A new visio alternative for Mac is available. I used edraw max lifetime license for some years. Today I'm glad that I got the mac version. It's really a good choice for IOS users. The software has more examples and templates. The symbols tools is important for me because I need create own electrical symbols. They also give great support which is important.

It is good, but due to not using a standard filetype that can be opened in a good way by other programs it should be avoided. Switched to draw.io

Check out SmartDraw as a Visio Alternative

about Microsoft Office Visio · · Helpful Not helpful

SmartDraw offers a solid alternative to Visio. It imports both VSDX and VSD files. It has a desktop PC edition and you can also use it online in a browser. The Cloud edition lets you do what you used to do in Visio on your Mac: make flowcharts, network diagrams, and so on.

It also comes with a big collection of diagram templates, examples, and symbols. It may seem overwhelming at first, but anyone who needs a little nudge to help get a project off the ground is going to love all the options.

The tools are intuitive and are meant to make it easy to create a diagram even if you've never made one before.

This video on their site does a really nice job of highlighting the major differences:
