    It is an interesting idea however, there are some complications. Particularly we need to make one for the Main Site and the forums. I am not opposed to the idea however, there are improvements being made to the site for mobile devices. Currently, while it's responsive there are some design issues that many here can attest too.

    The main thing is there are some design things we need to get done on the actual websites. Also what kind of app.

    You can easily create a web view app (hell there are online generators for it). The issue is this is like having the browser open without a browser its like clicking chrome (minus the UI and junk) and the website pops up. So what would go into this app, etc etc. Also Xenforo doesn't have a native API to hook into. WordPress has the RestAPI (only version 1 not 2 in core) so we can't do anything other than a basic web view with maybe some push notifications. (through something like push bullet).

    The issue with this issss we need to improve our mobile appearance a little more for web view to be worth our time. I have thought about it I have it in mind it's just something that needs a little bit of work. I did get a new theme and design ideas for the forum that is more mobile friendly and more in line with the community I just need to add (the chat, advertisements, finish changes, etc then we can look at web view apps.

    I hope that helps.

    There is no reason for mobile app, but what you make is version of site for mobile phones.
