  • Hi,

    First, applications are primarily designed for user deployments, while packages are primarily designed for device deployments. You can still use packages for user deployments and applications for device deployments – the settings in each type are just more geared for one versus the other. Either of these types can also be installed using required deployments, either for user or device.

    Second, applications can utilize the new approval request feature. This is the feature that allows the administrator to deploy applications to a wider user base, while still maintaining license control.

    Third, applications provide a much greater level of detail when looking at the application’s deployment status. It pulls up error codes, and also has more categories of statuses.

    Fourth, the application feature can deploy apps to devices that are in the Apple App Store (for iOS devices), Google Play store (Android devices) or the Windows Store (for Windows Phone or Windows 8). This allows administrators to provide these apps in a managed format.
