This week MacSparky is sponsored by the app that I use as my own personal graphics toolbox, OmniGraffle. OmniGraffle was created as a diagramming tool but it is so much more. Using OmniGraffle’s powerful, but easily understandable tools, I am able to not only make diagrams but also maps, flow charts, court exhibits, garden plans, countless school projects, and even the family Christmas card. If I’m doing something that involves moving pixels around the screen, OmniGraffle delivers.
OmniGraffle users range from artists to data mappers to (even) geeky lawyers. The tools are fast and easy to learn and there are versions of OmniGraffle for Mac, iPad, and iPhone. I frequently hear from readers that are OmniGraffle-curious. They are interested in the app but not sure whether it is something they need. My answer is always the same. If you have OmniGraffle, you will find uses for it and the diagrams you make in it will look professional and better than anything you’ve been making before.
The OmniGroup has recently released OmniGraffle version 7 and the app has so much polish now. Everything is cleaner and easier to use and access to Stenciltown (where you can import and use other folks’ art work in your diagrams) is easier than ever. Best of all, there’s a free trial so you can download and try it risk free. Up your diagram game today with OmniGraffle.
