There is a free trial on the SimpleDiagrams website. After testing the app out for an hour or so, I'm impressed and will purchase. http://www.simplediagrams.com/downloads

Testing out the program, it seems as easy to use as OmniGraffle, which is a plus. The non-native Mac interface throws me though, but my main beef is with not having a cmd-H function to hide the app. @danielmcq: Please put in the standard Mac interface functions! Honestly, the lack of this one basic function makes me pause about buying this app. If you’re missing this, what else does this app not do that should be a standard function? And how long will it take for this (and others) to be added to an update? Makes me leery.

Even Todd can make cool diagrams with this app! I was thinking it only deserved 4 stars, and then I discovered the libraries of extra shapes here: https://www.simplediagrams.com/libraries Love it!

It's more than a 'simple diagram' - I could enhance even other images with it's comments and graphs. Really great!

I read some of the reviews and decided to try it, "Gardenhead" nailed it for me. Took me about 30 minutes to figure my way around around the app. My biggest concern and unknown was the "Size" of the pallet or doc or whatever you want to call the a page. The Author uses Pixels, and initially I thought that was absurd, however once I did a little research and wrapped my head around Pixels Per Inch and the Resolution variable, I set the document to 2500 x 3300 (~8.5 x 11) no problems. After the intital 30 minutes I knew I was going to buy the app but was trying to get a project done...finally this morning after I finished, I forked the $$$$ over and am VERY happy. This was the 3rd app that I tried and felt like I was going to end up using Excel....at least Excel wouldn't freeze and I would not loose all my data and have to start over like I did with the previous two apps I tried. GLAD I came across SimpleDiagrams..I was a little put off by the "Crayon-like" appearance, but found I could make things look VERY nice with the 'Clean' Style. Well Worth the Money... If I never use it again...it was worth it, but I can already see some things coming up.

The software is quite nice, but the constant battle to avoid installing macupdate desktop makes me question whether its worth bothering.

SimpleDiagrams is the Goldilocks of Mac graphics software. Omnigraffle (which I own) sits on one side as too large, too complex, and too expensive for knocking out quick diagrams. And Delineato Pro (which I own) sits on the other side as too simplistic, too unreliable, and rarely updated (albeit cheap). SimpleDiagrams comes loaded with many vectors sporting that "hand drawn" look. And you can import a bunch more for free. And pay for more for a few bucks if you like. Even better, you can easily import your own PNG or SVG files into the program (even those that don't look at all like they are hand drawn!). You can organize and tag them, AND very easily export your custom collection for import into another of your Macs. Sweet. Adjustments to colors, resizing, and all the fiddling you want to do are simple and intuitive. There is a straightforward online manual that explains the basics. Two minor quibbles regarding font selection: I'd like to set a preference for a default font, and want the font selector to access the system font collections so that I can quickly tap into my carefully honed fonts. But these are nits. The program is easy to grasp. Fun to work with. And a great value. I will be diagramming more with less hesitation because there is no reason not to!

Hi DrBop,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm really glad you find the program helpful. Good points on the font selection tool...I've added it to the list of TODO's!
