Ratings and Reviews

Stunning visuals, highly functional app


This atlas is one of the most functional and visually stunning atlases on the App Store today. The high resolution images are extremely detailed and well thought out to display human anatomy at it's finest. The quiz functionality is also phenomenal as well. Both the iPad and the iPhone versions work beautifully well in day to day use, with a UI that makes it easy to navigate the atlas without getting in the way. A few quirks that will hopefully get fixed in future updates are as follows:

-Split screen mode on iPad has a tendency to mess up its formatting after continued use. Thumbnails will appear small and usually require closing out of the app to be restored
-There is a sync functionality to sync bookmarks between multiple versions of the app that, unfortunately, crashes the app when used
-Switching back to the app sometimes brings up a loading screen that requires reselecting the current plate

Overall, this app is incredibly well polished and deserves your consideration. There is a free version of this app on the App Store that has the same functionality just with fewer plates if you want to give the app a test drive. You can also download individual chapters in the free app for $9.99 if you don't need the full atlas.

All images included. Great app
