Pros

I loved the finish of the design, and the fact that they had the gridlines to guide placement. Alignment of the shapes were so easy, and loved how customizable it was.
Very easy to use with excellent collaborative features. Nice bright and modern UI.
This was a great product if you're looking for something to do very simple flows and charts in. Price point is great, and the free version still allows to use most features.

Pros

I really like how easy it is to create a diagram that looks visually appealing. It's easy to select a color pallet and style that complents each price of data I want to visualize.
Intuitive interface with useful templates. Cost is great - free for universities.
Very good, I use it for my team meeting, brainstorming session. I find it very helpful transferring thought processes to diagrams or swim lane charts.

Cons

Lack of features advertised would be included. Lack of tutorials in the software.
Sometimes the lines between connections didn’t land where I wanted them or changed shape and that was frustrating.
Occasionally, when I'd try to "tweak" a little place on my project it would mess up the whole thing.

Cons

The line tool sucks, it is not intuitive to use.
Nothing that I can think of. But my usage is limited.
Some features may need a more tweaking, e.g. it's very difficult to move cells up and down, and also it's a lot of efforts trying to select and move an element inside a group.

One of the best wireframing tools out there!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have been using Cacoo for creating charts, diagrams, site maps, site architecture and to create images to use in presentations to take people through really complex concepts in a very user friendly and clear way

Pros

I've been using Cacoo for over 7 years now and I still love it and prefer to most other online tools I've tried. It's good value in terms of price but provides an impeccable service and it's completely based online so it's very handy both for collaboration, back ups and can be used pretty much from anywhere.

Cons

the only thing I'd like for them to improve is the image manipulation tool

Pros

I used Cacoo to try out their features, and I think it is a great tool to create graphic content, specially if you need to do presentations, marketing as it provides great opportunities to develop great illustrations.

Cons

I think it will be better to have a personal use license that allows non-commercial or NGO use of the software.

I've used it a couple of times to design the flow of a software product that I am considering creating. It's fairly easy to use and allows you to visualize the flow of the process.

Wish it had a feature to auto connect the bubbles without having to go back and create a line every time. It may do this, but it was not apparent to me.

Cacoo is easy and powerful

Reviewed 9 months ago

So, far I love it. It just works really well for me and is easy to learn.

Pros

I like the ease of which you can create new diagrams, flowcharts, and wire frames. I use this software to design, preview and help test the iOS apps I develop. The wire frame models are easy to create and very easy to modify or change as needed. Other software is confusing and time consuming. Cacoo is so easy and really, a pleasure to use.

Cons

I would like to see more iOS icons and graphics that are native to the shape component. Really though, I just can just import the images I need as I go and even drag-n-drop what I need at the moment.

I really like to work with Cacoo as I don't have similar Tools like Visio. It is a good platform to be creative. For Example I have used it to create a Gaming Board as a base for an upcoming Board Game.

Pros

This Software is really easy to use and is based on the most popular processes for building strong Flowcharts, Diagrams and Mockups. There are very many Icons and graphics to use

Cons

As it is a webbased Software in some circumstances it is a little slow. and of course you only can use it on big Screens. It should have better performance on Tablets like iPad.

Great tool for mock-ups and interactive wireframes

Reviewed 3 years ago

A robust, simple and fairly priced wireframing tool, that allows building great mockups for marketing and product managers.

Pros

– Easy to use, requires no designer or programmer background to create interactive mockups – Many pre-built elements for constructing custom wireframes: buttons, inputs, icons, shapes, etc – Very powerful free version

Cons

– Some UI functions are not very convenient or intuitive. E.g. it's necessary to click the panel item once again to close the context menu (rather than simply click outside the menu).
