VisualDesigner is an impressive flowchart maker for Mac that doesn’t cost a dime for its extensive features. You can choose from tons of shapes and connectors, each customizable from its color to its size to its text.
The diamond symbolizes that a decision needs to be made. If there are only two choices, you can draw arrows directly from the diamond to the next step (example on the left). If there are more than two choices, you can draw them neatly by copying the example on the right.
Flowcharts are an incredibly powerful tool. They lay out complex processes into a much more simple and easy to understand manner, and complicated projects don’t seem so scary anymore. We’ve just discussed the best options for online-only flowchart services—some are completely free, and others offer just free trials of their premium plans. But like everything in life, you get what you pay for. That’s why we prefer Lucidchart when making flowcharts online.
Flowchart Designer is a great app for mac to try first. You can choose from basic, equation, rectangle, and flowchart objects. Just pick one and then drag and drop it onto the canvas. Insert duplicate objects by double-clicking a blue arrow and to add a connector, just drag the blue circle to another object. You can pop in text easily for all shapes and include labels for connectors.
Pencil is another cool flowchart app for Mac that comes directly from the company’s website. You will see a nice clear app interface and canvas to work with as soon as you open it. There is a complete set of flowchart objects, but for doing even more with the app, you can use web elements, widgets, and mobile stencils.
