Creately is a new online diagramming and design program which offers the bonus of collaborative access with multiple users. The devs have also thought about the whole process rather than just throwing in a screen sharing option, because you get built in commenting and annotation, as well as multi-revision support so you can revert to previous versions of your work if one of the team messes up.
It’s nowhere near as pretty an interface as Omnigraffle, but the functionality is definitely sophisticated and there are lots of useful features locked in to make it easy to produce and edit your designs. All in all a nice effort, and currently offering a free version plus a Pro version which is being offered on a ‘Name Your Price’ special monthly subscription offer. Well worth a look.
KObjects is a patent-pending technology that allows us to embed intelligence into the shapes that you use for drawing. Without KObjects, you diagram is a static image that cannot be validated or enriched with data. With KObjects, we have embedded the real life behaviors and characteristics of these objects into the shapes that you draw with. Knowledge of the object’s behavior allows Creately to validate your diagrams as you draw them and provide instant visual feedback so you can get on with the important stuff – just like a SpellCheck for diagrams.
