I suggest you ...

Offer a dark theme in the Android app similar to the one on the web.

Blue is nice but dark is better, at least for some people.

        I also want a dark or black version for android and may have to use another app instead if I find one that works and has dark. Love the app otherwise

        I need a dark theme too. Tweetdeck for Android has a good color design.

        Wow. This idea is 18 months old and nothing has been done? Aside from the cosmetic differences, the white theme is way too bright to read in bed at night without keeping my better half awake. Surely it can't be hard to install a deep blue or black theme?

        Dark background / white font should be standard, much better 4 your battery aswell as your eyes

        Really want the dark theme for my Samsung Tab. Looks way cooler than the white.

        I totally dig the white theme and I'll pick it over black any day, but as stated here, black uses less battery on AMOLED, and white uses a LOT more than on LCD. My phone is an LCD screen so I don't personally care, but this is an essential feature for AMOLED screens.

        Wrong click, so it'll show up as a comment. Love the HootSuite Android app, but it blinds me when checking Twitter while out stargazing. Black and dark red are good colors that don't hurt the eyes much. Simply having a toggle between 'night mode' and 'day mode' would be good.
