Comments from some of those who selected OmniGraffle as one of their Top Tools in 2019

“a lot of thinking comes from reflection, both with the blog for thoughts, and through diagramming my understanding. Diagrams allow us to map conceptual relationships to spatial ones to facilitate comprehension” Clark Quinn, USA https://blog.learnlets.com/2019/08/top-10-learning-tools-for-2019/

Previous comments

“another way I make sense is to diagram. And…while I’m a bit grumbly at their support right now, OmniGraffle is still my ‘go to’ tool for this. I don’t need all the power, and it’s expensive, but I haven’t found a replacement yet that works as intuitively.” Clark Quinn, 2018

“Easiest tool for creating diagrams.” David Bryson, University/College teacher, UK, 2016

“the diagramming tool I use, and diagramming is a great way for me to make sense of things.” Clark Quinn, 2015

“diagramming is the other way I think out loud, and I’m regularly getting my mind around things by diagramming” Clark Quinn, 2014

“brilliant for diagramming. I’m visual/conceptual and it works the way I want and makes my output look good (I went back and recreated old diagrams just because it was so fun; when’s the last time you said that about productivity software?)”  Clark Quinn, 2013
“OmniGroup’s diagramming software is for much more than drawing diagrams. It’s useful for doing concept maps, outlining chapters in a book, illustrating statements and proofs of theorems — I even used it to redesign my kids’ playroom at home. Better than a paint program and way simpler than something like Adobe Illustrator.”  Robert Talbert
