Update: UX color scheme


UPDATE: Please see our post on the recent release of the color picker for more information on creating a richer UX experience.

Hi all!

If you’ve created a new app recently, you’ve probably noticed a change to the color scheme selections. We’ve updated the choices available to select either a light color scheme or a dark color scheme paired with your button color of choice. This is a temporary, incremental part of some of the improvements we’ll be making to the branding capabilities in your AppSheet editor.

As part of this change, we’d love to hear more from you, our app creators. Because of this we’ll have a few members of our team who work closely with UX in our Office Hours session on Tuesday, November 26th. During that time you’ll be able to provide feedback and ask UX related questions. Register here if you’re interested in attending.


Hi! I have 2 suggestions for the UX color scheme.

1: The White - Red (The red would look better as more of a true red, rather than a light red)

2: I actually liked some of the plain color choices that have been removed. Like my app currently is using the green one, but that one has been taken off, so as soon as I try a different color, I wont be able to return to my green that I like. Thanks!


Hi AppSheet

I have got a problem with “Card View” the front is disappear with other color only white template is work but other color is not work.
Second the header of other table in dashboard view is too large. Could it open the developer to choose to remove or keep it?
Third it would be great if we can working on “Dash Board view”
Last point. It would be more power if we can add in row in table view same as “Quick Edit”

Hope this help .
Thank you very much from Thailand ^^


What a terrible idea! So you take away a capability and call it an incremental part of some of the improvements? Does this mean that there will be more “improvements” which are incremental and involve the quiet removal of features from the interface?

At least it is temporary. This leaves me with a little bit of hope that this feature will return to the way it once was. How temporary is it?


On my wishlist :blush:


Thanks so much for the feedback @retailpartnercom!

Hi @Nathan_Aycock. We don’t have a firm timeline yet for when the feature will be adjusted, but it is being worked on.

Hi @Appsheet_EasyApp! Are you working on mobile device or a desktop?

there is a problem i reported at least 5 month ago and there is no response!!
i am using my app on ios 12 and 13, with the 5 icon Ui, and there is no colors !
and today after the update, my app icons turned so ugly like this one !!
whats going on for god sake :frowning:

I don’t know about the color issue but I understand that a fix is on the way in regard to this issue.

I mean by the Color problem that even if you choosed whatever colore theme, you wont get anything but the black colore, no red no blue no orange nothing, just the black icons.

But if i returned to the old Ui with the sync and share buttons, the colore themes works fine.


I see. I was just referring to the bars at the bottom of the screen. I hope the color issue gets resolved soon. :slight_smile:

Yes we are on the same page, its all about the bar’s color at the bottom . I hope so, i waited for long time now :frowning:


So, I had a green layout before and now it is just white? I cant even change it back if I tried? Even when I select light layout with the green color selected, the background is still white. HELP

Supposedly, you can’t…
Maybe you can restore to a prior version before you made that change.


Hi @Christian_Martinek At this time you’re unable to revert back to the old color scheme. What can we help you with for your color scheme?

Just learned about this trying to create a new app. Only light and dark theme? You call this improvement? This a step back. Now i have to copy one of my current apps. Delete everything in it just to have my colored theme in my new app. Not to mention the work i already put in the new app. Now i have to start over. Bravo team appsheet! Bravo! You are really making me work for it don’t you.


Hi @Vlad_Roman Thank you for your feedback. This change is part of a series of incremental improvements that we’re making on the UX side of app creation. This color theme change is meant to be temporary, be sure to follow along in this community for information on future updates.


These future updates will include some sort of color scheme option for top and bottom ? Thank you!
