MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

It's great when you need to drive real decision making and action; the voting tool is particularly useful in this regard. It's a great tool to use when you want to hear all voices, and not just from the loudest individuals. I've used Mural extensively over the last two years, and I've developed an online course in how to use the tool. I've run hundreds of participative workshops with it too, it's my 'go to' for running engaging remote workshops.

Samepage

Samepage is well suited to situations:- when there is a need for ongoing collaboration between people- when these people lack tech skills- when there is a need for sharing and showing different kinds of mediaSamepage is less appropriate in situations (since there are better tools for those particular uses):- requiring more robust communication tools - when the objective is to execute a specific, finite task- when it is necessary a precise control of version history

Pros

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • It allows you to build from independent work to group exercises and discussions and using brainstorming and the voting tool to drive decision making and action.
  • It has functionality that allows you to bring your audience to different areas of the whiteboard using the 'summon everyone' function, and move between delivering material with 'presentation mode' and interactive exercises where students contribute ideas or suggestions.
  • It offers an interactive and engaging platform for collaboration and costs can be kept low because people can join sessions as visitors.

Samepage

  • All communication is literally on one page, so you don't have to learn its navigation. Cuts the learning curve.
  • User interface is very simple. WYSIWYG.
  • The mobile app works well and I like how it syncs with the desktop version.
  • Just discovered the Dropbox sync. Very cool. Works way better than Dropbox at sharing files!

Cons

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • The only thing that used to bug me about Mural was the fact that you couldn’t identify participants who joined as visitors (one time collaborators appear as anonymous animals). I noticed recently that visitors can now add their name which is really useful. I expect this change came from Mural user feedback, they do seem to develop the features over time.
  • Sometimes participants can't see images that you add to the whiteboard. There's a way around it but it's a little frustrating and I'm not sure why it happens.

Samepage

  • It can feel hard at times to get a real big picture view of all the projects and pages happening at the same time. It is easy to drill down or zoom out on specific pages, but it doesn't feel like you're getting a sense of overview or moving pieces for multiple pages.
  • There is really no way to have subtasks within larger tasks, and that is sorely missing.
  • It can be quite difficult to get team members up and running - there is a bit of a learning curve and it's not extremely intuitive.

We started using Samepage's free trial and hadn't used it enough by the time it was over. But they were very gracious in extending our trial and giving us extra Pages to use to be sure it met our needs. I love when software companies act like real people, care about our success and realize we are working off deadlines. We are now a paid user.

Samepage

Samepage stacks up very well against these other software programs, although it has its own advantages and disadvantages -- the grass is always greener on the other side. This software did what its main purpose was. It would have been great if it could be upgraded over a period of time with sharper graphics and better integration with mobile support.
