In another question I was asked which Calendar application I was running on my Android 2.2 Samsung Galaxy S phone.

I found the Applications - Manage applications setting, but that shows only the version if you click on an appication, and this doesn't show which company created it.

Is there a standard application which gives me this info: e.g. name of application, version nr and manufacturer ?

Or if no standard application is available, any recommendations ?

It seems to me that a lot of questions in this forum should benefit of people specifying in their question which version of which program they are asking questions about, no ?

For applications installed from Market, you can go to Market > Downloads for application name and developer info; however built-in applications (e.g. Phone, Calendar, other applications installed by default) often are not shown in Market list (neither will they show in Manage Application either).
