Apache Cordova

Cordova is an excellent hybrid mobile app development platform that lets you build mobile apps targeted to multiple platforms. It is free to use, simple to set up, allows you access to device features through plugins and the app performance is comparable to native apps as well. Implementing very complex animations smoothly can be a bit of a challenge. But if you are doing utility apps which focus more on features and don't go crazy with animations, there is nothing that you can't achieve with a cordova based app.

Contentful

If you have a large amount of content that you want to store and categorize all of your content, then this is a great tool for you. Also if you want to speed up your time for page creation, this is a great resource for you. Just be sure that you have some dev help to get everything set up so that you can go full steam.

Alternatives Considered

PhoneGap is another viable option but lacks the amount of support Apache Cordova receives rendering it worthless.
Andrew Shingleton profile photo
Contentful was the most user-friendly platform that everyone in our company could understand. It doesn't have the integrations that WordPress does, but it was easier for everyone in our organization to use. We've also seen good ranking and traffic from the pages created in Contentful compared to other platforms that we've used.
