Calender app with home screen icon that shows the correct date
  [vote for,

How hard can it be to make a calendar app's homescreen icon display the the correct date daily, instead of always making it appear to be the 31st (as Google does) or some other random stuck-in-the-mud date forthe whole month, every month? The way it is, the calendar icon can only be right 7 times a year, which is 358 days short of usefulness. Unless you want to open the entire app to check the days date, which wastes time, because most of these calendar apps now have such a busy-looking interface it takes a few minutes to find the actual date among all the other 'useful' crap they're stuffed with. And the only way to get my phone to display the date every day is to have it on lock mode which I don't want. Maybe it's just my phone ,as it's cheap - lol.

       Baked on iPhone, built-in calendar app. I'm sure some Android users have app suggestions that will work for you.

       The calendar app that came with my Android phone does this.

       The original or the remake?

       [Voice] - Really? I didn't know they made Android burner phones.

       My Google (Android) Pixel 8 does this. As does every iPhone I've ever seen. So to answer the question posed in your first statement, not hard at all.

       I don't want to sound like a hippo-critic but NO, hippo, my phone is a Hisense entry level phone. Android. Pretty crappy but not a burner phone, a1....more like a bummer phone heheh.   

       I was lazy about doing the research on this one. And I still need to go through the rules of Halfbakery. Bear with me, I'm learning.
