    OK - solved - I Googled Tapatalk to try to get a new download link -got one -updated my App- and voila - a rich black screen which is real class- I'd think my app store update ( like many) got caught enroute in the Bermuda Triangle . I'm now showing version 8.3.5......

    I checked the native iMore Forums App - it hasn't been updated in iOS app store for more than a year & it remains 'sort of dark chocolate' when 'Night Reading' mode is selected. I hardly use it though and have relegated it to a folder of backups & workarounds and it's on Wifi only as opposed to my usual use of Tapatalk for entry to my forums... I just 'grin & bear it' with the 'kin stuff' which gets presented from time to time. I thought I'd inhibited it ( do not show.......) but apparently not so. Haven't lost a snore in my sleep over it though

    It looks kinda gray brown to me.
    Humm, well it's a dark mode on my OLED Xs Max screen...Definitely not a gray brown on my iPhone.

    No OLED, No Beta, but I got the black screen by updating Tapatalk, although I had to do it 'back-door' as my App-Store, though set to auto-update, hadn't yet. But this isn't unusual here in coconut country.

    I’ve been using the Tapatalk Pro version with the brownish gray dark mode. I just downloaded this new update and I like the black dark mode much better.

    What is the difference between the pro version and the “original” versions anyway?

    Pro version has less options and features and gets updated far less often now.

    So the notifications on this version is grayed out. I’m not able to change anything here.

    When I updated the app this morning, it went from a dark brown to a definite black!

    I've seen ads on other forums in the past. But not on iMore. There may be now. I see this about ads on iMore. I think ads depends on how the forum does the plug in. TapaTalk may have their own. This is what I see with ad block enabled. It opens up, then closes. But no actual ad.

    Ok Thanks. I just downloaded this version this morning, I came from the pro version. I thought at one time Tapatalk had ads. That was one of my reasons for getting the pro version years ago.

    Pro is an app. VIP is not an app. VIP is just a few perks, like no ads, that the Pro app has.

    Right, so I don’t want ads I should just upgrade to VIP in the regular app? Does Pro have ads?

    I hate to share this because Im feeling like an oblivious dolt, and while I don’t use Tapatalk that often, I don’t notice many advertisements at all.

    I’ve had VIP for several years. No ads in either Pro or the regular app.

    I hardly if ever see ads on Tapatalk ( the standard version). I do use 1Blocker and AdGuard Pro however....

    I just received an email to beta test version 8.3.5 (2357). Which is the latest official version. Huh?

    I have 8.3.5 , but I had to Google Tapatalk to get the download. The iOS. App Store at that time was showing 8.3.2. I have auto update enables but it hasn't aa yet done so ( early last week) but once I found a Web link I was able to download & install...The link I googled did not mention 'beta' however what I downloaded works well. It was the controversy about dark vs black colour in app which had me curious.

    Many of the notifications for testing come late. I get them sometimes hours after I have updated. Sometimes the next day. That's Apple not getting them out in a timely manner.

    The beta version and app store version are the same now.
