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.


1Password - Popular password management app 1Password is introducing support for Dark Mode with a new darker theme that blends right into the macOS Mojave operating system.


1Password's new update also includes a Safari App Extension to make it easier to input 1Password info into Safari webpages, it features a hardened runtime to make it so other processes on your computer can't access it, and it's been notarized with the new notary service in macOS Mojave that Apple introduced to make apps more secure.


Banktivity - Personal finance management app Banktivity, priced at $70 for new customers and $34.99 for those upgrading, is getting an update that adds support for macOS Mojave's Dark Mode. Version 7 of the app also includes expanded search features, summary view customization options, lot selection, improved envelope budgeting, calendar support, and more.


Things 3 - Popular todo app Things 3 for Mac is gaining Dark Mode support for macOS Mojave, and it will automatically change between light and dark based on a user's system setting in the Mojave operating system, but there are custom controls as well. The new dark theme is also available for Things customers running older versions of macOS.


OmniFocus 3 - Task management app OmniFocus, priced at $39.99 or $79.99 for the Pro version, is getting a major update today, which introduces version 3. The updated app has a redesigned, modernized interface that will feel familiar but fresh to OmniFocus 2 users. It includes tags for better organization, a forecast view to see tasks and calendar events in order, and enhanced repeating tasks. OmniFocus implemented a dark mode a few years back and it works great with macOS Mojave.


Agenda - Note taking app Agenda has added a new dark theme for macOS Mojave, and it's been designed to activate when you have your Mac set to Mojave's Dark Mode. The updated Agenda app has been designed to use the look and feel of the Mojave Dark Mode interface while retaining the clean, modern style of the Agenda app. The new darker theme is also available in Agenda for older versions of macOS.


Transmit - Panic's Transmit 5 app for file transfers has been updated with a new dark theme that matches the Dark Mode in macOS Mojave.


Fantastical for Mac - Popular calendar app Fantastical for Mac has been updated with support for macOS Mojave's Dark Mode. There's no new look to the app, but the built-in dark theme is activated whenever Dark Mode is turned on in Mojave.

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.

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.

...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 :-(

Now I just need a dark iMac that doesn't cost $5000. I don't need a Xeon processor for my mundane task of browsing macrumors.com.

As a musician who uses Logic and a bunch of 3rd party music Apps, I have to wait to get all these cool features. Updating to a new MacOS routinely breaks 3rd party app integration in Logic. And it ends up costing $$ to upgrade when they finally catch up. So sadly, gonna have to wait awhile for the dust to settle before I can bite on this release. For once I actually think this OS is actually worth it too. Ah well....1st world problems. ;)
