Our tools give you the power to add apps to your website without having to write a single line of code.
App settings can be modified at any time; as you update the information on a tool, the website page will reflect the changes automatically.
Some apps can only be added as a content block to a page after you create them in Apps – a Form, a Catalog, a Blog. Others are set up in Tools but since they're not “visible” to people, you don't “add” them to a page — Google Search, Google XML Sitemap, etc.
Finally, certain tools are simply added directly to a page with no need to be set up in Apps e.g. an Embed Code block.
