Setting English will default everything to English/USA. The way Android works is that you basically pick a 'country'. Using Default does not set a language and device date style is used.
GCDroid still decides if a long or short format should be used but the look and feel is defined by the device. English is the default language of the app and will be used if no other supported language can be found.

Anyways, it works as expected, BUT we could open a new request to have option to select date and time format (eg. DD.MM.YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY and AM/PM vs 24h).

If you feel this would help please open a new feature request. Closing this bug report since it works as intended under the given limitations.

I am still using the old app, but my date format has always been MM/DD/YYYY I think, or maybe DD/MM/YYYY. Both are wrong to me since I am used to ISO standard. This has always been troublesome since I never know if DD or MM is first (since both formats exists in the world).

Yes, looks like if you choose english it is english(US). 
If you choose Defaul/Device it should be fixed.

Just tested it.

As language within GCDroid? It would be nice if it had its own setting actually. I doubt all English speaking countries has the same date formats. Personally I run almost everything in English, yet I still want a Swedish date format (for example).

If you choose Default/Device, in the language setting of GCDroid, it will use your Smartphone language setting.

I am using default. But I can't find anywhere in Android where I can set a date format. Neither can I figure out any place where I would see which date format the phone actually uses. Every place I look at seem to use a longer format; "Apr 12 2019", "Fri Apr 29"...
