See your qualitative data come to life

Drag, drop, grow.

Quirkos helps you immerse yourself in your qualitative text data, and create themes to understand your findings.

Bubbles represent your codes and themes; just drag and drop text on them to annotate them. Codings show in real-time, and flexible tools explore your codes and take you back to the data.

    If you are used to coding with highlighters and printed transcripts, Quirkos makes the transition easy. Create Word files of your coded transcripts that look just like highlighted printouts.
