Which software is best to build an opening repertoire and train it?

I tried openings.chessbase.com. The UI is pretty bad, yet it looks like it should have everything I'm looking for. However, I couldn't make it work. It wouldn't load the opening book, the drill feature didn't work at all, etc. . It's just buggy as hell. Just bad. [Edit: Today the drill feature worked and the opening book loaded. So they fixed it for now.]

I read about bookup.com and chesspositiontrainer.com in some old threads, but both seem to be abandoned from their developers since years. 

I didn't find anything at chess24.com, chess.com or lichess.org. 

Features I'd be looking for:

  1. Easy building of opening repertoire as white and black
  2. Good database to pick moves, see win percentages, click through games
  3. Built in engine
  4. Drill feature to memorize your moves
  5. Mobile app for training of your own repertoire on the go
  6. Easy import and export

  7. Which software are top players using to build their repertoire and how do they memorize it?
