Appearance Settings

Learn how to change the appearance of Structured

Looks matter. At least for an app that is designed to make your life a bit easier. This is why there is a variety of settings that you can use to change the appearance of Structured to best fit your needs and preferences. To access this realm of many possibilities, simply go to the apps ⚙️ settings and select Appearance. The top part of this section will show you how the modifications you have chosen will change the look of your app.

In the first segment, you can choose the color scheme of the app. Use either one of the most iconic Structured colors or create your very own custom color.


Next, you can choose between three options for your timeline layout:

Full: With the default setting of the app, the time will be displayed on the left side of your tasks and you have the option of directly adding a new task into an open time slot.

Simplified: This mode will rid you of that option. You can of course still add tasks with the ➕ symbol but this way your timeline will look less crowded.

Minimal: Here, neither the open time slots will be displayed, nor the time on the left side of the tasks.

The option to simplify your layout may help you if you have trouble on concentrating on too many things at once, or if you simply prefer a cleaner look.

Background color

There are three options for the background color of the app. The default setting is System, which means that it’s linked to the settings of your device. If your phone goes into dark mode at a specific time, the same will happen in Structured. Alternatively, you can choose whether you want your app to stay in light or dark mode.


Since our last update, you can use the font OpenDyslexic in Structured. This font was developed for people who struggle with dyslexia and can facilitate some in their reading speed.

The font size in Structured matches the one you have set on your iPhone or iPad and can be adjusted in your system settings (see below). For macOS users, you can now adjust the font size directly in the Structured Appearance settings.

App icon

If you are using Structured on a mobile device, you can choose between a selection of different app icons. You can either select the default icon in a different color or, if you feel nostalgic, switch to an icon we used in a previous version of the app.

System settings

There are also several options in your system settings that influence the way Structured looks. When going into the accessibility settings on your device, you can change text size, increase contrast, or reduce transparency. Also, you can reduce motion, which will effect the animations in Structured. This can be helpful if you sometimes struggle with motion sickness.
