Digging for more money...

$300 for the device and an additional yearly fee to see what its measuring. Really? And if thats not enough, you have to sign up with a subscription to “try out” the app. Then, if you fork over the payment and decide a year later you don’t want it, you have to “unsubscribe”. I guess its too difficult for them to send you an email telling you the year is up and giving you a chance to decide if its worth $23 a year....or are they counting on the old marketing ploy that posits that you won’t remember a year from now that “automatic renewal” will kick in and you’ll be charged for an app that should be part of your $300 purchase.

I wonder which marketing genius this brainchild belongs to....

Developer Unfriendly

While the Muse SDK and developer tools were always late to market and underperforming, at least they understood the importance of supporting a developer ecosystem. In gutting the few services they had and releasing this paid app, it became clear that profits are way more important than progress. Par for the course, this application also under delivers with the bonus that you pay for the privilege. Perhaps the market is ripe for someone to package these truly cheap sensors in a way that is actually usable beyond some proprietary one-size-fits-all-but-actually-doesn’t meditation helper.

I hope this is a Beta

I found this app to be essentially useless. It won’t pair with my muse device most of the time (the regular muse app always does) and when it does pair that data it provides is non-sensical to me - a lay-user.

Like many people I’d like - more than anything- for Muse to tell me if I am dominantly in Beta, Alpha, Theta, or Gamma. I want more detailed information than just how long I was in “calm”, “normal”, and “active”, which the regular muse app provides. Please, Muse, make this data accessible and meaningful to a lay audience I. The regular Muse app.
