You can easily set up a captive setup network with installers and
instructions on it, but no trivial way to get someone to install
an (properly authenticated) app. If you manage somehow to give
access to the Play Store, then you've not got a captive portal any
more. Or you have to ask them to permit installing non-official
apps, which is a) a big security risk for them (lots of people
will never disable it) and b) you may as well just give them
instructions on configuring the wireless themselves.

There's just no reason for an app to be required at all, if only
the O/S had a built in configuration profile method.
