    Hey @David Y., thanks for the update.

    I have a recommendation: Implementation of the Dark Mode in the community app, just like OnePlus has on their devices This might even help to save a bit of battery life as AMOLED screens are used on a lot of modern devices.

    Also, I have a feedback: The notifications which are opened/seen still shows us that they're unopened. This is the issue some of the users have noticed in the initial usage of the app. And it's still there Hope that your team would fix it soon

    It has been full since a long time. I tried getting in to the beta program when I started using the app, but it was full :(

    I love the revamp. Totally fresh look, and i'll be happy if search works again as it was originally intended to. I do have some feedback though.

    The implementation of dark mode would help a lot with battery, and lets face it - we all could use a bit more of that.

    Also, the notifications tab is pretty much useless with the huge text size. You cant see the threads that they refer to.

    My thoughts on the app so far:
    In my opinion, the app doesn't solve much of the issues it has. I get that it is still in development, but design wise, would've been nice if it followed Google News v5.0(with black instead of white :3).
    The top bar shouldn't always be visible, only when you swipe down(scroll up).
    The functions(quotes, edits, etc.) are yet to be fixed, the new design is perhaps more complex, but that varies from person to person. The biggest issue is that it's still very easy to create threads, while the search button is not as pronounced.
    It's great that the app is being worked on, but I feel it's being worked on the things that weren't broken in the first place.

    Yes. The goal of this "UEP" is to better understand what feature users use most and what doesn't, how the touch heatmap looks, to help us make this app better. It's totally okay to choose the "No, thanks" button.
