Adobe Muse CC 2014 Editor's Review

There was a time when Dreamweaver used to be the most widely used web design app and competitors from Microsoft or other small players used to lag behind. While the powerhouse app still enjoys a humongous user base worldwide, emergence of new players have created ripples in the segment. One such contender is Muse coming from the stable of Adobe itself. Muse is feature rich web design software that is suited for a diverse user base. You can create professional looking websites with interactive elements using it even if you do not know HTML in depth.

Adobe Muse runs on PCs with Windows XP and later versions. It is a multilingual app. It does not support 32 bit systems and so you will need a CPU with 64 bit support to run it.  

Muse was developed with focus in aiding users to make compelling and attractive sites without coding. Hence, it is no wonder that the UI and workflow has similarities with popular Adobe products. On the contrary, users unfamiliar with Adobe apps can find the UI somewhat intimidating.

The UI has a section named Plan, where main website design activities take place. You can drag and drop several pages to structure a site. Each page then can be customized with elements like video content, images, buttons etc. Adobe Muse supports new web development technologies which ensures you can make cross-browser compatible websites that run seamlessly on PCs and other devices.

The Master page created in the app also contains elements like logos and footers that are deployed in sub pages. When you start the app, all you get is a blank canvas which means you have to build the site from scratch. Some apps offer preset templates. Designing a site can be both a boon and headache, based on background and expertise of the user. Graphic designers will sail through but amateur users may find it tough. This is because website design requires methodical approach apart from creativity. Designing elements and customizing them properly can get overwhelming at times.

Muse lets you drag and drop almost all elements in a webpage. You can use text, images, boxes and even slideshows. The bundled form builder also produces decent results. Keeping in mind the popularity of social networking services, Adobe has equipped Muse with predefined buttons for Twitter, Facebook and similar online services. This is really handy since most websites now offer social media integration. You can preview a website either inside the app or using a web browser before exporting it.

Without some interactivity, a webpage can lose its appeal. Muse offers options to add animations and scroll effects. The text editing options, paragraph styles and web font collection only add to the creative output options. Rearranging and locking objects used in a page is also simple. Its integration with Adobe Typekit lets you use a wide variety of fonts.

Adobe Muse can create mobile specific sites which is a near mandatory thing nowadays. In fact, the app lets you make three versions of websites- phone, tablet and desktop. It may seem handy but updating content can prove to be tedious because you have to do it thrice. Dreamweaver takes a better approach to resolve this issue.

For all its benefits and ease of use, Muse does come with its shares of quirks. The warning panel can seem a mystery for most users. The link to rate the app is always visible in its UI. The utility of go to page function is another puzzle.

Adobe Muse does not generate semantic code by default. To make your sites designed in the app more search engine friendly, you may have to set up styles manually for headers. It is somewhat puzzling why Adobe did not keep the option for blog in Muse. Adding Google Analytics can prove to be tedious when you work with Muse and manual coding is the way, something which the app was designed to evade in first place.

Positive Points:
•    UI similar to Adobe apps.
•    Website preview within app.
•    Support for tablet and mobile sites.
•    Options to add interactivity.

Negative Points:
•    No option for blog.
•    No inbuilt templates.
•    Not much SEO friendly.
•    Google Analytics addition is tedious.

Conclusion:
Adobe Muse is a versatile and feature rich web design app meant primarily for non coders. People familiar with other Adobe apps will not take long to learn it well. The app lets you build websites from scratch and supports mobile device specific site creation as well. Designing compelling interactive websites with it is not difficult. It offers excellent support for web font usage. However, it is not a flawless app for web design. On the contrary, serious designers will be grudging at the deficits. The app is not much SEO friendly and implementing Google analytics can be quite tedious. It does not support blogs and lack of predefined templates can deter some users. If you can overlook these issues and want a web design tool that creates codes automatically and offers plenty of design element customization, this is the tool to choose.
