Great support and community makes this an essential tool for creating awesome looking websites. That said, it can sometimes be frustrating getting positions right. But ones you master this, it is just fantastic.

While it is true that Blocs has lots of ready made blocs and brics to work with, you don't have to. You actually have a lot of freedom in designing your website with blocs. Yes, you need to work within the boundaries of the Bootstrap 4 framework, but that's not generally a bad thing. And Blocs 4 will most likely add support for CSS grid and a lot of improvements for developers as well as designers. And true, while you can simply use the premade blocs to quickly assemble a website, it's not the way to go if you want your website to look different from what most Bootstrap built webpages look. Put a little effort into learning the ins and outs of Blocs and you'll be able to achieve very good looking websites. Learn some basic HTML and CSS to be able to apply custom CSS classes or edit those that come with Bootstrap, and you're golden to craft really good looking websites. Blocs is for beginners and pro web developers / designers alike that prefer a more visual approach to designing a website while still being able to customise the look and feel of the website by using custom CSS or inject custom JS and PHP. Combine Blocs with the VOLT CMS and Blogging solution, and you won't need much more. Anyone else saying blocs sucks because you can just use ready made blocs hasn't seriously tried the app. Just saying...

It might not be just as easy to use as Wix & co, but it's definitely still very easy! It requires no coding at all, and just gives you almost every freedom to design what you would like to, all while "guiding" you to a nice, fully & automatic responsive design. It's great in helping you to avoid those mistakes that make websites look unprofessional or outdated.
Another MAJOR advantage: You download & pay the software once, and you are free to use it for as many websites as you'd like to, no monthly fee, free forever. Almost no other modern website builder can compete with this offer, I've searched a lot before I found Blocs...

Blocs is not intuitive, its not "easy to use" its very limiting and very time consuming. I highly recommend putting the time to learning a software like dreamweaver and learning some code before diving into a front end like this that still needs A LOT of work. It looks nice, but working with it feels like trying to play golf with a bowling ball.

You only can use ready made blocks, cannot change it. Incompatible between versions.
