    PLEASE FIX ! . It's almost a very long time since I have mentioned the bug about AOSP dialer not being themed ! . Despite AOSP theme not being themed , every bit of theme is brilliant ! . PLEASE FIX !

  2. Abhishek Singh-avatar

    apk Still working fine. I'm using it on my Sony phone without root by Andromeda plug in on oreo 8.0.0. This is my first time using pitchblack theme without root.

    pitchblack - substratum theme ✪ nougat/oreo/pie Theme applies to play store randomly the overlay is installed and is enabled but most of the time the theme is not present on Play Store app

  4. Vishal Khatri-avatar

    download A great theme with bunch of accent colours.

  5. Duh CyniC-avatar

    pitchblack – substratum theme for nougat/oreo/pie Google Dialer 47.0.30 is broke in theming

  6. Matthew Bess-avatar

    Please rethink the ALL CAPS on notification actions. It looks really out of place. Also, the theme changing button backgrounds (such as in incoming call notifications) to square instead of rounded looks really bad on stock Android 10. Other than those 2 things, this is probably the best looking theme that supports Android 10.

    It is not work on moto e6s on 9.0 pie version . Tell me how to work Pleaze i purchased it

  8. sumit yogi-avatar

    Slow update and app crash

  9. Harmish Pandya-avatar

    Everytime update rolls out for any of the app I'm using with pitch black overlay, the app crashes. I've to disable all the overlays and setup them all over again. Otherwise this theme is perfect.

  10. Claudia-avatar

    Used to work but it now says it's not licensed

  11. Shoaib m-avatar

    everything is great lot of accents to choose from, but one accent missing "WHITE" please add this accent

  12. CAHbKA-avatar

    It's still the best theme. I haven't used any other themes but it's updated pretty often so you won't regret. MOST LIKELY YOU'LL NEED ROOT!

  13. Francis Castle-avatar

    Beautiful! Only theme I can find to give me black with red accent just the way i like it. moto e5 play rooted oreo

  14. sharukh rahman-avatar

    Using redmi note 5 pro. It worked on havoc os 2.9. but it doesn't work on pixel experience rom running android 10. Please fix it.

  15. Alejandro-avatar

    A must have theme with exceptional quality and planty of customization.

  16. Burak Baggins-avatar

    Added bonus of quite good battery savings on amoled screen phones.

    Clean AMOLED black. Quick updates for apps. Happy user

  18. arthur beats-avatar

    Nice theme thank for development this theme. Keep it up

  19. Lukacs Levente-avatar

    It's not working for me and I can't use it

  20. Meehul Saini-avatar

    It is the best app for amoled devices. But i want to try other themes too. So I want refund.

  21. Ariestya Dibyanugraha-avatar

    Ariestya Dibyanugraha


    Several apps aren't themed properly. I can understand the difficulties keeping up theme for several apps, not to mention regularly update them every time the apps are updated. But unless it is properly themed, the theme is almost like two options: use it or discard it.

  22. Daksh Desai-avatar

    I really want Snapchat support, I have been requesting it from 2 years now. Please consider adding it.

  23. Dhanial D'Amakiz-avatar

    version 76.0 bug in playstore

  24. A Google user-avatar

    Love your theme. It works perfectly for my phone. Only drawback is that there is no theming support for Chrome. I have read that Google has encryted Chrome's resources which prevents installation of overlays on it. Well, maybe someday you can bring theme support for it. Keep up the good work!👍 Update: Now there is theme support for Chrome!!

  25. A Google user-avatar

    Edit: Your suggestion worked. Thanks! I have changed my rating. This theme is gorgeous and definitely worth every penny you spend on it. Previous message: I am using OnePlus 3, Oxygen OS. WhatsApp overlay just doesn't seem to work. Either the texts are invisible (because the background is too dark) or the settings are. Please fix this. The only reason I bought this theme was the fact that WhatsApp doesn't have a night mode.

  26. A Google user-avatar

    This is the greatest theme in the history of Android themes. CyanogenMod Theme Engine, Arcus, Layers, Substratum I've used everything...well not pure RRO I guess. They've all had versions of these Pitch Black themes. This is a well maintained, well detailed theme, with a ton of accent colors and several background hues to choose from. The only thing to dislike about this theme is that someday support will end.

  27. Romaine Jarrett-avatar

    Romaine Jarrett


    App is Phenomenal!!! My only gripe is that whatsapp has a orange bar when u swipe right to respond... Everything else with whatsapp works fine.. But when you swipe right on someone's message to show that ;that's the message your responding to, the whole thing turns bright orange and stays that way. This App is great!! & would be 5 stars otherwise.

  28. Em Ji Madhu-avatar

    this is one of the best theme i tried so far. i used it a long time back when CyanogenMod was there. recently i came across and start using it. everything is perfect, except poor communication between developer(s) and users. but understably that is okay. thank you for this great theme!

  29. Dean-avatar

    Perfect theme has the most themed apps and color options out of any substratum theme you will find makes any phone UI look a hundred times better constantly updated and a very nice dev. Doesn't even need official oos 10 support. I've been using it on oos 10 without issue for weeks now. Just an amazing theme that I have loved using for three years now. All these bad reviews are just from people that have no idea what they're doing or how to use substratum properly don't listen to them.

  30. Piransu-avatar

    This is a great and highly extensive skin, very happy over all. Would give 5 stars if not for the buggy Google search theming. The widget is totally is totally different, suggested text is wierd looking with shadows and worst of all, in search results the search categories are 2 mm off the actual search bar with empty space between and actually covering the actual results.

  31. DexyStorm-avatar

    Very nice theme! Best I have used yet. But the WhatsApp theme is disgusting and Google assistant ALWAYS crashed, doesn't matter the version/device. For WhatsApp and Google I am using Swift Black. And there is no Samsung Internet theme. For that, too, I am using Swift Black.

  32. Abhiram S-avatar

    The only substratum theme that's worth paying for. Guess that tells you how good this theme is. Frequent updates make sure that this works even with updated apps since some themes that don't get regularly updated face a lot of issues. And as they say, Once you go PitchBlack , you never go back. 😉

  33. Shakeel Ahmed-avatar

    Unable to apply the theme after repeated trials. Even had to factory reset my device cause it got stuck while applying the theme, and didn't turn on when switched off. After resetting my device, I tried again. But it showed "Can't connect to Andromeda" while the andromeda status showed connected ,and other themes can be applied. One plus 5 user ,stock ROM.

  34. rushi rokde-avatar

    The most beautiful theme I came across since I started with Android customisation. From Resurrection Remix on Galaxy S2(cm theme engine) to now, its a blessing for AMOLED displays. Till date Pitch Black has been my all time favorite theme. I'll never be bored with this theme. Keep up the good work! 👍🔥❤️

  35. Prakhar Mishra-avatar

    A great theme.. Amazing variety of theme accents. A vast variety of app support. Only pain is reapplying the entire theme after an update (takes 2-3 minutes) but wouldn't really consider that as it is the same with every other theme. Some automated method would be great though. Overall an amazing theme.

  36. Venkatanathan Swaminathan-avatar

    Venkatanathan Swaminathan


    Hi, the theme is really good. However there are certain issues, for example there is an app called quickride in which we will need to select date and time, which after applying the theme does not show up. Any solutions?

  37. Tatsumi Noriaki-avatar

    Tatsumi Noriaki


    Nice theme of you want a amoled kind of black, everything looks really good, just one little nickpick. when playing music, youtube, etc the album art on the notification shade its not fully cover, since there is a little space at the edge of the album art

  38. Kuldeepak Marde-avatar

    Kuldeepak Marde


    PitchBlack is always my favourite...Black phone with black theme...superb combination...Best personalized professional theme...Swift Black also good...But your updates are so faster...Thanks for your quick support...Add theme for some app like Google Allo, Dropbox, Google Duo, Files Go, Pinterest, Quora, Snapseed etc...I'm waiting @AltanKRK...hope you'll do it...Thanks🤩😎🤟

  39. Marco King-avatar

    One of the best out there. The response to your emails are fast, the colours are wonderful and unique. The fact that the theme spreads all around the 3rd party apps that you install is amazing. From discord, YouTube and many more.

  40. Jakub Glowacki-avatar

    Good theme, but it gets rid of a lot of UI details that are nice to have, like separators. The Messages overlay makes it impossible to distinguish RCS from SMS, and I wish there was a slightly brighter version of the Dark Grey themes to make them more readable in bright light.

  41. A Google user-avatar

    Did not work on Resurrection Remix v7 Andriod 9 (Pie), luckily play store had a refund button for me. I didn't realize that this was just a skin that works for some apps and not others anyway, I'll stick with the default look of RR v7.0.1 and just enable dark mode where I can, in my opinion much better. This should be free anyway, I see no reason for the price.

  42. Tushar Jain-avatar

    Was one of my favorite themes. But on Pie. The white notifications are not exactly white and the black color when swiping notification. Looks ugly. As notification are most important part of using the device.

  43. Fallen PRSX-avatar

    Revoked Purchase Minus Refund You have revoked my purchase minus a refund on one of the devices I primarily use you're at one star until my purchase is restored and I am able to install the app again

  44. Maxine Millian-avatar

    this theme is cool & i really like it. However, for some Google applications such as Playsore, Gmail and others, the status bar icon color is dark, and also some of the icons in the application turn to dark gray when others are white or red.

  45. Shane Stallard-avatar

    Having a problem with latest update, I'm selecting black Netflix colour and it keeps reverting to dark grey g cyan theme. I'm not using root I'm using the Andromeda script on stock have not had this problem before till the latest update. On 8.0 oms

  46. pix0wl-avatar

    Just another Substratum theme which is not working without Google apps because of the license check. 😥 For people with the same problem: Try SwiftBlack/Dark. Maybe not the prettiest theme but it works without GAPPS, is compatible to most OS and gets often updates.

  47. Radix Mulya M-avatar

    great theme, i love it but since last month i got problem with it when i try to change colour accent, in the end i uninstall all overlay then try to re isntall it until now its always failed to install it please help me

  48. Marsa Irfansyah-avatar

    Marsa Irfansyah


    Just bought this, the colour and overall theme looks really slick and cool.. the problem with Google system apps appeared again, it seems fine at first, but then it crashed again

  49. David Grim-avatar

    does not work but at least i got a refund. keeps generaring more than 1 profile and you can not pick so it doesnt work in the manager. also it says select valid something. sad as it looks great in pics. this is for pie.

  50. Krish Sriram-avatar

    Thank you for the swift response. I did as suggested. Things are fine. Will update if I face any issues. Keep up the good work. This system wide pure black with colourful accents and other apps a treat to the eyes.

  51. Mr. McShagBag-avatar

    Great theme! Would like greenify to have black background with white lettering instead of the current dark gray background with black lettering. 👍🏼

    Simply the best all black substratum theme! Developer super-responsive with updates and fantastic support through Telegram. Cannot recommend this enough! Buy this theme now!!

  55. TD-avatar

    There could be bugs. However, comparing to other themes, this one does far better job and worth every penny.

  56. Sachin Ranjan-avatar

    Nice one..only complaint is that when apps are updated ..they stop working..theme is to be installed again using pc..I have disabled auto update in playstore for this problem.

  57. Rushank Prajapati-avatar

    The theme is exceptional. I bought this theme and installed it on my Asus device. But when I am trying to download this on my OnePlus device it is asking me to buy again. pls fix this and i will re rate this app again

  58. Pranav Kumar-avatar

    The best black theme for all AMOLED screen. I'm in love with black and red color combination. It's feels like Taki Taki background theme.

  59. Gary Oppenhuis-avatar

    Frequent updates, great attention to detail, many options for color and design.

  60. Billy B-avatar

    Dev updates this regularly. Best theme app out. Mutliple colors to choose from. Never had to wait on update. Awesome work thank you.

    Jef Sellekaerts


    one of the best themes around. lots of customisation. only one complain: it removed the fading gradient behind the quicksettings pannel. it would be nice to have this or atleast have a toggle for it! thanks for concidering

  63. Rock wilson-avatar

    Its not Fully a product, i will buy once all bugs and complexion are removed. Its too much manual and dirty work for now.

  64. Saransh Sharma-avatar

    best of all of them but also need bug fixes like playstore stops working when you apply theme on playstore. also so many apps dosent included in this theme.

  65. Ryan-avatar

    Best. Theme. Period. Dev should charge a bit more for this theme in my opinion. This is the best one out for Pie right now if you love the dark themes.

  66. Vaibhav Verma-avatar

    one of the best substratum themes that I have encountered. with regular updates, this app is definitely worth more than the developer charges for this app

  67. Rohit Goswami-avatar

    This is the best theme bar none. It's got a variety of dark themes which are easy on the eyes. The developer is very friendly and responsive.

  68. Philip Shumway-avatar

    Really an amazing amoled black theme along with different material dark backgrounds. It is constantly updated and well maintained. Enjoying this on my op6!!

  69. omkar londhe-avatar

    Always Loved PitchBlack. Awesome themes but just 1 request can you add Google files in your themes. It is one of the less frequently updated app from Google so it won't be headache for theme updates Please consider my request regarding to Google files

  73. Prabhath K-avatar

  74. Pavan kumar-avatar

    Theme is looking amazing,but please also add support some more apps like play music,google maps,Facebook and messenger.

  75. A Google user-avatar

    Works without a hitch, frequent updates and responsive support.

  76. Falsif13d-avatar

    Can't use. Keep getting errors and theme won't apply on both Xtended Pie or Lineage OS ROM. Save your money.

  84. john uhlman-avatar

    Very nice , cool theme . In this theme many options of color I like it. Mainly it theme work other apps

  89. Akhil-avatar

    Excellent theme. Just went through all the 1* reviews. These are done by people who do not know to read. They don't have the common sense to read the description and end up commenting nonsense.

  90. Suraj Malik-avatar

    Awesome.app. Wish you could port more apps like telegram and some other,just saying.Anyways, amazing work!!!

  91. Naren Senthilkumar-avatar

    Naren Senthilkumar


    if you like black, then this is for you. I just can't use the light built in theme and pitch black was my choice of dark theme

  92. Tejas Rao-avatar

    Sorry for such a late review. Been using this theme since marshmallow. Amazing theme. Totally worth it.

  93. Batman-avatar

    A perfect dark theme even if you don't have amoled screen. Themes like this is the reason I immediately install custom ROM on my devices. Edit : Still using this theme on my Nougat Redmi note 3! Thanks for keep supporting nougat!

  94. Muhamad 'Sansun' Santosa-avatar

    Muhamad 'Sansun' Santosa


    its a nice app, but not that practice.. you have to connect your device to the pc... very unsimple

  95. Vinay Kumar-avatar

    Great theme, few design errors here are there but overall gorgeous looking theme

    I paid for it and it installed.... But nothing is on my phone...... On playstore it only gives me an option to uninstall... It doesnt ask to open. Its not anywhere on my phone. Please sort this out or give me a refund

  97. cybsts x8sac-avatar

    It works perfectly and it lloks nice. My amoled screen and myself thank you.

  98. Nielsen-avatar

    Certainly one of the best substratum theme. Worth every penny. Love it!

  99. Art MacNew-avatar

    As of today my phone shows it as an unlicensed copy. did something change in the latest update to effect security? I ended up needing to use the recovery zip to uninstall it.

  100. foss-avatar

    True black, and so many accent colours to choose from that I never need to use another theme.
