    Very easy to use. Fair interface. The only issue really is that connectors must have a node at each end, it would be great if you could simply add unconnected lines. Other than that, it's a very good application.

    Can draw flowcharts and diagrams with almost all the features of Visio. You can drag a box, press F2, and start typing, for example.

    It is hard to tell you that when I haven't started using it yet, but it appears to have the functionality I require without the expensive price, for sure.
