Hello,

We are considering purchase Kunena mobile forum extension, but have some questions.
The situation is as follows:

We are mobile development firm and have a client who would like to have a mobile app for his website. The site is created on Joomla CMS and has Kunena forum extension installed. Client is interested in adding chat and forum to his app and some third party features like GPS tracking etc. which won't be available on website itself. 

Since we are specializing in custom mobile application development we have not been working with such kind of extensions and unfortunately cannot predict if it will work as needed.

So the questions are:
- As we have understood we need to install mobile joomla before adding Kunena mobile extension? How it can influence the website and what challenges are common in such cases?
- Then we need to add purchased  Kunena mobile to mobile Joomla and it should to work with the forum we already have, am I right? The information published will be displayed at mobile app.
- And the most serious question: If we are developing application and adding functionality to it can we use Kunena as some-kind of addon for our application which will work under button or tab inside our app?

The app we are developing is server based, but website won't include functionality we will add there. 

Also does the Kunena mobile support video and photo upload, display and comment? 
The app will be quite social so we need to know it as well.

Kunena Mobile requires both MobileJoomla extension and Elegance template.
After installing above extensions (and tune MJ settings), you will have special mobile version of website for mobile users.

Yes.

Actually, if you create native app, it's better to grab Kunena's page, parse in the app, and display as you like. Alternatively, you can create a plugin to get forum data in any suitable format (e.g. xml or json).
The problem of Kunena Mobile is that it is base on jQueryMobile framework, so your app will load much more data in UIWebView than it can be with using of native code.

It displays photo/video, but uploading is not supported yet.
