Gliffy Comments

Chrome app

about Gliffy and Aug 2015

Tip: if you want to use it for free, use the Chrome-app. You won't be able to save to cloud services automatically, but you can save unlimited private diagrams on your computer. is also worth trying.


working together - problems guaranteed

Comment by EgorA
about Gliffy Jun 2015 very unstable and buggy when working together, if there are 2 people simultaneously on a project - problems guaranteed. you can only work one at a time.
