Additionally, this app is ideal for physicians, educators or professionals in helping to locate a muscle and / or explain its relevance for certain conditions, ailments and injuries.



  • What is Wrong???

    By Dilsadapunjabi
    Well I thought this app was ok… Was not lovable but likable. But now it wont show the right placements of the muscles. All the images are pixalated and won't genarate right. I have the latest macbook pro with 8GB of ram. 2.6GHz Intel Core i7 Processor. Yet it's not working????
  • Great Foundation

    If you need to learn the basic anatomy, this app is very helpful. As a 2nd year medical student, I wish I had used this during anatomy. But looking forward, this app could really benefit from disease correlations. But overall great layer removals in the animations to show you which muscles are tucked under what.
  • Grat App

    By exercise physiology student
    Overall this a great app. It would be perfect if you could pick what muscles you want to be quizzed on instead of just by section. Also when using the index the view point for where the pin is located isnt very good.
  • Great App

    If you are wondering if it is worth the money, it is.
  • Awesome app!

    I'm a Stanford Med student, and all of our classmates use this app for reviewing anatomy. It's really great for quizzing yourself, and I love the layers function. My only wish would be to have more views for pinning.
  • Very helpful for medical students

    I am a first year medical student and bought this app to help with gross anatomy. It's fantastic! I love the media videos, pronunciations, and ability to remove and add layers easily. Unlike many other programs, it's also extremely user-friendly. I highly recommend!

    Levator palpebrae superior is missing at a quick glimpse
  • Pretty Cool!

    By Logan Fulk
    Just bought this, pretty neat so far. Wish use with the magic mouse was a little more fluid. However I can see how that might be a bit touchy. Also, just looking around real quick, the video of medial rotaion of the knee under semitendinosus says anterior view, definetly a dorsal/posterior view. haha Thanks for the cool app!

    This app would definitely get 5/5 stars if now for the issue with the public notes. Whenever I try to connect, a pop up window appears telling me to connect to the internet when I am already connected and using it flawlessly.
