Creately Mobile App is designed to enable users - who are on the go - to easily view and collaborate on their diagrams.
Build and Support
If you are an Android user, we recommend to install from Android KitKat 4.4.2 onwards for a smooth experience. However, if you are an Apple device user, Creately mobile app is best run on iOS 9 onwards.
One thing to keep in mind is that Creately mobile is built for smartphone experience and will not run smoothly on tablet devices yet. Therefore, the recommended screen sizes are up to 6 inches. Do not worry, a tablet version is planned for future release.
If you have any questions on installing the app on your device, please drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Simple App, Assembled with Powerful Features
The focus of the mobile app is to Review and Collaborate on diagrams on the go. With the app, you get access to the following powerful features;
The mobile app stands as a diagram viewer, not an editor. The app is designed for the users on the go, for those who would typically need to reference and review diagrams and contents as opposed to creating content.
On the app you can access diagrams, including the diagrams and projects which are shared with you, as an editor or a reviewer. To view the details of a diagram, click on the information button (i), whereupon you can read comments and view hyperlinks in the viewer.
Details listed would be diagram owner, last updated user (useful when you are working as a team), diagram version, diagram type, description and diagram visibility type. These basic but really useful information, gives you important data on the diagram you are working on.
Another powerful feature on the app is the ability to view links in the diagram. When a shape has a Link on it, a link indicator shows up once you tap on it. If the Link Panel is open, the indicators will automatically show up on all shapes that are linked.
Review and Collaborate
The collaboration features of the Creately mobile app enable you to communicate on diagrams by simply adding comments and review changes your fellow teammates are making, on the go.
You can add/remove your colleagues, teammates, or even a third person as an editor or a reviewer. Invite one or more of your teammates by typing their email addresses or by sending the diagram link via any of your messaging apps. You can also change the role of the user who is being invited, to either Editor or Reviewer. By default it would be selected as Editor.
If you are on a Team plan, and would like to share a diagram with all of your teammates/colleagues, simply tick Share with all in the team option. This will give editing access to all team members working on the diagram.
View Link and Edit Link buttons let you copy the link of the existing diagram and use it to invite others as an editor or a reviewer. You can also share the image of your diagram along with its URL using any messaging app installed on your mobile device, with the Open in button.
Sign in and Sign up
All our existing users, irrespective of their Creately Plan can access the mobile app. To sign in simply enter the email ID and password, or use your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts. Once you login successfully, you will be able to see all your diagrams and projects listed.
If you are a new user who is using Creately for the first time via the mobile app (and doesn’t have a Creately account yet), you can use your email ID, Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts to register. Once you are successfully logged in, you’ll be taken to the Main menu.
A default set of diagrams and projects will be available in the account of a user who creates a Creately account via the mobile app, this is so that you will have content to view on the app. As of now, the mobile app cannot be used to create diagrams.
There you have it. Our simple and powerful mobile app to ease your diagramming experience. A range of new features are currently being developed, and you can learn all about it on our latest blog Beyond the Semicolon.
