    Hi,
    I did not have time to post this question yesterday:
    Did anyone notice a crooked Friday on the Calendar icon just above the number 4?
    Kind of cute and human.

    Not tilted here. I took a screenshot, blew it up, and measured the distance from the top of the "r" to the top edge of the icon frame and then from the top of the "y" to the top of the icon frame. They were the same.

    Maybe it's just an optical illusion for you. Since Friday is the shortest word (I'm assuming it's not a fixed-width font) the tail of the "y" ends up over the date creating the illusion. Just a guess.

    What are you talking about? It's not tilted...

    Maybe post a screenshot?

    I saw it too, but I agree with Sital: illusion. The tail of the "y" is lower than the top of the "F" so the short word appears to be tilting downward. Temporarily set your phone to Wednesday, and you'll see no tilt. Or just magnify Friday...

    People, what illusion you are talking about?
    This is exactly how is tilted - the way mrgraff showed. It's so obvious. On every Friday is like that.
    Why would anyone switch to Wed. if it's Friday? Just to make it look straight?

    Unless I'm falling for a really good troll...

    My picture was intended to demonstrate to you that it isn't tilted. The grid overlay helps you to see that the tops of "F i d" line up, and "r a y" line up. Changing to the date to a Wednesday simply proves that the illusion is being caused by a short word.
