Difference between LoRa_APP and LoRaWAN_APP

Sorry if this is a basic question. I am trying to integrate a CubeCell into a wireless mesh network protocol that is NOT using LoRaWAN (instead it relies on the PHY layer to connect the radio and send/receive packets). I see most examples use LoRaWAN_APP even when not actually connecting to a LoRaWAN network.
What’s the difference with LoRa_APP module, can I use that instead of the LoRaWAN module?
