Confuse about what is API-only or Managed Package?


when iam approach to My ISV AE regarding Business Org(APO) for uploading my APP to AppExchange.

i got a reply from him as

"I manage ISV Partners in the Tri-state area. Are you looking to be in the program? Is your application an API-only or Managed Package"

im confuse with his reply so can any one make it clear and what is difference b/n  API-only or Managed Package?

Managed packages install Salesforce Metadata into customer's orgs.  Objects, Pages, Apex.
API only apps interact with customer data ONLY via the API.  They don't install any metadata.
