Graphic Designers Now Able to Create Mobile Websites with Adobe Muse

Adobe Muse enables you to create and publish distinctive, professional HTML websites without writing code. And now, you can create unique tablet and smartphone versions of your websites using new mobile features available in an update to Adobe Muse.

This update is a direct response to customer demands for mobile device support. Mobile-friendly websites are vital for businesses today – IDC estimates that by 2015 more end users will access the Internet through a mobile device than a PC. Because of this, designers and their clients are realizing the need to provide an optimal viewing experience whether sites are viewed on a large monitor while sitting at a desk or on a smaller screen while on-the-go.

New features in Adobe Muse include:

  • Mobile Layout Options: Select a tablet or smartphone layout in the planning stage, and define the site plan and master pages to create unique layouts for each.
  • Mobile Content and Style Options: Design the content and style of each experience.
  • Touch-Enabled Interactivity: Link phone numbers to automatically dial when tapped, email addresses to open an email client with the “To” address already filled in.
  • Gesture-Enabled Widgets: Copy and paste Adobe Muse widgets in mobile layouts – site menu navigation, slideshows, page-swipes, and more will work automatically, with the touch of a finger.

Adobe Muse is available in Creative Cloud and you can download it here. If you already have Muse installed, just open the application and click “Install Now” on the updater screen to get these new features. For more information about Adobe Muse, go here.

    This is what’s been keeping me from using Muse!

    Very exciting.

      So it’s really a matter of not being able to previously make excellent Mobil sites?

  • By Rob Schnapp - 12:02 PM on December 11, 2012  

    Awesome!

    I’ve been improvising my own solutions to this problem on my own. Very excited to see how the Muse team solved it.

    Tutorials anywhere?

      YES!! Great to HEAR, as I’ve been going more towards wordpress because my Muse sites weren’t ‘mobile friendly’ or responsive etc. Also YES wondering Are there tutorials??
      Thank YOU MUSE for continuing your improvements into an every changing web world #2013
      What about converting our current sites previously built…?

      • By Megan - 1:50 PM on December 21, 2012  

        Hi Sterling. To convert sites, you should open your previously built Adobe Muse file and republish with the latest update of Adobe Muse. This will convert your previous Adobe Muse file & website to use the latest features added. For example. If you’ve created a Desktop site with slideshows in Adobe Muse, you can open that file and republish the site. Republishing it will give your slideshows touch / swipe support. Hope this helps!

    • By Megan - 1:49 PM on December 21, 2012  

      Hi Rob, I would recommend you check out the videos here. I hope they’re helpful!

  • By Bill Murphy - 6:28 PM on December 11, 2012  

    Great news. Will check it out right away. Love that new features keep coming and that Adobe is listing. One great big Thank you, to Adobe.

  • By Margot Grouse - 10:27 PM on December 11, 2012  

    Thanks! Just what we’ve been waiting for. I’ll give it a whirl.

    The updater does not work, downloads everything 100% then comes up with an error message “Sorry an error has occurred. The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged. Try obtaining a new installer file from the application author.”!!!!!!

    Another thing that really irks me is that the updater does not come up in the application manager. Nor does the updates for Illustrator or Photoshop

    • By oooMARSooo - 8:36 AM on January 11, 2013  

      I had a very similar experience the first couple of times I attempted to the whole Creative Cloud on my computer. I honestly would just recommend giving it a day or two. LOL I’m sure the experts helped you better though, of course.

  • By Sharon - 4:47 AM on December 12, 2012  

    Fantastic.

  • By Hod Berman - 5:30 AM on December 12, 2012  

    very nice update!

    I must try this software Adobe Muse.

  • By Patrick - 12:52 AM on December 13, 2012  

    No mention of the word ‘responsive’. Hopefully this is what they mean, downloading now and looking forward to seeing what can be done.

  • By Sal Salas - 10:08 AM on December 13, 2012  

    Great News!! Thanks Adobe Muse team.

      Sorry to hear you are having issues. See if following the instructions from Colby in this post solve your problem. If not, I recommend using that forum to get assistance from our support teams. Thanks!

  • By bill - 12:53 PM on December 16, 2012  

    how many persons( or limits ) can a team consist of in creative cloud..

  • By Jeff M - 5:17 PM on December 16, 2012  

    Where’s the “Updater Screen”?

  • By Andrea - 1:44 AM on December 17, 2012  

    Very interesting, we are going to try this in the Christmas holidays!! :))

  • By Robert Evans - 9:14 PM on December 19, 2012  

    This is amazing news; I can’t wait to try it. Are there restrictions, such as whether you can create them for all carriers (like AT&T), all phones (Android, iOS) and 4G LTE or other speeds? I’ve got a client in Dallas who’s going to love this.

    • By Megan - 1:54 PM on December 21, 2012  

      Hi Robert! There are some restrictions (such as, it only works for smart phones) but as for carriers – there are no limitations. Simply add a phone version of your site and design out that site plan and pages as you like them in Adobe Muse. Here’s a link to a tutorial.

      Once finished, export your site. You have three options:
      1) Export to HTML (you would then have to upload the site to an existing hosting service)
      2) Upload to FTP (you can FTP your site to an existing hosting service)
      3) Publish (Publish your website to Adobe Business Catalyst)

      If you want to share your work in progress, simply click Publish and it will create a Trial Site on Adobe Business Catalyst which you can view on your Desktop, Tablet & Phone or share the link for your colleagues or clients to check out.

      Also note that if you have a subscription to Adobe Muses you get 1 webBasics hosting included and if you have a Creative Cloud subscription you get 5 webBasics hosting included. To use them simply publish your site (click Publish), then click Manage which will take you to your site’s Manage page. From there click ‘Push Site Live’ (towards the bottom of page) to use your included webBasics hosting plan.

      Hope this helps.

    What’s Going down i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I have found It positively helpful and it has helped me out loads. I am hoping to give a contribution & help different customers like its helped me. Good job.

  • By ChefEng - 10:17 PM on December 23, 2012  

    Hi, this is a very nice feature to be able to design both desktop and mobile versions of the website in Muse, but can you please tell us, does “adaptive”, or “responsive” design feature now available to Muse users? I mean, when browser window resizes, content of the site is moving and resizing according to new browser size. Thanks.

  • By NA - 6:58 AM on January 10, 2013  

    Would be nice to see the new features, if just the update would work.
    Any ideas for the German customers?!?!?!?!

  • By Rob Hughey - 8:39 AM on January 11, 2013  

    I guess I’m just daft, as I still don’t fully see the appeal, but I guess when I’m not struggling for connections so often, especially when that fiber optic cable is about to be plugged in.

    It ….well, it will now FLY!

  • By ian clifford - 1:42 PM on January 12, 2013  

    i would love to compliment adobe on there download service two minutes to pay ,two ####### years to find the right button to press much like the softwear.

  • By Kevin Knight - 5:47 AM on January 16, 2013  

    It’s all very well making updating easy but don’t you think that the updates should list changes and most IMPORTANTLY explain if is compatible with with hardware. Have just updated to find that 3d abilities have been disabled due to graphics card.
    Have contacted support and posted on various blogs but how do you revert and download the previous version without the update. A business has all sorts of financial commitments and having to upgrade hardware is not part of the budget at this time if the yesr.
    Please with the improvements but they are irrelevant if it disables part of the software that you are subscribed to.

  • By Kevin Knight - 5:50 AM on January 16, 2013  

    Just realised that this has landed on wrong post but still relevant

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

    Each new tool threatens those who’s livelihoods are invested in yesterdays technology. It will benefit both professionals and amateur, if something is easier to use and gets the same or better results. Is what makes the difference between graphics on a chariot and let’s say, a vehicle graphics from Calgary!
