1. 1888 Quick Flow Chart Creator

1888 Quick Flow Chart Creator is a free flow chart application. This particular application doesn't really measure up to the paid applications, but it will get the job done.

The program provides a series of flow chart symbols that you can place on the screen and connect to one another. You also have the ability to change the color of the symbols or add text to them.

The program is fine for creating a basic flow chart, but it isn't really conducive to high precision work. There don't seem to be any tools to help you line up the objects that you place on the screen, so producing a clean looking flow chart can take a bit of practice. The software could also benefit from some better documentation, as it took me a few minutes to figure out how to use some of the features.
