MAXApp Feature Wish List

19.02.2014, 23:35

I find the idea of MAXApp every interesting; however, in practice it is not especially useful for my purposes. The text editor is not full featured enough to write detailed fieldnotes. In addition, the coding functionality basically assumes open coding. There is no way to import lists of previously used codes from MAXQDA. In my opinion, the app would benefit greatly from the following:

1. Better text editing capability
2. The ability to open document files created in other applications. In other words, having MAXApp be an option in Pages and similar programs under the "Open in" command. This may negate the need for serious text editing functions within the app itself.
3. The ability to import codes from a MAXQDA file so that documents can use both newly generated codes and codes created in the main project.
4. The ability to import documents from MAXQDA to code. I would love to be able to handle routine coding of existing MAXQDA documents on my iPad with its touch screen. In fact, this is what I first assumed the app would allow me to do. I was disappointed to learn that it's only designed to write new notes/codes and then import them into MAXQDA. I would absolutely love to do the opposite as well; import (perhaps partial) MAXQDA files into MAXApp, work on them and then export them back to my main project file.

I'd be curious whether other users have similar feelings about what a mobile QDA app should be able to do.

I agree with all the above - mostly number four. It would be fantastic to be able to use my iPad to code existing MAXQDA projects. I, too, was initially thinking that's what the app would do.

One more vote for number 4! This is what the main function of the MAXapp should be, this is what the Atlas.ti ipad app does (even if it does have its own problems).

Just requested something very similar. Bringing ones codes into the field setting is the essential aspect to me. Also coding articles in the tablet format would be very useful.
