When you say "app", are you talking about App Designer?
Regardless, most apps (either programmatic or created with App Designer) have a single function you can call to create an instance of that app. All you need to do is set up a callback on the button in one app to call that command for another app.
Or is your question about how to get an app to display the current date and time?

Does it need to be an app, or does uiconfirm do what you need?
fig = uifigure;
uiconfirm(fig,"Your log-in time is: " + string(datetime),'Logged-In', ...
'Options',{'OK'},'Icon','success');
