I love this app! So handy! Highly recommended

I have never written a review for an app before, but this is my exception because I just had to after playing around. I am fascinated by the human body and am studying human health currently. I thought it was going to be challenging, but with this app, I say goodbye to all my worries. It has videos, although short are insightful and understandable. You can make your own body tours and search up certain parts and even write on the body image. It also quizzes you and I love that the most. It excites me that something so relevant and reliable exists! I have only had a quick look at the app, but I know from paying for an app that is the equivalent of one of my textbooks, I have never found such a helpful and easy to use source. It will pronounce the parts and read additional information related to that part! Do not underestimate this app! It is amazing and will work so well with my future nursing.

I used to hate anatomy as a medical student. I never really had a full three-dimensional image (like most other students at the time).
Now, exploring the human body in full three dimensions, and the power to remove and re-insert any structure, I absolutely love the adventure of the human body and I find myself reaping pure entertainment from something that used to be unspeakably boring.

Here is one suggestion that would be perfectly suited to this type of program; that is having a functional anatomy program whereby the movement of the limb/etc is first identified (maybe by pulling and dragging), and then the subsequent muscle and tendon components are isolated and displayed automatically by the program. This would be an invaluable tool for physiotherapists, osteopaths, doctors, sports physicians etc

Perfect for med students

I've bought a lot of anatomy apps over the years. I used to always use Essential Anatomy, but this app has progressively gotten better, to the point where I don't use Essential Anatomy anymore. They've listened to customer feedback and wishes, and have produced an excellent app that you actually own for the price (unlike Complete Anatomy..). I highly recommend it for med students like myself, or anyone else studying anatomy.
