Get app metadata from within the app

We need the ability to get various metadata about the app using formula.  For example it woud be great to display the version number and relelase date of the app rather than manually adding them in a text field.

App.Version is an intuitive way to get the version number. 

App.Version could default to returning the same as App.Version.Number.

The variables displayed in the Apps version screen:

https://make.powerapps.com/environments/<envid>/apps/<appid>/versions

 

should be available - and maybe a few others

App.Version.Number
App.Version.Created
App.Version.CreatedBy

App.Version.Modified

App.Version.ModifiedBy

App.Version.PowerAppsVersion

App.Version.Published

App.Version.Comments
