I just started to load the iOS app IETFers with my slot preferences.

This is broken by the timezone difference that makes IETF days straddling the calendar days where I live (CEST = B = UTC+0200).

There seems to be no way to get at the Fri 2300-2500Z meeting at all, as Saturday 31st is not an IETF day.

Other late slots are moved to the next day on my view, which is more than mildly confusing.

Fortunately, I can switch off “Use Local Time”, so there is a workaround.

How are other people coping?
