Designing/writing an app - GraphQL?

Hello Shopify community & members,

     I would like to design/write an app that mimics the basic functionality of the e-commerce website.  The app would be free to install for anyone, preferably compatible with all android & iphone devices.  As a result, any smart phone user could download the app for free, and purchase a product off of the e-commerce website.  I do not require the app to be added to Shopify's app store, but would like to install it to Google Play Store.


Can I use GraphQL to do this?  Or is that only for Shopifys app store?  Also, I am assuming this needs to be made a public app and not a private app?


If GraphQL cannot be used, are there any other recommendations?
