You can download the Lucidchart app for iOS and Android for free but you’ll need to sign-up for a free Lucidchart account first in order to use it.

Teacher Review

The first thing you notice about Lucidchart for iPad is that adding shapes is extremely easy using the toolbar at the bottom. You can tap and drag to select an area, or turn on “Select” mode to select multiple shapes. You tap and drag to multi-select and drag out from the “+” symbol to quickly add a new shape.

You can also copy multiple instances of shapes and the shape panel lets you choose between any of your active shape libraries. It also allows you to pan, zoom, and move from shape to shape while in text editing mode, and you can tap on the canvas to dismiss text editing.


  • Great for creating diagrams quickly
  • Well designed, clear, easy to use interface
  • Imports Visio files


  • Limited compared to the web app
  • Still awaiting Gliffy import support

The basic version of the web app is available for free although to unlock all of the shapes and create unlimited documents, you need to upgrade to a monthly subscription.
