it would be nice to have application manager which lists all apps installed where you can see version information, summary info of the app, just like in N9

Actually, you can see the store installed apps from the store (pull left, "My apps"), from which you can see if they are up to date or remove them. You cannot check the version number, though.

Now that I checked it, I foud out that it only works when online. Which may be a problem.

application manager is a must, something like n9 app manager will do!

You mean something like this but for the jolla store: https://openrepos.net/content/basil/warehouse

not just for jolla store, i care none for the store. I want the application manager like N9 had it. lists all apps installed regardless of source and shows the version number!

This might not be just what you wanted, but here goes...

Actually Sailfish appears to have a package management system - PackageKit. If you really want to get every package installed, you can query the package manager from a root terminal ("devel-su") using a program called pkcon:

# pkcon --filter=installed search name [a-z] | more

Nope. This app does something completely different. It show running apps and their CPU and RAM usage.
