The new look is inferior because you have yet to solve Podio's most glaring issue... Color and Contrast.
I use Podio 6 hours a day. I look at Podio more than I look at my wife. The old look, while definitely needing a dark mode, is far easier on my eyes than the new Podio. Not to mention, the contrast in colors makes it more difficult to notice/see notifications, item separations, etc. If you're dead set on using this new look, take the time to actually improve it. Create a dark mode, or better yet, allow users to select the colors that work best for their working environment. What you have now may be faster (because you chose to continue development on an updated look not because the old look couldn't have been made equally as fast), but it is inferior when it comes to a productivity and health standpoint. Give me a dark mode or give me death.
