Comments and Ratings for Essential Anatomy 5

Best anatomy learning tool (5.0.5)
29/04/2017 05:05:22 5/5 By Dudeee.No.You just killed it.
I am studying an anatomy degree at university and this is by far the best learning tool I have to aid me. The anatomy is spot on and it includes in depth information about each part. I find it particularly useful when learning the muscles as it tells you the origins, insertions, bloody supply and nerve supply. I use this app on my macbook and I think it’s great!

Best investment of med school (5.0.2)
18/06/2016 16:12:00 5/5 By Llkiijhh
This app has been the best investment I’ve made in medical school. Within a week of buying it I bought both in app ad ons and it has only enhanced my knowledge. I’m not the smartest medical student you’ll meet, but this app has massively helped me and I can only thank the developers for this app and making the long nights that little bit easier. A must buy for every medical student. Fantastic in every way. The only down side is that some structures have several names so you might not always find what you’re looking for first time (this is only regarding a few things though, so its not that big of a deal).

As a therapeutic radiography student who finds anatomy dull, my eyes lit up when i saw this app. It was expensive but nothing compared to most textbooks. I downloaded it and boom - a blank screen. I tried force quitting and deleting and redownloading to no prevail. I was p’eed. however, I clicked on app support and followed the simple instructions and it works! It will surely help me overcome my anatomy fears. My only critique is the depth of anatomy. It is useful if you are trying to learn the loactaions and names of structures, however further depth is required. It is useful for me as a first year, but as I progress it will surely deteriorate in value. The slice function would be SO SO SO SO helpful for me, however it is really rather rubbish. For example a slice of a long bone shows you what looks like spongy bone, but what about the rest? It would be helpful to include some microscopic anatomy and cell types etc.

Needs Spinal Vasculature! (5.0.2)
07/04/2016 01:13:00 5/5 By Med Student UK
Brilliant app which is the next best thing to a cadaver/ prosections. This makes it truely an essential to anyone needing to learn anatomy. However, while I understand you can never recreate every detail in an app, there really needs to be an expansion of spinal cord anatomy which is virtually non existent.

Good App (5.0.1)
27/02/2016 11:44:00 4/5 By McCaliber
Good app overall but it can be tricky to get the right point of view.

ITS GOOD BUT…. (5.0.1)
17/02/2016 18:41:00 4/5 By im not made of money
great app, but very annoyed that I am not able to have this on both my mac and ipad without repurchasing!! This is especially annoying considering the price!

Doesn’t work (0)
04/11/2015 21:02:00 1/5 By Eastyboygsi
Purchased this and waited quite a while for it to download and install. Started the application, and it just comes up with a blank screen. Deleted it an re-installed, same result. Will be asking for a full refund

Fantastic. (5.0)

Can’t beat this for visualising anatomy - it’s better than dissection or any textbook.

5 stars and a suggestion (5.0)
11/01/2015 13:13:00 5/5 By Elphara
Once again an amazing update! I love this application, it’s outstanding. A suggestion if I may: It would be great to be able to fade from the Control Menu, rather than just the On/Off option. That way I would be able to fade a whole system (say the veins) in one click, or just in the region I’m interested in. Rather than click on each vein… if you see what I mean! Keep up the good work. 5stars.

This application is outstanding for providing a basic to intermediate understanding of human anatomy and should provide an invaluable tool for schools. I'm very impressed by the detail and the ability to rotate a 3D model. The Urogenital systems for both male and female have now been added.
