    Not sure when you'd use one versus the other.

    in terms of the tablets, android apps come in packages, so you are basically talking about the same thing. just different names for it.

    Okay. I recently downloaded a couple of apps to my Nook Tablet, and when I selected the notification for each one it gave me the choice of either App Install or Package Install. So I always pick Package Install?
