This is a unique diagramming tool that allows flowcharts and other diagrams to be created using touchscreen technology. Roughly drawn shapes are recognized using a shape recognition engine called Recog, and transformed into professional-looking flowcharts.
- Shape Recognition – The shape recognition engine Recog is capable of recognising a number of shapes, and interprets hand-drawn images easily.
- On-the-Fly flowcharting – As you add elements, Instaviz automatically rearranges the flowchart to provide an optimum layout.
- Labelling – Depending on which format you are using labels are added to the flowchart in different ways. iPhones and iPods require a separate window that appears once you edit the labels. As there is a larger interface on the iPad editing can be done using popover controls.
Instaviz can be purchased from the iTunes store, where it is priced at $9.99.
This is a handy app that allows for rapid flowcharting on-the-fly. It is a useful and easy-to-use organizational tool.
