There are several kinds of APP and scripts you can deploy with Intune, which include Store APPs, Build your app(LOB), office 365 Suite, Web Apps, built-in APPs.

You probably can guess from the name except the Build your app(LOB), which stands for line-of-business app and includes the files with extensions .msi, .appx, .appxbundle, .msix, and .msixbundle .  Admins who experienced with deploying APPs via GPO probably will easily recognise these extensions.
