Not what I thought

The title is very misleading, cause the second I saw the title, it said “for artists” yet this seems more for college students that have a test on bone names. My main problem is the possibility. I’m trying to do a album cover design, that is in desperate need a skeleton hand, but I can’t even pose it. It’s also very hard to move the ui, cause no instructions pop up once your hands touch the screen. Your just moving one place, and hoping to move somewhere else. My main problem is still the no posability aspect. Please change this.

It’s not bad but could be better

The app when it works provides a lot of useful information if you’re studying anatomy. However it’s not very easy or intuitive to toggle between different layers of muscles. And the most annoying thing is the app is crashing constantly. Please fix at least that. It doesn’t last 2 minutes without crashing.

Love the app. Very helpful in understanding anatomy. A GREAT purchase and tool for art. One request:
Can we have a better 3D view control scheme? It’s frustrating when I want to get the exact perspective I need reference for but it’s difficult to rotate the model accurately. I’m swiping in every direction and it does every angle except the one I’m aiming for.

Thank you team. Great work all in all!
