Dark User Interfaces for iPhone Apps

It takes hard work to build the skills necessary for designing a top-notch iPhone application. There are so many screens to consider in the workflow process. Not to mention the dual-graphics required for retina devices adds even more into the mix. But among the countless designers there are some amazing folks who can build really outstanding app interfaces.

In the showcase below I’ve collected an assortment of dark UI themes for iPhone. Some of the most prominent apps feature this darker theme because it appears cleaner than others. As a designer you can also work with many bright colors as they reflect well off a black BG. Let us know your thoughts, and feel free to share any examples of dark iPhone UI that you simply adore.

  1. Check out ToonThat (think twitter for cartoons) – just went live last night. Also sports a dark-theme to bring out the colors in the Toon.

  2. The user interfaces for these iphones is fantastic. The look and feel is good and the features are excellent. I like this one.
