Ratings and Reviews
So I’ve tried many a flowchart diagramming app, and thus far this is the best I’ve come across.
I purchased the full version to be able to create multiple pages and some advanced editing.
Not sorry about the purchase, does what I need. It would get a full five stars if you could have the page bar visible all the time without having to click on the three dots at the bottom right of the screen and not have a large part of the screen covered up by the resultant window that opens up, or at a minimum give us the ability to reposition the window as its quite obtrusive.
I like that you can export to a variety of formats and can pick from a few different places to store the file and exports. Not sure why it generates a blank text file when you export a pdf, but am hoping this is a bug that gets fixed in a future update.
I use an external keyboard and when editing text, the directional buttons (up, down, left, right) don’t do anything. You have to click where you want the cursor to be and you cannot reposition it using the keyboard, again hoping this gets fixed in an update.
Would be nice to be able to see all pages at once, when working with multiple pages it would make life easier.
Overall a great little app well worth the $10.
Pretty good on iPad
The actual diagram creation functionality is great. Where I ran into problems (even after buying a license) was in the export/sharing. I used a big cloud to signify, you know, “the cloud” and then put some EC2 objects in it (top layer), a connection between them with a label, and a text call out. When I went to export/share my finished diagram I discovered that only the EC2 images within the cloud were visible. No amount of fiddling would get the link, text, and call out to appear (different export options selected, for example). Eventually I deleted the cloud and just used a group boundary box, and that worked fine. Also the transparency settings didn’t overlap with the selected object underneath well and were unusable. Please fix these issues and I’ll change my rating to five stars.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the feedback. We cant seem to replicate the layering issue you are experiencing. Could you please email us at email@example.com with more details on the shapes used and the sequence of steps? Thanks again.
I am really enjoying this app, it is easy to use and has most of the tools that I need to detail out my company’s structure and projects. I’m still learning the features, so I am sure I will enjoy it even more as I learn. My one complaint is that it does not integrate with the iPad’s ability to split screen. Since I am usually pulling info from other sources, this would be an incredibly helpful feature. I really hope that this is an easy add, because it would make all the difference in the world for my productivity.
