It can give you a heart attack as well. Everything is configured correctly still apps are not working. The SPFarm property CustomAppRedirect value is false or not set error can occur while working with apps. You need to use uslviewer to get this error. I hope you know how to use ulsviewer.

After installing security patch provider hosted app page shows “You are being redirected to the following URL that was not registered as the app launch URL"

https://xx?SPHostUrl=xx&SPLanguage=enSPClientTag=0&SPProductNumber=xx&SPAppWebUrl=xx&{AppContextToken}

If you trust this URL, click here to proceed to the app now. Otherwise, go back to the previous page or close this page.
