    Yup, Evernote is just another app for Android to get a Dark Mode (called "Dark Theme" this time), which many of us truly love, and even Google admitted that dark themes can improve battery life with up to 60%. This time around this is just a different color scheme implementation, with no additional design tweaks. The background of the main page has a darker tone of gray, while other pages and pop-up menus opt in for a lighter shade of gray, thus making it easier to tell things apart. Just enter the left side panel to toggle this feature on.

    Changelog:

    • You asked for a dark mode in Evernote, and it’s finally here! Welcome to the dark side — lightsabers not included.

    Feedly for Android is one of the more popular RSS news reader applications, and in its latest beta v51 release on Google Play it gets a full interface redesign. This new UI is, to an extent, inspired by Google's Material Theming used in their products and customized to the punch to better represent Feedly's brand image and keep it unique.

    As a result of the changes in the update we mentioned above, there is a new bottom navigation bar inside the app, with five options to choose from - Menu, Read Later, Today, Discover, and Power Search. Included are sleek new icons and Night Mode, which is great for your phone's battery life. You can easily enable it by tapping on the menu key in the bottom bar and selecting 'Night Mode' from the side panel, which opens afterward.

    Microsoft's Cortana voice assistant on Android has always been very cluttered and not straightforward in regards to usability and functions. The newest iteration, which comes as an official upgrade to version 3.0 aims to change this and make the user experience leaps better. And it sort of does. It is indeed smarter too.

    Signal Messenger's whole design philosophy from the ground up is focused around taking privacy and security at a top notch level and to collect as little user data as possible. It had already omitted storing information like user avatars, profile names, contacts, and a dozen more. Its next move, and probably with a much better protection for spam and abuse, is hiding who is messaging whom, which comes to beta tester in the form of version 4.30.5 and 4.30.6. Below is the changelog, applicable for both.

    Changelog:

    ★ Support for "sealed sender" messages

    ★ We updated the built-in emoji set and added support for "Fitzpatrick" customization.

    The new Messenger redesign, known as Messenger 4, has just started rolling out to everyone, but unfortunately, it had been switching back for some. Actually, a lot of users on the Internet are reporting that on their Android devices Messenger has already reverted to the old interface for an unknown reason. It apparently happens because of a bug, or the rollout was not planned for this large of an audience, but it should come back soon enough.

    Features in testing

    • Selfie Mode

    Facebook Messenger is testing Selfie Mode, which is the same as Portrait Mode that is shipping on many smartphones released in the past two, or three years. This mode does two things - Skin Softening and adds a Bokeh blur effect.
