customers on this issue, aside from the fact they appear to have removed it from iOS which apparently had it before.

Dark Mode is a dramatic new look that helps you focus on your work. The subtle colors and fine points of your content take center screen as toolbars and menus recede into the background. Switch it on in System Preferences to create a beautiful, distraction-free working environment that’s easy on the eyes — in every way. Dark Mode works with built-in apps that come with your Mac, and third-party apps can adopt it, too.

Thanks.

Agreed, many companies are just pumping out code and not paying attention to what their customer base wants or needs or is even just requesting an option for.

In light of this, our monetary support is what makes the largest impact on any company selling a product.

Windows 10 had long been adding dark mode to their apps, and so do many iOS apps, that's definitely the trend. EN just didn't give a damn about it, seems they are busy promoting their Business product. I won't expect too much from EN, given how old this thread is.

A dark mode is sorely needed for Evernote. For any app that you have to spend a lot of time in, you should be offered a dark mode. Personally I'm affected by bright light, causes me ocular migraines.

In order to use Evernote in dark mode, I'm restricted to using the web version of Evernote only, using the "dark reader" browser extension (chrome and firefox can get it). Looks great and is very functional BTW, I just wish I could get something like it for the desktop app as web's obviously useless when there's no Internet.

Androids are known to lose power in the battery quite fast...

On devices using OLED displays (or a variant thereof), right?,

I do vote for that, but I also want the coloured headers from Evernote Android app v4.x, as I hate the boring white interface of 5.x (hence me not upgrading to Android 8.x, and also why I don't use iOS), so I backed up the v4.x APK from my tablet, installed that on my phone for the time being, and disabled Play Store auto-updates on my tablet and phone.

So, if the developers listen, there could be 3 options in the app settings under "Theme" (not actual names of each option):

  • Boring white interface (a la iOS) (default)
  • Classic colourful interface (a la Evernote Android app v4.x)
  • Dark mode

The reason why I prefer the colourful interface, is because it allowed me to tell the difference between all notes, notebooks, and actual notes. (Tweet for context)

For an additional use case: 

I am a writer - fiction / non-fiction / blog.

I use Evernote PREMIUM on Mac desktop, Firefox browser, iPad, & iPhone. 

I want to maximize my Evernote usage by creating folders of drafts and notes to aid in composing my novels (in addition to multiple research clippings). 

HOWEVER, I cannot use a program with a white background for any sustained period of time (migraine triggers).  Evernote's current default WHITE screen prevents me from being able to use this program as I would like.

MY FUNCTIONALITY REQUEST:

0- Create a 'composition mode' default setting which includes the following:
1- Choose a default 'composition mode' background color from the color picker.
2- Choose a default 'composition mode' text color from the color picker.
3- Designate a 'composition mode' font choice that does not affect fonts of clipped articles or documents.
4- Designate a 'composition mode' font size (that is different from default print size) for view and compose actions.
4b- And/OR designate a screen view that allows a percentage magnification of active notes.

EXTRA:
** - Have a choice of skins for the app as a whole - particularly when using non-web desktop version.  Example programs are Scrivener; Gmail. I'm sure there are others.

Thank you for your consideration.

Additional comment:

Evernote is currently highly focused on their business collaboration functionality.  Those users work in a number of different environments and customization of composition mode would help them be more productive.  In addition, that user group would be a great population for beta testing this functionality for a quick implementation cycle.

I use note/journal apps that give me a dark mode or theme to reduce eye strain. This use has been increasing as more apps offer this for Android smartphones.

I consider such programmers as humanitarian by their offering such eye relief as a basic feature. There is research showing visual impairment from smartphone use and suggested help to include using dark screen modes.

It is also helpful for middle of the night wake-up note writing.

I refer Evernote less for lack of this feature. (PM if curious what I now recommend.)

My eyes need an Evernote with a dark (or night) mode.

Evernote will eventually offer this for Android, I just hope it is sooner than later.

Ctrl V Paste for snipping tool images - A MUST Have

So today.. I paid for 1 year of Premium, Thank you!

10 mins later:
It's disappointing to not be able edit the UI, via, say, settings. I have to spend 15 mins to work out how to hack it...

+1000 for a dark UI. MY EYES ARE IMPORTANT.
Use visual studio code as an ideal UI/UX example.

Hello, "Im a Developer."   If you do manage to find a way to hack the UI more completely than what's presented in this post, please share your results.  Many eyes will thank you!

Pleas Evernote, make this happen. Evernote is the biggest drain of my AMOLED screen, having a black background with white text would be perfect.

5 years after...

Please... this bright theme is a nightmare... It hurt our eyes. But this is also a huge battery killers and a warm generator on our screen...  This is really unconfortable by the hot seasons... Writing on evernote in a closed 35 degres room is like being in front of an oven.

There is an open source solution that uses the web interface, but it is a software: Tusk

How I found it: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/tusk-is-a-free-evernote-client-for-windows

Official website : https://klauscfhq.github.io/tusk/

Download : https://github.com/klauscfhq/tusk/releases/tag/v0.11.0

 

You have to like the web interface, personally I prefer the Evernote's desktop client interface, but at least there are dark themes.

A precision, during the installation under Windows, there is no shortcut creation. Tusk is installed in C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\tusk\ 

So you need to create a shortcut to the.exe file on the desktop or pin it to the taskbar.

Huge step backword with all white IOS version of Evernote.  Dark theme lost!  All white may look good in design meeting but on a day to day basic it is a huge eye strain. 

Even Microsoft has a dark theme for Office now.  Get with it Evernote.

Have users been asking for a dark theme for 5 years?!? And no one at Evernote has taken the time to remedy this relatively easy to fix request?

Wow, that's complacency!

Are they going about their own goals, not caring about their paying users?

Hi All,

You may have noticed that all threads requesting Dark Mode have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity. 

This was done in order to better enable us to quantify and qualify user requests, and amplify their voice.

While this does not mean this is a feature that will be coming, we certainly want to relay user feedback/sentiment to our various teams.

Moving forward, please put all commentary and votes for Dark Mode here!

Thanks Shane.

There's something to report. At the beginning of this topic, there were no votes. However, since 2013, many have given up (for this reason or other) and have never voted.

Is there a way to set a default of dark background and light text for all new notes?

Is there a quick way of resetting all the current notes in all folders to have a dark background and light text?

Everyone, please remember to click the up-arrow at the top of this "dark theme" thread/request to up-vote it if you haven't already.

The reality is --- i've found ways around the lack of dark theme -- first of all, I use multiple rigs and often four or more monitors in my setup. I will regularly dedicate one monitor to evernote and use it on the lowest brightness / contrast settings so that i can follow my notes and continue my work. The other way I find away around this absurd program is through simply changing the opacity of the program itself -- for instance by using Display Fusion, I take the opacity setting of the window and I set it to say 40% and it would appear like so:

Thanks for sharing.  I downloaded it to try.  I am not sure this is much different than a screen dimmer, beside the multi monitor functionality and the transparency feature. 

From the picture I assumed the result would be more readable, but it kinda looks about the same as a program like CareuEyes or Sunsetscreen, at least on my computer. Got 30 days to try it out though, we'll see.

I don't totally agree. I want this dark theme too, but it's not just a dark/black background for notes. I would be curious to know the percentage of people who only use Evernote to clip web pages. However, I think that's where the difficulty lies, not just for notes. If you look at the competition (OneNote) there is no dark theme either. If you register a web page, you can then change the page color AFTER (with more options for the UWP App than for the desktop version), but by default the page is white.

In my opinion, it's too complex, too many parameters and they don't want to get bored with it.

Well, I wanted an easier solution to have something Not glaring in my face and someone else mentioned "Notion Workspace" and OMG, it works in the browser, android, ios and I've got it installed on my Windows desktop now too.. And, it's got easy Dark Mode choice as well as themes .. I'm so happy right now.! > https://www.notion.so/  Have a look and see what you think. It's not from them here but, after literally years of waiting.. I'm using something else now.

Moving forward! Clipper currently has the dark theme, thank you Evernote!

And ? 

It doesn't darken the pages, it's the clipper that is dark or not, probably a joke from EN.
