Catch Evolution Pro Change Log


Catch Evolution Pro (Premium Responsive Three Columns WordPress Themes) is a beautifully sleek creation of Catch Themes. It exudes a clean and a super sharp look. It comes with a whole set of interesting, rich features and flexible theme options. Built on HTML5, CSS3, it has a responsive design which lets the content automatically adapt to the screen’s size on different devices. Catch Evolution looks striking in a bigger screen. While the rest of our themes till now were confined to 1000 pixels width limit, this one expands to 1190 pixels! In other words, the layout is wider, bigger and looks luxuriously spacious. For more details check our Theme Instructions.
