I created an app for Sharepoint and deployed it to app catalog on our intranet. App is created with Visual Studio. I can't find where I can add description for app so that it's packaged with the app. I looked into AppManifest.xml but can't find anything there. This is probably a really easy question to answer if you know where to look.

When you upload the app to app catalog site, there you get the option to provide description. Short Description and Description.

So there's no option to package the description with the app in Visual Studio? – kaalen Mar 26 '14 at 9:42
No I don't think so. – Garima Mar 26 '14 at 10:25
