"Paginas WEB interactivas y modernas sin programar"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse es la unica forma fácil para un diseñador sin conocimiento de programación crear páginas web interactivas y modernas desde el cero con prácticamente total libertad creativa. Su uso es familiar a diseñadores ya acostumbrados a los demás programas de la familia Creative Cloud como Photoshop o Illustrator haciendo que el curva de aprendizaje sea bastante reducida y por hacer parte de ese paquete los costes de adquisición son bastante bajos

What do you dislike?

Lo están descontinuando, lo que será una pena si no lanzan una solución similar, es un programa que prácticamente no tiene competencia ni hay una alternativa para diseñadores que lo usan recurrir.

Muchos programas lo han intentado, solamente Adobe Muse consiguió hacerlo bien... es verdad que el programa no dejará de funcionar ni el código generado con el dejará de funcionar pero quedará inutilizado cuando las web exijan una nueva tecnología.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Que sepan que es un producto descontinuado, ya no habrá actualizaciones significativas ni incorporará nuevas tecnologias.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creación de páginas web a clientes sencillas pero con total libertad creativa, con Muse podemos hacer lo que quiera el cliente en términos de gráficos.

"The Ideal Website Creation Software for Creative Designers"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse was created by Adobe Corporation in response to the desire for creative minded people to make graphically driven websites without the necessity for learning code. Many of us operate mentally in an object universe -- and the ability to create stunning websites with skills inherited from Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator is fantastic.

What do you dislike?

Muse itself is wonderful, however a lot of the social integration has to be done manually. I would like to see 'factory templates' -- prebuilt basic Muse websites with all of the header and footer elements there available from Adobe in a way that you don't have to go to a 3rd party for solutions. That being the case, the 3rd party solutions are fantastic so maybe it's not really an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering Adobe Muse, I suggest a few hours of video training or the wonderful Adobe Muse Classroom in a Book. It will show you the full power of the software and save you time in the long run.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have built many business websites with Adobe Muse. I use the "Shopify Lite" solution as well and that gives me one of the most robust eCommerce designs tied to one of the most stunning and flexible website developer software -- an idea solution.

What Web Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Makes web design easy"

What do you like best?

I have only a tiny background in web design (HTML based) and dreamweaver makes it very easy to create webpages from scratch, especially if you're already familiar with other adobe products. I also like how easy it is to set up a "master page" as a template and have all of the navigation flow from page to page.

What do you dislike?

Most of the problems I run into are learning curve based. Usually anything I'm stuck on can be solved with a simple google search and a short video lesson.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you already use products from the Adobe suite and you need a tool design or mock up a website, Adobe Muse is a wonderful product worth using.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Works great for mocking up websites. You can use Muse to fully design and launch a website, but it also comes in handy during the initial design of a website to help visualize what the finish site will look like.

"Beautiful webpages without HTML knowledge"

What do you like best?

With Adobe Muse you can create beauiful and very profesional webpages without any previous html knowledge, its drag-and-drop, you have a huge community behind it and loads of widgets and templates available. The scoll effects allow you to easily add very impressive interactive effects to your webpage and the great availability of tutorials and learning material makes a must try to any designer trying to initiate on HTML.

What do you dislike?

It could be better at the code-level edition and tweaking, ince you start learning code and advance is kind of frustrating when you know how to fix it at the code level but how it generates it is a complete mistery, that said, Dreamweaver is part of the same package and can fill this gap without major problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can have a 30 days trial on adobecreative cloud and try it for fre to check if it meet your needs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a webpage made on Adobe Muse, it was replaced later on by Wordpress but we stilll maintain some specific pages made on muse... It was our main resource for creating webpages for some years and worked very well during this time.

"Otra manera de realizar diseño web"

What do you like best?

Es un programa para ilustrar y editar de uso fácil. Tiene muy lograda la característica de arrastrar un objeto y moverlo en cualquier lugar a un simple click. También me parece muy util y muy perfeccionada la edición del navegador por lo que puedes previsualizar el trabajo tanto en tu navegador como en muse. Tiene gran variedad de efectos, widgets y ejemplos de códigos y tutoriales para el uso. La característica fundamental es que te permite no utilizar formatos JPG o PNG gracias a los vectores escalales SVG.

What do you dislike?

Es un programa de creación bastante reciente por lo que hay otros que ya están muy establecidos en el mercado ofreciendote mas y mejores características y con menos conocimientos por parte de los usuarios.

Los tutoriales no son precisamente su fuerte ya que hay ciertos problemas con los idiomas y el mantenimiento de la web deja bastante que desear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si tienes la posibilidad de utilizar otro programa, te recomendaría Word press.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Por el momento no estamos utilizandolo pero en proceso de cambio a Wordpress por los beneficios que nos proporciona a la hora de trabajar y sobre todo el servicio tecnico.

"Fantastic software for designers"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is the dream of all designers who do not know web programming because it allows you to insert elements, texts, photos, vector images without writing a line of code, thanks to a simplified interface with planning, design and preview modes. It is possible to create beautiful websites, also with the help of widgets that increase the value of the pages and the interaction with the user.

What do you dislike?

I find the function for responsive design very useful, but sometimes it is not easy to use and you have to pay a lot of attention to all the elements, creating different groups. Moreover, when you insert the fluidity of the pages you can not use the scrolling effects that instead I find really useful to increase the appeal and design of web pages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

An excellent software, perhaps unique of its kind, to create websites without knowing the web codes and arranging the various resources just like working with Photoshop or Illustrator, a bit 'the dream of many designers to build websites of great visual impact and in a short time. I absolutely recommend using it because it is also very simple to use as regards the inclusion of various resources and widgets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before I started working with graphics mainly with print output, but since I discovered Muse I realize websites and landing pages for my clients, taking care of all the corporate corporate identity. Although I have a basic knowledge of html and css, I often prefer to use Muse to optimize the time available, and the results are optimal.

"Creation of web pages for designers"

What do you like best?

Muse is a software that surely can not replace Dremweaver, but it is an excellent tool especially for those who do not know html, css or javascript codes but still want to create web works, drawing sections directly and importing previously exported graphics from Illustrator or Photoshop. I consider it suitable especially for showcase sites.

What do you dislike?

It is not possible to realize everything that can be created thanks to programming codes, as it is also right to be. I find that Muse is too dependent on third-party widgets, as it has very few defaults, and the responsive functions are sometimes too cumbersome, although I find it very useful when you need to create web pages with engaging content.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Excellent software for those who make layouts for web or mobile devices but does not know the programming codes, so it needs to design the pages as it can in Illustrator or InDesign, with the addition of being able to insert very valid multimedia elements (slideshows, gallery, menus ...) and to be able to export in a very simple way in html.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Muse mainly to create showcase sites where design was very important, using widgets such as galleries, buttons, accordions and third-party slideshows. Muse is also very useful for creating landing pages or one page websites, having very good scrolling functions, and alternatively it can be used for creating prototypes.

"Simple and intuitive web design"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is suitable for websites that are easy to create and showcase sites in particular. Allows you to create web pages without necessarily knowing and writing codes such as html and css, so perfect for a designer who is unfamiliar with programming. Obviously it has different limits, but it is great for those who also use Illustrator or Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

It is not a CMS and therefore it is difficult to create a website with an administration panel or to insert news every day. Despite this, it is possible to update web pages thanks to the in-browsing editor and to a simple content management. Improved the aspect that concerns the responsive, you could insert more widgets for gallery and slideshows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As mentioned, it can be used both by designers who do not know the various web codes, and by experts in the sector who need to create simpler pages or websites, landing pages, interactive prototypes or portfolio websites. Muse is an intuitive software that works seamlessly with Illustrator and also allows you to create responsive web pages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Muse I have mainly created showcase sites for my clients or landing pages with call to action. In fact it is possible to use Adobe Muse also to create the first interactive prototypes of web interfaces or smartphones, in any case it allows the creation of web pages very quickly and efficiently.

"Elegant Results with minimal effort, especially if you're already used to Adobe software"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse delivers on the promise of being able to produce beautiful and very customized websites with almost zero coding while producing fairly bloat-free generated code. You really can create a website using basically the same set of skills as designing a poster or brochure in InDesign or Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

Adobe is rather slow in their development cycles and major updates to the program seem to lag, especially with Adobe Muse. It either isn't high on their priority list of software development or perhaps it is a harder application to develop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Muse is best for static websites, but not for blogs or interactive catalogs, etc., which require a database for the back end. Simple websites which are the equivalent of a brochure, or restaurant menu, or a small business, is perfect for this application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Adobe Muse in conjunction with other technologies and platforms, depending on the website, and we've found that if you want to quickly put a site together but not use something like WordPress, Adobe Muse will do the job promptly and efficiently. Once you move through the learning curve, it is easy and intuitive, and even if you do know how to code, Muse will spoil you by what you can put together with far less time and effort. Also, it has built-in support for responsive design, which is a must nowadays.

"The Adobe Muse Review"

What do you like best?

The Amazing Adobe Muse lets you create and design visually without needing to know code. It is easy to use and you can truly bring the design that's locked in your head to life on the screen. All without ever having to touch the backend of things. You marvel at the smooth capability. I simple start being more creative and engaging without thing about the tools. It's liberating. Its freeing and ultimately its allows me to be productive, which is what its all about and I can delivery great deliverables.

What do you dislike?

Although Muse is easy to use and one does not need to know code to use it, there are some drawbacks and hinderances. The code it does produce is far from perfect. There are not a lot of choices as far as drafting or designing options goes. Your pretty much stuck with only publishing and producing HTML based websites using Muse. For example, it would be nice more user friendly if we could export to a Wordpress theme or other platform choices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great tool to visually design a website. However, the code is not perfect and the design is a little rigid.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We attract independent Graphic Designers who are far easier and more frequently available than we do appealing to coders only. Thus Muse is a better, affordable and more stable option for those graphic happy people to utilize on this platform and with its amazing capabilities.

"I have been using Adobe Muse for over 5 years and designed a number of websites."

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is very easy to bring in assets from other programs and create a website very quickly and very easily. You can also edit your page to work responsively, to animate, add in widgets and get an amazing range of results.

What do you dislike?

I do feel that sometimes it can be unclear, when you design something and then go to preview it. Sometimes the results in the preview aren't clear as to what has gone wrong and what can be done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Once gain, with most adobe products, I'd recommend looking through the Adobe tutorials or even looking online for some. Also you can find some really cool widgets to use to get some cool results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At the minute, it is very easy to use Muse to create pages to link to our current site. It is also so easy to bring in animations and widgets to get cool results as well as vectors from Illustrator.

"Excellent web design without writing codes"

What do you like best?

The dream of all designers a few years was to be able to create websites or web pages without having to know the web codes, such as css, javascript or php. Although Muse does not allow everything, such as Dreamweaver, this is now possible and with truly surprising and visually striking results.

What do you dislike?

Obviously not everything is possible and many things depend on widgets that allow the creation of menubars, gallery, slideshows, contact forms and more, then insert more widgets directly within Muse and optimize the use of breakpoints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Muse is especially suitable for those who do not know web codes very well, but also for developers who value a lot and need to create very nice web pages in a short time. The results are in any case really amazing and excellent as design, too bad that the SEO is not perfect.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have made several websites showcase for customers who did not require excessive programming or the use of backends, in order to optimize the times, while still offering excellent results from the point of view of design. I purchased third-party widgets to improve my design.

"Great software without codes"

What do you like best?

I appreciate that Adobe Muse was made for the creative who is familiar with the Adobe Creative Suite. The program is very intuitive if you're familiar with the interfaces in other programs. I only had to use tutorials for a few specific things, and was able to figure out the rest by just poking around.

What do you dislike?

You can't use parallax scrolling with responsive design in the same time. Poor snapping features. When you're zoomed in it becomes slower to move objects around and they're not being snapped together as they're supposed to. All the text's has to be paragraph style unlike illustrator. If you're using opacity on mouse over for example it will create another image of the original in transparent mode and use it instead of using real css opacity option. A lot of unnececary code is being exported that in the end make your web pages run slower than they should.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try does some very cool stuff. Needs to support more complicated functionality down the road but great for a start really enjoy it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating mobile responsive web pages while not using WordPress or other content management systems. This was one of the main benefits to using WordPress to begin with. It also allows for much more design freedom, have grown annoyed using templates with limited design options (unless you are great at coding).

"Muse is the designers web developer tool"

What do you like best?

This program is extreemly powerful for any designers not interested in web developing or coding. I have built my personal website using Muse and I have had compliments on the uniqueness and function of my website over the template style sites.

What do you dislike?

I wish Muse had more templates and widgets. If there was a third party integration that would really take this platform to the next level.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe muse is a tool that can help small developers or designers with the ability to launch web sites with ease. This platform has a learning curve but once mastered it becomes a valuable program without needing to learn code, debug, or have a team of developers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe muse has allowed me to solve my own personal website needs as well as being a platform to create client websites.

"Adobe muse is a greatest software"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is a really simple web editor that enables you to develop and design websites without writing a single line of code.

Those of you who have been using computers for years now will surely remember Frontpage, the easy web editor created by Microsoft. Adobe Muse is in a way the heir to that program: a totally visual web editor with which you can create websites just like you write a paper on a word processor.

Creating websites in Adobe Muse is just a question of adding text and images, dragging and dropping elements around, and using the program’s drop-down and floating menus to customize options. No coding or developing skills required! The websites you can create are not very complex, but perfectly fine for a newbie.

What do you dislike?

The font UI displays an automatically generated list of recently used fonts. The number of recently used fonts to display can be configured and list can be cleared.

"Design your web without codes!"

What do you like best?

The ease of designing a website without the need to apply codes, is a great tool for designing simple and small static webpages. It has great features like parallax scrolling and responsive design. The best the compatibility with the rest of the adobe products. You can create an icon/logo with illustrator or edit and mockup a photo in photoshop and easily carry it over. Muse is not as robust as Dreamweaver, but is more easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The code output isn't clean, so if someone needs to edit the site later in HTML it is complicated. If you were not accustomed to Adobe products, you may have challenges learning the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are looking for an easy-to-use software that allows you to obtain professional results, Adobe Muse is the best option on the market. Its price in relation to benefits is quite accessible, an investment that will pay off for the company and with which it will provide satisfaction to customers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Muse has allowed us to develop websites "landing page" quickly, I'm using Adobe muse for small projects and projects that require specific design with no special site effects. The best thing about Muse is its ability to create a site in under an hour. With Muse, I don't have to worry about code at all, which saves me tons of time.

"Design your web graphically without the need for codes!"

What do you like best?

The ease of designing a website without the need to apply codes, the intuitiveness of its interface and the integration with the other tools of the Adobe suite.

What do you dislike?

The impossibility of editing files when they are created in different versions, since if you do it in a 32bit version you will not be able to edit it in a 64bit version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation for those designers or users of the Adobe Suite who wish to develop websites in html, but who do not have the ability to manage codes, is to start working with Adobe Muse. Since it allows to design websites from a visual environment, that is, 90% of the work will be done under the graphic composition, very similar to doing a work in Adobe Photoshop, manipulating images and texts, as well as an extensive variety of plugins and widgets that will undoubtedly allow the user to work harmoniously and without problems.

Therefore, if you are looking for an easy-to-use software that allows you to obtain professional results, Adobe Muse is the best option on the market. Its price in relation to benefits is quite accessible, an investment that will pay off for the company and with which it will provide satisfaction to customers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Muse has allowed us to develop websites "one page" quickly, allowing us to gain time obtaining high performance results, which has translated into the satisfaction of our customers.

"WEB Design for people with no coding experience"

What do you like best?

Muse is a great tool for designing simple and small static webpages. It has great features like parallax scrolling, responsive design, widgets etc. It is really simple to get started with and to use especially if you're familiar with adobe software.

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe muse really does what it claims to do. Is it perfect? no! But if you want to create your own website without coding or using wordpress or other software like it than Muse is the way to go. There are a lot of templates out there free and premium that can be customized and a lot of widgets also that can make your website just like professional websites out there. and yes, Muse gets better and better with every update

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using Adobe muse just for small projects and projects that require specific design with no special site effects. It really is a useful tool for 25 percent of all the web design projects that I get

"Very Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

The best thing about muse is it's ease of use and the compatibility with the rest of the adobe products. You can create an icon/logo with illustrator or edit and mockup a photo in photoshop and easily carry it over. It definitely has that ease of use when designing on the blank canvas, just like when you design in illustrator.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I dislike like is the code it writes. It's easy to carry it over into dream weaver and clean it up, but not so easy with other programs (like Wordpress). If it converted over easier to customize code as easy as it is to visual create things in here, it would vastly improve this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be familiar with Adobe Products and practice with their library of tutorials. Great program to practice building websites on if you want to gain some experience in this profession.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits I have experienced with Muse is the ease of use and the convenience of already having access with creative cloud. I'm fairly new to designing websites so having all of the familiarities, like tools and layout, of photoshop and illustrator make it easy to quickly design or mockup a website.

The best thing about Muse is its ability to create a site in under an hour. Yes you can do that with website builders like wix and square, but with those sites you are restricted with using templates. With muse you have full creative control.

What do you like best?

I appreciate that Adobe Muse was made for the creative who is familiar with the Adobe Creative Suite. The program is very intuitive if you're familiar with the interfaces in other programs. I only had to use tutorials for a few specific things, and was able to figure out the rest by just poking around.

There are limitations to building a website this way. Responsive web design is the norm nowadays, and it can get pretty clunky when you're trying to make things responsive using a program like Muse or using anything other than code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Squarespace is really another valuable option to consider if you dont have a ton of time to sink into the learning curve.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I built my entire portfolio site from scratch using Muse. It's very rewarding and offers a high level of customization. My site feels much more personal and I'm able to achieve exactly what I want. It feels great to not use a template.

"Great Tool For Those Who Are Not Code Savvy"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is a great website/webpage building software that allows the user to bypass the coding that is normally required. Like most of Adobe's products, Muse is intuitive and easy to pick up. You can learn this program by simply exploring.

What do you dislike?

The code is not 100% clean and the websites/webpages are not all responsive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is an excellent option for those who need a quick turnaround on a website and have little to no coding knowledge. In effect, you can create your website without touching a line of code. To some designers this is a miracle product!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Muse allows for those who are less savvy to make edits and build web pages and web sites faster. Many times we are rushed and overloaded on the development side. Muse helps in the interim.

"Web pages without writing code"

What do you like best?

Surely the best quality of Muse is to draw web pages without knowing html or css code, but inserting graphic elements just like with Illustrator, obviously with the difference of being able to insert multimedia elements or widgets.

What do you dislike?

In some cases it becomes a bit cumbersome and does not handle very well some elements, especially when the pages become responsive, moreover you should insert more widgets to allow more choice to the designer

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can create landing pages or showcase sites that do not require the use of admin panels or dynamic functions. Especially recommended for designers who do not like to write html, css or javascript code and have to make websites that are not too complex.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mainly create landing pages or showcase sites for my clients with satisfactory results and in no time, all without knowing html code.

"User friendly, flexible and open"

What do you like best?

I love that there is flexibility to design a website using familiar tools from other Adobe Creative Cloud programs (mainly InDesign and Illustrator) without worrying about having to deal with code. Muse makes it easy to create a modern-looking website, with optimal browser-friendliness. It is also fairly user friendly. After going through the tutorials Adobe provided, I was able to jump right in from scratch. The option to preview your work at any time without saving or exporting makes it very easy to tweak things, make adjustments and learn what works and what doesn't.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I'm not sure what there is to dislike at this point- I am new to this program, and still have much to learn. Some of the vocabulary is new to me, but I think just spending more time in the program will answer some of my questions. I do wish the User Guide included a simple vocab list for some of the self-taught designers like myself. It would also be really handy to be able to add dummy Lorem Ipsum text to a container, like you can with InDesign.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great alternative to using website builders like SquareSpace and Wix if you have some design knowledge, and want complete freedom in building your website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am not proficient at coding, so Muse does the job for me. I understand just enough about coding to know what I'm looking for, but not enough to be able to work quickly and efficiently. With Muse, I don't have to worry about code at all, which saves me tons of time.

"Muse is legendary."

What do you like best?

What I like best about muse is how amazingly simple it is to grasp, but how complex and intelligent the tools can be, through further training and exploration of the software.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Muse can throw a wrench in your workflow by forcing you to stop and adjust proprietary systems, which can be a nuisance (I.e. Breakpoints, page fluidity, etc), but this just takes some simple getting-used-to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's amazing software, but be patient with it; take your time learning and understanding the tools and build a great foundation for your web projects, because you don't want to have to fix something on the base of your project, when the project is near-completion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that I am solving with Adobe Muse are that instead of outsourcing web work, which can be extremely expensive, I am able to design a pretty stunning, state-of-the-art website in-house. The benefits are numerous: Upkeep is quick and painless due to it being my own design, monitoring and adjusting is done with a couple clicks of the mouse; it's great!

"Good software"

What do you like best?

I like that it makes web design very straight forward. If you have no coding skills it is fairly easy to learn the software, especially if you have use other Adobe software. I found that the interaction between other Adobe products is great, with the exception of Dreamweaver. There is a very familiar feel to the software which makes it easy to jump right in, with a bit of previous knowledge of Adobe software.

What do you dislike?

The code output isn't super clean, so if someone needs to edit the site later in HTML it is a bit complicated. I would rate the program much higher if the code output were better, and if it were easier to go between Muse and Dreamweaver. In general the software isn't great with anything code related. There have absolutely been improvements, but it still needs work. As they continue to work on HTML issues in the software I will revisit my review.

If you never plan on coding a site, it is a great tool, but going from Muse to Dreamweaver is cumbersome, and the code often needs work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building websites with no coding experience. If you are good with inDesign you should be able to pick up Muse easily. It does make building a nice website easier, especially if you aren't concerned with the code output. Aesthetically it works quite well. I really look forward to seeing what Adobe does with it in the future.

"ADOBE MUSE | FANTASTIC FOR SMALL BUSINESSES"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse allows "non-coders" to create dynamic websites by simply designing individual pages, similar to designing in Illustrator or InDesign. Easy to understand with an Adobe "background" and a great platform to build my e-commerce website.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is nothing I dislike about Adobe Muse, however I'm very familiar with Adobe products. If you were not accustomed to Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, etc., you may have challenges learning the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're comfortable with other Adobe products; i.e.: Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, etc. then you can be successful with Adobe Muse. Otherwise, there might be a learning curve - but there are great resources for learning Adobe Muse; videos, guides, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been able to build a dynamic website for a boutique food company, including e-commerce capability from a third party application. Understanding Adobe products allowed me to easily navigate Adobe Muse. I've benefitted from Adobe Muse as I was able to design a website with my aesthetic and branding without having to outsource the wotk

"Adobe Muse for Custom Websites"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is easy to use but allows for easy customizations. It also allows for easy set up of responsive sites. Adobe Muse is user friendly and the work flow makes sense when laying out pages for desktop, table and mobile settings.

What do you dislike?

I sometimes had trouble connecting to my hosting account to upload the sites created - I don't know where the error occurred. Laying out the initial grid from scratch can be a little tricky and Adobe's quick tutorials are helpful but often over simplify what you need to actually create for yourself. On both my macbook pro and imac I can only be working with Adobe Muse and nothing else or it lags and freezes, both have been updated and handle

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider your skill level and needs. I have found that using a template for Adobe Muse is helpful but I also work with other site builders based on clients needs and budget

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Custom, responsive website for business.

"I'm a Muser!"

What do you like best?

I love the freedom to design a site and it turns out exactly as I want it! I used to hand-code back in the day and that's time consuming. I've also tried templates and found them VERY restricting and frustrating! With Muse, I can focus on my passion and expertise, designing, and leave the rest to Muse!

What do you dislike?

The ability to further minify the code would be fantastic. I'm not crazy about having inline styles, but that comes from my days of handcoding, when you HAD to have beautiful code. Nowadays, it seems, with use of Wordpress, Shopify, Squarespace, and other templates, the code is ugly anyway.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot! It's a glorious way to design sites and with the ease of your typical Adobe interface! I love it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can focus on designing beautiful and super functional websites!

"Like it more than Dreamweaver."

What do you like best?

Dreamweaver was cool for what it is. If you're a hardcore want you hand in everything kind of designer than go for Dreamweaver. If you like being limited to what you can do from a creative perspective (or just be a master at coding) then go for Dreamweaver. However you like to just do what you want (while practicing good design, that you learned in college) then Muse is for you. It's basically like the Adobe Illustrator of web design. You can you just jump right in and get design how exactly you want things to be. You can even create links upon links of web pages. IT'S GREAT! If you want to know what the page looks like then Muse is the way to go. Dreamweaver allows you to see the code. Muse displays the design better. It actually emphasizes the design.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike when it crashes. One time I got so deep in a concept for a site that I forgot to save, and wouldn't you know, it crashed. So I had to recreate it, but it's was all good. Recovery got most of what I did. However for some reason for me, when it recovers lost data, it never recovers most of it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PREVENT CRASHING!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can get away from code and focus on the design. So I can design better sites because I'm not distracted with how the code is or waiting for the code I just set to mess something up. It allows productivity at work!

"The dream for every designer who does not know the web codes"

What do you like best?

Before Muse I had only created graphical interfaces with Photoshop, because I do not know web programming, but thanks to this software I finally created my own beautiful web pages and even entire sites for my clients.

What do you dislike?

I would like more choices regarding the use of gallery or other plu-ins in general because they would greatly enrich the web pages. What is not good is that it is not always possible to use the scrolling effects, which in some cases are disabled.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If, like me, you are not a developer, you must necessarily try Adobe Muse to create beautiful web pages without using code, creating professional-looking websites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to create websites from myself, without knowing programming codes, and without the help of developers, after having designed the graphic interfaces with Photoshop.

"Great For Simple Websites With Some Limitations"

What do you like best?

Muse is great from a designers perspective, making creative layouts has never been simpler. It sometimes feels like your using Illustrator or Photoshop more so than web development software. Great additional widgets (free and affordable options) to create some truly fancy looking designs. One of the coolest features is the ability to create responsive web pages easily through breakpoints. There is a bit of a learning curve but plenty of tutorials on Youtube to learn the basics. Oh and clients can do their own simple updates as well, easier than Wordpress or other CMS. Uploading to FTP is awesome no Filezilla or SmartFTP required.

What do you dislike?

There should be better support for creating blogs or e-commerce functionality. This is a necessity in a lot of cased meaning you won't be using it for more complicated websites. That fact that you can't access code mode easily sucks, especially for SEO. Forgivable but hope they make improvements here...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try does some very cool stuff. Needs to support more complicated functionality down the road but great for a start really enjoy it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating mobile responsive web pages while not using WordPress or other content management systems. This was one of the main benefits to using WordPress to begin with. It also allows for much more design freedom, have grown annoyed using templates with limited design options (unless you are great at coding).

"Powerful tools for your next website"

What do you like best?

The software offers you a lot of powerful tools that let you to create a great and high customizable website. If you don't want to create your own assets, or you do not have the time to, you can find images, templates and widgets created by the community. And of course you can use it. Some of these are free, but you have to pay for the majority of them.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunely we miss some minor tools that can help and improve hour work. (ie search-and-replace)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Even if there is someone with no experience in web design, I'll alway reccomend Muse thanks to its semplicity of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's impressive how easy is to create a website from ideas and with a short amount of time. Sometimes we just need a Landing page or an ad page, easily customizable with this app.

"A great software for virtually no investment!"

What do you like best?

Muse is very user-friendly and allowed my small business to be up and running very quickly. As a part of the Creative Cloud, it does not cost anything additional to use based on the monthly subscription.

What do you dislike?

When the software first came out there were some bugs, just like any software would have. Adobe, however, worked hard to get these resolved and has done a great job in keeping the software up to date and hassle-free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to take advantage of the extensive online learning video that Adobe makes available for free!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a professional high-school sports photographer Adobe Muse allows me to connect with student-athletes and their families and extended families. Together with my social media branding, I am able to have my name and message in front of 30,000 plus potential customers each month.

"Web Design. For the Designer. "

What do you like best?

The ability to make a shape move by simply getting the selection tool, selecting the shape, and moving it without having to write code. Let's face it, coding isn't for everybody, especially designers, Adobe Muse is in my opinion the easiest way to create websites with very little to no code whatsoever.

What do you dislike?

The compatibility issues. Unfortunately, Muse is not compatible with all platforms such as the older versions of Internet Explorer and Androids, which can be quite an issue if you're creating websites that would require those platforms. Muse is also mainly intended for basic websites with no more than 10-12 pages, anything more than that can be too complex for Muse.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating very user-friendly websites with much more ease. Without the reliability of developers, Muse can create quite compelling websites at a more affordable rate, solving the very same problems in a more swift, yet effective manner.

"Great tool for Prototyping"

What do you like best?

This is a great tool for designers without coding experience. It allows you to design directly in the app and then export working code that you can use in a website. You can import files from other Adobe products as well, but its not required.

What do you dislike?

The outputs Muse provides are not very advanced. I would not use it to create a complex, fully-functional website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Muse is a great product to experiment with if you have access to the CC library of products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Muse allows designers to create working prototypes of their designs without any coding knowledge or using any outside programs. This saves time and potentially consolidates multiple roles into one. You can design in the program and output a prototype directly. No need to change between multiple programs.

"Excellent non-coding webdesign software"

What do you like best?

It takes no coding skills and you can easily create websites in a matter of seconds. It has a lot of plugins to improve your websites, such as on Muse-Themes or other vendors have provided very grateful features to make it a compelling software. It's still useable for the next couple of years, until some new web features come out and Adobe Muse has to update it.

What do you dislike?

The responsive design layout, it takes times to adjust it for each devices and might be cumbersome to a few people. Sadly it got discounted by Adobe Muse. But they are still going to support the software for the next two years and until then it might be worth it to look for something else. Another downside was the slow performance, it's not running on the latest features on macOS for example, it's more of a port of the windows version.

We needed quick solving website solutions for our designers who are not familiar with coding.

"A great solution for graphic designers"

What do you like best?

This software it's a very easy to use for people who don't have programming knowledge. It allows to make very professional web pages. Adobe software is always up-to-date and offers news for all its users. Adobe Muse works with HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. Everything visual translates into these computer languages. It seems that Adobe is making time and effort in HTML5 and CSS 3. Adobe has many practical tools that you can learn on your own and that is a great advantage for beginning users.

What do you dislike?

I haven't negative opinion of this software. I think it's a wonderful tool. Adobe Muse allows me to build web pages professionally with very good results. I'm not a programmer, I'm a user that uses simple web pages and this tool is very helpful, so, it's wonderful. Although, it's more useful to know operation of a web knowing code, Muse is a way to start in that world.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend having a little patience at the beginning. Because the tool may seem difficult but with a lot of practice, very good results are achieved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest benefits I've had can make blogs, specifically. With this tool they look very professional without having to use a programming. That's why I think it's easy to use and very practical. The works that I have done look very good. Adobe Muse offers several free widgets that I can find inside the library. They look like very simple widgets, but I can modify them and get much more beautiful and attractive results. From a simple contact form to a full page slideshow.

"Web Design Tool Made With Web Designers in Mind"

What do you like best?

It just fits like a glove when it comes to designing web pages. They provide widgets that are fully customizable so as to get it to look and function the exact way your project needs it to. It interacts seamlessly with all the other Adobe products that you might be using to create assets.

What do you dislike?

It really puts a wrench in my process to not have the capability to create a blog right within Muse. The work arounds are messy and confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those that are used to the work flow of other Adobe products as well as those used to the interface and how tools work there is a lot of over lap so it will be very easy for them to pick up and start producing quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a great way to plan out the flow and usage of new products. Wireframe, prototype and interact with it as if its fully functional site or app.

"Muse Review"

What do you like best?

I like that you are able to build completely custom websites without having to know how to code. You are able to do more things on your website that you wouldn't have been able to otherwise.

What do you dislike?

There is quite the learning curve with adobe muse. It is so cumbersome to learn that a lot of people don't even bother. Once you learn the dynamics of the program though you are able to use it just fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are easier systems available online that do the same thing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's common for businesses to hire two people in order to build a website: a designer and a coder. If a person can do both things that don't really ever seem to do both things as well as two separate people you specialize in each. With muse you are able to hire just the designer and muse does the coding so businesses are able to save time and money.

"The middle-man between graphic and web page design"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is a niche software that fits almost perfectly in with graphic designers who need to design a web page with limited or no coding knowledge. What Adobe Muse does, it does fairly well. You can design a web page using a graphic-oriented approach, piece by piece. Then, Muse will take your design, and allow you to export to HTML. Adobe Muse is great for those acquainted with other Adobe design software as it utilizes a similar user interface layout compared to Photoshop and Illustrator, with familiar tools and functions migrating over to this newer software.

What do you dislike?

Muse is best suited for minimalist designs, sometimes struggling to convert more intricate layouts correctly into HTML. This can sometimes cause problems when viewing in browser, sometimes producing a variety of issues depending on the device or browser the page is viewed on. The software can also add clunky, unnecessary code when converting into a functional design.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would only recommend Adobe Muse to those considering creating a personal web site or a site for a small organization or business. Muse does it's best work with simple designs without too many bells and whistles. Also, Adobe Muse has limited functionality compared to creating a website traditionally with code. Time permitting, it's arguably better to learn and make the jump over to Adobe Dreamweaver which also has design-oriented functionality, but will also allow you to view and edit code as you construct the layout.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a digital media manager for a small, non-profit organization, I am responsible for overseeing all things media related (video production, graphic design, web site design, etc). Adobe Muse has been beneficial because I have been able to develop and maintain a simple, but efficient website with limited knowledge of coding. Also, with Adobe Muse being included with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, our organization can utilize the software we already have available, without needing to purchase another software or web-service subscription.

What do you like best?

El programa Adobe Muse es muy intuitivo y es fácil y rápido el familiarizarse con su interfaz. Es completamente compatible con otros programas de Adobe por lo que lo podemos usar conjuntamente con herramientas como Photoshop en el ámbito de la publicidad y el diseño de webs. Es sencillo adaptarse a él al principio y salvo herramientas puntuales que necesites buscar información acerca de como utilizarla, se aprende de forma amena.

What do you dislike?

En ocasiones cuando necesita acercar objetos, se ralentiza bastante. Además genera mucho código que en ocasiones hace que la web cargue mas lentamente.

Lo mejor es la facilidad de crear páginas web sin tener que saber programar. Adobe Muse posee una interfaz bastante intuitiva y totalmente gráfica. Es una buena aplicación para realizar trabajos esporádicos y poco profesionales

Realmente el mayor problema a día de hoy es que se termina la asistencia técnica el 26 de Marzo de 2020.

Pero si va a ser un trabajo profesional hay aplicaciones mejores y que no tienen el problema de la finalización de la asistencia técnica

"Diseño de páginas web sin necesidad de programar"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse es un buen software que se adapta casi perfectamente a los diseñadores gráficos que necesitan diseñar una página web con conocimiento de codificación limitado o nulo. Lo que Adobe Muse hace, lo hace muy bien. Puedes diseñar una página web utilizando un enfoque orientado a gráficos, pieza por pieza. Muse puede tomar tu diseño y te permite exportarlo a HTML fácilmente. Adobe Muse es ideal para aquellos familiarizados con otro software de diseño de Adobe, ya que utiliza un diseño de interfaz de usuario similar a otros programas de Adobe, con herramientas y funciones familiares que migran a este software más nuevo.

What do you dislike?

Algunas de las características de diseño en Adobe Muse son un poco difíciles de manejar, sobre todo algunas herramientas de diseño, además, Muse no ofrece tantas herramientas de diseño como podría ofrecernos Illustrator o InDesign, por lo que en algunos casos habrá que crear gráficos dentro de uno de estos otros programas e importarlos a Muse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si sólo quieres crear sitios web sin tener de codificar, entonces Adobe Muse es lo que estás buscando. Es muy conveniente para los sitios simples más que para los complejos, pero si esto es todo lo que necesitas entonces es un programa adecuado para ti..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Adobe Muse Review"

What do you like best?

I like that the interface is similar to other Adobe programs, so it makes it simple to use the tools and transition assets between the CC libraries, etc. I am also a novice at coding, so I like that there is no coding required to use Muse for web design and front end development. There are many good resources for learning tricks for Muse, so it has been very easy for me to use thus far. I would recommend Adobe Muse to anyone looking for a comprehensive web design program.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that I dislike about Adobe Muse, I find switching back and forth between Muse, XD, and other Adobe programs works well. My only complaint is that the sites aren't strictly responsive, and although I do not write much code myself, I have heard complaints that the coding is poor on the back end. Despite these few issues, overall I think the product is very comprehensive and useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Adobe Muse

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work with someone who does all their wireframing in InDesign, so helping them transition into Muse has been fairly simple. I also find it beneficial to use Muse, as it is so easy to pull mockups, images, graphics, etc from other Adobe programs into Muse, rather than using a web based program.

"Adobe Muse una aplicación con la muerte anunciada"

What do you like best?

La facilidad de poder diseñar una web sin apenas conocimientos de programación. La interfaz es muy visual y amigable. Trabajar con Muse es muy intuitivo y los resultados no son del todo malos.

What do you dislike?

En primer lugar el problema más grave que le encuentro es que la asistencia técnica a los clientes de Adobe Muse termina el 26 de Marzo con lo que con el paso del tiempo dejará de ser funcional. Otro punto que no me gustó es que insertando determinado contenido multimedia añade código "basura" que para web sencillas no debería de ser muy problemático, pero dentro de una página Web dinámica y con mucho contenido multimedia podría ser muy perjudicial.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No, por la sencilla razón que ya comenté que van a dejar de tener soporte técnico a partir del 26 de Marzo de 2020. Para trabajos sencillos y que tengan una predicción de fin de proyecto antes de la fecha antes citada es una opción pero considero que hay otras más recomendables para el diseño Web como Dreamweaver por ejemplo.

"You can make your dream website!"

What do you like best?

I like the interface of Muse because the keys are very apparent and it is user friendly. Once you get the hang of the basic keys, you can easily start playing around with the program to get what you want for your website. I also love the easy features it has when toggling back and forth from the home page to sister pages, as well as being able to view in the browser!

What do you dislike?

I definitely wish it had a blog attached to the program because I would rather make my own blog through Muse and be able to create a page for it on Muse instead of having to use another blogging website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to create my portfolio as well as my personal website with Muse and I was able to create those two things with Muse. Thanks to the easiness of the program and being able to use widgets really helped!

"Adobe has the lead in the design of web pages without the need to create codes."

What do you like best?

Thanks to this tool, modern web pages can be designed without the need to write or create web design codes. The only thing you need is inspiration and content creation, since this tool is responsible for adapting your needs to the required codes to be properly a web page. It's simple to use, especially if you've used a design tool from the Adobe package before. Ideally, this tool integrates your other tools in the Adobe suite and you can interact by inserting other extensions that are useful for your web portal.

What do you dislike?

Curious but true, this tool does not allow you to edit or work on design projects from the other Adobe tool called Dreamweaver. I think the focus is not to structure the website with the Java extensions of the other tool, but to carry out a clean and impeccable design that suits any PC or smartphone. Likewise, we have the same problem with Adobe products, they are a bit high in price, however the free trial version of this tool allows you to have a unique experience and in the end you will end up buying the subscription.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If I believe that they are going in a good way, however, they should make the experience of using the tool be shared, that is, allowing the use of their tools in a collaborative way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool allowed us in the Design Department to erect a draft of the web portal with a clean design adapted to the views from the smart phones.

"A great option for simple solutions"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse, is a fairly simple solution to use. It is specially made for designers, its drag-and-drop system, makes assembling a website very simple and under the same principles as with traditional design software. Another point in favor is the pre-defined templates that come with the software, as well as programmable PHP functionalities already pre-manufactured, such as shipping and contact forms. Another tool that interests me is the PLAN which allows to organize the structure and hierarchy that the web will have.

What do you dislike?

Being a very simple solution, it does not allow expansion beyond the options that it offers. An example of this is being able to extend the content with programming (PHP), with personalized code. It could also have more flexibility in the inclusion of CSS styles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Muse will allow you to make great visual impact developments quickly. It is the perfect solution if you are a designer without knowledge in software development. Do not expect Adobe Muse to develop complex dynamic applications (PHP, Asp, Java, etc.), since that is not your purpose; What you can expect is a product of great final quality in a very short time and with little effort.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Muse has allowed me to make developments very quickly, this for simple solutions, such as static websites, with a contact form. This allows me to gain time in professional solutions and rapid development. Another aspect in which Muse has been of great help in the realization of sketches and site maps.

"Un programa muy bueno para hacer sitios web responsives"

What do you like best?

Le permite crear páginas web sin necesidad de conocer y escribir códigos como html y css, tan perfecto para un diseñador que no está familiarizado con la programación. Obviamente tiene diferentes límites, pero es ideal para aquellos que también utilizan Illustrator o Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

Algunas de las funciones de diseño de Adobe Muse son un poco difíciles de utilizar. A menos que utilice capas perfectamente ordenadas y etiquetadas, las cosas pueden resultar complicadas al intentar seleccionar un objeto sobre otro dentro de las herramientas de diseño.

Adobe Muse no ofrece tantas herramientas de diseño como, por ejemplo, Illustrator o InDesign.

La falta de compatibilidad entre varios programas de Adobe puede resultar un poco frustrante

"Adobe Muse Review"

What do you like best?

Great WYSIWYG web site software! Being a designer, I'm not up to speed on the programming side of websites, nor do I want to be. If you're familiar with Adobe products, the learning curve is very slight, so you be up and running very quickly. Lots of 3rd party templates and features to choose from as well. Really changes designing websites from a chore, to something you can really "design". I highly recommend!

What do you dislike?

Haven't come across much I dislike. It's not as friendly with other Adobe programs as I'd like it to be, but I think moving forward that will be worked out. Would be nice if the login FTP info was linked to the actual design file, so that it would access when moved to a different computer.

"Adobe Muse - Great for those who regularly use Adobe products"

What do you like best?

I love that the dashboard resembles other adobe products like Photoshop, this extremely helpful if you are familiar with Photoshop. It makes using it feel more comfortable when you are just starting out.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if Muse and Dreamweaver worked together. Muse is great on the design aspect, but not so much for the ease of coding side like Dreamweaver.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before using Muse I was told that it was really for professional designers, not intermediate uses, like myself. I found that assessment to be partly true since I am familiar with design, having used PS, Illustrator, and In-Design. If you are great at design and familiar with Adobe CC, but not so good at coding, I would suggest it because the design elements are basically the same as other design suite products. If you are not so good with design, but good at coding I would stick with Dreamweaver. There is a 30-day free trial period, so if you're not sure, I would take advantage of that offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was working on a site from the bottom up and Muse's website builder options were easier for me to visually see how my site connected then if I used Dreamweaver. I could also edit pictures as I would in PS directly in Muse, which was really nice.

"Why Adobe Muse is a great web design tool"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is extraordinarily easy to use and more than enough for most basic or low budget web development projects.

What do you dislike?

Adobe has announced plans to discontinue the software in a few years, leaving designer having to figure out how to update the website when they stop supporting the application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to produce fast small sized website with limited functionality, Adobe Muse is perfect. There are even ready-to-use templates available online for free or low prices. When it comes to basic informational site, Muse is perfect for basic informational sites. There is some concern as to whether Adobe will release another product of a similar nature when they stop supporting Muse. Hopefully, we will be able to update Muse based sites with Dreamweaver in the future. I doubt that will abandon the fans of Adobe Muse altogether with some kind of replacement in mind.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My webdesign fees are based on time spent per project. Adobe Muse offered an easy solution to produce visually stunning sites for clients with a smaller project in a short amount of time.

"Very Easy Web Design"

What do you like best?

If you're someone who has minimal web design skills or little knowledge of html or other codes, Muse makes building a website extremely easy. As simple as it is it still offers plenty of capability versus other programs or online websites that allow you to build a site. Rather than just a simple layout wizard you still have full control of what you're making without having to know what you're actually doing. Even as someone who is experienced in web design with some source code background, Muse makes the process so much faster if I'm just building a simple website.

What do you dislike?

I really can't think of any complaints regarding Muse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're new to web design or need a website and don't know what you're doing, check out Muse its extremely easy to use for beginners.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Muse has allowed me to save a lot of time on web design if what I'm creating isn't too complicated to begin with.

"Alternative web creation software"

What do you like best?

As someone who learned web design from Adobe GoLive (a million years ago!), Muse seems like a more logical stepping stone than Dreamweaver was. Muse has a nice WYSIWYG setup and easy solutions for form processing.

What do you dislike?

Muse is not as robust as Dreamweaver, so knowing Dreamweaver, I don't really have a use for Muse. If I want an easy, drag and drop editor, there are others out there that are free and have a sleeker look and feel (like Mobirise, for example).

Recommendations to others considering the product

An ok stepping stone web creation program, but I would put my time into learning more coding or use a free WYSIWYG web creation program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our employees with no coding background are able to create websites and web contact forms. We've been able to create more websites because our graphic designers with Adobe familiarity can be up and running on Muse rather easily.

"My favorite web designing tool!!!"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that Adobe Muse was created for designers who aren't big into coding. I am self taught in all areas of design so when I started using Muse, I was able to get through the short learning curve pretty quickly.

What do you dislike?

I build our company website in Muse and it is quite large. Unfortunately, because of the size of the sight and the assets, Muse can sometimes lag. I use several other Adobe products and I never experience the lagging.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are not a coder, you should use Adobe Muse. It is very powerful, easy to use, and if you are already using other Adobe software, this fits right in and works really well. There are a lot of ways to build a site now a days, but Muse has so much power behind it with great features, that it's hard to want to use another program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Muse to build our company website. It is 242 pages and using Muse has probably cut half of the time out of building it. The templates in Muse are super easy to use and building a responsive sight was pretty simple.

"Muse: Efficient web design capabilities without the hassle of learning how to code. "

What do you like best?

I love the ability to quickly and efficiently build a site or microsite and have it live within minutes with Muse's easy export and upload functionality. Muse does a great job of organizing your files upon export, separating your assets into HTML, CSS, image, and font folders, like a real developer would do. I also love the ability to have a master slide for designs, so things like navigation bar, menu, header, footer, etc can stay consistent across all pages of your project.

What do you dislike?

Some of the design features in Adobe Muse are a little difficult to manage. Unless you are using perfectly ordered and labeled layers, things can get tricky when trying to select one object over another within the design tools. If you are organized with your layers, you won't have as much of a problem. Also, Muse does not offer as many design tools as lets say Illustrator or InDesign, so in some cases one will have to create graphics within one of these other programs and import into Muse. The lack of compatibility across multiple Adobe programs can get frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering Adobe Muse for personal use, make use of online tutorials, as it's not as intuitive of a program as say Adobe Illustrator. If you are considering Adobe Muse for business purposes, make sure to organize files according to create ease of use across multiple users, platforms, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Muse is a great resource for creating apps and micro sites without having to have extensive knowledge of HTML and CSS. The ability to be able to design and create a mobile responsive website without being a developer is huge benefit to companies big and small. This gives businesses the option to allow their graphic designers to create websites!

"Adobe Muse review"

What do you like best?

The interface is pretty intuitive - and familiar to users of Adobe products. So having it being a part of the Adobe ecosystem is a big plus in terms of onboarding and getting familiar. It also is updated frequently enough with new bells and whistles.

What do you dislike?

Adobe announced that they will stop developing Muse, so it’s become a dinosaur program, soon to be extinct - sad :(

Recommendations to others considering the product

With news that Adobe is no longer going to add anymore improvements in the future, the future of Muse seems to be a bit uncertain. It's good for what it is - wondering if it'll soon go the way of Flash and other discontinued Adobe products. Sad, but I guess this is progress?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Set up one-off microsites here and there. Gives you more flexibility and allows for more creativity than an out of the box solution (i.e. Weebly or Squarespace) - though even there, the competition keeps improving and making it easier. It's definitely more complicated - which is both a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the user.

"Muse may seem fairly complicated for non-designers"

What do you like best?

All in all, Muse looks, performs and feels just like any other Adobe product. So, if you happened to work in InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop, the interface won’t scare you away. Adobe Muse employs the drag-and-drop editing principle which also simplifies the creation process.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Muse has no ready-to-use templates – Muse gives you a blank canvas, which means you’ll have to design headers, navigation, buttons, footers and more from scratch. While that’s okay for designers, it can be a burden for other users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The good news is that there are many designers who create and sell templates tailored specially for Adobe Muse.

Adobe Muse features best templates providers on the Resources page. Some of the highly-trusted resources for Muse designers are Muse-Themes, MuseFree, Musegain, and museGrid among other approved providers, some bringing entirely free design resources including graphics, time saving starter templates, and other library files.

But you should always be aware from purchasing or downloading themes from unknown resources, as they may contain a specific code that may cause damage to your website in future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you use the same copy throughout your website, you no longer need to edit each place where it’s used. With this feature, all your edits will automatically synchronize across your site. Additionally, you can take advantage of the Find and replace feature to search for words and then replace them across all pages including the mobile version.

"It's not supported anymore :("

What do you like best?

I used Muse when it was first released to the public, and while it was an okay design tool, it wasn't really powerful. Since then, it grew into having a myriad of features, including responsive layouts, which was critical for mobile design. It is easy to pick up and learn, but unfortunately, that's about all I can say about it's positive features.

What do you dislike?

It's very focused around the concept of widgets, so you need to know how to develop those yourself or rely on other sources for these widgets. It's being discontinued by Adobe soon, so it's probably not the best idea to pick it up if you've never used it before.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd check out other comparable software first. WordPress is much more code oriented but has a much more expansive library of extensions and widgets. Adobe's Animate (formerly Flash) now exports to HTML and seems likely to replace Muse, but I cannot speak to it's ability to create responsive designs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We haven't used Muse much outside of mild prototyping and exploring the software.

"Good for quick websites that don't need loads of functionaility"

What do you like best?

• Like the way you can quickly build responsive pages that work across multiple devices

• prebuilt content blocks are pretty flexible and allow you to add modern website features such as accordions slideshows

• Easy to add some nice css3 animations and movement to the page

• Working with images is also a pleasant experience and there are great ways of adding scroll effects to add another layer of interest

• Great syncing between other adobe apps so moving content between photoshop etc is easy

making Page element responsive is easy

What do you dislike?

• Building buttons can be a bit clunky

• Working with content across breakpoint can be time consuming and sometimes elements overlap each other for no apparent reason but its quicker than building with dreamweaver etc

• Could do with more content blocks so you don't need to do any "hacking" to get them suitable for your use

• The files that are exported are not the cleanest in terms of scripting and code syntax but that is the same with all visual web builders that i have used.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make use of all the free templates and add ons that are available in the marketplace and muse could dwell become your goto product for a quick website build.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

• Im not a coder so building responsive website has always been a long and troublesome process for me. Muse allows me to do this easily without the need for code.

"Front End design for Back End Defense"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse offers a incredible flexibility for front end design of a professional website. Muse allows for quick and easy responsive design options, creating complete flexibility for how you present your website to your audience.

What do you dislike?

The biggest struggle with Adobe Muse is combining both the front end and back end design.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Muse provides a great start for those who are experienced in website design, or those who have no experience at all. It provided a valid foundation basis for websites front end design, as well as back end implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Producing responsive front end design for websites that need to reach a individual target audience, being able to do a complete design phase and begin the process of the implementing back end design.

"Immediate websites without writing code"

What do you like best?

Very simple to use, Adobe Muse allows you to create websites without writing a line of code. This is not an HTML editor, in fact there is no need to program anything because everything is done by inserting graphic elements as you do with Illustrator. Obviously inside it has widgets that allow you to realize different functions and allow interactivity with the user, such as slider, slideshows, contact forms, gallery, menubar, google maps. Not for complex websites, but very useful for non-programmers.

What do you dislike?

Obviously it has some shortcomings, but it is normal that this is so because it allows you to create complete web pages even if you can not intervene on the code. In some cases web pages appear slow, responsiveness sometimes gives problems but, above all, it seems that Adobe has interrupted software upgrades.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hoping that Adobe continues to produce this software, which for me remains unique, I can say that Muse is suitable for all designers who are not very practical in programming and who want to build websites or web pages thanks to the use of Photoshop and Illustrastrator, with satisfactory results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Adobe Muse to create landing pages that do not require great programming and that need a great visual impact, things that Muse does very well, especially when used in combination with Illustrator and Photoshop. In any case, I have included elements such as gallery or contact forms for the release of data by the user.

"Good way to start without writing code with already familiar Adobe UI"

What do you like best?

The best part is the design flexibility without code, and recently the responsive fluid layout feature to design for responsive experience.

Recently have started experimenting creating animated infographics with the scroll effects, and it gives some pretty awesome results. Love it as it allows to create single page infographic site for my corporate clients. The animated button rollover also comes in very handy for this.

What do you dislike?

Gets slow when building large sites, especially with more pages and images. I am not a programmer, so it seems the code it generates, needs to addressed by Adobe Muse team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a good to start with if you are building small sites, visually rich with great typography controls. But for large and multi page sites, its slow to load.

Give it a try creating interactive infographics, its an awesome tool to do it. Just think outside the box when using this software, away form creating the traditional websites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any design problem for my clients, from retail to hospitality to corporate, from concept to execution in creating total brand experience across various touch points.

"Unfortunate Loss"

What do you like best?

Muse is one of the best WYSIWYG editors there has ever been. but hopefully, not the best there will ever be. Being able to design a website like you'd design a printed page is my favorite aspect of Muse. It has similar characteristics to Indesign, making it extremely designer-friendly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that they're ending it! It is such a loss for numerous designers who have invested a lot of time to learn the program and also even designers who have made clients websites. Those designers may not know how to code, so when you tell them they're website will stop being useful to them in a few years - it's extremely disheartening.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't waste your time now. As beautiful as this program is, it was discontinued and will ultimately lead to you having huge website problems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were recreating our website in Muse but have stopped since the news of Adobe discontinuing Muse.

"Suitable for those who don't know web codes"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is a good software to create web pages only on the design side, not even writing a line of html or css code, as it provides him to translate in code what is done in the planning and designing boards. Obviously it is a bit 'limited in the functions because it is neither Dreamweaver nor Wordpress, but thanks to the widgets it is possible to create websites that are still excellent from the visual point of view.

What do you dislike?

Not being a CMS, the pages created can not be changed by customers, even if you have entered the In-browser editing function, which is very limited, and also does not allow you to rename the DIVs and then find them easily if you want to change further the web pages with Dreamweaver.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Suitable and recommended especially for those who do not create web pages using codes like html, css, javascript or php, it is excellent functionality that allows responsive design, even if not very simple in use. A software that allows you to create beautiful showcase sites or attractive landing pages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When you need to create web pages or showcase sites as showcases, without needing to constantly change the pages, Muse can be the right choice, and I have used it just to make this happen. Also great for creating storytelling pages or landing pages with call to action, thanks also to responsive.

"Improving constantly"

What do you like best?

You can begin a plan from a Photoshop layout and create it in the two devices. I like the plan format and layouts you can make and apply on each progression of outline. Programmed instrument bars with hyperlinks is next incredible thing I adore about Muse.

What do you dislike?

There are still loads of thing that staff at Adobe should search for in the following updates of Muse. I for one imagine that one of the thing they should endeavor to make genuine is the capacity of thoroughly coordinate a kind of CMS, something that enables individuals to configuration full websites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best tool in the market right now to make straightforward sites and smaller scale destinations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product makes it substantially less demanding to make straightforward sites for private companies. By making the site simpler and quicker, it enables a website specialist to have the capacity to charge the independent venture less. One of the greatest advantages isn't dealing with coding to credit site.

"Muse takes the headache out of web design."

What do you like best?

If you're looking for a simple web design solution then Adobe Muse is definitely an option. The drag and drop editor, built in plugins and simple connectivity makes creating website fun. You can get a website up and running in no time and it actually will look good. There are already a number of Muse templates out there, which all show off the potential of this program. If you want to get creating again, instead of get headaches as to why something has moved, then Muse is a great application.

What do you dislike?

If I had to mention anything negative about Adobe Muse it would have to be that sometimes it is 'too' simple. It becomes a lot more work if you want to stray away from the templates and built in plug ins. Though it can achieve complex wesbites with some work, I don't think this is it's primary strength and would stick to simple web design.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Muse for designers looking create good looking sites without the headache of coding. It's not really designed for the deeper level stuff, but it can be achieved and could ultimately bring the best of both if you're willing to persevere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps us create fast, good looking websites with a lot more ease than normal methods. It helps you visually design the site, without having to work the coding side. Out sites have worked well with mobile devices also.

"Muse makes the complicated tasks simple."

What do you like best?

Though at first I was apprehensive about Adobe Muse's claim to make web design more simpler, I was pleasantly surprised. With all the built in plugins, drag and drop functionality and other features Muse helps you create great looking sites relatively simply.

What do you dislike?

You do have to tie yourself into Adobe's infrastructure somewhat and sometimes it's not always easy to step out of it. Though it's easy to use, you will find it limited if you are looking to do that 'extra' thing if it isn't available to you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would love to see more coming to Adobe Muse, but it is still a great program and has a lot of potential. If you're looking for something that will help you create great looking websites, without the coding and extensive testing then this will help you out so much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps create quick websites that still look good and have all the functionality you need for a normal site. It speeds up the whole process and removes the complication that web design always brings.

"Web design made simpler"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse gets you straight into visual design without the need for coding or other complicated tasks. If you're primarily a designer then Adobe Muse makes life so much easier. With templates, plugins and other resources readily available to you on launch, you can get a good looking website running in no time.

What do you dislike?

Muse can be limited if you want more than a static page. It is possible to work with a website that's a bit more complicated but it starts making things complicated and it doesn't always do what you want. Some of the material is limited and more options would be good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to just create websites without the hassle of coding then Adobe Muse is where you need to be looking. It is highly desirable for simple sites more than complex ones, but if this is all you need then it's a fantastic application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Web design made simple. It helps us create great looking sites fast and without the headache of coding and other technical distractions.

"Building Sites in Adobe Muse Review"

What do you like best?

I like the easy integration between the various Adobe Creative Cloud products; Photoshop, Stock, etc. I really enjoy the user controls and interface; I design a lot in Adobe InDesign and Muse's interface closely follows InDesign. I also like all of the various vendors out there that have many different (and awesome) templates/widgets already created that make it simple to build very professional sites; without CODING. The software excels in ease of use; allowing us to easily, and quickly, pull resources from many different sources right within Muse.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the way it interfaces with Adobe Business Catalyst (BC). There is some coding that has to be done to "round-trip" forms and e-commerce functionality. The interface continues to improve with Business Catalyst. Due to proprietary code associated with Muse, it is also difficult to round-trip it to Adobe Dreamweaver. When building very large sites, Muse loads very slowly, so, there can be quite a delay in getting started. Also, when the changed Muse file is saved back out to the Adobe Business Catalyst servers, it wants to re-export ALL pages, instead of just pages that have changed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Buy it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have solved several work-flow challenges through MUSE/Adobe BC. Even though BC is a "marketing/CRM" platform, it's functionality can be applied across many different scenarios/working environments...workflow, CRM, business imaging, etc.

"Web design for beginners"

What do you like best?

It is very simple to use because it has an intuitive interface and a system of "tutorials" so to speak, which helps new users to become familiar with the program. As an interface, it is quite similar to several Adobe programs, which facilitates even more familiarization. The mechanism to build websites is based on dragging add-ons from the interface, which makes it an ideal program for those who do not have knowledge in programming languages.

What do you dislike?

To work at a professional or advanced level, it is quite obsolete, since not having a design mechanism based on web design languages, it is almost impossible to create a website with optimal features, since correcting errors in it would become quite annoying because you should look for the error without the possibility of entering some code. Its price is quite high for what the program really is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very simple application to use and is very good for those who are just beginning in the world of web design. Although Adobe provides a considerable testing period, there are other programs such as Google Web Designer that fulfill the same functions as Muse and can be obtained for free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In itself, Muse has not helped me at all, since the application serves in my work, so I do not include it as one of my work tools, besides I have only used it a few times to test it and know how works.

"Photoshop for Webdesign"

What do you like best?

I've never known how to code and never had the time to learn, but Muse gives me the ability to design stunning websites without having to learn all the code. I can drag and drop and make things beautiful, just as I would in InDesign or Photoshop, and it easily does all the hard coding work of making it interactive for you. No heavy lifting!

What do you dislike?

Adobe has stopped supporting and improving Muse in favor of focusing on Dreamweaver and other products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't know how to code, this is a good way to get professional design without messing with premade templates on Wix and other similar sites.

"Easy to Use for Designers"

What do you like best?

The best part about Adobe Muse is a designer with very little coding knowledge can create and launch a fully functional responsive website without a developer. You can add all the bells and whistles of a modern website with just your knowledge of design. The responsive site has much fewer issues than most coded WordPress sites that I have worked with.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Catalyst can be very cumbersome when launching your site. There is a pretty high learning curve when getting to know Muse and while it has many great features I feel like some are more difficult to use than those within other builders such as WordPress.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While there are many built in features there is still a pretty good learning curve, I would take some Lynda courses to really get to know and understand what Muse has to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I need to design a site on a budget that doesn't allow for hiring a developer it is the perfect tool. The main benefit is the extent of creativity allowed and the functionality Muse has embedded in it's platform.

What do you like best?

Entirely visual method of creating websites, ideal for a designer as opposed to a programmer.

What do you dislike?

Even though a more visual platform allows me to be more productive, I still sometimes miss being able to manipulate a few things like I would in Dreamweaver.

Easiest professional website creation that I have used. If you use InDesign or Photoshop, this will feel very familiar to you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Much faster and friendlier website creation versus using Dreamweaver. I am able to create a page or entire website very quickly to get feedback from the client, whereas in Dreamweaver it took me significantly longer to produce something to show because it was a significantly less friendly program.

Creating websites seem so easy with Muse. To layout how you want it and to create different styles on each page. Creating steps to get to different pages from one page makes it simple than trying to create code for it.

The only issue is the learning process in the beginning. It will take a little time to get to understand how to work on what you want the process to do.

"A very good program to make responsive websites!"

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is a very good software to make websites in an easy way. The program is very simple to use and helps a lot because it's the only program that allows you to make websites without knowing the html code. I use it each time a client ask me to make a website, and I prefer it instead of using Dreamweaver.

What do you dislike?

I think this program needs a lot of work to become more stable, because it crushes too often, and it's no good to restart the software each time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think Adobe Muse needs a lot of work, so, right now, I'm not sure I will recommend this program to someone.

With this program I usually make websites in a very short ammount of time. I have made some websites for some clients of mine, and they were very happy for the final result.

I like being able to use the Type Kit web fonts with my Creative Cloud subscription so that I have more choices without having to purchase additional webfonts. I really like the ability to add in embedded HTML. There additionally are sites that you can download widgets to use within your muse file.

"When you don't feel like using dreamweaver..."

What do you like best?

Muse is great for folks that come from Photoshop or InDesign. If you can think it, you can build it out. Easy transition between the other Adobe products as well. They've made some big improvements in responsiveness too.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, I wish I could just dig into the code. I'll fall back on Dreamweaver much more often, partially because I'm building sites with various languages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Muse isn't just for people who don't know HTML/CSS (though it is definitely nice to not have to code anything). Sometimes, I'll have any idea in my head and just can't quite figure out how to lay it out. We get it as part of a bundle, not sure if I would spend the money on it individually, but it's pretty useful sometimes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Brochure creation has been much easier, and it also has allowed our graphic designer to do a lot more work (which maybe he's not too pleased with). This has helped up review our templates as well. When you work with folks who might not be as astute with coding, it's good to have the on the fly ability to change things without needing to build wireframes.

"Web design for beginners"

What do you like best?

It is a web design tool used basically by users without knowledge of programming languages, since the program does not work with them, therefore, with it you can build the web pages by dragging complements from the interface, which makes it very useful to build websites in very short times.

What do you dislike?

It is an excellent tool for newbies, but for a professional user it can be VERY obsolete, since to create pages and take care of all the details you need to use some programming language, languages that Muse does not manage, so to work in an area Professional does not serve much.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although muse is quite simple to use, I do not recommend spending money on this tool at all, I recommend using Google Web Designer that has almost the same characteristics as well as being free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do not use Muse to do my work, so it does not really benefit me. I have only used it to know how it works and to have a comparative idea with other products in the market.

"Adobe Muse"

What do you like best?

If you are a visual person, and just want to design without having to worry about a lot of coding and behind the scenes details, then you should try Muse. It has tons of available widgets to make the content do the things you want without code. You can drop in assets straight from Photoshop and illustrator, and it supports a lot of different file types.

What do you dislike?

I know this is a program for non-coders, but that being said it should still add a little more robust way off adding to or editing the code. The methods currently available aren't very obvious and are restrictive and limiting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To get the most use out of muse I would reccommend either planning on purchasing many of the available widgets, or having a developer handy to develop the widgets you might need. Once you have the widgets you need content creation is very easy and intuitive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it to develope content for game day productions. We have been using it to develope content to enhance the game day experiance. We've developed several proprietary widgets for muse to make it work the way we need it to. That's what's so nice about the widget workflow. Developers can create tools for artists to use so they don't need to code just focus on design.

"Programa simple y sencillo de diseño"

What do you like best?

Es un programa de edición de HTML muy fácil de usar. Con arrastrar y soltar tienes gran parte hecha, parecido a un ilustrador común, pero con funcionalidades algo más avanzadas. Te permite editar en el navegador, crear efectos de desplazamiento y cuenta con muchos widgets, ejemplos de código y tutoriales online.

What do you dislike?

Muse es bueno, pero llega algo tarde a un mercado dominado por los gestores de contenido (CMS). Por otro lado, la mayoría de los servidores ya ofrecen software de construcción de páginas web sencillos para los usuarios menos técnicos. Además, carece de un buen soporte para páginas web multilenguaje y la edición en el navegador podría mejorar.

"Quick, Fast, Profitable."

What do you like best?

Adobe created a web design powerhouse program with Muse. It allows people with no to little web design knowledge the ability to build a website for themselves quickly. It also allows people like myself create mockups on the fly and test different layouts without going deep into normal development channels.

What do you dislike?

As a web designer/development company, I don't really like the fact that anyone can use this program to build a somewhat passable website for their business. However, those people aren't my ideal clients in the first place, so...

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Muse to anyone who wants to prototype web layouts or if you are a small or home business with no money to hire a developer to build your companies website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I use Muse, I primarily use it to create layout mockups. The WYSIWYG interface and lack of coding make it easy for me to test different ideas without involving developers. It also allows me to show our developers a visual interactive layout instead of just one wireframed or drawn.

"ADOBE MUSE THE BEST EVER!!!!! Perfect for non-web designers who need a website. "

What do you like best?

I LOVE that is program is completely intuitive to users of other Adobe Creative programs. I have had to throw together other web pages but none have come together as quickly and effortlessly as Muse. Even uploading it to my host was a breeze and that's the part where I always make a mistake.

What do you dislike?

There were a few things I wanted it do from Photoshop and inDesign that aren't features yet - but it's just as easy to make a quick edit and pull an item back in.

Also, I really wish there was a better portfolio viewer / publisher plug in. I had to use another host for that portion. I'd like to do it all within Muse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you already use inDesign, Illustrator and maybe Photoshop - this will be completely intuitive to you!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I made my web page and work portfolio using Muse! I put everything together in less than an hour.

"Easy work with Adobe Muse"

What do you like best?

I like that Adobe Muse has replaced Dreamweaver in my daily usage. It is much easier for me, as a designer with little development knowledge, to use Muse as opposed to Dreamweaver or trying to prototype my own work just to show small bits of functionality.

What do you dislike?

I dislike some aspects of muse like the inability (for myself) to find similar tools that i would use in illustrator/photoshop. I do like the integration with illustrator. It is easy for me to copy and past or place content from illustrator into Muse with little friction.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is a slight learning curve as with every adode product. it is different and could benefit from better onboarding techniques.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using it to mock up web pages and applications when I need to show a little bit of functionality. It is helpful for non-designers to understand what I mean when I say "when you click here xyz will happen"

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of the program. For someone who thinks very visually and isn't a proficient coder, Muse was a great tool for me to build out websites either for prototyping or for actual use.

What do you dislike?

I do wish there was more responsiveness, but I know they've been working on adding new features which is great. Some of the code can get a little funky as well, and if there was a blogging feature then this program would be damn near perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you get onto some support boards if you're having any trouble. So many people have worked out some amazing things you can do in Muse. They're also great to have around if anything breaks or you hit a problem spot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a quick way to get a design up and running for testing for clients, it's also really easy to adjust the design once it's up there.

"Adobe Muse"

What do you like best?

Basically the wysiwyg capabilities are the benefit to this program in addition to it being part of the CC suite so it "plays nice" and in comparison to some online web builders, the flexibility is limited, or the html editors are more difficult to understand.

What do you dislike?

I'm still learning the program so there's no "dislikes" at the moment, its more just dealing with the learning curve and figuring out the details of the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

So far I'm finding this product to be good for personal use and is easily comparable to create websites much like that available on Square Space, Wix or Concrete5- minus the same ease you would have with a CMS provided by those products/services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nothing work related, this is simply for personal and side projects.

"Excellent Platform for Non-coding Designers"

What do you like best?

I love the interface. If you are familiar with other Adobe platforms then it will be intuitive and easy to digest without having to invest a lot of time in tutorials and research. The learning curve for Muse is very simple and a new user can start creating stunning sites in very little time. It is great for non-complex websites and the perfect tool for DIYers and hobbyists.

What do you dislike?

Being a UI/UX designer, responsive capabilities are very important to me and it can be quite difficult controlling the responsiveness of sites created.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're are already using Adobe CC then this is a no-brainer for designers to use for creating awesome simple sites instead of spending money on other website-building platforms.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Muse has made creating interactive product style guides a breeze and I have created several portfolio sites with it without having to take a lot of valuable time out of my work.

"Adobe Muse helps you create websites without the hassle of coding!"

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Muse is how simply you can make responsive web pages and look at a plan of what your website looks like laid out like a blueprint. This is something you can't do with programs like DreamWeaver, so I think this is more user-friendly if you don't already have a background in web design. The interface can be confusing at first, but it becomes easy to use with a little practice and exploration.

What do you dislike?

The monthly/yearly subscription plan that comes with all Adobe Products now. However, it is more affordable if you are a student as they offer a discount.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go with Adobe Muse if you found DreamWeaver too confusing to work with. Sites like Squarespace allow you to plan out your webpages in a similar way that Adobe Muse does, but I think Muse allows you to customize your website more. The detailed options for everything you do in Muse make the website completely yours and unique!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have worked in a few different job positions that required web design skills, and ran into various issues that would take up a lot of time trying to solve coding errors. Adobe Muse allows you to skip those issues altogether!

"Not Amused"

What do you like best?

I was initially sold on the idea of a real drag and drop web design tool... I was thinking Wix without all the pay per feature nonsense. If you are looking to make quick and easy website using smart object from photoshop then this is the software for you. It definitely lives up to it's moniker as an app for people who seek artistic inspiration.

What do you dislike?

I disliked the limited options for redesigning and editing built-in features. I had an notion that Muse was meant for the novice web designer who doesn't really know how to code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well I would definitely focus on speaking to the more creatively inclined of the Adobe community. this is not one for the geeks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None at the moment, we have gone back to using Dreamweaver. If anything this software is more for the designer who wants to design websites and not for the coder who wants to design websites. I guess an unintended benefit from the use of the software has been the the companies re-focus on coding and html and javascript web apps.

"A very good program for making responsive websites. "

What do you like best?

Adobe Muse is one of the best software for make responsive websites. Using this program you can make websites without knowing html code. The program makes all the code when we create the website graphics. The interface is very smart and intuitive, and helps you during your work.

What do you dislike?

The program too often crashes when you're working with it. Also, Adobe Muse need an implementation into the interface, because the websites preview is always wrong.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Adobe Muse I made my personal website, and I used it also for making some school project but also some website for some of my clients.

"Fantástica herramienta para los diseñadores web"

What do you like best?

El programa es muy intuitivo si está familiarizado con las interfaces de otros programas. Sólo tuve que usar tutoriales para algunas cosas específicas, y fui capaz de entender el resto con sólo echar un vistazo.

What do you dislike?

Creo que Adobe Muse depende demasiado de "widgets" de terceros, ya que tiene muy pocos valores predeterminados, y las funciones de respuesta son a veces demasiado engorrosas, aunque me parece muy útil cuando se necesita crear páginas web con contenido atractivo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Puede hacer una prueba de 30 días y probarla gratuitamente para comprobar si satisface sus necesidades.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilicé Adobe Muse principalmente para crear sitios web de "escaparates" donde el diseño era muy importante, utilizando widgets como galerías, botones, acordeones y presentaciones de diapositivas de terceros. Alternativamente puede ser utilizado para la creación de prototipos.

"Adobe Muse"

What do you like best?

Dreamweaver was cool for what it is. If you're a hardcore want you hand in everything kind of designer than go for Dreamweaver. If you like being limited to what you can do from a creative perspective (or just be a master at coding) then go for Dreamweaver. I enjoy the very fact that I am not using any coding whatsoever and best of all, not limited to do anything like if I were to use an HTML builder or the one provided by my server provider Dreamhost.

What do you dislike?

There should be better support for creating blogs or e-commerce functionality. I really dislike when it crashes. One time I got so deep in a concept for a site that I forgot to save, and wouldn't you know, it crashed.

The compatibility issues. Unfortunately, Muse is not compatible with all platforms such as the older versions of Internet Explorer and Androids, which can be quite an issue if you're creating websites that would require those platforms. There is yet to be anything I dislike about Muse and any of its function and functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider your skill level and needs. I have found that using a template for Adobe Muse is helpful but I also work with other site builders based on clients needs and budget

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can get away from code and focus on the design. Being able to craft a mobile friendly site is huge and beneficial for us and it solved an issue from since smartphones and smartphone browsers became mainstream.
