Flowgorithm is a useful application because it saves you a lot of time. By this i mean that we were used to draw an algorithm on a piece of paper and then copy it neatly on a word document using the appropriate shapes. Moreover, work will be much more presentable by using this application rather than typing programs in a text editor. Flowgorithm works really simple, just by dragging the classic flowcharts symbols and linking them as necessary. Another advantage is that one can concentrate on building the algorithm rather than focusing on the code to program it.
I highly recommend this application to be used in a Computing lesson. One of the main reasons is that one can introduce a programming language by using this Application. Building up a flowchart can be automatically converted to several programming languages. At least, before they start learning a new language, students could become familiar with the syntax. Another thing is that, students will have all their worked saved and organized on their computer, which they can share with their friends online.
In the link that I have listed below, there are some tutorials to help you get familiar with this application and also some examples solutions. Moreover, there is a forum where you can ask questions and discuss certain problems that may emerge.
