Why use Betty Blocks with Sitecore?
In Sitecore it take some effort to make a data driven application. You have Sitecore Forms but if you need more than a simple form there is out of the box in Sitecore no elegant way to store and use user data. So basically you need to create a custom database and write the code without using the good things of Sitecore. When it comes to innovation and rapid development it takes more time and infrastructure hassle than necessary. An option is to build it with JSS and create your data-driven application in Node.js, but why not use a node-code or low-code tool? Same for mobile applications, Sitecore has several options to use it with mobile application, like react native with JSS. But why not use a no-code tool to speed up the development and take some hassle away?
