The iPad app will do the grouping a bit differently instead of the Mac's "logarithmic" grouping (bigger groups as you get farther away from today), everything is grouped day by day. If you tap and hold on the triangle at the upper right corner of each group, you'll have options to collapse/expand that group or all groups.
This is great. So simple.

Curious, though. I see that, at least at this moment, I have a "Started Yesterday" "Start Today" I imagine that if there were items that had a start date previously they'd appear in a "group" and up to me to manage such things.

Since posting I also tried this (but something is weird):

Context View Sidebar selection: Contexts
Context Filter: Remaining
Grouping: Context
Sorting: Project
Avail Filter: Available
Status Filter: Any
Time: Any

Seeems to show me all my tasks starting today or yesterday but also includes some tasks without start dates, but I'm not sure if it's all of tasks w/o dates.

So where is OF getting this data. What does "available" really mean and do I have to tell OF something is "available" or what logic does it use to determine "available"
