Android Market now shows version numbers in reviews
The Android Market just got a new trick to make reviews more useful. Now, reviews have extra information to help users figure out what reviews are most relevant to them with device and app version numbers.

Android Market now shows version numbers in reviews
Of couse, the iTunes App Store has been putting app versions with reviews for a while, and even better, it offers options to see only reviews for the newest version of the app. Unfortunately, while the Android Market now has device names and app version numbers on each review, there are no sorting options to go along with the new information. We'd love to be able to see only reviews that match devices associated with our Google accounts, but maybe that's next up on Google's plan for the Market. 

Still, this is a nice addition, and shows that Google is keeping up the pace on adding features to the Market. It'll be nice to be able to make sure the info is the most relevant by matching the app version with what you're using.
