- It’s free, there’s no registration required and collaboration using Google Drive or Dropbox (of a sort – just sharing really) is possible
- png, gif, jpg and svg image versions can be exported.
- Source files can be saved and re-imported from your computer if you don’t want to store online.
- A huge number of predefined shapes and images – UML, BPMN and mobile device mock ups are well catered for
- Search and insert images flagged for commercial re-use from Google.
