Catch Web Tools is a new modular plugin from Catch Themes. Power up your WordPress site with powerful features that were till now only available to Catch Themes users.

Let's begin with how easy the setup process is. It's just a matter of clicks. 

One usual assumption people have is like when a plugin offers multiple features and facilities, it loads slow. However, Catch Web Tools offers modular plugins that you activate manually. Which simply means, that if there are 50 different facilities the plugin offers, your site won't take the load of those 50 features unless you activate them. You have the option of activating manually the exact feature's you need and not unnecessarily overload your site. 

Catch Web Tools is available for free downloads at this point. Which means, you will get a lot of advanced features that would make your site interesting, efficient and professional - for free!

Catch Web Tools use clean coding that follows WordPress's standard guideline. Which means, zero hassles and perfect compatibility with your themes!
