Web-based UML diagramming apps

If you need to quickly create a UML diagram, I've found a couple of sites provide a simple way to convert simple text representations into nice, attractive UML diagrams.

WebSequenceDiagrams.com

This site is great for creating UML sequence diagrams.

Alice->Bob: Authentication Request
note right of Bob: Bob thinks about it.
Bob-->Alice: Authentication Response
WebSequenceDiagrams.com example

yUML

yUML.me easily creates both class and use case UML diagrams.

[Customer]+1->*[Order]
[Order]++1-items >*[LineItem]
[Order]-0..1>[PaymentMethod]
yUML class diagram example
[User]-(Login)
[User]-(Logout)
(Login)<(Reminder)
(Login)>(Captcha)
yUML use case diagram example
