  • Great med school anatomy source but could be expanded

    By kinqofhearts
    For basic anatomy it is a great source for basic anatomy. I still use my thieme and other atlas’s for charts, finer detail, and diagrams. This atlas would plenty suffice for any review, but as an osteopathic student with higher goals, I wish there were expansions on the kinetic chains, the fasciae layers and connections, more muscle subdivisions (especially for the trapezius), neuroanatomy (which feels like it could use some help), and different posturing. The current setup does display the individual components really well at the sacrifice of the interconnections and unity of the anatomic system. Extra selection/exclusion criteria would be cool. It would be nice to single out the anatomy that may be localized to the tributaries and targets of a single nerve/spinal segment/lymph node region etc or to toggle by function (extensors/flexors, etc). The lack of specificity in this along with the lack of position changes makes the app feel stale. The search option is an amazing tool though the process can feel like a time sink if you have more than 3 items to select for. Aside from this the app feels very easy to use, and is a great resource that I highly recommend. I would really appreciate the addition of counterstrain and trigger points for individual muscles along with the chapman points in their periosteal/fascial homes, but I understand this is a real niche for bodyworkers.
  • Frustrating to use

    By anonymous internist
    Not enough details on pictures. Search screens not easily accessible. Paid good money for this several years ago. Stopped using due to frustration. Decided to try again and they want me to pay more to upgrade.
  • It’s ok

    By 1drakefan
    I honestly don’t think the app is that bad. But it would be nice if they had motions associated with the actions to help see how they shorten during a concentric contraction etc. please add motions with the actions
  • Very detailed

    By Ablazvick
    Lots of detail but some muscles are labeled differently such as the Peroneus Longus and Brevis are labeled Fibularis Longus and Brevis so it's a little distracting
  • amazing

    Love it
  • Great but...

    By Elephantshoes0421
    Where’s the Levator Palpebrae Superioris?
  • Awesome

    By Special Forces#31
    I was extremely happy with my choice to buy this app. I am going over the bones in my anatomy 201 class and didn’t want to have to constantly go to the tutoring center to get a hands-on experience with the bones. This app gives me a hands-on experience and it allows me to pinpoint specific areas as we go over them in class. Easy 5 stars.
  • Incredible app

    By Dan Reprime
    As a trainer and bodyworker, this is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Only complaint is I don’t see the longus colli muscle on this app. Other than that the detail is incredible
  • Nickle and dime you

    By couldabeenagoodapp
    Thought I was purchasing a detailed digital atlas of the human anatomy, but for $15 you get the basic skull. No transverse or sagital views into the skull etc. If you want that you must pay additional $$$. Could be great, but sadly just a money pit.
