For a 2 minute overview of how this app works - please visit:   Skeleton System Pro III contains hundreds of improvements - here are a few: • 360 horizontal degree rotation of any body part - all easily controlled with your mouse. • Rotate vertically for inferior and superior views (where applicable) - with the swipe of your mouse. • 94 animations of every movement of each articulation (e.g. flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, etc.). • 2 types of Quiz, Drag and Drop and Multi-choice. • 596 audio pronunciations, for every label. • Draw on any screen image and then share it through email, Facebook or Twitter. • Color mapping of the skull and pelvis bones. OTHER NEW FEATURES: • Full Screen Mode: One click and the app fills the screen. • Interface: Completely rebuilt to allow for simple navigation. • Graphical Hints: On screen hints that can be turned on or off, for a complete understanding of all the app's features. • Mix layers: Make one layer semitransparent to compare against another layer. • Public Notes: Post or browse through shared public notes. OTHER FEATURES: • Double-click to Zoom: Zoom in to and identify any region, bone, skeletal area or ligament by double-clicking on the screen. • Super Zoom and Pan: When zoomed in to an area, you can double-click again for a super zoom. To move the image, just press and hold your right-click button. • Use your mouse to Cut: Slice skeletal areas for a coronal, sagittal or transverse cut view (where applicable) - use hints to learn how. • Press the Scalpel: To add or remove up to 4 layers of connective tissue. • Pins appear in both English and Latin. • Double-click again for additional Zooming: Useful when there are multiple pins. • Customize Pins: Add your own pins and notes or add notes to existing pins. • Customize the App: Using the settings function the user can choose which pins appear within the app - customize to different levels, i.e. high school, nurses etc. Skeleton System Pro III - includes the most in depth 3D skeleton ever developed, the ability to rotate, cut and get superior/inferior views all with simple movements of the mouse. This app’s primary use is as a learning tool but can also be used as a fast and innovative reference tool by utilizing the index function which allows the user to select an item and the app will automatically zoom in and identify it. Additionally, this app is ideal for physicians, educators or professionals, allowing them to visually show detailed areas of the skeletal system to their patients or students - helping to educate or explain conditions, ailments and injuries.



  • Worth it...

    By Undecided?
    Everytime i think im done with the skeletal system it haunts me. I have a human atlas; however, the skeletal system app allows me to see all features of the bones which is required for med school, pre-med, etc. Im very glad i got this, worth every penny. If you are planning to go the medicinal route, you wont regret getting this.
  • Limited rotation, clunky interaction

    By NikLinna
    This appears to be a hasty port of an iOS app. There are basically no menu commands, and all the commands are on the main or auxiliary window as buttons and such. It only allows viewing from the side, or above/below. In side view, you can rotate the skeleton, but it seems to just start spinning most of the time rather than going to where I want it. In above/below views, there is no rotation. Zooming involves double-clicking or right double-clicking instead of using familiar pinch gestures or keyboard shortcuts.
  • Just OK

    This has such potential. Running a New MacPro 2013, 6-Core 64GB RAM. When I click on a selection I get a “loading” message. Huh? Really? It’s only on for a few seconds, but how the heck is it “loading" on my machine? Nothing should be loading. It just be instant! This app needs some fine tuning. Looking forward to some updates.
  • Great app, but I would suggest improvements

    By Alex01tib
    This app needs to have some of the features of the other apps, like the ability to hide/fade/isolate certain bones. The interface needs to be more like the essential anatomy app, where you can zoom in on any section you want, not just the predetermined areas. Also, There needs to be a drastic improvement on certain bones/areas such as the ribs, there is next to no information for them. You can look at one groove for all the ribs at a poor angle with other stuff in the way. Please work on this.
  • Ribs?

    By Keilabell
    I paid good money for this app because it seemed to do everything I needed it to. Then I realize you cannot look at individual ribs?
  • improvement?

    By Cheyguy69
    The pins are the biggest concern for me. I wish they were more specific when they are talking about an entire area. Almost a 5/5, I think $14.99 is a little too expenisve. I purchased the muscle system too and I wish there was a way to test on the outer mucle layers only.
  • If you have a mac this is a complete waste of your money

    By Hcogpnpbuduwfcbko
    Do not buy this program if you have a mac it is terrible.
  • Works but needs improvement.

    By DannyBoardin
    Probably the best skeletal app available, but the quiz really needs to be fixed, half the time you can't tell where the pins are pointing to, and the angles that are used for the quiz make me want to scream sometimes….just awful. Good app but with some improvements could be GREAT.
  • Not worth the money

    By ebagum
    I downloaded this program onto a 17 inch Mcbook Pro, only to find that the application only filled a quarter of the screen and could not be enlarged. I suspect that they have ported this from the iPad version and couldn't be bothered to adapt it to the Mac screen. I consider this dishonest and am actively seeking a way to get my money back.
  • It's awesome

    By Abudyman
    There is nothing that these guys left out. It's so comprehensive and so interesting. Definitely recommend it
