Hello! If I install this app and select Swedish, does the keyboard and the language of the phone change to swedish? And does this work for iPhone 1.1.4 ?

It's a great app, but there is some confusion. Region Format shouldn't be the same as language. I'm in Norway and I wanted to have 24-hour-time, phone numbers in the Norwegian format (XXXXXXXX) etc.but NOT days of the week in Norwegian. Even though I only changed the format to Norwegian but kept the language setting at English, the days of the week are now in Norwegian... Any suggestions as to how to avoid that??? Regards Bardss
