Good It is Good
It has a lot of potential, but a bad achilles' heel: namely, its lack of compatibility between different versions (especially, in my case, between the Mac and Android versions), which–as other reviewers have noted–is exactly what would make this app attractive. Beyond that, customer support is not entirely responsive, even for a paying customer (with a license to the desktop Mac version). Two suggestions: First, please do allow us to sync projects across devices. Second, it would be great to have a "watch folder" option and automatically sync documents from our desktops onto ATLAS, whenever ATLAS opens. A key detail there is that this function should also organize documents in a way that directly mirrors the subfolder organization of the "watched" folder. Thanks!
it collapses when exporting apart from not exporting a project, it made disappeared a text that I had imported into the said project. I lost all the coding and quotations. The project did not exceed the maximum size or number of codes and quotations established.
Practically useless for my purposes Without the ability to transfer a project from the desktop to the tablet and back, this app has no value to me. I am very disappointed. I created my project on the desktop version, but hoped to do the bulk of my coding on the go. Nope! Also, it seems impossible to export the audio I recorded within the app as a stand alone file. I wanted to transcribe the audio I recorded with the app, but I couldn't access it any which way to Sunday. Good thing I used a second recording device. The two stars are for potential, but unless an update adds the aforementioned functions, I'll be forced to discard the app.
Great add-on for field work The Android version is a great add-on to what I consider to be the best software for 'grounded theory'. I have used Atlas.ti since 10 years - the Android version just facilitates data gathering&coding in the field tremendously.
Good and interesting soft for qualitative analysis It's a good idea to expand Atlas.ti for tablet PC segment. I have an experience with desktop Atlas.ti version and I think the tablet version lacks of the following functions: - Import project from desktop version. I want to have a possibility to code and revise transcripts both on my laptop and Nexus tablet. To have possibility to share projects between laptop and tablet is really must. - to have a revision mode, e.g. if my colleague coded some transcripts and send me the bundle for revision and I can open this transcript with a list of codes that s/he used to make my coding and compare it with initial coding. That I'm really missing now. - import list of codes exported from "big" version of Atlas.ti i.e. desktop one. - export coded transcripts in PDF with highlighted quotations and assigned codes ( this option is also missing in desktop version).
