in the face of criticism, the app will soon have a clear mode


The mandatory dark mode was accused by some customers of impairing readability.

This was one of the (many) criticisms made of the SNCF Connect application, launched at the end of January. Mandatory dark mode is almost over. This was announced by Christophe Fanichet, CEO of SNCF Voyageurs, on Friday at Parisian. A clear theme, on a white background, will be availableby May“.

We had chosen a midnight blue theme for visual comfort and energy savings. I remain convinced that this is the right choice. But you have to hear the critics“, he told the daily. Except that this dark mode, which consumes less energy, has been accused of being less readable by many Internet users. From May, it will therefore be possible to choose between the dark theme and the light theme.

The search bar remains unchanged

On the other hand, the search bar, which replaces the traditional “departure” and “arrival» and offers to enter «a destination, request…», will not be modified. And this despite the difficulties encountered by customers, who have found that this bar supposedly “intelligentmisunderstood some requests.

Since the launch of the app at the end of January, which now centralizes all SNCF services, “over 150 fixes and additionswere made, according to Christophe Fanichet, citing “wallet functionality [permettant d’ajouter ses billets à l’application “Cartes” sur iPhone, NDLR] beginning of March, then the agenda/calendar and the travel documents for the TER“. According to information from BFMTV, in addition to the clear mode, the SNCF Connect app, as well as its web version, should soon benefit from two other new features: the display of the price calendar over a month, and the composition of trains.
