Help this old NU*DIST find the Mac-based program of my dreams..

Looking for the Mac version of qualitative data analysis software such as Atlas TI, Nvivo, and so on. Anything out there?

I've checked out TAMS, and, meh. I cut my teeth on NU*DIST years ago and no longer have access to a Windows machine (or an INTEL based Mac). Surely there are Mac lovers who are also researchers? Has someone created a great program for content analysis that runs on Macs?

I'm confused by this. Are you looking for something that runs on an old PPC Mac?

Response by poster: Right. Or something that could run on any Mac (but I don't want to install Parallels or some such.) Some of our students don't have newer Macs and can't afford Parallels.

Best answer: I took a quick look at Wikipedia info on QDA Software and found some possible options for you:

HyperRESEARCH runs on Windows and Mac OS

Transana runs under Windows and Mac OS

RQDA runs under Windows, Linux, and Mac OS

Coding Analysis Toolkit is web-based, free and open source

A.nnotate is a web service

MAXQDA will run under Linux using Virtualbox

(The way I found this was by going to the Wikipedia article on Nvivo and looking for the category link at the bottom. I've found that to be a useful way to find and compare software of one type or another.)
