    Pros
    This is probably the best free tool to use to create any kind of flow chart/diagram chart, the ease of use is perfect to roll out to the whole company with no training needed.

    Best of all, collaboration is just as easy so you can work with anyone or just yourself and share.

    Good tool in the price range to collaborate on collectively and deliver great results. Easy to integrate on the cloud and can be shared as a Google document as well as edited within the shared file.

    Cons
    This generates compatibility problems between both applications. Also, I found problems using some Visio templates from my colleagues in the software.

    Daniel T.

    If there is an error with Goodgle Drive, then draw.io is out of our reach, which can be very inconvenient if we need access to our charts.

    Well, if you did not save and download all of your drafts in several formats before turning your device off, you would experience unpleasant problems with recovering your drafts then.

    Indispensable for Studies!

    Reviewed a year ago

    That's just Splendid. Spectacular. Studious. Superb. Really remarkable. I cannot imagine how I would have done without this thing. User-friendly, responsive, adaptive, trustworthy, reliable, relieving! Easy-to-use and flexible. Comfy and effortless. Efficient and Effective. The best tool I have ever used for my studying, working and research activities! Powerful and simple.

    Pros

    Well, this service reminds me about the most memorable, pleasant and amazing time in my life. I was doing my first Master's at the Higher School of Economics (Moscow) and my daily studying routine included using different apps for creating presentations, slides, docs. I had not known any good app for creating block schematical diagrams and one of my group mates (she actually had a Bachelor's degree...

    An easy alternative for Visio outside Windows OS

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I began to use this software on my Mac when I needed to edit or create a diagram. It was my alternative because the MS Visio doesn't have version for macOS. But, due to the compatibility problems with some files with special metadata, I finally changed to use MS Visio in a virtual machine.

    Pros

    It is full web software to create diagrams of flows. Has a lot of templates and objects libraries similar to the MS Visio than help to create the draw. It is compatible with the Visio files. Also, you can use your OneDrive or Google Drive storage to work inside this.

    Cons

    Despite you can open Visio files not always the metadata of these are open well. This generates compatibility problems between both applications. Also, I found problems using some Visio templates from my colleagues in the software.

    Number one tool for diagrams and flowcharts

    Reviewed a month ago
    Pros

    It is free, it is relatively easy to use and it supports a lot of functionality - all of that without installing anything on your computer. I have created many diagrams for my work using this tool and will choose it for any of my next projects. What I really like is that you can find a lot of custom shapes and images and also the snap to object/grid features. It also integrates with many cloud storage solutions, so you can directly export/import it to your cloud account.

    Cons

    It might be hard to get used to it first and there are sometimes occasional "quirks", but it most of the time it works very well.

    draw.io

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    For a free alternative to Visio, this is a great tool! Our company mostly uses Visio for process diagrams that are pretty in nature and given Microsoft's licensing structure, it is a pretty hefty price to do so. While we have some general resistance to change, for the most part when people start using it they are convinced.

    Pros

    The design is intuitive and easy to play around with to figure out how to do the things we need to do. Additionally the OneDrive integration is great for us as it is a concept our users are comfortable using.

    Cons

    The biggest downfall to this software is people's resistance to change and a new thing they are not used to. Because this is web based instead of installed software based, we have seen people show unease and resistance to using the software. Having an installed version may help this transition more. Additionally the text controls within shapes are a bit limited.
