Why isn't the date seen posted instead of "today" or "yesterday" or "last week" etc?
I use the Audubon Bird App on Kindle Fire which has "Find Birds with eBird" as part of the app. Why is the bird listed as seen "today" or "yesterday" or "last week" etc. instead of using the actual date seen? I often check what was seen in my area at night or very early in the morning before dawn. When a bird is listed as seen "today", it could have been seen the day before or two days before. The bird may have flown on if it was seen two days ago. It would seem to me that posting the actual date seen would be much more accurate.

That is the way the app was made. It doesn't have anything to do with Ebird. Ebird's API provides the records with the date but Audubon's app is changing them to "today" or "yesterday or "last week" because they apparently thought that would be more appealing. You could make a suggestion the Audubon team and maybe they would change it.
