Each Muse board is like a whiteboard that can hold even more whiteboards. Stay in the ideation flow, worry about organizing later. Your boards grow organically over time, as you develop an idea or work on a project.
Grow your Muse into a space of interconnected whiteboards and content. Reference a board from multiple places with linked cards. Remix parts of PDFs and images with excerpts, and use source peek to view the context of the original document.
Developing an idea starts with collecting inspiration and stray thoughts. Muse lets you put everything on a single canvas: writing, scribbles, notes, images, videos, PDFs, web links, and any other files. Lay out all the raw materials, then connect the dots with ease.
Add collaborators to a Muse workspace to plan and strategize your next steps together. They'll feel right at home with live cursors, comments, following, and templates.
Muse is about putting down the broad strokes of an idea. Details must wait. Some features you might know from other tools are intentionally not part of Muse.
A slow burn
You won’t get Muse immediately, it takes a while. But actually it is insanely useful. They market themselves as a thinking tool, and that’s true but it’s actually so much more.
I can’t imagine living without it now
If you’re an intuitive thinker and despise linear tools like Notion, you will fall in love with Muse.
For once a thinking app that is actually useful
I had given up on mindmapping or thinking canvas tools long ago, but the other day I stumble upon this YouTube video that showcased this app, and the approach seemed worth a try. It paid off!
This is insanely useful, because unlike mindmapping tools, this app allows for chaotic thinking (the way thinking actually is). The magic trick here is that you can put a canvas inside a canvas inside a canvas and so forth and link any of them to the any of the previous ones, allowing for complex and unordered relationships.
"When something can be like work or like play, never make it work"
Thinking things through, sketching, storyboarding, reading, annotating, planning with Muse never feels like work. It's more fun than the text-first apps, more fluid than all the other canvas apps.
The Muse app is like an app from far in the future.
I own and use pretty much every note taking and productivity app and there is nothing like Muse. It's like an app from the future. There is no friction to Maserati paced creativity.
