    Yes when I try to show the month view for March 2013 it crashes. February and April are fine so what is the problem?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    This is a glitch with the Calendar, do you have an all day event for April 1st. In some areas it's a holiday, change the event to give it a time rather than being an all day event or just delete it and this should fix it.....let us know how you go.

    I had the same problem, because April 1, 2013 is Easter Monday. (Austrian holiday calendar). Just solved it. Thanks! :)

    I too had the problem, the only way I could delete the April 1st all day event was to de-select the UK Holidays calendar, I will reselect it once we have got to April. Thanks

    Sent here by Johanna from Austria (THANKS) but I can't see the logic of why just March? I've removed the Facebook calendar which seems to have worked :)

    Who knows why only March.....have you considered its caused by April 1st events, April Fools Day. ;)

    Thank you for letting us know that removing the FB calendar is also another workaround.

    Could be somebody at Apple with a warped sense of 'April Fool' joke! If it is, it is certainly no joke! ;)

    Well well well. I get exactly the same. The calendar crashes when I try to open March 2013 in month view. That month, and only that month!

    My work around is to select weekly views, navigate into March. The daily, weekly and year views from within March are OK. As soon as I switch to monthly view from a date in March 2013, things crash!

    To quote Shakespeare. "Beware of the ides of March"! :)

    OK. I will now read the rest of this thread for other ideas for fixes.

    EDIT. I don't have Facebook calendar as an app.

    Yup, changing the event Easter Monday from an all day event into a short event of an hour or so has done the trick.

    The calendar works without crashing out of the monthly view for March.

    Thanks. :)

    Hi Richard,
    Tried this but I cannot get the day to open for editing. All it says I'd 'Details' and all day event. No way can I edit it. Can you tell me exactly what you did please? It really is annoying.
    Cheers,
    Mike

    OK. I opened list view and scrolled down to April.

    Then I double tapped Easter Monday to Callum the edit item dialogue box.

    image-2340810237.jpg

    I then switched the all day event option off.

    I left the 1 hour times lot offered up, tapped done, tapped done and voila!

    HTH
