I could be mistaken, but I recall that from the details screen of an application you could view the "Description" of the application.
Now it seems the only way to view the description field is if you edit the application, which you can only do if you have edit rights, which probably means you already know what the app does because you made it. 🙂
Can we add it back to the details screen? Even the COE app referenced the "details" screen to modify the description field if it is empty.
