Bought this to accompany my reading of a neuroscience text book. Navigating the brain on this app while reading the book definitely enhanced the experience, allowing me to learn the material more quickly. Definitely recommend! Would totally pay for more interactive functionality. Perhaps such things could be added a la carte (.99 to 1.99 a piece)? Maybe add diagrams of motor neurons, interneurons, and glia? Charge for quizzes and flashcards? Great app!
Good app, not worth the "upgrade"
The new version provides higher res images, but only until you pinch-and-zoom. Then they're very pixelated and blurry. I was really hoping the high-res would apply to the zoomed-in images. Some of these structures are very small requiring zooming in. If they can upgrade those it would be worth it.
Good but can't quiz self
This app would seriously improve if you could go into quiz mode and not have all the names and labels pop up all over the place.
Having them on both the top and bottom of the screen makes it hard to try and test one's knowledge.
