Well, this app is great for quick doodles, network maps and tech sketches. The UI is well done (compared to some) and it has some nice but not too many features. Unlike another review here, I love this on my Chromebook touch screen. It and Chromecast and it makes an awesome whiteboard app as well!

simple is beautiful. I especially like sequence diagram and real time sharing feature. Considering it is only beta, I has once used in my multi-site project work. The real time sharing feature saves team many emails and attachments. Cool!

While it still should be considered beta, this program performs its task well. Rundown: The scope of this app is the first thing you should consider. The app is intended to be clean, lightweight, and portable. If you were expecting Strictly structured documents with multiple third party integration, extended printer support, and full media utilization then you are looking in the wrong direction. Try some other commercial bloatsoft application. What you will find here is a quick loading, Non strict, modeling environment that tries to bring modeling back to its basics. The work space is an unlimited space that can be scaled and zoomed independent of browser zoom. The images that can be saved are fitted to the scale of the model that is being worked on but can only be downloaded as a whole model image. If you are working on a very large diagram that image will be very large in pixel size. Thankfully it's a .PNG format. The non strict nature means that you are never tied in by special rules or format types. All elements that can be created, for whatever visual models that are available, can be added in. Where elements may be useful for class or use case diagrams means nothing for any restrictions on functionality. All objects are treated just as they are, with nothing more then shape, text, and anchor points as a variation. Advantages/disadvantages: Being a Google Docs app, the work space is collaborative. The user can invite team members to the app and work on larger scale models or mind maps. Having modular tools and being so lightweight allows it to be used and edited quickly with no restraint on what type of model needs to be created. Unfortunately(Like JavaScript) the free flowing environment with few rules and little restriction requires a user who knows their job. Users who need to model a use case for client interaction should be intelligent and well informed on the purpose and subject that they are working with. If the task is intended to be a presentation then the back to basics nature of the app may leave it falling short. Conclusion: All in all, this application is perfect for students and agile/extreme practices where more output is required at a quicker pace. Where secondary software or presentations are required then a more specific program may be needed.

This is a joke right? I can't magically summon what ever i draw on my chromebook. My friend told me that would happen so i drew what any normal person would draw ( the people i keep trapped in my basement) but they didn't show up. Now i thought it was because i drew 5 people instead of one thing so i drew a wild cougar but that didn't come alive either. Now i live on the streets because i sold everything to buy this app. You'd think an app design to rip you off would be cheaper but no it's super expensive. I'll have you know my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandmoter was Steve. ya thats right my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandmoter was Steve from minecraft. I bet your super jelous. I'll send you an autograph if you give me your credit card number. Oh yea right my mother's mother's mother's mother's mother's mother is a dead lawyer and i will dig her up to sue you .

$2.50 per month if you want private documents. Another bait-n-switch. I have no problem in a developer wanting to make money; I have a problem with them withholding important, yet basic, information (like "all your stuff is publically viewable unless you pay a subscription"). Deleting.
