Package & Sign - applies code signing keys to your compiled app. Use this for producing your "production build"
Package & Launch - DOES NOT sign your app. This features is intended to be used to deploy an app to a simulator, or to a live device that has a debug token installed.
Perhaps the wording for these buttons need to be improved to help developers clarify the results of these features? If you would like to submit any suggestions / feedback, please feel free to file an issue for Ripple here: https://github.com/blackberry/Ripple-UI/issues
