After downloading Away Messages, the app doesn’t show up?

That is because this is an iMessage app only.  Apple has created a whole new experience allowing apps to run right in a iMessage conversation.  Check out this step by step guide to find/enable Away Messages.

(For future reference Apple label’s iMessage only apps in the App Store in two ways, it says “iMessage app only” under the app icon and the app icon is a different shape then non iMessage apps.)

Does Away Messages send text response automatically?

No it does not.  Currently Apple doesn’t allow apps to send text messages for a user.  For safety/privacy reasons they don’t allow this, they don’t want apps to spam others on your behalf.  Away Messages instead does the next best thing, which is save you time by storing your information and generating your “Away Messages” message for you in a tap of a button.
