In addition, the company will process the comments below highlight those that are most relevant and which have received the best reviews from the community.
The new store will display the application version, the date of the last update or the list of compatible devices, at least the first time. In his blog, Microsoft writes that they are working to ensure that this information became available with future updates of the Store. And while the company encourages developers to add this information in the description of the application each time you publish an update.
