SimpleDiagrams is a very light weight AIR application for creating diagrams which has been just released early last month. This little and simple project has been started by Daniel McQuillen with the intention of describing user experience flows. Speaking to Daniel, he might be willing to incorporate some pieces of the Interactive Sketching Notation in future versions. Look out! :) In his own words, some of the features include:

* Drag, drop and size symbols from libraries
* Add photos and post-notes
* Various background styles (chalkboard, whiteboard, etc.)
* Save diagrams on your computer
* Export your diagram to PNG

Try it out here.

    I just dont have an practical use for this application. I generally use Omnigraffle for all my interface design and this isnt enough to push me over the edge. I hate AIR also….I never understood the benefit of Adobe AIR. It's more bloated and half of the features that we've had for years in the Desktop Development world…

    Fair enough, but "hate" is a strong word. :) Emotions aside, here is an interesting critique and discussion of AIR:… Surely, this tools is simple and might not push people over the edge, but it definitely has potential. Cheers.

    "the benefit of Adobe AIR" -> Cross-platform goodness?
