We are proud to announce the newest feature of MAXApp for Android – a feature requested by many of our users: The option to save all of your MAXApp projects to your Android device. From now on it is possible to safely transfer MAXApp projects to your computer – simply by connection the two devices with a USB cable.

MAXApp (for Android und iOS) is the perfect addition to MAXQDA. Use the App to take notes and photos or record audio and video in the field. Start coding your data directly on your smartphone or tablet and continue with your analysis in MAXQDA afterwards.

Meet the new export option: Save to Device

The new MAXApp version lets you choose between two options to safely transfer your data from your smartphone or tablet to your computer: “Upload to Dropbox” or “Save to device”.
