"coding and analysis for Mac OS X!"

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
tams is excellent software for coding and analysis of qualitative data, bringing this capability to the Mac after many years of it being absent. I found tams after realizing that my tried and true N4 (Nud*ist) refused to run on Mac OS X, even in classic.

Tams does much of what QSR's Nud*ist N4 package does. All of the basics are certainly present -- coding, memoing, file organization, and searching. Tams has the capability for complex coding and searching, which makes it a great stand-in for Nudist. Though tams is a bit harder to learn, if you already understand the basics of coding data, you can probably dig into tams relatively quickly. I think it took me less than 30 minutes to import and start coding my own documents in at least a basic way. I also appreciate the way that Tams allows you to code text units of any length, down to even a single word. As such, the coding system allows for finer-grained coding and more flexibility than N4.

Tams isn't perfect -- at least not yet. But the developer is responsive, dedicated, and helpful, and he's already included features that I've suggested would be useful. On top of it all, this product is at least partially GPL'd. If you're doing qualitative research or data analysis on the mac, I'd recommend this app. I'm currently working on a large set of data using this program, and have found it invaluable. Learn it, use it, and provide feedback -- that's the only way it will improve.
