    Default Calendar App Icon always at 15?

    i just noticed yesterday that the Calendar App Icon said "15" and yesterday was June 15. i thought that's cool - the Icon updates with the current date. i expected today to say "16" but it still says 15. i hit refresh and did a reboot and it still says 15. was it just coincidence that i just noticed this yesterday on the 15th and it is always at 15? any way to fix this?

    i searched around for screen shots to confirm but could not find one with the Calendar App Icon.

    again - i'm talking about the HTC Calendar App Icon - not a widget.

    thanks!

    The same thing is happening to me.

    My alarm isn't working either.

    It's just an Icon that so happened to have 15 on it.

    Yup. What he said. It is just a static picture of a calendar page, and the creator just happened to choose the 15th. Essentially really bad luck on your part to notice it on the day that was the 15th. That would be cool, but since it is just an icon/link and not a widget we are out of luck.

    The Pre calendar icon does change with the day, which i thought was an interesting touch.

    What I do is use the calendar widget. That gets updated,and then to launch the calendar, double tap the widget.

    ovE yeah, man i miss that. some really simple, classic, sensical things on webos.

    npark... sure, but double clicking? google really should understand there's something called usability.

    If you use the smaller 1x4 calendar widget you only have to single tap the calendar icon to enter the app, and you get a updating date along with it.

    No need to double tap. Single tap works fine for me. I've started using Jorte Calendar widget, btw. Instead of just showing the day (which I have in my notification bar), it shows a tiny list of my upcoming appointments. Much more useful. See the bottom right of the screen shot:
