Great App for Anyone!!!
„This app can serve anyone who is wanting to learn about anatomy. Whether you are a high school student or a medical professional. A must have for everyone!!”
„Great app but maybe a little on the expensive side.”
Very helpful and smooth to use
„Really exceptional and easy. Gets better with each update.”
Sufficient for a medical student for most structures
„-search -turn structures on/off -detail is sufficient for a med student for most structures (maybe not Brain or Eye), though this company sells a separate app for eye anatomy”
I use....
„I use this app for my A&P class for Surgical Technologies, and this is by far one of the best along with "Touch Surgery"!!!”
No brainer, this is a must buy
„There is a common misconception that to do well in anatomy, you need to make flashcards. In my opinion, this could not be more incorrect. To understand anatomy you need to understand the purpose of the origins, how the insertions dictate actions and how the action interact with other muscle groups. Flashcards can't tell you this. And flashcards can't help you understand how all of this changes in the face of injury. Being able to manipulate the anatomy with your fingertips, to be able to clearly see demarcated origins and insertions sites, and tracing blood supplies and innervations to their roots is so valuable to actually understanding anatomy. And understanding anatomy is way more time efficient than memorizing it. As part of my anatomy class, I had to purchase a $380 computer program to do half the amount of processing that this app can do. Furthermore that program is restricted to being utilized by a CD-ROM (which is so fabulous considering I have a MacBook air). Case closed. This is the monopoly of all anatomy programs out there and if I could return the CD ROM anatomy program I would. Not acquiring this app is simply doing a disservice to your academic pursuits. Hurry up and buy this app ASAP to make time up for time lost not using it. (that's how I felt when I bought it, and I'm incredibly frugal!)”
Love it! In God we trust! Very good app
„No complaints so far”
„This app is really beyond discreption. I cant study for my anatomy tests without it. it'd be better i think if you improve the 'pen' feature by adding more colours other than the green. also allowing 'typing' on the screen -helps in identifying body parts during studying- another small little tiny thing..any time i press the 'x' button in the search area i have to press on the search space AGAIN to type. its a lot easier when 'searching' happens continually Million thanks for this app Hamad.”
Awesome app
„Very beneficial and educational app. Easy to use and very detailed. I would recommend it to anyone!”
A must have!
„Suffered from shoulder pain for a number of years, searched a lot of different resources to gain a greater understanding of my shoulder anatomy, and total physical anatomical structure in general. Worth the money?...absolutely! I use it in conjunction with webinars, books, and physical therapy sessions. The layers of tissues, vascular, muscular systems and how they are able to be added and removed sets a new standard in the way of helping the novice understand the human body. A tremendous resource, Keep on improving it. Thanks!”
Contra (7%)
Good, but annoying
„This app has its strong points. However, the most annoying aspect is when you are just browsing through the app to learn structures. There needs to be an option to dock the description box somewhere out of the way on the screen. If you move it to get a better look at a structure, then click another structure, it returns right back in the way.”
„No sound at all!”
Upgrade removed features
„I used to be able to see the brain, but with one of the upgrades it was removed and put in a separate app. I purchased this app for the brain capabilities only, and now it is useless to me and I have to purchase a whole separate app.”
Nope, doesn't work.
„Thanks for taking my money though.”
I want my money back
„I have an iPad mini. The app crashes even when I use it in optimal settings. Please give me my money back. Do not download this app, I am a medical student and can't use it without it crashing and shutting down in 2 minutes or less!”
