I think it would be good to make a seperate community app for this forum. It would allow us to be notified of messages, topics, likes etc in real time.
There are a few ways out there currently which allow this type of thing without the need for an entirely new app.
You can download the Discourse app from your app store. This will allow you to connect to this community and recieve push notifications directly in the app.
You can also add the community to your home screen (although I don’t think that provides any notifications unless turned on in browser). This will make it look like an app but within the wrapper of your browser.
Along with what Thomas said, it just wouldn’t be worth a separate community app as the discourse app already does basically the exact same thing. You can also have multiple forums on the discourse app.
I never knew these existed. Thanks for letting me know.
