  • I can’t say enough good things

    I am a Physical Therapist. I have been using the muscle and skeletal app since my iPhone4 to explain to my patients what is going on in their body. I literally use these two apps every day and have gotten more complements from patients on their greater understanding of their condition due to these. I have been stressing the last two days without it due to the IOS update. Thank you for getting this out. It is my life line at work!!!
  • Not supported by iOS update!!!

    By Schard
    I updated my iPhone and now can’t use this app. PLEASE UPDATE THE APP TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE CURRENT iOS VERSION!!!
  • Incompatible with iOS 11

    By foxyladynastya
    Purchased the app just to find out that it is not compatible with the up-to-date iOS. A total waste of money... Folks, we need an update! Your app is being recommended for those who are taking a personal trainer certification course...
  • Not user friendly

    By Edyska
    Not a fan of this app, bought it to help with studying but it's not user friendly, the functions aren't useful and it's a bit confusing. Wouldn't recommend.
  • Not useful

    By Docj
    Just like the therapist said, this app is not convenient to use for your clients. Yes it has all the muscles but trying to select them is a real pain you have to pin things to get to the muscle description. Anytime you do anything your viewpoint is covered by A sliding box. Some of the other apps at this company makes really convenient useful and easy this is the primary complaint that most people have I would highly recommend their other one which is muscle 2.
  • Terrible

    By kfigueroa1
    As quickly as I downloaded it, I removed it that much quicker. This app was a waste of money and space on my phone. I thought you would be able to tap on a muscle and it would give you the name of that muscle. No. You have to search for each "section" such as neck, head, etc through a list. In addition the resolution is terrible. This is not what I wanted and I want my money back.
  • Very unintuitive

    By Halfcastefella
    Other apps allow you to tap a muscle and select it and give you the info, and you can still manipulate it. This one has pins, and the pins go away as soon as you try to rotate the model at al which is VERY Annoying!!!!
  • Amazing

    By Mpdkingofpt Instagram
    I am a nursing student and Was going to school for pt It's also good for people who want to work out and Know what muscles they are working. It gives you a 3-D representation of the muscles. It also illustrates the insertion points , origin points and the actions and nerves Innervation and artery supply to each muscle.
  • Not

    By Integrative Therapist
    I have used the Essential Anatomy app on my iPad for about a year and absolutely love the interface and ease of use. This app is not the same by any means. There is no freedom of movement, you cannot select muscle groups and you can't select individual muscles unless going through the pin menu. Also the quality of the image isn't as good. I understand it's not going to be as complete as the anatomy app but come on. I wanted this app to show my clients quickly what we are focusing on and it takes me longer to pull up the structures than to explain it. I'm asking for a refund and just getting Essential Anatomy 5 and adding on the muscles package. I really wish the interface was consistent throughout all of the apps. I would buy them all if that where the case.
