It would just be logical to add the ability to download mods by themselves instead of modpacks for the app.
Minecraft requires specific modloading to enjoy in-game mods.Mod Management without modloading via Modpacks is akin to browsing, filtering and downloading from the CurseForge website, which is available for you.As Zwamdurkel mentioned, creating your own profile and assigning the modloader is simple using the app.
If you make a custom profile you can download whichever combination of individual mods you want by pressing "Add More Content". I personally can't imagine a case where you'd want to download mods and not put them in a profile. Of course, more features are always welcome :)
