The Add-On Manager displays all add-ons that are properly installed in the add-ons installation folder, as well as MATLAB products and hardware support packages. If you have an app or toolbox installed before R2015b, import it for use with R2015b and later by opening the Add-On Manager and clicking Import.

Run Apps

To run an app after you install it, go to the Apps tab and expand the apps gallery by clicking the down arrow to the far right. Then, navigate to your installed app and click the icon. Custom apps that you write or receive from someone else appear in the My Apps section. You can run multiple custom apps concurrently, including multiple instances of the same app.
