Qubely comes to the market with a huge amount of customization and feature-rich set of blocks. This truly is a must-have if you ever work with the block while building your site. Some of the more advanced and premium blocks are only available on Qubely Pro, but I feel like the free version provides so much more than the rest in the market.
