I want to be able to open documents that are housed in SharePoint 2013 Foundations using Office Web app. Is this subscription based or a free app? Do I have to institute an app server?

It is free,  MIcrosoft has a guide for integrating it with Sharepoint http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219435%28v=office.15%29.aspx

So it looks like I do need to start up an APP server. Looks pretty involved. Is this the case or just Microsoft being too verbose?

They have to cover all bases which makes for the verbosity

We are a one server farm for sharepoint so not a big deployment here. Using SharePoint Foundations 2013. Taking a look now at the article you posted. This will more than likely create more questions. For instance, can I install the APP server on the same server that SharePoint is running on?

When I go to check my installation by entering http://servername/hosting/discovery I get a HTTP 404 Not Found error. How do I even start to trouble shoot this. I've done most everything via PowerShell.

OK. I changed the http://servername/hosting/discovery and now get a HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error instead.
I ran the following in PowerShell and the error still showed.

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:IIS-ASPNET45

Anything thoughts how to trouble shoot?

This answered one question I had but ultimately I was still stopped with an error. I am going to reinstall both my webapps server and my sharepoint server to see if that helps get the MS Office WebApps up.
