On my phone it is actually worse then shown in the attachment. Can we please have a lighter grey here?

hi. this is more problem of your device then Locus. Aren't you using some atypical ROM with own skin?

You should see this dark spinners in other system apps as well. They'll anyway have probably white texts. To make it clear - android by default offer two themes. Dark (used by default - white texts on black) and Light (optional - opposite to dark). Locus use light theme and as I discovered during an development, light theme sometimes cause troubles.

So let me please know, what ROM are you using. If you use original ROM, I'll try to do something with it (it will probably need some more work so I cannot promise, it will be quick)

i know this problem
My tablet with Android 3.x had the same problem (with other apps too)
The best solution is to update to ICS (if its possible)

1. Bone stock Android 2.2 (since a week but I had this also with Android 2.1)
2. No higher upgrade possible for a Defy
3. It seems better elsewhere see attachment Parking

In Parking the active buttons are deeper grey, close to black with white text (Like the "set" button). MapCenter is in a lighter grey not active field.

In the import/export screens the darker grey bar with black text like "Category field name" is active as is the little white triangle next to it.

This does not seem consistent.

As you can see in the system screen Battery stats only the lowest bar is darker and not active.

Thanks Berkley but I prefer official ROM's.

Within Locus do you see the same greytone differences?
