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 it – but you’ll certainly appreciate the end result: a beautiful dark mode tailored for each website, where contrast is preserved and highlights still pop.
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 Shortcuts to fully integrate Noir in all your workflows.
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.
Noir - Dark Mode for Safari Positive Reviews
Great Extension! Would love an Auto change feature around night shiftI really like this extension, and it’s super useful and very similar to extensions I use on my computer for the same purpose. However, one downside is that I would rather be able to have websites auto darken based on my phones Night Shift setting, as opposed to just Dark Mode. I tend to keep Dark Mode on all day for personal tastes, but still prefer websites to be their normal themes until it’s darker outside and the whites become flash bangs. Hoping the APIs allow reading Night Shift status, because that would make this even better!
Developer responded with a good workaround for using Sunset/arise as a trigger and it works great! Thank you!!.Version: 2021.1.2
Exactly how it should beFor as long as dark mode has been out, it’s been extremely frustrating to open up Safari and have it not be in dark mode. From using it for the purposes of customizing the look of your iPhone, to having “sensitive eyes”, to wanting to be sketchy and as secretive as possible - whichever the reason, this app has you covered. No broken websites, no blinded by the light randomly on websites as popular as Google. It’s funny that after all these years, all these updates, and yet ANOTHER version of iOS - it’s STILL a 3rd party application / safari extension we have to use to enable our God given right to view content in darkness 😂 Thank you Noir!.Version: 2021.1.1
Very Much Worth It!At first I was hesitant to drop money on this app, especially since there aren’t enough ratings and reviews to display said ratings and reviews. Sure, $2.99 isn’t a lot, but I’m not really a fan of spending money on a mobile app unless it’s 100% worth every cent, and this app is just that! It works really well with every website I’ve tried it on thus far. Any websites I do run into that aren’t compatible can be reported in-app, and I’m sure the developer will make the necessary modifications to get this app working on that website. If you’re a night owl or you just like sitting in the dark, this app is a must..Version: 2021.1.1
AwesomeJust found out by reading the reviews that there is a true black mode now and i’m loving it !! was skeptical that this extension would work but I gave it a shot and i’m glad I did , it irritated me that the only thing that wasn’t in dark mode was safari and that problem is fixed ! haven’t experienced any bugs with this extension ! doesn’t bother me that google isn’t all dark seeing as tho I dont go to the google homepage and then look up what i need . job well done.Version: 2021.2.2
App is great! Can there be an option for removing transition effects?Hey this app is super cool and helpful, and I fall in love with using it as soon as I purchased one. Great job! Meanwhile, can there be an option for removing transition effects when opening a new tab/website? I always experienced a fade-in(or fade out?) effect that part of the website gradually turns from common white color to dark. I know it can be out of aesthetic reason, but at least to me it always stuns my eyes and becomes annoying to some extent. An option to turn it on/off would be great. Again, many thanks for building the app!.Version: 2021.2.5
Utter DarknessAfter the dev released an update to add pure black mode for OLED perfection, I had to leave a review. Despite this app being relatively new, as iOS Safari extensions has only recently been introduced, Noir is already one of my favorite utilities. It works better than most dark mode extensions for desktop, all while having a minimal feel and complete control over which websites it activates on. I think the price is extremely reasonable to support the developer’s work on this. Well done..Version: 2021.2
Absolutely amazing!I keep my iPhone in dark mode 24/7 and before downloading Noir, I never noticed how annoying it was for none of my frequently visited websites to support any type of dark mode. This app has literally made my browsing experience so much better. And I love how the developer is working so quickly to fix issues and make updates. I can’t wait to see how Noir matures over time and what other amazing app ideas this developer may have!.Version: 2021.2.5
Updated review: it’s basically perfect now.The developer of this app has quickly responded to feedback and feature requests, and now Noir is elegant, simple, and just as customizable as it should be. There’s a true black option now! And it lets you customize which mode applies by default, and which mode gets applied to specific websites. That’s just what’s needed to ensure every website is usable in dark mode. Thanks for making these improvements!.Version: 2021.3
Game changer for safariThis is an incredible app, works seamlessly. I was waiting for the pure black mode and suggested it to the developer. They communicated immediately letting me know they had that idea in the pipeline and would be implemented soon. A day or two later I noticed the app had updated to implement it. Game changer. Every website loads in beautiful pure black mode which looks amazing on an OLED screen. Highly recommend this app makes every website look fantastic.Version: 2021.2
Finally!!!As a person who is legally blind I have been waiting for an app like this to come out. I can finally navigate the web through safari in a dark environment without constantly having to toggle the invert colors option on and off. I normally stick to the free apps but took a chance on this one and have no regrets. After more than a decade of using iPhones I finally have a solution to this problem and I am extremely grateful..Version: 2021.1.1
So Far, Fantastic Experience! Helps save Battery Life!So, for anyone with an iPhone 11 Pro or up, or anyone using the iPhone X, or XS/XS Max can benefit greatly from this by having it reduce all that white background that Safari or other sites will normally display, and put a dark background to it so that you can use Safari a bit longer, with improved screen-on time.
I haven’t ran into any issues thus far. I’ll report back if anything weird happens!.Version: 2021.2.3
Works, but Grammarly extension breaks it!I went through and was installing several extensions at once and was very pleased with how well Noir works. The very next extension I installed after Noir was Grammarly and it immediately stopped letting me load the full websites with Noir. After disabling Grammarly, everything started working again. I don’t know if this was Grammarly just breaking Safari or if it was breaking Noir, just thought I’d mention if anyone is having issues troubleshooting. Great app!
Dark Mode Automatically!I have been using Firefox on my iPhone because it has an actual dark mode, but I like Safari’s integration with iOS better. This extension is exactly what I have been looking for! It does it what it claims; it turns each page to dark mode automatically, and without any delay in loading the page. I am so glad I found this extension! Absolutely worth the price to finally have dark mode while surfing with Safari..Version: 2021.1
SuperbWasn’t sure if I wanted to gamble the $3 on this but took a stab at it after seeing reviews. This is exactly what you’re looking for. The app offers a completely dark mode which is great for my OLED screen and battery. Also my eyes lol. It has a great tutorial on how to install and use the app/extension as well. If you’re on the fence about this rest assured it’s a completely safe purchase and you will not be disappointed. 10/10.Version: 2021.2.4
Hey great app that came at the right timeOne thing I can definitely say is that this app came at the right time when Safari extensions were created. Miss compliments to dark mode offered by Apple and make the process very seamless, it is also very minimalistic and has minimal to nonexistent effect on performance and website loading. I would recommend this up as an essential extension for Safari as soon as you update to iOS 15..Version: 2021.2
Works great! Developer listens!Works phenomenally on every website I’ve texted it with so far!
Originally, I didn’t like the almost solarized background color it used, and made a suggestion to use other colors as well, and in less than a week, the feature was added! I’ll always speak super well of a developer that listens and really cares about their app and users. Truly, well done, and thanks for the update!
This is currently the best dark mode extension I’ve found.
Original review: Works phenomenally on every website I tested it with, but I am not a huge fan of the blue-ish, almost solarized color it changes the backgrounds to. Please add an option to change this (maybe dark gray, black, solarized, etc., or something closer to Apple’s base or elevated colors in the HIG)..Version: 2021.2
Love/hateLove this app it is a game changer and honestly apple should have adopted this long ago but of course they just steal ideas and business models off of smaller companies..
Only thing I dislike is the permissions.. I understand no data is stored or kept on the apps part but I still have a lot of trust issues.. no hard feelings.
Again this app is great just be mindful of the permissions your giving away..Version: 2021.2.3
Great extensionFirst of all, major kudos to the developers of Noir. This extension works almost perfectly and it was one of many reasons I went back to using Safari as my default browser on iPhone and iPad. The only thing that did not work was when I save a website to my home page, the website comes up without Noir and no tool bar to enable it..Version: 2021.2.2
What Apple should've done from the start!Works great and the developer is very responsive. Works as perfectly as it gets with very few issues. My favorite feature is the app doesn't mess with websites that already supports dark mode natively.
If you want dark mode in Safari for all websites, I highly recommend this app..Version: 2021.2.3
Works well, when it worksIt appears to struggle with a number of websites, and when it does struggle, it makes the site practically impossible to read. Faded text or missing graphics entirely.
Apple Pay logos look like blank white cards, fandom has all the colors turned light grey on a white background.
Most sites it’s fine, but the lack of a one touch quick toggle adds frustration, along with needing to give redirected to the app to write an issue..Version: 2021.2.1
I posted a negative review cause i couldn't figure it outSo this is for balance. When i enabled it, i got spooked by the popup about it reading things i type in. So i clicked allow for one day to try it. But then it didn't work for some reason. When i picked allow, and allow for all websites it worked 👍🏻.Version: 2021.1.1
Finally I can browse at nightLike many of you, I am a fan of laying down in bed on my phone before bed to browse the internet. The problem is when googling something or any page that is super white it kills the eyes even with brightness all the way down. No longer have to worry about this 🙌🏽.Version: 2021.1.1
Amazing!I’ve tried other apps that attempt to do a dark mode. This one actually worked extremely well! I’ve tried all sorts of full page white sites and this extension was able to make them all dark but look extremely well! Bravo to this developer for making such a great app!.Version: 2021.1
Quite nearly perfect!This extension does exactly what it says on the tin - no more, no less. The user interface is spot on intuitive. The developer seems to exhibit a truly keen interest in their product and is quite responsive to customer input and concerns. Well done!.Version: 2021.3
AMAZINGI’ve been waiting for dark mode for safari for FOREVER. Most of my scrolling is done at night, and having it be dark makes my eyes strain so much less. This app works PERFECTLY! Occasionally there’s a site that it doesn’t work on, but 99.9% of sites is a good bet for me. Well worth the $3..Version: 2021.1.2
Looking forward to a Mac versionThank you for this great extension! I really like the feature of automatically turning off it when a website has its own dark mode. Would you have a Mac version for this wonderful extension?.Version: 2021.2.3
A few bugsSolid extension, happy with purchase. Seeing bugs on websites I frequent though which is frustrating. Dark mode also gets reset when swiping back occasionally. If these things get fixed in future updates it’ll be a 5 star rating from me..Version: 2021.2.3
Awesome!This app extension did what I've always wanted. Dark Mode all over safari. And it works! For the price and updates, I had to go with this one over the others I've stumbled upon on the App Store. I have it on my iPhone and iPad, and I hope there is one for Mac as well.
Great App!.Version: 2021.1.3
Works Flawlessly and Respects your PrivacyA simple, aesthetic, and effective dark mode. Normally I wouldn’t allow any app that requests full access to my web activity that isn’t open source, but the developer really seams to have a solid respect for data privacy..Version: 2021.1.1
Does what it’s intended to doThere’s not much to it, it makes safari dark as it states and it does it well. This is only of the few apps that I’ll leave a review for because this is exactly what I’ve been waiting for. Easily worth the 3 bucks..Version: 2021.1.1
Customizable Time Scheduling please!!!What a great app. It works 99% great but I would greatly appreciate it if you update the app with time scheduling function since iPhone’s Dark Mode is turning on when the sun set which is too early for me. Thank you..Version: 2021.2.2
Almost perfectDevelopers please give us a way to turn on dark mode for all the website after a certain time For example I would love to see all the websites how they normally appear from 6 am -5 pm and from 5 pm to 6 am next day I want to enable noir for dark mode. It would be a great addition. Thanks..Version: 2021.1.3
Finally dark mode for safariWorks perfectly but should have an option for the color. Instead of grey should be black, to save battery on oled phones and less light on eyes at night..Version: 2021.1.1
FinallyI have always hated when websites are still bright white even though the phone is in dark mode. This finally fixed the problem. Thank you for making this app!!!.Version: 2021.1.1
A must have app! Works on every site!I got this app/extension because I was tired of going to sites like New York Times, ESPN and Wikipedia at night and seeing their bright white background. Now my eyes are relaxed no matter what site I visit! Get this app! It’s a game changer..Version: 2021.1.1
My eyes are saved!This works very well especially for users whom read online constantly. Or for general use occasionally parts of google still stay white but overall it works with every website I have tried. Thanks for the very nice extension that saves my eyes!.Version: 2021.1.1
Great Extension!Does everything you’d ask for including helpful settings for letting website’s native dark mode take over if present. I would LOVE a sunrise/sunset mode to go off of or an ability tinder up times that Noir takes affect! Would achieve 5 stars easily.Version: 2021.2.2
Works great, well worth itHas options to automatically detect built in dark modes and not apply its own settings, as well as per app settings for dark mode. Very simple and useful extension.Version: 2021.2.4
Missing the polishNot bad and a great way to make up for what web developers don’t provide, BUT it also is rough on the edges still.
The setup instructions are outdated and things require a bit of extra work to get working in iOS 15. Not a huge deal but for a simple task and a paid app, I expect no issues..Version: 2021.3
A great app limited by iOSWorks well with safari but doesn’t seem to work as well with “safari view” which I use in a reader app.
That’s not the fault of the app though. Safari views do not support extensions..Version: 2021.2
Works beautifully!Exactly as described. As easy to set up as any other extension, and I haven’t run into any issues. I still can’t believe there’s no native dark mode, but this was well worth the purchase..Version: 2021.1.1
Works great, easy to use.I tried another one and it was complicated, this one is simple and well designed. Only had problems with a few sights, which I disabled easily..Version: 2021.1.1
Game changerI don’t know how I used Safari for so long without this app. Almost every website was so bright. Found this app on Reddit when someone recommended it to iPhone users..Version: 2021.2.4
Ten starsMakes all the difference. Works even better than I thought it would. I’ve wondered why apple didn’t do this when they introduced dark mode..Version: 2021.1.3
Doesn’t work well for GoogleTons of white spots where interactive panels show up (for movies, suggestions, etc) on Google. It works just fine being refreshed, so I hope the author will fix this. Otherwise it works as advertised with the major exception of Google. Will update my review if the bug is ironed out..Version: 2021.2
Where has this app been all my life? Amazing!I love dark mode. When it was added to iOS i rejoiced. My eyes get tired at night as I get older.
It drove me insane that most apps support dark mode but then I’d go to the Google homepage and be blinded.
This app works insanely well. It does exactly what it promises and it is a miracle.
I also applaud the developer for charging a good price and not trying to milk this into a subscription. I’ll buy every app you make to support this! Haha thanks so much..Version: 2021.1.2
Safari Dark Mode is Finally Here!Props to the developer for making this feature available as soon as iOS 15 came out. I’ve been using a similar extension on my Mac and I’ve been waiting for something like this for a long time. Stoked that the developer doesn’t collect information, and a one-time-payment is honestly so much better than a subscription price model..Version: 2021.1.1
Good app!!!Noir dark mode app is a new app that came out the same day of iOS 15 because it only works for iOS 15 due to the feature of Extensions and i have bought it and it works so good and it does the job done and easy to follow the Instructions!!.Version: 2021.1.1
Finally!Works great! Thank you!.Version: 2021.1.1
GreatI have been waiting for something like this for ages, works great so far! I like that it is integrated as a Safari extension..Version: 2021.1.1
Good appDefinitely my favorite app. Just got it today and it’s been amazing on safari the dark mode on all the websites was great.Version: 2021.1.1
Works well, wish it had an OLED modeSurprising good extension app, and intelligently darkens websites. My only wish is to have a black option rather than only the dark grey background option..Version: 2021.1.1
As describedSave my eyes! Thank you!.Version: 2021.1
AwesomeAwesome extension and very well executed. Must have for people like me that enjoys dark mode!.Version: 2021.3.1
Where the Synchronization?I love this app but when i said to my iPhone to not put this website in dark mode, it do not transfer to all my device. Please fix this 🙏.Version: 2021.3.1
PRAISE BEBest app/extension!.Version: 2021.3
Absolutely amazing app!This is one of my essential apps already and I’ve only had it a day! Works perfectly and dose what it says well! Highly recommend if you love dark mode
My only wish is that it can make the safari bookmarks on my home screen dark as well!.Version: 2021.2.5
Perfect appSimple and works perfectly with iOS 15, don’t hesitate..Version: 2021.2.2
I love NoirI really do love Noir The app and extension saves my eyes when I’m on those websites that you haven’t adopted night mode On safari. And with this extension/app there’s finally a way around that!.Version: 2021.2.1
Great safari extensionReally nice app! One request: there’s a bit of a weird behaviour when clicking though Wikipedia links where the screen flashes bright white for a split second before reverting to dark mode. This is pretty jarring at night..Version: 2021.2
Yes!I'm so pumped that you added full black mode instead of dark only. This was worth every cent!.Version: 2021.2
Incredibly efficientThis app simply works, it won’t let you down. One of the best purchase I’ve made..Version: 2021.1.3
Does what it says mostlyWorks well. Had some serious issues with Wikipedia just not loading properly when this extension was enabled however
Edit: My original review is above. I contacted the developer and since the latest update (on 2021-09-23) the issue has been resolved for me.Version: 2021.1.2
Great so farPlease add the ability to customize the dark mode (contrast) and turn on automatically from sunset to sunrise. Thanks for the great app.Version: 2021.1.2
You’re doing NYT’s jobExcellent job! New York Times is now readable in the dark 🙏.Version: 2021.1.1
It’s just okayThe rendering is not as good as Samsung browser dark mode. There is no equivalent feature on safari despite the promise of this app. Fonts are rendered in an inverted style and make websites quite garish.Version: 2021.1.2
Great app!Does exactly what it says. The dark mode this app gives to safari looks stunning. Just wish there was a truly black option in the app. But overall love it.Version: 2021.1.1
Like the idea but…If It can get access to sensitive information from websites I visit as the popup warning states, That’s not cool. The developer should clarify that..Version: 2021.1.1
