Gute Idee

… aber die Umsetzung ist eher schlecht. Die Bedienung des Programms ist umständlich und nicht Mac like. Die Eingabefelder passen sich beim Schreiben nicht in den Größe an und man sieht kaum, was man gerade schreibt. Dann scrollt die Ansicht oftmals von selbst in die Mitte, was sehr irritiert.

Die fehlenden Druckfunktion und der umständliche PDF-Export mit vielen leeren Seiten machen den Gesamteindruck nicht besser.

Guter Ansatz aber für mich zum Arbeiten noch nicht geeignet.

Hallo netspy,
vielen Dank dass Sie sich die Zeit für ein Review genommen haben.
Es tut mir leid, dass die App noch nicht Ihren Erwartungen entspricht. Ich versuche natürlich, sie kontinuierlich zu verbessern und daher weiß ich Ihr Feedback wirklich sehr zu schätzen!
Sie haben völlig recht, dass der aktuelle PDF Export noch etwas rudimentär ist.
Aktuell ist Drucken daher am besten wahrscheinlich über den Umweg eines PNG/SVG Exports möglich. Eine explizite Druckfunktion sowie ein besserer PDF Export ist für die nächste Version geplant.
Die Größe der Eingabefelder an den Text anzupassen ist eine sehr gute Idee, ich habe das Feature auch in das Backlog für die nächste Version aufgenommen.
Das von Ihnen beschriebene Scrollingproblem ist bei mir bisher noch nicht in der Form aufgetreten, ich werde es aber auf alle Fälle beobachten.
An dieser Stelle nochmal vielen Dank für Ihr Feedback, sollten Sie noch Vorschläge, Ideen oder Kritikpunkte haben, schreiben Sie mir gerne einfach eine Nachricht an
Vielen Dank und viele Grüße,

I really like the visual style - but usability is lousy...

I realy like how diagrams are visualized. The look is perfect to avoid the typical sterile ambience of computer generated class diagrams.

However, I feel that the developer has spend too much time into a ciruclar menu which is pain to use and not very intuitive too. It would be much quicker if there were a drag-and-drop library of elements and/or a simple markup mode to "write" the classes down.

It's not a problem that access modificators were missing - you can simply add a /- . However it would be nise to alo have a feature for that so that it can be more easily changed afterward and get some more standardization in notation.

Additionally it would be nice if at least use case diagrams could be added too.

Don't take me wrong: This app looks nice and can be very useful for developers. But you really should try the user interface - it's not good for everyone and very special.

If the developer would decide to add a drag and drop toolbox as optional feature (maybe in-app purchase) i would be glad to pay another 1,99 or so and add one more star to my review. If use case diagrams become reality, the fifth star will appear...

Hi OxnoxO,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a very comprehensive review.
I am sorry that the current wheel menu implementation does not fit your needs. - designing a user interface that works for all users is not an easy task.

But as I am constantly trying to improve UMLBoard's usability, I think your idea with the additional Drag&Drop toolbox sounds very interesting. I will definitely check this out for a future version. Also, your suggestion with the text-based interface - maybe with a syntax similar to PlantUML? - is something I will take a look into.

I added Support for access specifiers to the current release backlog, so it should hopefully be available in the next version.

If you have any additional thoughts regarding features or usability or encounter any issues, please don't hesitate to contact me at .

Thanks a lot, and have a nice day!

I love it.

It's a great app (so great in fact, that I immediately bought it on the Windows Store as well).

The developer is awesome. Version 1.5 fulfilled all my wishes for now, so that 5 star rating is well earned. Now it's time to use it even more regulariy

This UML app has just the right amount of depth to quickly set up a model or communicate stuff to coworkers. By far the cheapest and most comfortable alternative to StarUML or umbrello (which while being open source is sadly a PITA to run on macOS, especially in dark mode)

Hi grunerd,
thank you very much for your review and your suggestions, I'm very glad that you like the app!
Custom font support is already planned and will hopefully be available in one of the next versions.
Support for dark-theme and different rendering styles are also in the backlog, but it might take some time until they are implemented.
Editing via double-click is a very good idea, I will try to add it with the next version.
If you have more feature requests or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me,
Best regards,
