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, http://www.lucidchart.com/pages/offline, 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 :)


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 Yohan


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!
