What are the best plugins for messenger logistics mobile applications? Other then WordPress plugins because they can't be used in a mobile application.

What kind of "plugin" are you asking about? Plug into what? WP plugins work on the server-side, so they could certainly be used as part of a mobile app that accesses WP as its backend.

And what is a "messenger logistics" app?

- I don't understand what do you mean by "WP plugins work on the server-side" could you explain more.
- I asked the support team on WordPress and they said that I can't use WordPress plugins unless I am developing a website hosted by WordPress.
- I mean by "messenger logistics app", an app that works on monitoring and managing delivering something from an address to another.

Wordpress is written in PHP and Wordpress plugins have to be designed to work in that environment. As far as I know, the closest thing to mobile support Wordpress has is that you can visit Wordpress websites using a mobile device browser. I'd forget about Wordpress.

There are, however, lots of ways of getting "something" from one "address" to another. Those terms are way too broad to mean anything. They could mean email, web service requests, Message Queue requests, general network packets and more. Without something specific, there's nothing we can offer.

I mean by "getting something from one address to another" is that for example I am a company that has four delivery employees. I want to deliver certain packages to some addresses. So, I am looking for a plugin or already made code instead of starting from scratch that would help me automatically assign the delivery tasks to my employees, track it and so on.

You don't need a "plugin".. You need an entire logistical system. That's way outside my competency.

because there are many already existing mobile applications that do so, I thought that there should be a plugin somewhere that I can use.

Ok, thank you.

Mobile apps don't have a concept of plugins. And you need more than an app, you also need a backend for these apps to use, something like your company's ERP system.

I know that I need back-end and front-end for a mobile application like that. However, I was asking if their is already a ready made code that do some of these functionalities that I can use? This is what I referred to as a plugin.

I see. That's not what "plugins" means in any of the standard meanings of the term, so I was confused.

In that case, as Tim H said, you need the entire logistics system, and I, too, doubt that anything like that exists as open source.
