Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro to create storyboards to describe the user flow of the app I am building. Moodboards are also used for art and design choices.
  • Easy to enter and exit a particular board
  • Intuitive editing, making simple arrow diagrams, and copy/pasting reference images into the board
  • Intuitive way to quickly add post it notes and more/resize them
  • Offline functionality is not usable, if there is a network disconnect can interrupt the current session with "attempting to reconnect screen"
  • iPad app missing important quality of life features like "two-finger tap to undo" as found in procreate
  • When the board has a lot of images no way to selectively disable rendering of a particular area so the app might lag after the board passes a certain size
  • Reduced project completion time
  • Clarified concepts
  • Aligned team members clearly on the direction and details of the project
  • Gather and keep track of visual references
  • Greater productivity on brainstorming, concepting and planning related tasks
Having a better offline system to allow the taking of private notes that can later be uploaded to a shared board would be very useful as it would make Miro a one-stop place to store all hand-written/visual based notes Improving the experience of the iPad app with quality of life improvements like double finger tap to undo and quick copy-paste of images from the iPad browser can speed up shared workflows when working on an iPad
Most items that I copy/paste such as images and youtube videos are able to be displayed properly with a preview Occasionally a preview/bookmark doesn't show up when I paste a link so I would use a post-it note to store that link
It has improved team alignment on the direction of the project and the details of implementation and made remote work more manageable as there is less confusion between specific details when concepts can be visualized on a shared whiteboard

  • Notion
I use the notion to store text and table/spreadsheet heavy information while using Miro to better visualize/communicate concepts
For creating user flows and mood boards as well as visualizing concepts in a collaborative for it is very good, I can work with my team members to visualize concepts with multiple people adding notes and references sources to the board For real-time note-taking miro will show a loading screen in the slightest interruption so in that case, it is less effective than "static" note-taking apps like apple notes and notability.
