Contentful apps

Contentful apps are built by Contentful and offer new approaches to content management and delivery on the platform. There are currently two Contentful apps:

Compose provides editors a familiar, page-based, interface to manage their web content, allowing them to get up to speed in minutes and work faster every day. This easy to use interface utilizes structured content, which means it’s as flexible as everything else in Contentful.

Launch allows teams to collaborate much more effectively and deliver faster by grouping the content for large projects into releases that can be scheduled or published as a single entity. It also adds powerful planning and collaboration tools, including a calendar view of all scheduled events in your space and workflow status labels.
