Massive bug if using dark mode

Can't see a single word if using dark mode but works fine if in light mode. Please change this ASAP.

Not so useful as expected

Not user friendly compared with the paper version. And there's no additional factors compared with the paper one. The only advantage of it over the paper is that it updates more frequently.
