The App Portal is the central repository for all applications that are going to be administered by the Silverback System. Here you can add public App Store applications or upload your organization owned Enterprise applications. Applications purchased with the Volume Purchase Program will be imported automatically to the App Portal and for your corporate Managed Play Store running on Android Enterprise, the App Portal is the starting point for adding your Managed Play applications. In general, the App Portal is structured in Device Types and displays the following information for each added application.

|Name||Displays the friendly name of the application.|
|Version||Displays the current version of the application.|
|Description||Displays the application description. Application descriptions for App Store, Enterprise and Volume Purchase Program applications are shown in the App Portal Web Clip on devices.

|Application Feedback||Displays a message-centric bird's eye view of collected feedbacks for applications that are using the application feedback channel capability on Android Enterprise, indicated by an notification icon.

The overview contains the received messages, an indication for the severity, a device drill down option and the policy name and the policy path, organized and optimized for the provided application feedback message keyed app state.|
