New to Mural and loving it, but...

Not sure if I am missing something or have bad settings, but everything is fine in the web version, but I find the Windows and iPad apps to be lacking in features.

I normally prefer to use apps and expect richer feature sets, but for example I could not add a new person to a private room in either app, but it's a cinch in the web-browser.

What do you guys use? Do you prioritize between the web and the apps for different things, let me know.

  • Hey @Kevin_L, this is a great point! I'm excited to here what how others use the app versus the desktop experience. In the meantime if you have specific ideas for what you would like to see in the apps, please consider posting a feature idea! The product team would love to see them!

    Hi @Kevin_L,

    about my usage pattern: I use the web version all the time and I love it since it's the most feature complete version to use and it works well on PCs and Macs etc. We've had some trouble regarding this with e.g. Microsoft Whiteboard where the apps have more features than the browser version and there is no version for Mac for example. Therefore I really love the full web client.

    I have somtimes used the iPad App to add some small thing on the go or to draw easier than with mouse, but that's it.



  • The iPad app works well with the drawing functionality -- when working on a board on my desktop -- I like that I can also join from my iPad and add sketches and drawings to the board seamlessly. Works well with Apple Pencil in that regard. But there is certain limitations to the app on iPad not the least of which is screen size.

    Yeah, I believe this works great!

    Unfortunately most of my collaborators do not have iPads and pencils :-(. That's why I am looking for a better drawing experience when using mouse and/or trackpad.
