Pure Black Theme

Although I love Dark theme, it only saves battery on LCD and Oled screens. I would really like to see a pure or "true" black theme for Textra. This would save battery by shutting off pixels that display true black, such as the notification bar in stock Android 4.3.
"Pure" black: http://www.ledr.com/colours/black.htm
The pure black is displayed inside the blue box. This color on Amoled screens actually shuts off the individual pixels, and thus saves battery. This could result in much less power consumption on Amoled devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the Samsung Galaxy S3. There are various other phones that also use Amoled technology.

        LOVE the black theme. Is there any way to toggle the black mode as the night mode? Thanks!

        Yes please add and all black them option not just Dark.

        I'm not sure why this isn't marked as included, Textra has this, I'm using it on my Moto X 2014. It has an AMOLED screen and Textra does not light up the background pixels while using the Black theme.

        It's killing me to not have pure black! Textra is the best SMS app I've ever used, but their idea of 'pure black' is charcoal grey and that is annoying. Please give us pure black as a theme color, Textra!

        This is a good idea. Would like to see this as well.

        Would love to have this as well. All Black is easier on the eyes as well.

        AMOLED screens like the ones in my phone benefit greatly from this. I highly support this enhancement.
