Another option is Wordpress there are apps you can add to wordpress to make those sites mobile friendly also.

If you have a regular website (not attached to a blog style platform) then there are applications you can use much like a "wysiwyg" editor to make your site mobile friendly. Gomobi has made a plug-in for CPanel that makes it fairly simple to build your mobile site then connect it with a javascript. Some popular hosting companies have already integrated the GoMobi Platform, such as Hostgator and Bluehost.

Depending on your skill level... Here is another option for adding mobile capabilities.. (it's open source from what I can tell)

Then there is mobile apps. A few services I've found that offer a simple mobile app makers are;
This should get you started in the right direction when it comes to mobile compatibility.
