changed Lucidchart from freemium to commercial

Comment by mekineer
about Lucidchart Jan 2016

Someone listed LucidChart as freemium. However, you only get to try it for a limited time. Unless I am mistaken, I don't think that is "free with limited functionality"

Second best after Mindomo

Comment by TimothyD
about Lucidchart and Mindomo Dec 2015

If you want to work with mind maps in your classes,Lucidchart is a good choice but Mindomo is the best. They have something new called assignments which makes students' maps come to you with no sharing. Also, the possibility to turn maps into presentations is great for class debates.

Too bad it's web-based

Negative Comment by User6916094
about Lucidchart May 2012

I don't like the idea of the software being web-based. By assuming every person making a flowchart is working with a global network of colleagues in a world where Internet is accessible everywhere, the simple use of a flowchart software is omitted.

Hi Guys

I just started using this for my dissertation and loving it.. It has all the features required and just doing my UML diagrams and never felt this easy to do it - and I have used Visio and Smart Draw both before..

Continue the good work, all the best
