We should expose the app version number in App Permissions.

Right now it is suggested to look at the manifest ourselves if we are root, but sometimes we are not root.

e.g. I downloaded LINE 1.0.2.1, but right now 1.0.2.1.1 seems to be the latest and I don't know if I have the latest without checking for updates.

We should do it.

Tina, could you find the UI spec for this? (might be located in new security related panels design)

I think it's a new feature. I've attached the latest permission spec and NI Tiffanie if she can help this.

Hey Tina - thanks for flagging me.

I'm removing the attachment and replacing with a Box link. We avoid attaching specs directly to bugs as it becomes a management nightmare when specs have to get updated. :)

Please note that this spec was 2.5 related work that didn't get implemented. As far as I know there are no plans to implement in 2.6 so it has not been updated.

Sorry for the confusion, I updated the spec with a descoped label.

As for adding the version to the app page - do it! :)
