Monodraw for Mac — Helftone

Helftone’s Monodraw is like OmniGraffle for the

, and is therefore not merely fun and retro, but kind of amazing when you consider a lot of documentation relies on simple diagrams and many people are using trivial markup languages like Markdown for just about everything. I can’t tell you how often I draw a little diagram to illustrate a process into my documents or emails and something like this lets me compensate for my lack of skill in key areas that make these sorts of diagrams work well.

I’ve seen some web widgets that promise similar functionality but this one is a real treat to use, especially when pared with a tablet or Astropad. (PS Astropad is so awesome I shelved my Wacom.)
