The word 'Apps' is used in two ways:
1: Mobile Apps - Devices
2: Desktop Apps - Computers
Yes, I get that, but are Desktop Apps, full programs, like they would be if you would buy a software disk and install it?
Adobe some uses confusing terminology in their effort to explain things.
Cloud desktop apps are the same as buying the software on disk in the pre-Cloud days. e.g. the Photoshop Cloud desktop app is the full version of Photoshop CC 2015.
