Disqus app update for Windows Phone includes new Dark theme and more

The popular blog comment system app Disqus, which got a big revamp for Windows Phone in early December, got a new update today in the Windows Phone Store that contains a new Dark theme option among its changes.

Here's the brief change log for the new version:

  • Added Dark theme option
  • Fixed notifications not appearing on live tile/action center
  • Bug fixes and improvements

Keep in mind that since the big 2.0 update, Disqus only works with Windows Phone 8.1 and has ditched support for the older Windows Phone 8.

  • Beautifully designed app. Recently stopped working. Reinstallation fixed the problem.
  • Didn't know it would fix that. Meh
  • Subway surfers and rate me apps has also been updated.
  • Does anyone have problems with toast notifications? I have to open Disqus in order to discover someone has replied to my comment. Other option is notification through email. Any help would be appreciated.
  • Did you read The changelog? This Update adresses THIS exact issue!
  • Awesome love this app.
  • And this is still a Windows Phone exclusive app, right?
  • Yes.
  • Awesome. A love that app after the update but cried after stop the notification.
  • Lost my windows phone, using android but missing that beautifull ui especially windows central app Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Boo :-( sorry to hear that!
  • Perhaps you could think about making a switch while windows 10 for mobile is due next week.
  • I'm thinking same. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Use Find My Phone from the Microsoft website! :)
  • No Use.. My phone was stolen...
  • You can still lock and delete everything remotely
  • Actually that technique uses sms and if someone has stolen the phone the first thing he/she will do is to remove the sim card so this FIND MY PHONE is nowhere helpfull.
  • Sorry to hear that.. you must currently be disappointed because uses super lagdroid for a while right? Hahahah
  • Absolutely Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Awesome UI
  • Like
  • Tapatalk learn from them.
  • Nice one
  • If you like me didn't manage to change theme just force close the app (in the x). Hitting back does not trigger the change. ;)
  • Restart ur phone not the app
  • No, you only need to restart the app.
  • I restarted the app it ddnt work then i restarted the phone and it worked. Mby its ma phone
  • Restarting the app worked for me.
  • I wonder if they are working on making this a Universal app.  That would be cool.
  • Why wont you use Disqus on this site
  • Loving the dark theme
  • One of my most frequently used apps, so I'm glad for every update. :) I've been wanting a dark theme option, good to see it. I wish they would fix it so when you click on a reply to one of my own posts, it would take me directly to that comment though. That's my only complaint.
  • WPCentral needs to switch to Disqus for its commenting system.
  • Disqus is a gem of an app. One of the best for WP!
  • Love the dark theme.
  • Oh, WP 8.1 -- no wonder I couldn't find it in the Store when I went looking for it...
  • I agree with that. WPC should be supporting apps like Disqus simply because its so good.
  • Still using version as the UI is a lot more pleasing than what they put out recently. A dark theme is tempting me though.
  • The dark theme eschews the line separators between items, so it feels a little more "modern" ;-)
  • It felt 100% modern before though.
  • much smoother with the lastest update, transparent tile also works probably now
  • @John Callaham can you tell me what the app in the center just above disqus is, please???
