Dark Mode?

So the app (in the description has a black backround, and the first time I downloaded it, it had a dark background. But after switching to a different computer, and downloading it again, it only has a light background. Same when I downloaded it onto my laptop - only a light background. How do I get it to a dark background again?

Developer Response ,

The app follows the system settings. You can change appearance in
‘System Preferences’ -> ‘General’ to Dark or Auto

Good, simple, practical functionalities

Would appreciate if the app could be added to the menu bar on top as an icon for simple functions to start/stop or do rounds instead of having to switch to it and open it to constantly start, stop, round, and reset stopwatch.

Developer Response ,

Thank you! Planning to support the menu bar.

Good overall

The timer works great, but you can only have one at a time. I often switch between tasks that I want to time independently, which can't be done with one timer.
