App Reviews

  • Great app with one MAJOR flaw

    By caseyprosthetics
    First, I would like to preface this review by saying I LOVE this app. I have used it for 5 years now throughout my undergrad and now in grad school. In undergrad, I primarily used the Mac version of the app with absolutely zero complaints. Beautifully designed, great interface, really helpful, organized information and a cool interactive way to learn anatomy. Overall, great app. However, my one major flaw with the iPad version of the app corresponds with its ability to not recognize the Apple Pencil with certain functions. For example, when selecting a muscle, it works perfectly fine. But, when I try to use the Apple Pencil to tap something like “isolate” or “hide” or “fade” or whatever, it simply does not work. This is extremely frustrating, having to switch between using my fingers and using the pencil. It seems like a flaw or an oversight or something, and I would greatly appreciate amending this issue. After that, the iPad version of this app is easily 5 stars.
  • Missing

    I can’t find the deep external rotators
  • Wonderful!

    By rocket199
    Fantastic for students taking Anatomy and Physiology!
  • Marly

    By Marmaladio
    I like this app but cannot find where you can search for specifics.
  • Nothing compares!

    By miz.liberty
    I bought the bundle pack, all of the apps are outstanding! I'm currently getting back to school for my nursing degree- this is a HUGE help! Well worth the money! This app has also allowed me to isolate to the connective tissue level and show exact pinpoint of elbow pain to my doctor. (He was impressed with this app and now uses it as a tool to help his patients “See” what’s going on when he’s explaining something to them in laymen’s terms so they can understand without confusing 2D diagram printouts!)
  • Worth every penny

    By Kuyaspidey
    This app is amazing, I have never buy apps because I don’t think they are worth the money, but this one is worth it! I love this app.
  • Useful for introductory level courses

    By nick (should of been ceo)
    I have had this app for about 2 and 1/2 years now: If you are an undergraduate student in health/exercise science programs, this app will be your best buddy. It will allow you to really understand everything you are learning and it’s location/orientation within the body. This app comes with so much information and really gets you the most out of the money, even if you don’t find yourself using all of it. The basic functioning is great and really smooth. However, once you begin upper level classes this app will not be what you are looking for. You will need to buy an atlas for access to material that this app does not include. All in all, you should buy this if you are an undergraduate student learning introductory anatomy, kinesiology, etc. You should not buy this app for advanced anatomy, radio graphic/ sectional anatomy, or most other upper level anatomies.
  • More details

    By Dan 393
    Would like to more details of anatomy in joints. Good resource for general anatomy.
  • No way to save notes!?

    By ejholstege
    There no way to save notes?! It’s a phenomenal app, but what’s the point of notes if I can’t save them to read them later? And what’s the point of the app if I can’t study what I need to add to it?
  • Apple pen

    By Adlin P
    Apple pen doesn’t seem to work on some portions of the info box. (Hide, isolate, fade, etc). Also the slice feature only seems to appear when it wants too. Would be nice to be able to add and subtract the skeletal system too because it often gets in the way. The quiz function should have the option to organize things by region. I.e. “back” “upper extremity” instead of by system. My anatomy class is organize by region and all systems are learned together per region. Otherwise pretty useful app.
