Question:How do I apply the theme?
Answer:You use the Substratum theme engine app to apply the theme.

Question:Why are the notifications background white on some overlay versions?
Answer:The notification colors are partially set within the frameworks and it's not possible to theme the frameworks in all Android versions. This is why the notifications are white on some ROMs.

Question:Why are there issues with Contacts on some ROMs?
Answer:The contacts app relies on OMS commits where the colors are exposed. Not all ROMs supports OMS so if you experience issues with the app I recommend to disable this overlay.

Question:Why are there some rare issues with WhatsApp or Instagram?
Answer:WhatsApp and Instagram do not offer complete support for a dark theme, that's why there are some issues with dark text on a dark background. You can always remove the overlays in the Theme Engine app.

Question:I experience other issues.
Answer:I'm offering instant support. Instead of reviewing the app and explain the issue in the review system please contact me by email, Hangouts or join the Telegram channel linked above.
