Making an app is expensive and a lot of work, so it won't be happening in the foreseeable future. The mobile version of the site will be getting a massive upgrade next year (along with the rest of the site), and it's possible that we may possibly also add some extra features that make the site provide an even more native-like experience. Those extra things haven't been confirmed and rely on some other changes that are not at all certain, so I'm not in a position to discuss what they are at this time though.

There isn't any official app. There's TapaTalk which is the ad you see while accessing mobile site. And there's unofficial android app which is basicly YT listing and link to forums and maybe to twitter.

They aren't programmers so they would need to buy that as service from someone else. Also support for that would need to be official and they don't have enough personel for that. So currently anything official is under ice. You are free the develope (or contact oodBytes if you have skills) your own, unofficial one.
For forum use, you can either use mobile theme or TapaTalk. For videos, either Vessel mobile or YT mobile.

App development requires a lot of time, effort and money. That's not to say that it will never happen, but it isn't high on our priorities at the moment.
The mobile version of the site works well enough in my experience, and if you want a more native experience, we do support tapatalk.

However, that's not to say that there won't be an API for the forum, just that it won't be built in (that's also not to say that there will be one, though it's certainly something I am planning to look into).
An app takes a lot of work, and it wouldn't add a huge amount. The mobile version of the forum will be improved significantly later in the year, hopefully making an app redundant.
There is currently no app in development with forum integration (and I don't know about apps without forum integration), but it's not impossible that one will be developed at some point.

When we update to the next version of the forum software later this year, the mobile version of the site will be massively updated to match the functionality of the full site. @Syntaxvgm the front page is being worked on, just that the work is being done behind the scenes. It will be released at some point this year (hopefully).
As for an app, all I know for certain at the moment is that LinusMediaGroup are aware of the growing need to develop an app.
