    Currently, it's available only in Desktop apps.
    It will be added to the web version together with other updates.

    Oh, I think I saw that! It's not a full dark mode yet, I'm hoping we will have 100% dark background theme soon. Thanks!

    No, it is 100% Dark Mode:)
    In the web version, there is a mode which is called "dark" but it is not. But in the Desktop versions, they added a real Dark Mode.
    Please have a look:

    Is that beta software? I went to the Nirvana website and couldn't find anything about a desktop version.

    Yes, this is beta but very stable. Basically as stable as the web version is.

    Awesome! I had version 3.2.8 installed (from an e-mail Nirvana sent me a while ago). I think I missed the newest version. Thanks for the link! That's the dark mode I was looking for :)

    I hope nobody will be offended by my new idea. :D Here's BLACKANA - the best black mode competitor to Asana, Nirvana, OmniFocus, Nozbe and Todoist. You can have million things to do but BLACKANA always displays this beautiful black screen. You're done. Relax! @mcogilvie ;)

    Perfect. It always responds totally appropriately to whatever you throw at it. We’ve gone way beyond “mind like water” now and have arrived at “mind like black hole.” It takes in everything, and spits out Hawking radiation.

    I like the dark interface because it's more legible. I think Nirvana's implementation of GTD is the most faithful to the methodology of any software I've tried, but the interface could use work. The dark mode is a step in the right direction.

    I hope someone at the company considers hiring a UI consultant. The program has some great features, but like I said the UI leaves a fair amount to be desired.

    Mind you, I'm still happy enough with Nirvana to stick with it for the time being. I like it better than anything else I've tried so far.

    I find this so odd. For me the biggest advantage of modern computers vs the old CRTs I started on is the black text on a light background. So much more readable and less eye strain. I can't even function with dark mode in apps. I remember there were studies that showed light background and dark text is more healthy for your eyes as well as easier to read for most people.

    Normally I prefer dark text on light screen. Unfortunately, in light mode some of Nirvana's icons lack contrast against the white background and are hard to see.

    Like I said, the company could really use the services of a UIX consultant.
