  • Start calendar, right-aligned label at the top of the bottom half of the view says "Today".
  • Swipe calendar to background, wait for day to change.
  • Bring calendar to foreground, label still says "Today" but calendar is actually showing yesterday.

This is a pretty standard scenario as having a view of your agenda requires keeping the calendar app cover visible.

Calendar should update the relative date label when brought to foreground.

When today was previously shown, the view should track today, just as the cover does

Confirmed - just noticed this 5 minutes ago, although my calendar was still showing 1st of January :) App cover was hanging open for days, but the cover itself is changing the date correctly.

Confirmed here as well.
(I've been thinking of reporting this, and finally found my way back to this question.)

Opened and minimized the Calendar on Saturday (15/2), and used the cover if I needed to add events.
The cover changed date to Sunday (16/2), and today it says Monday (17/2), but if I open the Calendar app (both yesterday, and today), it still says "Today" with the mark over "15".

If I now select another day, for example Wednesday 12/2, and then click back to 15/2, it no longer says "Today", but (correctly) "15 February", and the mark is over "17".

(This is the first time I've tested this for more than two days.)
I've got installed, and have not enabled developer mode.

To me, this bug seems to have been fixed with the update:

  • The bug with erroneous "Yesterday"/"Today"/"Tomorrow" was fixed in the update.

  • The bug with the bolder marked / highlighted date, up in the montly view, finally got fixed in the update.

If this works for the rest of you as well, this question may now be closed.

edit(2014-04-17, in the morning)
Noticed yesterday, and double-checked now this morning: This isssue is not fixed.

Open Calendar, use Pulley to "Go to today", minimise to Cover, leave overnight.
In the morning, the Cover has been correctly updated,
and when restoring, correct date number is high-lighted (see "Bug: 1.0.4.x calendar app doesn't update current date"),
- the Calendar opens on yesterday, with the square over yesterday's date number, and the mid-right label says "Today >" (and when selected, shows yesterday's day view).

If I manually select another date number (or select "Go to today" using Pulley), the Calendar then shows "Yesterday", "Today", "Tomorrow" on correct dates.
(The reason why I thought this had been fixed is that I usually just add events using the Cover, and then open the Calendar later during the day - so obviously "adding an event using the Cover" also triggers the Calendar to fix its hiccup? Will have to double-check this tomorrow ... )

additional edit
I'm fine with the Calendar opening on yesterday, as long as the high-light square is correct, and the mid-right label is correct (as I can always use the Pulley to "Go to today"), and the Cover action suggests today's date for my new event.

Thank you for the observation. But please use "minor update" checkbox when editing your post numerous times :)

@zlatko - (You should only have got two update notifications (I did at least four edits) ... ?

The reason why I left the "minor edit"-box unchecked was that I edited my old post from three days ago, and wanted people to be notified of my correction of my previous error (and the second was because I couldn't know if someone had already read my first edit, and would otherwise miss my "additional edit").)
