MAXApp is a free app for iOS and Android that allows you to collect data from fieldwork (photos, sound recordings, videos, texts). The data can then be exported later via Dropbox or by a connection to a computer and then imported into an open MAXQDA project. The documents are imported into a new document group, including their respective memos, codings, emoticodes and geographic data, if available.
