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.

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.
Out in v3.34 early April. Email email@example.com if you’d like an advance copy to test out.
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.
would love this with an option for a darker text color as well
Defo a good idea.. Please implement this one. Cheers
AMOLED screens like the ones in my phone benefit greatly from this. I highly support this enhancement.
