Still no all-day events in the notification center?

    Really? This just baffles my mind. Most of my events are all-day events, so the calendar on this OS is utterly useless.

    Will third party calendar apps have access to the drop down for a widget?

    It's always baffled me as well.
    Why Apple took out this feature is a mystery.
    I have sent Apple feedback on this a number of times asking for it to be implemented. I was hoping it was going to be put back in to iOS8 but no.
    Here's hoping that a 3rd party calendar app can implement it.

    Shame on you Apple.

    iOS 7 was showing birthdays. I'm pretty sure iOS 8 does this as well.
    But yes, that full day events aren't displayed is stupid.

    Fantastical puts all-day events in Notification Center as well. I don't have much use for third-party calendars, but it was worth it for this one feature.

    Fantastical brings a couple of other things to the table as well.

    First, one app instead of going to two different apps to see/edit reminders and calendar events.

    Pre-iOS8, the stock apps didn't do custom repeats (e.g. "on the 3rd Thursday of the month...").

    Stock calendar still does not allow assigning a timezone to an event. And does not allow more than two alerts. All of which can be done via OS X Calendar on the desktop and Fantastical on mobile.
