The Joomla! Admin Mobile application now supports 3rd party plugins. This capability means the functionality and data users can access from their iPad, iPhone, and Android devices is unlimited.
How JAM Plugins Work:
JAM plugins are a specific type of Joomla! plugin that are able to communicate with the JAM component. When the user accesses their site through the JAM application, the application communicates with the component installed on their site. When accessing the 3rd party plugins through the application, the application sends its requests to the component which then communicates with the individual plugins and returns the requested data.
This means the functionality and data that can be accessed from the JAM appliation is unlimited. If there is anything (files, database tables, etc) you want to access from your site or server from your mobile device, it can be done through a JAM plugin.
