If you want to organize your thoughts, your projects, or even your friends graphically using boxes and lines, OmniGraffle is your tool.

As to the price, everyone should think about the benefit in a long run. Think about these cheap, so-called easy to use apps that actually make things not easy and disturbing to go before this one, they are not pricey, but you know what? They can’t even be used when needed.....YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, that’s something you should remember about.
Now back to the app, it almost covers everything in my work that I have to get done with, mainly the flow charts and org charts. Previously a crash problem happened when canceling an export while the Font Panel was showing, now that the bug has been fixed then things went pretty good I think. Overall, it’s worth a try and a pretty much reliable one.

Use OminGraffle everyday for work. Version 6 totally sucks. Hate the UI. Back to version 5.

I use this for drawing flow charts and it is a breeze to use. No other app comes close.

But it is very expensive imo. A price tag for around $25 would be more acceptable.

Diagrammix may be more in your (and other's) ideal price range.

It is expensive, but they don't charge that often for an upgrade.
I use OmniGraffle 3 since 2009 and OmniOutliner since 2005 (?) without extra charge.

price is ridiculous in typical Omni Fashion
otherwise good software but price makes it a no go. Also templates and objects are design wise fairly outdated could do with some nice web 2.0 templates to create graphs

"templates and objects are design wise fairly outdated"

Just learned that you can import symbols from www.graffletopia.com, which has a very large and free library.

As a long time OmniGraffle user, I'm happy to upgrade. They are MORE than fair. I haven't paid an upgrade fee in years. If you think it is too expensive, consider that you are buying from a solid company that is in business for the long haul. I can't count how many $9.99 apps I have tried since the App Store opened that have not been updated or have been dropped.

The feature set is worth the upgrade price alone, plus the company is solid. They have great education discounts too.

It's amazing. A little bit pricey, but worth every penny! the best software that I have used these days. Stable, full of features, easy to use. I also use it to design spaces in my courses in college. Fully recommended.

So you gave OmniGraffle 5.x a 1 star rating in every category because there wasn't a curly bracket stencil. Reported for being an ass.

I was looking for a Visio-type program for the Mac and was very excited to find OmniGraffle. The program appears to be an excellent solution for Mac users needing diagramming tool.

However, don't be fooled. After one hour of pleasant use, I needed a curly bracket/brace {} stencil. For the next hour I scoured the entire program looking for this basic stencil to no avail. This is one of the most basic of tools in Visio and is even easy to find in PowerPoint. A simple web search indicates that users have complained about this on OmniGraffle's own blog since 2006.

Thanks, OmniGraffle for including a country map of Botswana but for leaving out a bracket. 1 star for the wasted time caused by the idiocy of this omission.

er, just a crazy crazy thought, but perhaps there isn't a 'bracket stencil' because its quite easy to insert the brackets from the input menu or straight keyboard input? After all, why waste time on a stencil for something included in every font.

Please check out www.graffletopia.com

There is definitely a bracket stencil available there. There are hundreds of other free stencils as well.

A little bit of searching would have led you to that site. A one star review was not warranted.

Since Snow Leopard OmniGraffle is very very slow to launch ... the colored wheel turn and turn...
Unfortunately, I love this software ;)
