Great when it works.

4 stars because when it works it’s the absolute best app. But I wanted to take 1 or 2 stars off because it will stop working every single time I update my phone so when I really need it I can’t use it. But when it does work it gives great videos on how to locate and know your on a muscle using actions, BLMs, and other surrounding muscles. I used it throughout school and even now as a professional massage therapist. It also does muscle overlays so you can see what the muscle would look like under the skin there. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app (when it works).

Highly useful app for learning muscle and bone anatomy.

I first purchased this app back in 2012 when I started massage school, and I still find it useful to this day. This app is great for studying and learning the bones and muscles, and it is great for refreshing your memory too. It has a fun feature where it tells you to locate the bone or muscle and you have to click on it and get it right. When looking at individual muscles, you can swipe the screen and it "flips" the card and on the back it says the origin, insertion, action, innervation, and location. I use it regularly so I don't forget my anatomy, and sometimes I use it as a visual reference for my clients so they can see what muscles I am talking about too. This app has never really glitched on me, and I have been using it on my iPhones and iPads over the years. This app is excellent for helping one study for the Mblex exam too.

I chose to buy the bundle rather than use the flash cards for my kinesiology class. This app not only offers everything the flash cards do but they are conveniently waiting in your phone. Each section references the page number of the accompanying book and workbook so you can see it on paper and look at the surrounding chapter. This app is worth any amount of money it cost... just the cost savings in flash cards alone has saved me double! The only thing I would ask the developer to add to future versions is audio pronunciation in the anatomy map app because the flash cards have points you to tap to name the structure it it on and it would help to have an option to have the name sounded out because some of them are a little hard to say....
