Creately is a web-based diagramming tool that can be used to create a variety of diagrams. It can be used to design flowcharts, wireframes, strategy diagrams etc., and a number of price plans are available.
- Download free – Creately is completely web-based and therefore no downloading is necessary.
- Collaborate – Team members can see and edit your diagrams. They can also communicate through a comment function. Any changes that are made by collaborators are saved to a separate file however, and the original document is preserved.
- Shape Library – There is a large library of predesigned shapes and other UI elements. These can be added to the diagram using drag and drop features.
- Attractive Flowcharts – There is a full spectrum of colours to choose from when formatting your flowchart, along with a selection of attractive fonts.
You can sign up for a Creately Plus Account for $4.95 for month. This is designed for personal use and allows 1GB of storage, 1 Home Project and up to 5 Collaborators. Additional pricing plans and sign up details are available here.
While this is a cheap and straightforward application, the lack of real time collaboration may be an issue for some users.
