Ratings and Reviews
I used to enjoy this app until the last update.. it keeps crashing!!! Please fix
Pretty disappointed with app quality
I was very excited to purchase this app and actually bought several of the companies applications at one time because a friend of mine showed me how awesome and useful they were on his IPad. The Iphone application, however, does not have the same 3D viewer options or 3D model options as the IPad version does!! The application is notably clunky and provides a poor user experience. I do not have an IPad, but I have a MacBook. I tried to download the app onto my computer hoping that it would have the viewer options, but the application for muscle locations isn't even in the MacBook app store.. The application is not unusable, but it is not enjoyable to use.. Please upgrade the locations option to a viewer and do some fine tuning! The application is not far off and contains good info, but right now the info provided does not flow together well for people who are visual learners. Overall, the app in it's current state is just sort of annoying to use.
Okay but not great
As a grad student of phys therapy I got this app to review for a clinical and think it helps however the pictures are not very helpful at all most muscles do not even allow you to see both attachment sites as there is only one picture for each. Many muscles are isolated missing key reference muscles that would be used to find the muscle being viewed either clinically or academically. I'd say it's worth the few bucks but don't rely on this as your only study aide if you want to be able to visualize the muscles. The app would also benefit from pictures and descriptions of arteries and nerves such as the branches if the brachial plexus, distribution of peripheral nerves, myotomes, and derma tomes
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
