There is nothing to stop you using the SBB App to buy Supersaver tickets or the Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/on edaytravelpass/details) for that matter. If the Saver Day Pass is a cheaper option for your trip the SBB app will offer you that choice.
In the SBB App you can edit the passenger details to indicate if you are travelling full fare (1/1) or half-fare (1/2). The half-fare setting is probably the default as Lucas says. 1/2 fare is only relevant if you have a Swiss Half Fare Card or if you want to buy a 50% discount ticket and travel with the Swiss Travel Pass. But in most cases it is best to buy at the station.
Just be careful with Supersaver Tickets. If you buy one and miss the specific train you will need to buy another ticket.
As Lucas pointed out the App does not cope with any tickets that are discounted 25% with the Swiss Travel Pass.
