Feedback and Requests on cosmetic changes in beta

I'm a habitual Cronometer user. I log everything everyday and closely monitor my micro-nutrients so am firing up Cronometer 20+ times on either tablet or phone daily. I'll use web site if I'm already on computer. Have some requests and suggestions.

First, I have officially log my dislike of the new color scheme, fonts, and layout. Ugh, please consider adding a theme option for gold members so we can elect the classic theme vs. this new one. Particular complaints (my personal opinion of course):


New Beta:

  1. Where is the bold green and orange colors that I immediately associate w/Cronometer? I get the material theme but the new scheme is shades of grey and lifeless
  2. The color intensity is so much duller in new scheme
  3. The pictures, graphics and buttons are so flat and lifeless too, like an old VB6 app from 90's.
  4. The font is smaller and lighter so harder to read
  5. There way too much white-space everywhere so even with smaller font, you can see less information on the screen vertically!
  6. The alternating light grey striping is too light in new scheme to help


  • I agree. I'd welcome a dark theme, too.

  • A true dark or black theme that took advantage of OLED battery savings would be great. I do enable dark mode for any apps that support it.

  • Dark mode would be welcome and Google is pushing for dark modes in pie. But I still want my "classic"green and orange Cronometer theme.

  • I agree.
    1. Definitely not the best font, hard to read.
    2. The shadowing on the top banner is distracting.
    3. Like the new food icons.
    4. The lines on the pie charts, possible too thin.
    5. Not sure about dark mode, not always my selection but would be a welcome option.

  • I've been enjoying the new theme and UI elements. I think it's cleaner and easier to read, as well as adhering more to Android design standards. It's a personal thing though, what we perceive as pleasant or not.

    +1 on a dark mode, think it'd go rather well with the Cronometer orange.

  • Honestly, I'm very surprised there is no dark theme. It seems like a must have for most apps.
