What good is a cheap diagramming app? If you’ve never used a diagramming app on your Mac, then Shapes is the one to try because it’s affordable, easy to setup and use, and it will help you think better. Seriously.
If you’ve used diagramming apps on Macs or PCs in the past, but were put off by the expense and complexity, then Shapes deserve a try. On the other hand, if you’re not an engineer, but you’ve had to diagram something in a hurry, then you’ll understand why less expensive diagramming is better than more expensive diagramming.
Shapes is simple and gives you most of the basic diagramming features that mortal men would need. Flow charts, organizational charts, wireframes, procedures, and more are simple clicks and drag and drop actions right on your Mac’s screen.
If Anheuser-Busch can make a a lite beer for Budweiser, why can’t Mac app developers create a diagramming app that’s both useful and fun to use?
Totally self explanatory, right?
In a single window Shapes gives you basic diagramming shapes and a few tools for each. For example, you can change the fill and stroke of both lines and shapes, and position them perfectly on the Shapes window space.
Shapes can be moved quickly back and forth, front to back (or back to front). Shapes can be grouped, deleted and changed in size.
The screen space is large enough to handle large diagramming processes or very large organization charts. This is a useful tool for web designers, engineers, programmers, teachers, and anyone who needs to display visual thinking.
Diagramming apps can be expensive and complex. Shapes is neither. It’s not quite as robust as Diagrammix, which costs almost $20, but nearly as useful, especially if you’re on a budget.
