There are plenty of blocks plugins out there but the team behind this plugin are very responsive and do a great job improving it. For example, I noticed a minor issue with a block and it was fixed immediately. I also like that it's focused on the needs of bloggers and content creators. So far, it's the only plugin I've found with a content filtering block. And it's rare to see a review block in these types of plugins. Very cool. Ultimate Blocks is one of my favourite plugins for Gutenberg. I install it on every site I build.

I use this plugin while couple weeks without any problem. Great design and the perfect thing is compatibility with schema markup for example table of content or accordion block.
