Dark Mode for Quicken Mobile

edited October 10 in Ideas for Mobile
I'm not really understanding why the mobile and web apps don't have really any settings, least of all the ability the enable a dark mode. According to a recent study, 81.9% of people use dark mode on their phones.

    Because Quicken Mac was rewritten (actually a couple of times) and as such is basically coded in one main API.  Whereas Quicken Windows is a mix of years of different APIs and those APIs were never designed to switch colors easily.  Bottom line is it is an extremely hard thing to do in Quicken Windows.

    In my opinion there isn't really any excuse for them not having dark mode on Quicken Mobile.  By definition it is one of the newer APIs that make supporting it a lot easier.  (My above comment was about Quicken Windows which is a completely different story).

    Mac is so much easier to use in dark mode. I want to use Windows. Help!

    I agree that Quicken needs a dark mode capability. Also, the ability to change font sizes (other than the register).

    Quicken is functionally fine but starting to look a little dated.

    I would really love dark mode on the mobile app. I use it all the time, often late at night and the Quicken mobile app is blinding white compared to everything else when my phone is in dark mode.
