SAP Fiori launchpad is a shell that hosts SAP Fiori apps, and provides the apps with services such as navigation, personalization, embedded support, and application configuration.
SAP Fiori launchpad is the entry point to SAP Fiori apps on mobile and desktop devices. The launchpad displays a home page with tiles, which can display live status indicators, such as the number of open tasks. Each tile represents a business application that the user can launch. The launchpad is role-based, displaying tiles according to the user’s role.
The home page is the main entry point to SAP Fiori apps on mobile and desktop devices. The page features tiles that allow the user to launch apps and may show additional information. The page can be personalized and tiles can be added, removed, or bundled in groups.
For more information, see home page.
A tile is a container that represents an app on the SAP Fiori launchpad home page. Tiles are used for launching apps and presenting them on the launchpad.

The app finder is an “app store”-like interface that lists all the apps that a user might potentially use. The app finder replaces the tile catalog.
