As a chemical engineer,I have used MS Visio as a tool to create diagrams for process, equipment and plant design. Diagramly is a similar tool, but I like it better since its really user friendly and easy to navigate. Even none technical people will find it easy to use. I can recommend it to my fellow engineers who create designs/ diagrams, to graphic artist, or just to normal individual who just want to play around with it and use it as a tool for creativity.

I’ve been a long time Microsoft Visio user and discovering this free online software is a great find for me. First time users will be encourage to use this tool particularly with the pop-up tips and tricks dialog showing at start-up. All the basic shapes and feature are readily available, helping me create diagrams fast. Saving the document is easy with four extensions to choose from, but only files saved as SVG and XML will be displayed correctly when opened in another application. PNG and JPG files lose those shapes/figures created from the non-basic diagram. Opening a saved file is another story (might be worst) because only files that were saved as XML were opened successfully. The other files – SVG, JPG and PNG would not open and shows a pop-up dialog with ‘missing or invalid file’ context. What I like: It’s online, basic, and no need to check for security and software updates. What I do not like: Saving files and opening them. What needs improvement: comprehensive Help document, the help provided will only show the Tips and tricks and no more. Conclusion: This is a cool free online software but may need more development and testing - particularly the save and open feature. Try it.

A very intuitive tool; the graphics are great. I liked the 'how to' at the beginning for new users. Not owning Visio myself (and not wanting to fork over the dough to purchase it) I can see myself using this frequently on my current contract. So many of my business users are visual learners. The graphics are more complete than some of Visio's. I'm wondering if users will be allowed to import or save their own clip art or graphics? Overall, the tool appears very complete.

A very intuitive application with cool stencils! Even the inexperienced users can easily learn it. Plus, you don't need to worry about the installation as it's purely online. You can just go create your diagrams and save your file locally to xml, PNG, JPG or SVG file types, very handy! I highly recommend it!

Very user-friendly. Simple and easily accessible as it is online so no installation/licensing required. Not as rich in feature as Microsoft Visio is, but can surely be taken advantage of by anyone who needs to create diagrams on-the-fly. What I particularly like is that it supports Microsoft Visio import!

I can say that the application looks a lot more user friendly than Visio. I appreciated every single information that Diagramly has. It is a well-designed site and I can say that it is highly recommended to all people who may be of use to this particular application.

I am fully aware that there's a lot of applications for creating flow charts, maps, and other types of visuals, but Diagramly is on the go the minute you visit the website. The next best thing about is, it’s just accessed online and you need not installing the application. Another thing is that it is accessible anywhere there's an Internet Connection.

I believe that this application will allow and help build the processes in creating them in a lot more effective manner!

Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more and more wonderful improvements on Diagramly!

seems like Diagramly is a poor alternative to Visio. online but without any of the traditional advantages of web app -- no cloud storage (have to export diagram to save it), no collaboration (not possible), et cetera. pales in comparison to tools like Lucid Charts and Cacoo.

I strongly recommend (http://www.diagram.ly ) for beginners and experts alike! The initial view of Diagram.ly is reminiscing of Microsoft Visio , and the initial tips and tricks window had me well on my way with little to no in-depth training. I like the initial simplicity. When first learning Visio, I spent several hours watching video tutorials and reading the help tutorial just to get started, but not with Diagram.ly (http://www.diagram.ly ). You can truly "hit the ground running". I really liked the networking and telecommunication icons that come standard in the program. They have a sleek and ultra-modern look to them that look impressive for charts and diagrams you will be using for presentations to customers.

All the most important features/tools one would need in visualization software are here including: align, page layouts/breaks, good stock of general shapes, and a large amount of font, shape, and color options to easier personalize work.

This program is everything you need to create work and process flow diagrams, as well as, networking diagrams, and other IT and business visualizations, and nothing that you don’t. Diagram.ly (http://www.diagram.ly ) seems like a great stepping stone into MS Visio or even a complete alternative, as it is simpler to use and easier to understand. If you are not looking for “bells and whistles”, but a quick, painless application that is accessible anywhere and most importantly, FREE, then I would strongly recommend Diagram.ly htt
