Lucidchart Comments

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"


Actually, Lucidchart has a forever free (limited) plan. They do offer 7-day trials of premium plans and offer that to you when you sign up; however, once that 7-day trial expires, you automatically drop to the free plan (with some restrictions).




Second best after Mindomo

Comment by TimothyD about Lucidchart Also mentioning: 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.


You can give Creately a try. They do offer a desktop software which cost 75$, which is lot cheaper than MS Visio. However If you are only trying to draw a simple flowchart then something like MS Word or Paint is also fine.

Rather strange when there are 1000s of web based applications on this site to come to specifically this one and argue against it (and go on to blame it for making flowchart creation impossible). Lucidchart supports HTML 5 offline mode,, which means you would only need an occassional connection (and a connection would be needed to download any non web based software) and you must have a connection because you posted on here...


For those people that are looking for web-based diagrams, Lucidchart is a great solution. We are constantly coming out with new shape libraries.

Here are some examples of libraries that have been released just in the last month:

P&ID diagrams
Cisco network diagrams
Value stream map diagrams
Rack server diagrams

We are also going to releasing many new features in the future. You can stay posted by adding our blog to your favorite RSS reader :)


I don't like the subscription model. I want to buy software, use it offline where and when I choose to do so. .vss import is a nice plus. I'm sticking with Droiddia for now, because of the freedom it offers.


The best one

Comment by artembeloglazov about Lucidchart Aug 2014

The best one!!


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


I thank the LucidChart team for the the support they give to students like me.
I've started to try this tool for a while now and it seems promising!


Thanks so much for the education account :), .... This application rocks, .... thanks again


Very good for students
All my mates using Visio are jealous that they can't use Visio anywhere they want and still be able to make as or more powerful charts


What a wonderful service! You won't ever want to install Visio anymore!


I'm very impressed by the possibilities and intuitive interface. Perfect for students!


Powerful and yet very easy to use and manipulate. Our team has migrated from Visio.


Really well executed. Much, much better than Visio and other web apps for this. The recent introduction of Visio import really opens up the possibilities for my company.
