Bug: dates in iOS app
I've observed a minor bug in the way the Beeminder iOS app is handling dates.
Let's say it's 20 Feb and I enter the following data:
This immediately shows up in the list of data points as:
The graph is drawn correctly and back on the website the graph and data points are correct, but the list in the iOS app is always off by one day (with the date listed as one day ahead).
This may possibly have something to do with the fact that I'm in Australia – a time zone issue.
It's not the end of the world, but it's annoying to have to convert every date that's visible in the app's list of data points, especially since some of the things I track aren't daily activities. (And it could be a symptom of a more serious bug underneath.)
I'm a new user (New Year resolutioner!) from Australia and have noticed this bug too.
The dates are correct on my computer, but not the iPhone.
Any plans to get this fixed or is there a better solution for Aussies?

Don't worry, this hasn't been forgotten, it just didn't make it into this release. Thanks for letting us know and keeping it on our radar.
Still a problem in V2.0 of the app (in case it was supposed to have been fixed in that release)

Melbourne/Australia here, have just noticed the same behaviour as well. As above, those points entered and displayed as a day ahead in iPhone app are shown correctly in the web interface.
Just wanted to add that this happens for me as well (also in Sydney/Australia timezone). The actual data stored appears to be correct. As far as I can tell the only thing that is wrong is the display of the 3 most recent entered points under the chart in the iPhone app.
