The Genetic Counseling Aids app contains color illustrations of traditional and non-traditional modes of inheritance, normal and abnormal karyotypes, FISH for aneuploidy and deletion syndromes, prenatal diagnosis (amniocentesis, CVS, PUBS), DNA probe analysis and other subjects for use in clinical counseling or in the classroom.
Ratings and Reviews
Ok, but not much more
Decided to go ahead and purchase this to have on my iPad. And as a former librarian, I very much respect and appreciate intellectual property (although open access and Creative Commons are always preferred). The materials themselves are good, so not a huge regret, but the app leaves much to be desired. It’d be great if I could create and store multiple slideshows (either within the app or on export), but no such luck as far as I can tell. You can export single images, but not a curated set. And you can’t combine visuals from the sections into a slide show, either, which means this is essentially useless in an actual session. The draw function isn’t working at all, which is really frustrating, too. And why is “resources” just a calculator? The iPad actually comes with that.
Good but needs work
I love this app. I am a second-year genetic counseling student and I use this all the time. However, I really wish there was a way to edit or delete visual aids. For example, I accidentally uploaded the same visual aid twice without naming it, and now there is no way for me to delete one and edit the other so that I could add a title for it. Also, although I’m very happy to have paid what I did for the app to have it all in one place, I do think that it is a little overpriced for its current state.
Also I second the review that points out there is no way to draw on the visual aids once they are a part of a slideshow.
I love having these visual aides on my iPad to use when talking to families ; however for he price I wish it was a more dynamic app. I hope to see updates including the ability to set an order of images for different situations, write on capability, animation of basic concepts, links to common counselor resources.
