    I have an input where the type is date.  In the simulator, the input value displays "--/--/----" with up/down arrows/etc (see attached file).  It does not show the date which I've set it too.  On native devices, the date shows up fine.  Is this a problem with the simulator?

    Hello Bill,

    The date should take the format YYYY-MM-DD. Single digit days and months should be padded with a 0. Your code should be altered to:

    <input type="date" value="2013-01-07"> 

    An input with the date format you've specified does not work on both Android and iOS devices on our end.
