    Sketch review by Ashley M.
    "Remember the first time you used Sketch?: Sketch still feels incredibly lightweight to me – as a UI designer of a number of years using Adobe tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator, switching to Sketch felt like switching from a sledgehammer to a feather – how could UI outcomes possibly be this high-fidelity and not cause the bloat of 100, 200MB+ file sizes? Sketch has evolved with the needs of the product community and still fuels other apps and tools that seek to replace it, such as Framer. It is indispensable."

    Lucidchart review by Dwight N.
    "Excellent tool to create, show processes and workflows.: This program that has caught my attention because I like his intuitive and easy to learn interface. The cost is very low, so your accessibility will not be a problem. Basically the wide versatility of forms and options gives me a lot of flexibility beyond the standard flow chart. I am fascinated that I can share links to dynamic versions of graphics; I can switch between cells and arrows within the sheet without having to change the functions in the side panel, it saves me a lot of time these functions."

    Draw.io review by Matias L.
    "Straightforward interface with direct capacities: The most critical advantage of the product is a straightforward interface with direct capacities. You can become accustomed to the UI in around five minutes, as the design is intuitive and clean. It furnishes clients with extensive archives of symbols and layouts, and I generally find an appropriate component there, so I don't need to use image stocks. A critical element is the ability to gathering things and label them, which makes them simpler to oversee. Plus, you can export documents in different formats because of the capacity, you don't need to look for a record conversion tool, as it's inherent. Putting away documents in a cloud is easy in dint of integration with Google Drive and different services."

    "Great Organizational Tool : Pingboard has become my go-to when I need to locate someone by phone or email, as all contact information is right there beside their photo. I also love the fact that there are pictures which are searchable; even if I don't know someone's name I can find them by their face and get all the info I need to reach out to them. Pingboard offers a great alternative to a company flow chart and an organizational contact list, as it combines these two things into one. I like having that convenience, and the convenience of being able to access this dynamic information from any place. "

Lines, user controllable curves (I really like these)... and a lot of other stuff I haven't even gotten to using. (Oh, and it's free!) "

    ConceptDraw PRO review by Harry S.
    "Your company can express itself in the best way with this software.: From my point of view it seems to me that this is an acceptable software mainly because it has a very nice interface and draws much attention from graphic designers, on the other hand, the accessories that the ConceptDraw PRO interface has are interesting. The tools and options that this software has are good, useful and professional, making all the projects I do very formal, decent and incredible. Another point that I like a lot about this software is the great variety of templates that has this software, in addition, templates are so beautiful that it is so difficult to choose one. I really like that through this software we can create the slides in a very easy and fast way but the best thing about this is that the slides are very nice and give a very good impression. For the exponents of the slides (which are about the future work of the companies or other topics of interest) it is easier to speak in public because the slides are very easy to handle."
