App Store The App Store is where you'll get your apps from. You can also see existing versions to re-use, instead of installing new ones. Learn more about the App Store here.
App Toolbar The bar at the top of each app is called App Toolbar. There you have a set of options for interacting with that app. Check in-depth answer about it.

Container Containers are placeholders. There is a hierarchy of them, and they can contain more containers or apps. A description for each of them follows below.
Container - Block A block is the most general container. It spans the whole width of the browser, and within it you can have sections.
Container - Column A column is the most specific of containers. They are found within sections. You can split them and have more columns in the same horizontal row (section). But you can't have more columns stacked vertically. Inside columns you can install apps.
Container - Section Sections remain centered within your layout, and are always contained inside a block. You can consider a section as a row for columns.
Edit in Place Toolbar This is the toolbar that appears when editing text. With it, you can format your text to be bolded, italic, underlined, or add/edit links, etc. In some cases you can even insert images, but that depends on the app itself that you're editing. Learn more.
