Muse is a canvas for thinking that helps you get clarity on things that matter. Think in private or collaborate with others.
with nested boards
Each Muse board is like a whiteboard that can hold even more whiteboards. Your boards grow organically over time as you develop an idea. Stay in the ideation flow, worry about organizing later.
REFERENCE & REMIX
with linked cards & excerpts
Linked cards let you reference boards from multiple places. And excerpts let you remix parts of PDFs and images without losing the context of the source. Grow your Muse into a space of interconnected whiteboards.

Ratings and Reviews
Brutal minimalism, be damned: Muse’s organized chaos wrangles your files, photos, drawings, and text to provide a perfect brainstorming workspace. If you need to go deeper, Muse’s unique file structure lets you jump in and out of its signature boards with a flurry of slick gestures.
My fav note taking app
This is way better than any note taking app out there. Way better than good notes. I have literally downloaded every note taking productivity organizing app out there for ideas and gathering research and information. This is the best because it lets you see all your thoughts in one place without having to flip through pages, instead you zoom in. Please give the app more features. It would be awesome if it had an infinite whiteboard feature for the boards instead of just extra room on the right side. Make it so you can zoom in and out from all directions so we can have more space to put more cards on the board. I’m running out of room for my cards and I want to be able to see them all zoomed out without having to scroll to the right side of the screen.
Perfect if you’re willing to not be perfect
I used different apps in my class to use technology more effectively. However, I would lose hours getting everything polished, and ultimately never use that template again.
You can’t lock things into place. You might resize something by mistake. If you’re not OCD like I am or willing to let it go, it lets you work efficiently. The export to an interactive PDF is amazing and how I share personal “portfolios” for each of my students during class.
Upcoming features that include view-only link sharing is the reason why I subscribed. If you are mindful of clutter, you will be fine with the free version. Just download backups.
