Compared to the other services, Gliffy is a bit more barebones. It’s a good option when you need to flowchart an idea quickly and easily. You can create any flowchart in just a few clicks. There are basic templates available that make it even easier to reach your final product. However, when you start to get down and fine-tune your flowcharts, the editing process is not as smooth as others, like Lucidchart. There are a few quirks that may slow you down a bit, but snap-on grids and other alignment tools are nice to have.
One more free flowchart maker for Mac that’s worth your time is Draw.io. You can use the application online or download it to your Mac. This tool also offers a crisp interface that’s similar to applications you’re familiar with using a simple menu at the top and helpful sidebars.
The rectangle symbol is your go-to symbol. It represents any step in the process flow you’re diagramming and is the workhorse of the flowchart diagram. Give it a lump of sugar and it will love you forever.
