Dark widgets invade v1.2.5 of the Android Central App


Oh good, a fix for the log-in bug. I'm not big on dark themes, but that's why we have a choice, right?

My hat's off to the dev. Good work, sir! (The dev is a guy, right? I think I remember that right, but please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Nice job. I haven't experienced any issues, but if you found some and squashed them, kudos!

AC's attentiveness to what people are asking for and their quick turn around for implementing it in the app is really impressing me.

+1. The old 2x2 widget with 4-5 headlines was perfect for having on the home screen with my other top apps/widgets. Making it scrollable would be the icing on the proverbial cake. Great job overall though!

This new widget is gorgeous. I always use dark everything and this is the final dark widget I needed! Thanks!

Nice, I finally was able to uninstall and get rid of the old AC Widget 1.4 and install the AC app. This is very sleek. Great work!
