ATLAS.ti, by Scientific Software Development, is a long-time popular code-and-retrieve software packages for Qualitative research. It was originally designed for grounded theory analysis, but now is flexible enough to handle many purposes. Atlas.ti is now at version 8, which has been updated substantially from Atlas.ti 7 (and 6) and may be catching up in usability to other qualitative options. Compared to other qualitative software, Atlas.ti tends to have more flexibility with viewing and searching.
