Lucidchart vs. Creately: A Comparison
Lucidchart and Creately are both popular web-based diagramming tools. Lucidchart has greater ease of use and a more robust toolset for professional and enterprise users. This comparison sheet clarifies the differences between our products and highlights why we personally believe Lucidchart is the superior diagramming solution.
I review a lot of software and apps; that means it’s hard to impress me. But Lucidchart has succeeded in doing so, with its emphasis on helping users to produce professional-looking diagrams quickly and easily, with intuitive functionality that lets users get common tasks done with a minimum number of clicks. More than once, while I was working with it, I found myself smiling and saying, ‘Wow—that’s cool!’mindmappingsoftwareblog.com/lucidchart-review
As you know, I never ever ever publish anything from vendors, but I just really like Lucidchart and appreciate that they are giving educators and students this amazing tool for free.friedtechnology.com/2012/12/fry-up-easy-graphic-organizers-and.html
Lucidchart can apply Smart Themes to your flowchart with one click. You can also customize and apply your own theme and style options. No other diagramming product in our space offers this feature.
More polished look
Lucidchart's flexible design choices and customization options come together to create clear and aesthetically pleasing diagrams. You'll see a noticeable difference between our diagrams and Creately's.
Lucidchart makes it easy to illustrate real website functionality with interactive wireframes. Switch to demo mode and show your clients their site or apps new appearance and interactivity options.
At Lucidchart, we value your privacy and the sensitive nature of your documents. Regardless of your account level, Lucidchart does not make any of your documents publicly available by default.
Creately offers real-time collaboration but doesn't provide chat or comment functionality. With Lucidchart, you can make comments to shared documents, chat while you are working together, or even start a Google Hangout directly in the editor.
We have many libraries that Creately is missing, like Android mockups, AWS architecture, and process engineering. Lucidchart's libraries also generally include more shapes and sub-sections.
Which program is a better value for me?
- Lucidchart is more affordable when it comes to integrations (like Confluence and JIRA), because you pay only for what you need.
- We offer free premium licenses to all students and educators.
- Creately limits personal accounts to only 5 collaborators. With Lucidchart, collaboration is free for an unlimited number of users.
