Full view. Feedback is welcome.

Really nice. I think this version is better, for colors and contrast. And happy friday! ;)
Dark one 10 times better. Or 15 times. Well, it is cool.
Looks nice Julia :) personally I don't really like the coffee mark there, I think it's Ok to be removed. I also suggest to make the subject and the title bold. Btw what's the fb DD button function? it will be sent to fb message?
I think make the button wider a bit won't hurt and can make more easier to click hehe
rest is better :)
Looks great, @Julia Khusainova
Wow! This version looks really better)
I also prefer this version. Looks good @Julia!
Wow guys thanks so much for your comments!
@Claudio, @Andrey, @Kateryna, @Jonathan agree with you. Prefer this version over the light one.
@Bady Good point on coffee mark, I think I can get rid of it to make it look cleaner. This app allows you to send messages to your contacts on FB, Twitter personal message and Gmail message. So the drop down will pull down the services available for this contact (I might have Eric as a contact on FB, Twitter and Gmail ;)
Btw the drop down design is coming shortly!
Like that contrast on the dark version nice work :)
Hey Jul, your getting good with this stuff.
Dark version. Definitely. There's no doubt about it.
Yeah, I prefer this version. What about making the Facebook logo white? It's difficult to see over the black.
@Julia Khusainova I agree with all the comments above. An to add to that I think that I would change the color of Facebook's icon to white, instead of blue. Just it feels weird having a color on that button in my opinion, make the button wider, give it more physical footprint, and Take out the coffee stain, and you're golden! Great stuff.
@Juan Arreguin Dude. Copying or what. I'm gonna call you out on Twitter.
This one's better! A lot nicer on the eye. Great work @Julia Khusainova
This looks beautiful, is this going to be made into a real app? Would love something like that.
@Jack, @Juan I think you guys have a point. I just wanted to use the branding FB color (or Twitter if it is displayed).
@Liam Exactly :)
It just doesn't go well with the UI and the dark interface to have another "accent" color. Your main action, and what you want the user to do is "send" the message.
UX-wise, I'd even switch the options gear and the send button, just because you want the user to go from selecting an user, to typing a message, to sending... all actions that suggest a -> forward action... and having the button on the left, you're making the user go "backwards" in that flow.
And again back to the color, the blue accent color should be the send button, when you bring another color in, such as in the Facebook, it distracts the flow you've set for the user.
(sorry for the long message) :P
Dark is better! cool
Now that I look at it from that angle I agree that having 2 blue color in 2 different places is probably confusing.
For the Send and the Settings buttons - I tried to follow the OSX flow - people are used to native email client where we have Send button on the left (I agree, it feels a bit awkward but users are used to it). It just makes sense to me to get these action buttons where normally are so that user doesn't have to think twice to send the message.
Well what can I say - constructive feedback is beautiful. Thank you, @Juan! :)
This version it's even more awesome.
Beautifully done. I really like the dark version. However, the Facebook icon should be white or a lighter colour. It strains my eyes a bit to look at it.
That or some kind of contrast between the background colour and the button used. :)
Love what you have going here!
