Chuck Frey is a mind mapping expert for the ages, so imagine our delight when he reviewed Lucidchart on his mind mapping site.
Here are a few highlights from his review. If you have a co-worker or friend in need of a diagramming tool, why not point them to Chuck's analysis?
"Lucidchart is the most impressive diagramming application I've seen in some time. I love the way it speeds the development of new diagrams, through features like the pop-up that appears at the end of a line so you can quickly add another shape when creating flowcharts, as well as the ability to set the app's default formatting for shapes and lines. With other diagramming programs I can't even begin to tell you how many hours I have spent selecting and adjusting the formatting of multiple objects. Lucidchart does away with all of that and lets you get down to business."
"Its integration with Google Drive and Microsoft Office 2013 are also very impressive. Considering that these two productivity suites are used by a critical mass of the world's businesses, Lucidchart has positioned itself to enable teams and individuals to do much more than was ever possible before. especially with the growing emphasis on visual thinking today.
When it comes to reviewing software, nothing irks me more than unintuitive user interfaces - functionality that leaves me scratching my head and wondering, "What the hell were they thinking?" I'm pleased to report that Lucidchart did NOT give me any of those moments. In fact, it was quite the opposite experience. The application was well-behaved, intuitive, and a pleasure to use. This was supported by some excellent tutorials, which helped me to get up to speed with it quickly. Kudos to the development team on a job well done."
