GoodTask provides various themes that can be matched with user’s taste. This page will describe mostly about themes on iOS version. (macOS version supports basic default and dark themes)
There are system supported themes and user generated themes. You can make your own theme or import themes that other users made.
You can also check this YouTube video for details.
Themes can be automatically switched following system settings or by time or screen brightness. Default option will follow system light/dark mode settings. You can specify theme for each and it’ll change automatically.
With time option selected, you can set up to 5 time ranges that will automatically switch to selected theme. For example, you can set 9pm to 7am for Dark theme. As you open the app, if the time is in that range, GoodTask will run with Dark theme. If not, default theme will be selected.
With screen brightness selected, theme will change according to current screen brightness. You set up a range between 0~100 and when it goes to that range, theme that you selected will be shown.
