Multiple Mac Apps Updated With Support for macOS Mojave's Dark Mode and Other New Features

With the release of macOS Mojave today, third-party Mac app developers are releasing updates to take advantage of features like Dark Mode and other new Mojave additions.

Dark Mode options in third-party apps will let them blend right in to Mojave's new Dark Mode, which is a systemwide dark theme that can be used in lieu of the traditional light mode theme. We've rounded up a list of prominent apps that are embracing macOS Mojave's new features.

Prefer "light mode" to be honest, not a fan of this dark stuff at all - white text on a black/dark background is a no from me, just looks weird.

...If only MS Office supported Dark Mode - but Microsoft seems even unable (or unwilling?) to give it the dark theme its Windows version has enjoyed for awhile :-(

Dark mode needs a green font option. I have Terminal and Thunderbird setup to display in black background with green font. Gives you a retro feel for the old green monochrome days.

I even had a default Apple II era font setup in some programs. I should set that up again.

I do wonder why an OS dark mode took so long? It is so much easier on the eyes.
