Pros: It is an easy to learn and very intuitive tool, they can be performed from small to large and complex diagrams.

Cons: It is a very powerful tool, its only detail is that it has a somewhat old user interface, it would be good to update its user interface.

If you need to make an outline quickly and without complications of any kind, the best thing you ca

Pros: That is a very complete graphics editor and really easy to use. With it we can make schemes, flow diagrams, concept maps, circuits ...

Cons:
Because it is free, it puts us in a delicate position that may already have lost the formality and responsibility for the part of the programs to the point of leaving the project and users without alternatives.

Overall: that I could use to make entity-relationship diagrams, UML diagrams, flow diagrams and network diagrams

Pros: DIa is a fast and lightweight app to draw flow diagrams. It has all the needed tools to implement even complex diagrams

Cons: The only downside about Dia is, in my opinion, the old look that it has. The interface looks quite old and not perfectly refined, it should be innovated a bit.

I use it to create diagrams of small processes for internal projects.

Pros: It is a simple application for creating diagrams, it does not require much instruction to start using it. Installation is simple, takes up little space and is compatible with Linux, MAC and Windows.

Cons: I do not like to use it to create complex flows because everything would be manual, which makes the process very argus and tedious. Additionally, the figures that represent the network components are very basic.

Overall: To create diagrams of small process flows for projects is ideal.

Pros: Saying the Pros of this app is very simple, because is a "network diagram dedicated tool" that gives to IT admins the basic to represent their network topology and structure, very very easy to use, and it can be installed on my windows and mac machines. And It's free.

Cons: I enjoy this app because is easy, but I have to say that components pictures are the most basic things I've seen for this kind of apps.

Pros: What I like most is that it is a light program. It works completely on most computers. Does not slow down the machine.

Cons: What I like least is its interface could be a little more eye-catching since it's pretty simple,
but it can be improved.
