What is the difference between

When packaging an app in App Designer, I always get three output folders:
The appplication found in for_redistribution must be installed before use.
The application found in for_testing can be run immediately without the need for installation (also on a pc without Matlab).
The second options seems more practical, because when updating the application in a shared folder regularly, then the users don't need to reinstall it. So I wonder, what is the difference between those two applications, as they both seem to be working perfectly fine, with the sole difference being the need for installation (or not).

This was the page I was looking for. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide a real answer (to my insight) on why the testing app works perfectly well for non-Matlab users, and why then the installation of the distribution app would be necessary... Or it might be that my app is "simple" enough that it makes no difference.
