There are a ton of apps out there that support dark mode these days. That wasn’t always the case, though. Once AMOLED displays started taking over, and Google officially started supporting dark mode, all of that changed. Now, every popular app out there offers some iteration of a dark mode. Google opted to go with a dark gray dark mode, but many people still prefer AMOLED dark mode aka pitch black dark mode. Why? Well, because it saves most battery, it allows pixels to be turned off. That being said, in this article, we’ll talk about some of the best AMOLED dark mode apps for Android.

Do note that these are only some of our most favorite apps that support such a dark mode. If an app doesn’t have a full black dark mode, it’s not eligible to be on this list. That actually disqualifies most of Google’s apps, but not all of them. This list is also quite versatile, as you’ll find various different apps here.
