    I would love to see this as well. Wouldn't it be similar to the clock mod?

    That would be pretty cool but then where would your notifications go?

    Maybe it could be something small just like month/day as in 11/13

    i think the notifications can override the date (i.e. when there are no notifications, the date shows "11/13"; when you have notifications, they show and the date does not).

    I would like to see it with like an 11/13 that is always there regardless of notifications, possibly next to the existing time or possibly to the far left.

    OR

    I would like to see it as the full date "November 13,2010" exactly like it is now but always showing unless you have a notification and then notifications would override the display of the date.

    Just brainstorming anyways....

    the easiest thing I've found so far is that just by tapping the notification bar the date shows in full covering up the notifications. I know this doesn't solve it and an app would be nice.

    names?

    I used search terms "calender notification bar" in the market and at least 2 popped up. I'm sure there's more with other search terms.

    Nice little app. Installed and will use until my ADHD kicks in and I need to do something else.
