Ratings and Reviews
Learning anatomy has never been easier thanks to this fun, kid-friendly app. By tapping on interactive layers of the human body, users can see various parts and systems in action: lungs breathe, muscles bend, ears listen, and nerves respond to a pinprick. Plus, simple one-touch recording lets children leave questions for an adult to answer later, encouraging discussion of the many processes they’ve observed.
A Little Clumsy But Very Interesting
The apps controls are a bit clumsy, and it’s hard to view any system without interference from the side panel and there not being enough space to swipe the ‘switch’ all the way back and forth to change internal and external views.
I feel like you could fully enjoy this app with an iPad instead of a phone.
There’s just not enough space to explore everything without accidentally knocking over labels and things. It’s certainly better suited for kids than adults as it does not provide any readable content on each system or part- but if you’ve taken anatomy before (even just in high school) then it can be a nice reminder of our basic functions through basic observation.
It’s cute and entertaining but the clumsiness of the controls and the lack of info provided confuses me- it doesn’t provide explanation for things- it seems the goal is to learn by watching the simple mechanics of each system- which can be confusing at times and made me want to look up how exactly something worked. If you’re looking to spark curiosity in a child this is a great app- if you’re looking for an app to actually learn about the human body and it’s functions then I’d turn to the internet instead.
Hi & thank you so much for the review! We're sorry to hear that you were having trouble with the app's controls. We'd love to hear more about what you were experiencing so that we can improve the app. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙌 We've also created a handbook to go along with the app that explains a lot of the interactions and their functions. You can find the handbook in the parent dashboard of the app or here: https://tinybop.com/assets/handbooks/the-human-body/Tinybop-EL1-Human-Body-Handbook-EN.pdf.
SImple and cool
My son who is now 4 has loved this app for the past half year. We were learning about the human body and why he should eat healthy so that everything works well together. And this is exactly what he needed. It does not just give him the information in text or spoken form, he gets to take the lead in experimenting. He can feed the avatar too fast to where it starts getting gassy and he can feed it then try to run and see how eating too close to heavy exercise affects his digestion. He also saw how bad bacteria is fought by his white blood cells and he even made a craft and was excited by it. Thanks for such a simple but creative way to get kids exploring and learning on their own.!
