If it starts and just sits there then it is running as an application..if it disappears into the background and you can still see it running using

ps aux app_name

then it is running as a daemon.

From what you said it is running as an app.

Strictly speaking, there's no such thing as an application process.  A daemon is simply a process that detaches itself from the terminal and runs in the background.
