Why does Amazon web site show release date instead of updated date?

When viewing search results for apps on the Amazon under "apps for Android", the apps are displayed with the original release dare very prominent. This makes it looks like some apps are very outdated when in fact they have recently been updated. This is especially harmful to time-sensitive apps like travel guides that get quickly out of date. Why is Amazon punishing older apps?

The date is going to be removed from the search page in the near future. Thanks for pointing this out.
