Canva is a graphic design application compatible with the Android and iPhone (iOS) platforms.

Canva has a wide variety of registered templates, including flowcharts in diagrams and processes. You can edit an existing template by tapping on it and adjusting to your needs, or you can create a new one.

It is also possible to create layouts as a flowchart from PowerPoint with Office Mobile, which is available for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones. In the app, just create text boxes and add colored arrows and rectangles to create a mind map. In addition, the user can add a photo saved on the device as a background.

The Office for mobile application is very open when creating PowerPoint slides, making it possible to sort the text boxes and figures available on the platform. The downside is that the cell phone is difficult to control the size and position of the text boxes, since the shapes are small on the smartphone screen.
