Why is there a Discourse app?

I tried out the Discourse app on my Android device and I could not find any differences between it and browsing Discourse on my phone’s Google Chrome app. In fact, it seems the Discourse app just runs an instance of Chrome to browse the forums.

Is there any reason we have an app other than the start screen of the app, which provides a hub users can use to access all of their Discourse forums from one place?

I understand it to be for push notifications, see here and here
