Create Diagrams And Flowcharts Using Lovely Charts [groovyTips]

Groovy Freeware Reviews, Updates, Downloads, Tips, Tricks, Tutorials, How-To, and HelpWhen you need to explain how something works, sometimes there is no better tool than a well-made flow chart.  Previously we discussed how to make flow charts in Microsoft Word, but this time we’re going to take a look at a unique web app that can do the same thing, perhaps even better.  Lovely Charts is easy to use, and best of all, free!

 

Using Lovely Charts, you can create groovy diagrams and flowcharts that look professionally done.  If you remember creating flowcharts in Word and other programs, it was slow and a bit cumbersome.  Lovely Charts is completely the opposite.  Personally, I would nickname the web app “Easy Charts” because it’s so easy to use and anyone can create a decent diagram in under 2 minutes.  Below is a sample chart from Lovely Charts.

Using Lovely Charts

7. Each type of diagram uses the same workspace, just a different tool from the left sidebar.  You can intermix objects from various diagram categories as much as you like, and there are a lot to choose from so have fun finding your favorites.
