Function to retrieve App ID

I'd really like a function within Canvas Apps to retrieve the App ID of the app I am currently in.


Currently there are a number of features which rely on the App ID to join the dots. We are able to retrieve this from outside of the app via its metadata. It would make for easier and simplier development if the app could be 'self aware' through calling a function such as AppID.()


This would allow me to write a formula such as Set(thisApp, AppID.())

@Lachlan_w  - I just watched your video and I have to say this is **brilliant**.  I am not a programmer, just the lone IT guy at a small nonprofit, building my first PowerApp.  Ran into this very issue this morning, so I did a Bing search "get the version number of a power apps app" and Bingo - your video was at the top of the list.  I especially appreciated you taking the time to explain things step by step.  Reminds me of the kind of community at one of my favourite places on the Internet.  If I could upvote this suggestion a thousand times, I'd do it.  Thanks for everything. 👍👍
