Is a light or dark UI better?

    My 2 cents - it really depends on the situation.

    If you have a lot of glare on your screen light UIs are better to see what you are doing.

    If you want to focus on purely visual content (e.g. photos, videos, 3D) dark UIs are better because they bring the focus to the visuals.

    For apps with a lot of reading (e.g. Wordpress) light UIs are better because I find that they are easier on the eyes.
