    Currently, if you have an MXD file underlying a web map and a web app, and the MXD file has multiple layers in the TOC, you cannot control the individual MXD layers on/off state like you can in the web map. Your option is to create individual map services for each individual MXD layer which is much more work. Not sure why it makes sense to let you control individual MXD layers in a web map but not if you choose to turn it into a web app.
