Put the power of qualitative data analysis in your pocket! MAXApp is your QDA companion for the road. Perfect for field work, the app allows you to create text documents, record audio and to take or import photos and videos. Add codes, attach memos and pick up location information on the go. You can manage multiple projects which can be effortlessly imported via Dropbox or via USB cable connection to your desktop MAXQDA.
As you collect data, the app enables you to fluidly code your notes. If you're tired of typing MAXApp makes things easy with its innovative emoticode system on top of the regular text code options: choose from over 300 emoticons and symbols to mark anything from entire documents to text abstracts or multimedia files. This coding method is designed specifically for on-the-go functionality, making it easy to keep up regardless of if you’re recording interviews in the field, documenting your surroundings, or reviewing the day’s research in the office.

Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA) lends itself to disciplines such as sociology, political science, psychology, public health, anthropology, education, market research, economics, and urban planning. By tagging pieces of information with codes and emoticodes, MAXQDA generates an intuitive workspace that lets you manage what you know, discover what you don’t, develop your hypotheses, and accommodate research approaches and designs such as text analysis, Grounded Theory, and mixed methods.

Great field tool

I’ve only started using this app, but it makes for a great companion with my laptop based MAXQDA. The one feature I wish it had was a way to upload directly to my computer without DropBox in between. It just takes a few seconds to take it from DropBox into my MAXQDA project, so it isn’t a huge issue, but it would simplify the process

Support PDF please

Nice app for using in the field. Any chance the app will allow importing a pdf from another app using the open in feature? We encounter these in the field and it would be helpful to be able to code pdf on the go.
