In this deployment sessions video I take a look at the Deeplinking process using Windows Intune to install an app on Windows RT. The deeplinking process essentially lets you place apps from the Windows Store in your own company store, or Company Portal – essentially letting you curate the best Windows Store apps for your users. You don’t need the code just a link to the app in the Windows Store, so there is nothing for you to store on your servers or in your cloud and the app publisher keeps the app up to date through the Windows Store.
The videos is, as always, split into sections:

This is a promising feature of InTune. What is REALLY required is for it to automatically push out the app from the Windows Store for each user on the device. That is what would make it truly useful. When I watch the demo, it would actually be less steps to tell users to go directly to the Windows Store and install Skype. InTune should have a fully automated way of getting these apps pushed down to the managed user device without them having to intervene.
