Navigation flawed

After quite a bit of research I chose the Anatomy & Function app. While the graphics are stunning and really useful, browsing is VERY FLAWED because if you select a specific body part, then want to go back to browse area from where you came, it instead takes you to the very top so you must then scroll down to find the topic area you jumped from. A VERY SLOW PROCESS TO EXPLORE.

The SEARCH does not work on my iPad version of Anatomy & Function. Also, if you jump out of the app for a second, jumping back in requires reloading the whole app again, a 10-15 second wait.

Lastly, one more complaint is that bones and muscles are very integrated and seem lightly covered compared to everything else. I suspect many customers most common desire is to explore the their most common problems, often orthopedic.

Fantastic learning tool for all ages!

I purchased this app for myself because I love all things anatomy related and I couldn't be happier with the experience thus far. However, the biggest surprise has been how much my children are enjoying it! It is a fantastic and interactive learning tool for explaining to kids how the body works. They especially love the digestion videos that show how food is broken down and absorbed as it travels through the body and the feature that allows you to zoom in and out on all the body parts with a simple "pinch" on the image. Don't underestimate the many uses of this app - it will be a "go to" learning tool in our house for years to come. Well done!

I have purchased hundreds of medical, EKG, and cardiac apps, several of which I commonly use for my profession. This app is extremely well put together. The images and animations are visually striking. Furthermore, it details very well, the physiology of systems and topics. Few apps do this, and fewer apps do it so well.
