Two Platforms — One Experience

If you are not convinced yet, the following points will definitely win you over, so here is why MAXQDA is the best solution for Mac on the market:

Full range of functionality

Most Mac solutions provided by other companies are limited editions of their Windows solutions — often they are so different that you need two separate sets of manuals. MAXQDA offers 100% research power and 100% state-of-the-art functionality — the Mac version is identical to the Windows version In short: it’s the same By the way: MAXQDA works with universal project files – .mx20 (MAXQDA 2020), .mx18 (MAXQDA 2018) or .mx12 (MAXQDA 12) – which can be opened and edited with both Windows and Mac

Perfect for teams and teaching

We know that research is often a team effort. That is why it is so important that you can collaborate with co-researchers without needing to worry about cross-platform compatibility. MAXQDA’s Mac and Windows versions work together seamlessly. If you are teaching, you and your students will only have to get to know one interface, regardless of your computer preference.
