I am a visual artist and professor focused primarily on figure drawing and animation. THIS is the app for we in this field. Get it. Spend the $. Yes, some of the books we use are great - especially for translation into drawing concepts but THIS is what you need to truly understand FUNCTIONAL human anatomy and the real deal with all the systems. Probably esp great if you are doing 3D work. This is a 'rigging' reference all should have. Animators in the 2D world, yes - this is the app to get. If you are taking any of the ongoing courses for animators in the guild and elsewhere, get this app - it will make everything much more understandable. And if you are an illustrator or focused on drawing the figure from life, this is the 21st century version of everything we don't get from Bridgeman's classic texts. DOWNSIDE (and reason for 4 stars): The UX could be better but it is pretty good all in all and the app on mobile platforms such as an iPad (which is where most of we artists are using it of course...) takes a LOT of battery power so... always be prepared to charge after using or use while plugged into power.
Love the new addition of radiology content. Plese add a way to smoothly scroll through an MR on one side with model scrolling throuh at the same time on the left
I got this at the recommendation of my brother who is a third year medical student and swears by this app. It is a little hard to navigate but with time you get used to the best ways to explore. I love the video lectures because there is no comparison to regular lecture and learning on a 3D model. I say great "so far" because I have not yet taken an anatomy test since beginning to use this app, so I will report back if it made a difference or not. For $35 for students for the first year, I didn't see a downside to trying so would certainly recommend trying it especially for the price point
As stated in the title, it would be nice to move the skeleton to view the articulations within each joint (ie. roll/glide opposite or same, spin, closed/open chain examples). If not all joints, then maybe just the main ones that are taught such as talocrural, subtalar, knee, wrist, spine, SI, OA/AA. This would help tremendously. Other than that, it's a phenomenal app. I would get this over a textbook any day.
The app has way too many user interface glitches. The videos in a set of lectures will play perfectly fine when first time playing that lecture set. After that first time, the glitches and lack of user interface controls almost makes it impossible to rewatch. It's been like this for at least past 3 months and I don't understand why it hasn't been fixed. Really don't feel like I'm getting my money's worth, given how much the app's membership costs.
I cannot believe how insanely difficult it is to figure out how to make a simple quiz. The UI is terrible. The interaction is terrible. I needed to utilize a quiz feature to help with my anatomy. Unfortunately, this ain't it, chief.
I love this app for the models portion of it, as it is SUPER helpful for visualizing the body. It serously helped me learn and understand the material so much easier, however there were several glitches this semester where we weren't able to access our assigned lectures, which was very frustrating. It also takes a lot of computer power to run this program. However, I heard that there were so many glitches this semster due to having a huge influx of users due to online learning during COVID. Hopefull they are able to fix the glitches because other than that this app is AMAZING!
I am an educator at a small community college and through this software I have maintained a high level of engagement with my students during this pandemic environment. Much of kinesiology instruction has been, traditionally, hands-on; being unable to do such this software has been a valuable teaching aid.
Great app, however, whenever I launch the app a seperate 'appstoreagent' process runs alongside this app at over 100% CPU usage. There are other various processes that also peak, but this process has to be terminated in Activity Monitor in order to use this app in a stable manner. Thanks for your consideration.
It is genuinely impressive how detailed, accurate, and helpful the content on this app. If only I could access it without the app crashing after using it for only a few minutes.
