Following my question about logs I wonder if there is a way to determine the last updates and applications which have been installed.

Does Android keep a chronological list of installed programs and updates ?

I am running Froyo 2.2.1 if that should make a difference.

AFAIK, Android Market shows the list of installed apps in chronological order. So the latest app you've installed should be on the top (first) of the list. The app that was installed before this - should be the second.

This is only so when you only have one device. And, although much more unlikely, you can install applications outside the market , or come to think of it, you could use f.i. Amazon market ( not we in Europe, but even so ). –  Edelcom Apr 29 '11 at 8:35

I use the App Brain app on my phone, https://market.android.com/details?id=com.appspot.swisscodemonkeys.apps&feature=search_result you can choose which order to show installed apps (name, date installed, size, storage location)
