What's New

The biggest feature of this release is a new design for reading in low light. When enabled, the colors invert to a pleasing dark grey hue with white text, which makes for less eye strain and less ambient light. To enable it, hit the Settings gear and switch to Dark Mode. You can also enable it to switch automatically, which turns it on when your system brightness goes below 25% and turns it off when your system brightness returns to normal levels.

Join us on January 20th for full coverage of the next President's swearing-in ceremony. We'll be reporting all day and providing live video and running analysis, so we look forward to seeing you there!

We improved the smoothness of automatic logins from our other apps, made section fronts load faster and look better with automatic text wrapping, and fixed a nice pile of bugs along the way.

We hope you enjoy dark mode as much as we enjoyed making it. If you have any questions or comments, let us know at
