Very Nice for Pros and Novices

I really like the look and feel in Essential Anatomy, but it can be difficult to get to some data. I finally figured out how to get the skeletal system to go away, but after touring around with it off, I couldn't find now to turn it back on (it had disappeared from the Control Menu). It would be nice if it was just another side button like Urogenital or Skin. I also haven't been able to figure out how to see some smaller internal items like the inner ear. I know it's a group of nerves, muscles, and bones, but turning those all on means the outer skull is in they way. Without bones, I miss some significant parts of the ear. Slicing doesn't seem to work there, but I'd have to be able to see where I'm slicing anyway.

As I use this for my personal edification, I find that getting to the basic overview is very intuitive. It's easy to get around and see the "big picture." And selecting an item or multiple items is very nice, too. I can see what I've picked, but the item doesn't look obscured. This is a real plus. The whole app feels like it was built for the platform and not simply transferred over from a printed source. I look forward to its further development.

Worthy Investment

When 2D textbook drawings fail you, invest in your medical career by playing with this dynamic, 3D model. As a student of Surgical Technology, I've found it extremely helpful for visualizing the locations of various procedures and the obstacles which present themselves. This app is like a visual encyclopedia or like having Grey's Anatomy at your fingertips to pinch, zoom and isolate points of interest rather than using those fingertips to turn 2D pages. They've cataloged systems great and small and have left 'bookmarks' to save you some work. I was especially amazed by the arterial and venous mapping which they've done, complete with the names of branches and an ever-so-handy 'info' button to explain anything relevant which you might have forgotten under a mountain of homework information.

Simple, Intuitive, Unlimited!

I'm simply a high schooler looking to learn more about anatomy in order to best appreciate my body and my human heritage! The possibilities of exploration due to the fantastic accurate modeling, many body systems, and easy to use though powerful set of tools are nearly unlimited! Thank you developers! You don't need to be interested in or studying medicine in order to become completely immersed in the knowledge and beauty of this app! The app is also 100% smooth and free of bugs and hiccups on the iPad Air 2! I would recommend this app for all ages to anyone and everyone who enjoys learning, exploration, or is just curious about the human body and it's complicated structures and functions!
