What is the history and popularity of the app?

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.

What are the differences to other apps?

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.
