The concept for CatchFree was born when the founders realized that there was a problem with some free applications. Many were advertised as free, but really included various catches or hoops that the user must jump through to use the app. CatchFree was built to provide users with an honest, reliable and unbiased resource to learn and share information about the free apps they have used or plan to use.
Reviews are found all over the web, however CatchFree is one of the few resources that focuses on free applications and whether they are truly as free as they claim to be. The site gives users a way to support their favorite free apps while sharing insight and experiences with those that did not live up to expectations.
The CatchFree website invites user with a bright green and blue color scheme. The logo features a heart shape with a check mark in it beside the site’s name in green and blue. The header uses a pleasant blue sky scene complete with wispy clouds. The app pages are organized by tabs with the user rating form along the right hand side.
A new user can join the CatchFree community by clicking the black “Sign Up / Log In” link at the top of the page, near the right hand corner. Clicking the link causes the CatchFree registration form to appear. After completing the form, the user can return to the homepage to begin searching for their favorite free apps. All application reviews can be submitted through the app page.
CatchFree benefits by having more users available to review applications. The site currently offers membership to all users for free. This is definitely a good thing to help keep users interested and participating in the CatchFree community. The more users participate, the more information that is provided and the more value other users can get out of their experience with CatchFree.

The site provides helpful tools that allow users to read ratings and reviews posted by other real users. The site also provides a place for the user to share their own experiences to help others make good decisions about which free apps to try.
