I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes.  That's how it's normally done.  You set up your Apple ID and password, install iTunes, browse the store and install.  Some apps are free, some are paid.

Oh, I see what you mean....no, you must do it from the device.  You can't "Push" them to the device.  At least I've never heard of it being done that way.

Changes in the new iTunes


The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks. Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are now exclusively available in the new App Store for iOS. And the new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and redownload apps—all without a Mac or PC.

There is a good explanation of why this happened here https://www.quora.com/Does-iTunes-backup-the-entire-iPhone-OS-or-only-the-apps
Apple originally backed up everything, including apps, back in the days of iPhone OS 2.0, but quickly realized that this was creating needlessly large backups, and that the backup process was taking far longer than was practical for most users. So, Apple took the approach of realizing that since apps could be re-downloaded from the App Store anyway, there was no point in backing these up. At that point, only the application data was backed up, with settings files that indicated which apps are installed on the device so that these apps could be automatically restored.

You need to switch from iOS to Android OS if you want to push the app to the tablet.

I had to redo the entire setup again and set it up on a different wireless. That was the issue.  The wireless wasn't allowing me to connect to the app store.
