Pinterest Dark Mode

Nearly a year ago, Pinterest announced that they were working seriously on improving their mobile website due to serious outrage from their users. People were complaining that the UI of their mobile website is seriously awful.
Like many smart companies, Pinterest took the feedback by heart and made some significant changes the way their mobile website feels, looks and works.

As a side “feature” to the new mobile web experience came the “night mode”.

Although it looks crisp, we are sad to see that it hasn’t been implemented on the desktop, nor the mobile apps (iOS and Android). It is understandable that bringing night mode can take up resources both in terms of human power and money, but the company made the first move. Why stop there? :)

Why Should You Enable Pinterest Dark Mode?

Better eye protection

We are constantly spending more time in front of screens, and it affects our eyes negatively. One of the means to protect your eyes is to enable dark mode whenever possible. For example, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit offer built-in dark mode for their websites and mobile apps.

Besides the dark mode, you remove the blue light by enabling Night Shift (macOS and iOS) and Night Light (Windows). Although you can remove the blue light emitted by the screen, Google Calendar does not offer dark UI, which will take some toll on your eyes. Switching to Apple Calendar (it has an awesome dark theme) is often not an option due to its availability and, more importantly, due to lack of features.

Consistency

If you already have enabled the dark mode offered by macOS Mojave and Windows 10, shocking your eyes with a bright white screen might not be so fun.

Looks cool

It simply looks cool. We see a huge spike in people's interest in dark themes, which has already become a norm.
