Remember about five years ago when the sound of the plastic screen covering being pulled off a new phone would send people into orgasmic waves of pleasure. These days, that sound no longer has the same ability to excite smartphone fanatics. Instead, there are two words that seem to do the same thing, "dark mode." Whenever an app adds an option allowing the user to switch to "dark mode," those who have installed the app are so intent on using the new feature that they simply cannot wait for it to arrive.
All dark mode does is switch an app from having a white background ...

Fortnite v5.21 Brings New Modes & Sniper Rifle To Android

1 month ago   |   By Android Headlines

Epic Games' hit game Fortnite has been updated to version 5.21, and players can expect a couple of new time-limited modes for Battle Royale, along with a new weapon, the Heavy Sniper Rifle.

The next version of Android Messages brings an updated look, and more importantly, the ability to change to dark mode. The interface is a little bit cleaner and strips out some of the color and dull gray backgrounds in favor of a whole lot of white.
