LucidChart vs Microsoft Visio
Last updated: April 24, 2018
Lucidchart is your solution for visual communication. Flow charts, diagrams, UML sketches, and ER models have never been easier. We've redesigned the entire diagramming process to make it as easy as possible. Make flow charts, wireframes, mind maps, and org charts.
Create professional diagrams to simplify complex information with updated shapes, collaboration tools and data-linked diagrams. Simplify complex information with professional diagrams you can create in just a few clicks. Visio makes diagramming simple - whether you want to quickly capture a flowchart that you brainstormed on a whiteboard, map an IT network, build an organizational chart, document a business process, or draw a floor plan. Microsoft Visio free cloud alternatives are: Gliffy, Google Drawings, Creatly, DrawAnywhere, Diagramly

2016 - Microsoft Visio is coming to iPad to compete with LucidChart
Microsoft has announced a limited new Visio on iPad Insider Program that will help bring Microsoft’s diagramming solution to iPad. Visio will work on all iPads, from the iPad mini to the iPad Pro, and it will require iOS 9 or newer. It will be available in at least English, Chinese, French, German, Russian, and Spanish, during the pre-release period. You will need to sign-in with a Microsoft account. You'll be able to view files from OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or SharePoint, or files received as email attachments. The Pan and Zoom experience is optimized for a small touch screen. It allows to turn the visibility of layers on or off, copy the current view of a Visio diagram as an image and paste it in another app, share a file as a link or attachment, find text in a shape. So Microsoft Visio gets more iPad-friendly than LucidChart
