Is a soft token the same thing as an app based token?


I’ve always referred to OTP tokens as either soft or hard tokens, until I saw Daniel Meissler’s post: https://danielmiessler.com/blog/casmm-consumer-authentication-security-maturity-model/, which lists App based 2FA separate from Token based 2FA.

Is he just calling soft tokens app tokens? Or are app tokens a 3rd category?
