Hello.. :-). Is there any way to get the previous look of the account list? I couldn't find how, using settings. Previously I had a nice *flat* (instead of tiles) and colourful list (instead of just a little color handle to the left), now.. I can't say it looks nice at all 😣; of course I'm tell you my feeling based upon my own tastes and experience.

On the attached screenshots comparison (taken on a Galaxy S7 at mid-res, it shows the same on a Galaxy A3, both on Android 7.0), you can see how the 'old' look was flat, no padding around widget and more material-compliant (first horrible drawing in yellow). The other yellow drawing below shows how color was filling completely each account rectangle whereas now it's only a little rectangle to the left.

I don't care much if the expand (V) and refresh buttons are now switched (expand to the right, refresh to the left), but one could wonder why they have been switched, this will confuse users' habits.

Thanks for your vote requesting colored backgrounds in account list view as it was in previous versions.

Thank you for your voice, which requires colored backgrounds in the Account List view, as they were in previous versions.

This requirement has also been pointed out in another thread and in fact the designer seems to be thinking about a solution for  day-by-day users:

...extend the color band to the whole line of account name.
+1, +1, +1
Personally I find the lack of colors in the account list makes the list difficult to use. The account colors make it much easy to see which account is which. Please don't let this die.

Users of AquaMail should have the option, in Account list settings, to select the white (current) layout or the colored one.
In my opinion, implementing an additional option would be very useful and probably the best solution:

Just to be clear, I'm asking for an option. Both the color extension and the current white layout should be proposed.
Yes, understood. One of AM's best features is the number of options available. So if Mobi's designer is so set on the new background for the account list, he/she should also be aware of the number of users who have expressed interest in keeping the existing colored background. And not swap new for the old, but -add- the option to let the user choose.

Well, that would be a good point. There's still a bad point IMO in the new design, as spotted in my screenshot comparison above, it's the extra padding added around the tiles. Not conform to material design, and a waste of space that makes things difficult on small screens (or big fingers).

I hope we see a option to get the old contacts bars back, too!

The "extra padding" actually *is* Material - it's a "card".

Re: account colors - thank you all for your feedback.

Okay, but why did you decide to use a card instead of the current flat model? I'm curious.

Can't really speak for our designer - but I guess "cards" are "more modern" and "material like".
