The arrow symbol is used to guide the viewer along their flowcharting path. And while there are many different types of arrow tips to choose from, we recommend sticking with one for your entire flowchart. It’s less confusing and generally more aesthetically pleasing.
Another completely free option for your consideration is Wireflow. It is the perfect tool for web developers and app designers. Wireflow is a beautiful flowchart tool for designing user flows and wireframes.

There are many connectors to choose from, and everything’s manageable through drag-and-drop.

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.

You can pop in text easily for all shapes and include labels for connectors.
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.
