Quirkos Cloud Logo

Quirkos is a software package you download for your computer, which can run on Windows, Mac or Linux. From our website, download the latest installer for your computer platform. Quirkos is identical across all operating systems, has the same interface and features, and project files can be opened in any version. You need to install the software, or use Quirkos Web in your browser.

Once you have downloaded the software, find where your browser saved the file, and double click to open it. For Linux installation, you will usually just need to allow the AppImage to be executable - either by right clicking on the download file and choosing Permissions > Allow executing file as program (or similar), or by running chmod +x quirkos-2.5.3.AppImage in the terminal. After this, you can double click on the AppImage to launch it, no install required!.

When you first start Quirkos, it will present you with a 3 week free trial or 14 days of free Quirkos cloud subscription. There are no restrictions on the features or capabilities of the software during the trial period, and projects created during the trial period can be used in the full version. If you choose to buy a licence, the time restriction will be lifted, and there will no longer be a reminder to register the software each time it is started. You can do this by placing an order here at any time.
