Opening Calendar doesn't jump straight to today?

Maybe it's just me but whenever I open the calendar app, I have to touch the TODAY option to see today's agenda. I thought back on iOS 6 that it would automatically open on the today view. Anybody else seeing this?

Mine seems to go to where I left it. Both ways make sense to me. As long as there is a today button I find it to me a non issue.

I hear you. Its not a major issue. Just don't see the logic of having to tap one extra time to get to the today agenda. When I open the calendar, I not trying to look at a past event, more times than not I want to see today.

This is why the today summary is an option in the notification center. So you can see your daily calendar and weather in 1 place.

I only use the calendar app when I need to add a new event. Otherwise I rely on the today/tomorrow summaries in the notification center.

Do you mean the Calendar Day View in Notification Center (perhaps in addition to Today Summary and Tomorrow Summary) as the summaries themselves don't often provide that much information about the day overall or even some of the specifics (at least not until the time gets closer to them sometimes). That said, I don't think either one shows much for all-day events, which is quite unfortunate and is a decently sized omission (whether on purpose or not) for a lot of people.

For me (on iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1), if the Calendar app is not on the recent apps list and its state isn't saved then launching it shows the last view I used (let's say Monthly with a list of events at the bottom) and has today as the selected day. However, if the Calendar app is on the recent apps list and its state is saved then going to it brings it up with whatever the last day I was looking at as the one being selected.

yea, you nailed it exactly. I'm usually in the day view and look at the events that way. If I close it out and don't open Calendar back up until next week, it opens up to the last day I was looking on. No biggie since you can just tap today and get back to where you want to go but I'm surprised I would have to do that.
