Simple diagramming app.

Overview

Shapes is a simple, elegant diagramming app for OS X. Shapes gives you all of the most important features you need in a diagramming tool without all the extra cruft, and without breaking the bank!

Shapes is great for programmers and Web designers looking for a simple tool for quickly designing charts, laying out wireframes, or visualizing model relationships.

Shapes lets you get to work quickly by giving you just the basic tools you need in a slick, single-window, thoroughly Mac-native UI. Bonus: Shapes also offers full-screen mode. Woo!

I've been looking for an app like Shapes for the longest time. All I want is an app that I can use to draw simple diagrams or overlay arrows, shapes and text on an image. I have been using another app for this purpose, but always found it kinda kludgy, and a recent update has only made it worse. Along comes Shapes, I tried out the free version (available on the dev's website), and I bought it within 5 minutes. I love that it uses layers and layer groups (like Photoshop), and that I can save projects with all layers intact for editing at a later time. What a great app!

Nice tool for that price. Has many features like OmniGraffle and some that I'd like to see in OG:-), f.e. expand a group in the object list.

Ha!! I bought it within *4* minutes of downloading the trial version! (I also have and use OmniGraffle Pro, but I couldn't resist this little gem.)
