Qiqqa Comments

Amazing Qiqqa - Big Fan.

Positive Comment by drzahiduom
about Qiqqa Dec 2016

I am using Qiqqa for almost six years now. Qiqqa is one of my must have package, and I use it on daily basis. It helped me a lot during my thesis writing particularly. I always strongly recommend it to my research students and colleagues. Though, the interface seems a bit complex at first, but when you get use to it, you will appreciate the endless functionalities it offers. I wish, I could have a premium account.

Five Stars from me.

Easy to understand and use. It makes all my research go easier.

I love how it identifies and uploads all the papers I am using (sometimes it makes mistakes though).

There is no Linux option.

about Qiqqa Jul 2015

They have very clearly stated in their download page (http://www.qiqqa.com/Download) as of July 2015:

"A Linux version is not currently available."

Moderator could you please remove the 'linux' tag.

  • Please note - having a web option does not make it linux. They should give a package that I can download and install on my machine.

  • A firefox plugin does not make it linux.
