Thank you for your feedback on the website redesign. It sounds like the new design doesn't fit your personal preferences, and that is understandable. Let us know if there are specific tasks that you are finding difficult to accomplish because of the redesign. We don't have any plans to build in personal background color settings for the webapp at the moment, but we'll continue to gather feedback on the redesign from budgeters to help us prioritize what to work on next.
Thanks again for sending over your feedback about the new look & feel of the website. We really value your feedback and we care about your experience using the Goodbudget website. We hope to make the website usable by as many people as possible.
While we’re not going to revert back to the old version or offer a dark mode option, we have decided to make some tweaks to the initial color palette. The revised palette still may not be what everyone is looking for, but because we heard critical feedback from a relatively small number of people, we choose to make minor tweaks instead of something more extreme.
Next time you log in to the web app, you’ll notice a muted color palette. Both the red and purple, which were the colors pointed out most often as too bright, have been swapped out with alternates that are darker and richer. The blue background color has also been altered to make it more grey, and less bright.
Thanks again for your thoughts, and happy budgeting,
