A few days ago a one of my friend asked me to recommend some online diagramming tools if I know. But only tool I new about is the diagramming options available on Microsoft Office.

  1. If you actually test the collaboration, LucidChart is far above the other products in terms of real-time collaboration.

    Great list!

  2. These are really very useful and i just used Cacoo. I wanted to create a Wheel of some of the products. These can help me a lot.

  3. “Hi all,
    Can I request you to consider MockupTiger in your review process. It is a great new web application designed using HTML5. You can use it on desktop or host it on your domain/intranet. It is the only tool allows to prototype dashboard charts with actual data (not just static images) and contains a library of charts. Choose between hand drawn look or normal, choose your own font and skin color or draw color.”

  4. I have personally used DrawAnywhere and I have found it is very useful while drawing flowcharts! Initially I used to draw them in mspaint and it was a tedious job but latter I saw one of my friends using Drawanywhere and from that i became a great fan of this software. Also I am surely gonna try the others too.
    Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Thanks for the list, but would ahve been great if you could mentioned which ones were free and their limitations like number of collaborators allowed in free/paid versions etc…

  6. These tools are awesome. They are easy to use and they are even accessible since they are available online.

  7. Some time ago I have used quite extensively Lovely Charts, then somehow forgot about that. Thank you for reminding me, it’s really a wonderful tool.

  8. I really think you will do much better in the future I appreciate every thing you’ve added to my information base.

Other features include embedded icons search and it also allows you to take WebPage screenshots right in the editor.
