You can use WP menu builder to build menus

Mobile devices are becoming more popular and useful as they get smarter. Nowadays, if you do not have a mobile friendly version of your WordPress blog or website, you actually waive a substantial volume of potential traffic. Employing the services of a professional developing company in order to create exclusive Android and iOS apps may be pretty expensive and time consuming; however, there are many simple, fast and economical solutions available on the web. Some platforms provide you with tools and services to create mobile friendly sites within a few minutes, other offer responsive themes; but if you already have a WordPress blog you have been promoting, and you want to display an optional mobile version of it, all you need is a special mobile WordPress plugin. The following list focuses on WordPress plugins that turn your existing WordPress blog into Android and iOS apps.

Best WordPress Plugins for Creating a Mobile Version of Your Blog
