Online Diagram/FlowChart (2009/09/14)

Creately

Flash/Flex

very pretty

"data validation"

Not super clear, but the website talc about using "KObjects" to embed logic within shapes for validation and other purposes... example not really on point, but seems to indicate that it's an approach to support different diagram types with behavior at the shape level rather than in the app itself  

I-go-you-go collaboration

Lucid Chart

Javascript

live collaboration

most basic look of those reviewed

EULA claims charts produced as property of Lucid Chart

contact Lucid Chart guy

very interesting, looking for partners; ask about REST API and ding on ludicrous EULA chart ownership... so bad that one cannot use the chart for *any* purpose whatsoever, as written I can't even print it to take to a meeting or display chart on screen

Lovely Charts

Flash/Flex

collaboration in premium only

looks good

Gliffy

Flash/Flex

REST API big part of app

can even create/update diagrams outside app

look great

large, navigable shape library with usage hints

search online images

upload images

overall solid, but a few small bugs

- connector arrows sometimes end up pointing wrong direction or skew off the connect points; jiggling the ends seems to fix it -process text sometimes want to go in center of shape (like task) - Ctrl-G, Ctrl-U, cut and paste, and I suppose all shortcuts do not work (on Mac and Linux) -allows save with no changes - BPM "data object" does not export correctly to SVG (as read by inkscape at least) - awkward to move a documents to another folder - awkward to create a document in anything but the "account folder"

missing features

project planning usage suggests integrated tasks a big plus

size shapes to text

no auto-save; like the revision stuff, but auto save (ala Mind Meister, Google Docs) with "Commit Revision" would be best

vertical text placement

Summary

wanted to try lucid chart first, but ludicrous EULA killed it

currently trying Gliffy, so far quite impressed
