The new interface is crisp and clear but I find it a bit bright.

Any chance we could have personal settings for dark backgrounds?

+1, at a minimum. I wonder if the new UI was tested on a focus group? I feel like it's gone in the wrong direction; it's overly simplistic and cartoonish and instead of "cute and welcoming" (which is how the old one felt) it seems cold and uninviting. I'll still use GB despite the interface, but I really dislike it.

I agree..the colors are hideous and I really can’t stand it..wish there was an option to use the old interface..will continue to use it in the meantime, but will be looking for a more palatable’s a shame because I’ve been a subscriber for years.

Hi everyone,

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.

If you could take some of the brightness off the page, that would help initially. Some developers also give the option  to 'use the older version'. That would also be helpful too. I love Goodbudget though. Been using it since 2011 and it's kept our lives on track with money.
