How does the web app look and feel to use?

Diagramly’s interface is one of the many reasons internet users love the application. A basic tutorial is presented as soon as the user arrives on the homepage. The user can page through the tutorial or skip it and jump right in. Either way, very little effort is required to figure out how Diagram.ly works. The interface uses a soft blue color scheme that gives the icons and images center stage. Visual components are presented in drop down menus to the left while editing and file saving tools are listed across the top. The application seems to glide with each click. The only limitations rest on the user’s ability to drag and drop items onto the diagram canvas.

How does the registration process work?

A new user is not required to register to use Diagram.ly. As soon as the visitor arrives, they are presented with the tutorial and can move right along to the actual diagram editor tools. The user is given access to all design elements and features. The user can also save their work at any point. Diagram.ly doesn’t store the document for the user. Instead it allows the user to download their work to their computer.

What does it cost to use the application?

The price of Diagram.ly is another appealing aspect of the application. All users can enjoy the many features and icons included for free. There is no subscription fee or other purchase requirement to use Diagram.ly. The user does not have to make an account, either. Anyone who wishes to try Daigramly only has to visit the website and bring their ideas and diagram data. There are no usage limitations, either. Users can return as often as they like.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Diagram.ly is an excellent resource for anyone who needs to build a diagram.
