Natural process?
Do you believe in uniformity instead of diversity?
If I had apps looking all the same style it would be sad.... and boring. So please stay with your own design.

If I could choose, I would stay with the old design. First, I find it elegant, second if it is not broken don't fix it. But it's only me. :-)

Current design (old) - Holo from Android 4.0 + modifications

New design - Material + modifications

I never said that I wants to looks exactly same as all other apps. But new options in Android 5 offers few very interesting improvements and in 3.5.3 version I wasn't able to use it because of my too much complicated modifications. Beta version is now completely switched to new system and I believe, that changes aren't so visible :) (which was point)

And btw. I have uniformity!

May be I misunderstood.  Expecting whole new design adapted from A5. ..

I have seen it in more apps that one could change between light and dark theme. (I guess that it should be a built-in thing) Is that possible in Locus as well?

@balloni: thanks, I'll check it today

@Christian: sorry, I wrote "have"? ... I meant "hate" ;D

And really do not worry, I'll try to adapt some nice changes in Android L, but I also wants to keep Locus as unique as possible. For example, I was playing for some time with new styles of dialogs - http://www.google.com/design/spec/components/dialogs.html# . I tried to change style of dialogs in Locus to this new style, but after some testing, it was so unfriendly, I was missing top right cross (close button) so much, that I immediately return back to old good style of dialogs and I'm sure it will remain in this way :)

@szebenyib: it was not possible till now. Now it should be easier to do it then before - http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/support_amoled

Voted, thanks! :-)
(Well, that topic does not really match it's title, if it were renamed to 'support a dark theme' maybe it could receive more votes.)

I was thinking about it, and how about just changing the blue color that is visible all around to something that looks the same as the color in the previous versions?

current blue color is very close to previous blue color. Only bigger difference in coloring is that top title bars are not grey as before (black, white strides) , but also blue

Hi menion,
the new menus are very bad to read (especially outdoor):

hmm so you think darker texts should help? I'll check if it's globally possible to set different colors to texts, thanks.

And to all - has anyone AndroidPIT AppCenter APK application? I forget to keep last working version and it is not possible to download on their site now, damn. Thanks

I've fight with text colors for a whole day yesterday, but seems it will be OK in next version. I had in Locus quite complicated system for all theme settings, but it should be solved now. Thanks (maybe color still won't be ideal, so feel free to post screenshot with suggestion after test of next beta).

Also please excuse me on next two days. I'll be in office :). Little bit funny. We have new office in center of Prague and there is still no internet connection. So I'll be there for two days now, so in office, but out of internet. See you in the evening or thursday!

Uhh, new head quarter! A glass palace i guess. The longest and biggest cable for internet connection to the 225th floor has to be produced at first. ;)
Congratulations for new office!
