Have you upgraded to macOS Mojave?

    I was also super excited for the dark mode but now I am really disappointed about how it actually looks. It seems more like a 'color-invert mode'. But making a dark-colored UI needs more than just making the background black and the fonts white (talking to you Mail-App). I mean you could probably see this coming as Apple has kind of lost its ❤️ for the details in a lot of areas…

    But where is the $ going? I've read a review by The Verge this morning and they say Apple is secretly working on a totally new and evolutionary iOS+MacOS and therefore letting things down for current OSes.

      Specially the Mail-app. Looks so weird... maybe it just takes time to get used. But as they say "UI is like a joke, if you have to explain it isn't a good one"

      I use Bear for taking notes and it had a Dark Mode already, which fits nicely with Mojave Dark Mode.

      Windows ahead of the curve again, why does this keep happening.

        I guess it's a route towards everything ** touch**.

        Still … Smaller companies put so much more love in their Apps and Visuals, just because they are young and hungry. The self-celebrating trillion dollar company Apple, once different, is now an old, rich man with a heart-sensor and needs a complete new generation of executives.

        I feel like the issue for Microsoft is that they are afraid of going all in on good ideas, even though they will jump the gun on shipping them. They don't seem to get that to win you will have to lose for a few years and just build on those failures. Windows 8 was a step too far but then they got commitment phobia after it, at the end of the day it was a GREAT tablet OS, had they shipped it as that.

        Being ahead of the curve on this didn't really matter though, Apple has the giant high quality app store. MS welll... yeah.

        The Apple implementation is more like ChromeOS's Android support however.

        Just this WWDC they specifically pronounced that they won't merge both systems.

      There's a project called Marzipan in the works to allow iOS apps to be easily ported to macOS, but they're definitely not trying to merge the two operating systems.
