There are several ways to publish an App.
One way is to visit the Apps page. Scroll to the App you'd like to publish, then click on the Quick Links icon (the three dots at the end of the row) and select Publish.

Once you click the Publish button the Publish Options screen will display allowing you to select which user groups and users you wish to give access to the app.
You can also click on the name of the App you'd like to publish, which will take you to the App Settings page. From there, you can click on Publish App in the Current Status area:

Assigning a published App to users
Once an App has been published, you can select which users will have access to the published App. You will typically be prompted to do this after choosing to publish, but if you aren't, you can use the Quick Link icon and choosing Assign, which will bring you to the list of users for your account.
