To make this question clear, we will go through these points of Drupal for mobile applications.
1. Flexible and Simple to use
Integration is made streamlined in Drupal's core RESTful Web Services module. This makes it simple for other apps to read and update information on your website through the Web. REST supports GET/POST/PATCH/DELETE features and integrates authentication system automatically which is easy to apply to modules and resources.

Drupal permits users to manage useful data and isolate it from the rest. It is a perfect CMS for news and consultants, as it is completely adaptable to your requirements, as allows customization of the behavior of a block by building modules.
3. Drupal has main supportive SKD’s and Libraries for mobile app development such as:
