Noir is a Safari extension that automatically adds a dark mode to every website you visit.
It makes browsing the web at night so much better. With Noir, you won’t be blinded by bright websites ever again.
And the results look great too. Noir generates a custom dark style for each website you visit, based on the colors that are used on a page. You won’t even notice this happening in the background – that’s how fast it is – but you’ll certainly appreciate the end result: a beautiful dark mode tailored for each website, where contrast is preserved and highlights still pop. And with over 20 built-in themes and the ability to create your own, you can customize the results exactly the way you want.
Noir works with any website you visit in Safari, automatically. By default, Noir is linked to your device’s Dark Mode, so websites will only go dark when you want them to. But you can easily customize this to your liking, even per website. Only want to use Noir on just a few specific websites? Sure thing! Disable Noir on some websites? No problem!
Built from the ground up for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, the app feels right at home on your device. It supports the brand new Safari web extension feature, which means there’s no need to manually activate it every time you load a new page. The app also tightly integrates with system features such as Focus Filters and Shortcuts to fully integrate Noir in all your workflows. And your settings are automatically synced to all your devices using iCloud.
And just as importantly, Noir takes your privacy seriously: it doesn’t collect any of your browsing data. Period.
Noir is made by a solo iOS developer. It does not include any subscriptions or ads. Buy Noir once, use it forever.
• Found a website where Noir’s dark mode doesn’t look just right? Let me know by reporting it. The app will be frequently updated to address issues that are reported.
• The Noir extension requires access to the websites you visit to analyze the existing style of the page and to override it with Noir's dark style.
• Noir never collects your browsing data. The only data Noir ‘collects’ are your settings, and those will never leave your device.
Hi there! This update of Noir adds even more website fixes and improvements.
Previously, in the release notes... Version 2022.3 of Noir added support for an exciting and brand new feature in iOS 16: Focus Filters.
With Focus Filters, you can use a specific Noir theme while a specific Focus mode is active. For example, you can make Noir use its extra dark black theme when your 'Sleep' Focus is active, and the sepia theme for when you are in your 'Reading' Focus.
Additionally, you can also have Noir always on (or off) while you are in certain Focus modes. Want Noir to always be on while you're in your 'Concentration' Focus, even when your device's Dark Mode is not enabled? Focus Filters will make that very easy to set up.
With Focus Filters, it is now even easier to configure Noir exactly the way you like it at any moment. Especially in combination with the custom themes that were added in the last update, the customization possibilities are endless.
To get started with Noir's Focus Filters, update to iOS 16 and go to the Focus page in the Settings app. Select a Focus for which you want to customize Noir's behavior, and scroll to the bottom. Here you'll be able to add a Focus Filter for Noir.
I hope you like this new update of Noir! If you enjoy using the app, please consider leaving a review of Noir in the App Store. It really helps a lot!
Ratings and Reviews
Yes, It's THAT Good.
Noir is an excellent app and a superb value. I am grateful for a smart and truly utilitarian extension app that finally invokes and creates an Auto-Dark mode intelligently in Safari. —— Noir is so good, in fact, that you may not always recognize what it's actually doing in the background. It just becomes completely natural that Safari isn't blinding you while browsing at night. —— The rare moments when Noir does not "work" it's still doing exactly what it supposed to be doing, but inadvertently competing with a websites' own Dark Mode, until adjusted or "Auto" Dark Mode is sometimes simply turned off for a particular site that may not need Noir’s attention. —— Love this app, right down to the Dark Mode choices: Dark, Black, Gray, Sepia and Dracula.
Great on iOS but …
I purchased the Noir app for my iPhone and iPad immediately after Apple launched iOS 15 and I have been very happy with it. About a month ago, I bought my first Macbook . One of the first things I did while setting up my laptop was attempt to restore Noir to Safari from my iPhone/iPad to the Macbook. I figured it would be a simple process, especially because of Apple’s integration of iOS apps with the M1 Macs. Unfortunately, it quickly became obvious that if I wanted Noir on my Macbook, I would have to buy it again. I don’t have alot of money and It took me a year to save up for the Macbook so this was a disappointment. I have not purchased Noir for my Macbook yet and I probably won’t, simply because I can’t afford it nor can I justify the expense to myself. I already bought it. I’ll be looking into alternatives, but I am fairly sure that no other option will compare to Noir. Still, I can’t afford it. Just because I own a Macbook Air doesn’t mean I have cash to spare in order to buy something I already purchased.
If this is not the appropriate place to bring this issue up, I’m sorry, I mean no harm.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review! I'll look into that!
The best Dark Mode extension on both iOS and MacOS
After trying several extensions to enable dark mode, I read a suggestion online to give Noir a shot.
After several months of use, I can confidently say that Noir is the best Dark mode extension on iOS. You have the open to set a default on what dark mode appearance you prefer, and you can choose to either pause the effect or turn it off on a page by page basis. You can also report a webpage not adjusting correctly to the devs and it tends to fix itself rather quickly.
The best part about Noir is that your customization choices sync across iCloud. So when I discovered Noir on macOS, it was a no brainer to install because all of my preferences are automatically applied cross platform.
It’s not a resource hog at all, and the interface in iOS and Mac are easy to access and change.
I donated to the dev on top of payment just because this app is such a great design. I feel that this app is a must have utility app and I recommend it to everyone considering a dark mode extension that works perfectly with the added benefit of cross-platform functionality.
