Allow Grafio to become an extension of your fingertip. Draw a rectangle, circle or an ellipse and watch Grafio recognize and replace it with a perfectly looking shape for your diagram or schematic. Grafio has been around for 9 years already, polished, efficient and full of features achieved through more than 35 updates and free upgrades.

Drag and drop objects on the canvas for more complex diagrams. Make connections and add text and images. Everything you need for visualizing your idea.

The shapes you draw are automatically closed and straightened, all primitive shapes are instantly recognized. The lines you draw between shapes are automatically turned into connections thanks to our shape recognition algorithms.

Some diagrams require more advanced objects. Grafio provides hundreds of shapes you could easily drag in from the library. You could also insert images from your Camera Roll as shapes and connect them to your other shapes.

Recording audio notes to your shapes could be a way for you to collect your thoughts or you can use this feature for something more creative, like taking an interview or recording your riffs for example.

We developed а non-intrusive interface that will get you straight to the point. All advanced features you might need are also there hidden beneath the surface. To have all that power on your iOS Device at your fingertips is truly amazing!

What’s New

Version 4.0.3

4.0.3 improvements:
- Automatic document saving upon exiting the app or receiving another document through Air Drop, no more data losses!
- Angular connections now behave and display properly
- Icon search now works properly with hardware keyboards
- Fix for a rare crash while receiving documents through Air Drop
- Fix for a rare crash when ungrouping several groups simultaneously
- Templates for the new Apple devices are now available
- Data Flow Diagram symbol thumbnails are back on track
- AWS icon pack - removed redundant Amazon and AWS prefixes in order to display more meaningful information in the table
- Icon names are now properly displayed in both light and dark themes
- Better conformance to your dark/light theme choice
- Various user interface improvements

Some of the most notable Improvements in 4.0:

Grafio can now store and sync your documents in the iCloud. Not just iCloud, any cloud service that has an app on your iPad. Exchanging between your devices has never been easier. Plus you're constantly backed up.

Speed up your creative process - no need to waste time typing shape text. Simply handwrite it using Apple Pencil into any shape on the canvas. Grafio won’t recognise the handwritten script but will duly store it inside. You can always use a fancy typeface later when you’re done with creating the graph.

A unified document browser that lets you manage your documents locally as well as on supported cloud services such as iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.

A precision toolbar to adjust any of your objects' position, rotation and size through numerical values. Flip a shape with just a button, or align and distribute multiple shapes.

Tons of new free icons - more than 3,000 color and black&white pictograms including activities, places, weather, people, animals, emoticons, electrical symbols, GHS and a lot more.

Icon search in the library. Now you can find what you need as easy as typing its name into the search box.

Scaling or rotating a shape now affects the text label inside as well.

It’s now possible to put arrowheads to any line even if it’s not a connection between shapes.

It's now possible to rearrange the order in which the shapes appear when exporting a video presentation.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) icon pack is now up to date

…and of course many usability and speed improvements under the hood.

Important: Please read carefully before updating from Grafio 3!
Grafio 4 is using a newer, iCloud-compliant document format. Your Grafio 3 documents will be converted to the new format seamlessly and will be stored in your local device storage. On your first run you will need to point the document browser to the correct location (On My iPad or On My iPhone). Your documents would not show up in Recents nor they will be uploaded to the iCloud. If for some reason you can't find your old projects, don't panic and don't remove the app. Get in touch with us for guidance.

If you like the new version, please spare a minute to leave us a rating or review in the App Store. It does matter a lot and keeps us motivated to further improve Grafio. Enjoy!

This should be a 5-star Review

I am thrilled with Grafio. Can’t get enough of it. I do wish they can introduce (and fix) certain features. The fix first: since the recent iOS upgrade I can no longer upload to Dropbox. That’s minor. As for improvements: when creating org charts allow for shape substitutions to boxes. Now you have to delete a box and all connectors resulting in lots of lost time to recreate. Aligning multiple objects at once whether top/bottom, right/left or center would be great. Otherwise love, love, love it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the passionate review and for the suggestions! In fact the last 3 updates were made towards better Dropbox support and we have users reporting that Dropbox finally works as expected. If this is not the case with you, please get in touch by email ( so that we could get a bit more information about what exactly doesn't work. Shape substitution is a popular feature, we will definitely deliver it in a future update. Alignment and distribution is coming in Grafio 4 soon, there is dedicated toolbar for it. Stay tuned!

Mabye this latest update will cure the problem?

I love this app. Let’s get that straight right up front. I find one consistently bothersome bug though. The way I use the app, I typically push shapes around constantly, tweaking here and there, sometimes for over an hour. Almost always use Apple Pencil. But I also use Apple Keyboard a lot at the same time. I like the precision of moving objects with the arrow keys. But invariably, the arrow keys will stop working sometime during the session. Even with the Apple Pencil, I can’t get the same precision of placement and it becomes frustrating trying to place things just so with either finger or pencil. The workaround I found was to disconnect and reconnect the keyboard to make the arrow keys work again. Oh, and one big wish for future functionality: It would be most awesome if a circle would remain a perfect circle when being resized. I don’t want to lose the ability to make an egg shape out of it, but I do want the option to do both. Actually this would be great for all the shapes, but most especially for circles. Wonderful App!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the thorough review! We'd suggest to continue the thread by email on as we'll be able to delve into more details. To answer your concerns: keyboard stops working - we have never stumbled into such behavior - can you specify what model this is - the optional iPad Pro keyboard or a standard bluetooth keyboard? Also, when this happens, can you still type into other apps, e.g. in Notes? Uniform scaling - if you pinch with your fingers within the object's boundaries then it is scaled proportionally; BTW there is an internal discussion about proportional scaling - right now the corner scaling handles work in a free form ratio mode, while I believe they should keep the object's aspect ratio; what's your take on that? And the good news is - our major update Grafio 4 contains a precision toolbar that allows placing/scaling objects by using numerical values for ultimate precision.

Great diagram app for a fraction of the cost

Easier to use than Omnigraffle, has plenty of features, and costs a fraction of the price. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that Omnigraffle does, but I found that most of those were for very specific professional needs and most people don’t need them. Grafio does have more features than Lucidchart and is again much cheaper (no subscription compared to $5.99-$8.99/mo for Lucidchart). I use Grafio for creating org charts, diagraming processes both for work and at home, and used it to create a network map when setting up my home network. The library of assets is great and includes assets to meet just about any need. The examples that are included have been great for helping me come up with ideas for my own diagrams. Being able to use the Apple Pencil to create shapes has been a big bonus and I love that I can import my own assets (icons mainly) into Grafio. If you need a feature packed diagraming app that’s easy to use get Grafio!
