Game Changing App for Business and Life

The team at Muse have created an incredible product oriented toward creativity and organization. The app uniquely manages to combine a blank canvas with structural organization, in turn presenting an opportunity for unrestrained thought and productivity. Never before have I been more effective in terms of idea generation and project development than I have with Muse at my disposal. In addition, the founders behind Muse have been incredible to work with. Their ability to source feedback on the product (and most importantly, act upon it) has allowed them to take a game changing application and continually improve on it. With a dynamite product and a special team committed to improvement, Muse will only get better with time. I’ll be along for the journey, and am excited to see how this app will impact others in similar ways to what it has done for me.

Spatial Notes and Organization FTW

Like many, the linear aspects of most note taking apps is fine for a bit, but doesn’t allow for enough depth once thoughts really start swirling. Having had a chance to use Muse for many months, I’m happy with the more spatial/layered flow to notes and content which makes it thru this app.

Downsides have been minor (syncing between multiple iPads, some layout issues which various updates have solved), the upsides have been more than solid.

This isn’t a collaborative notes app. Muse is much more geared for ideation and contemplation. To that end, it’s so focused that when it’s compared to others it seems to fall short. Yet, that that focus which makes it perfect for depth and space. Between the gestures, required Pencil aspect, and the light UI iterations, you don’t feel it’s expanding beyond your scope of use.

Muse might not be for everyone (a friend puts Notion on the opposite end, another Mural/Miro). But, for whom it clicks, Muse nails this quite well. Recommended for sure. But, do the trial first... it will help you focus on what you need best from a notes app.

Completes IPad workflow with direct outlet for creativity

Muse, completes the iPad workflow—it’s an open space that allows one to bring together, photos, drawing, sketching, and typed text into an awesome visualizer. It is so much fun to use and see ideas go directly from your brain to your iPad in a visual, shareable way.
My handwriting is terrible, so the text tool keeps things clean but there is just enough capabilities of the Apple Pencil to connect the dots from your head to the screen.
