Code fluently with Codes and Emoticodes as you go

Text documents display codes in the familiar coding stripes right next to the text, that you know and love from MAXQDA.

Attach additional notes to your data with memos

Have something important you need to remember about your note, pictures, videos or audio recordings? Write it down in a memo, that stays attached to your data, even after you transfer it to MAXQDA.

A memo is the perfect place for all the important information that could otherwise get lost. It could also hold the beginning of case summaries for each case, information about the situation in which the data was collected or anything else you need to remember.

Memos play an important role in MAXQDA and the built in memo manager offers advanced note taking and note searching features.

Use geo tags to add a geographical dimension to your analysis

Your smart phone often knows where you are. Take advantage of your device’s GPS functionality and automatically tag your data with the location you’re at, or pick a location straight from the map.

Connect the dots – MAXQDA can connect your data to Google Earth data, which makes it possible to combine qualitative and geographical data. Wether you wish to group your data by country, compare findings between different parts of town, or track movement behaviour in a specific area, MAXApp makes it so much easier to collect the information you need.
