    It just started happening. My Tap&Track and Weather HD apps are messing up with the dates. Weather HD tell me that today is Friday 15, and Tap&Track is always telling me that todays is Thursday 14.

    Apart from that, all apps are telling me the correct date.

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    Same problem.. Possibly fixed!

    That is so strange because I was having the exact same problem, which is how I found your post, so before I posted a reply I restarted my iPhone and so far it seems as if the problem is fixed! My tap & track and my ireconcile were both showing up as "today" being October 14th, but now it is back to normal! We'll see what happens tomorrow!

    This might be related to a bug in one of the iOS frameworks (like that Daylight Savings Time alarm bug). Most apps like these get the date and time from an API called NSDate. It's possible that one of the methods is returning the wrong date under certain circumstances.

    The problem also ended up correcting itself. I also think it was restarting the app what corrected things.:)

    It do seems to be an iOS bug, but it is also strange that only two apps were the ones to have the problem. Maybe the other apps don't get the date from the API you say.
