Ratings and Reviews
A Little Clumsy But Very Interesting
The apps controls are a bit clumsy, and it’s hard to view any system without interference from the side panel and there not being enough space to swipe the ‘switch’ all the way back and forth to change internal and external views.
I feel like you could fully enjoy this app with an iPad instead of a phone.
There’s just not enough space to explore everything without accidentally knocking over labels and things. It’s certainly better suited for kids than adults as it does not provide any readable content on each system or part- but if you’ve taken anatomy before (even just in high school) then it can be a nice reminder of our basic functions through basic observation.
It’s cute and entertaining but the clumsiness of the controls and the lack of info provided confuses me- it doesn’t provide explanation for things- it seems the goal is to learn by watching the simple mechanics of each system- which can be confusing at times and made me want to look up how exactly something worked. If you’re looking to spark curiosity in a child this is a great app- if you’re looking for an app to actually learn about the human body and it’s functions then I’d turn to the internet instead.

Hi & thank you so much for the review! We're sorry to hear that you were having trouble with the app's controls. We'd love to hear more about what you were experiencing so that we can improve the app. Please email us at email@example.com 🙌 We've also created a handbook to go along with the app that explains a lot of the interactions and their functions. You can find the handbook in the parent dashboard of the app or here: https://tinybop.com/assets/handbooks/the-human-body/Tinybop-EL1-Human-Body-Handbook-EN.pdf.
How to restore an in-app purchase?
I mean, I’m sorry if I sound dumb if you’re seeing the name of who is writing this, but, I have no clue how I did it the first time around.
Also, woah, the memories are kicking in. The memories like spilling my chocolate milk on my tablet and having the nervous system go nuts. The memories like having a dream about The Human Body By Tinybop brand gummies. The memories like having another dream about a sequel to it. It didn’t seem to offer anything interesting since when the dream ended, it was just me feeding the person. Also, yes, these are somehow real, I recall these because of just thinking about them.
Anyways, great app, and even though I’m slightly blinded by nostalgia, holy heck, I loved this app. Hopefully I get to see the app focused on animals do even better than this if I decide to download it.
Wonderful but needs an update
I love this app. I am young yet I have my future planned as a nurse when I get older. I feel as though getting a head start is great and this is a great way to do that. However while graphics and video is great one thing bugs me… I switched on labels and while I found it helpful it did not show a few KEY things. Like how I had no clue what was the blue and red in the lungs. I got my mother (also nurse) to help me finally and then it made sense but I feel like she should not have to explain your app.
Not implying that you should add more labels, you got enough of those, but possibly a voice option explaining whatever what the user clicks on and what it does. Also maybe add more on the mouth like more gum info. Possibly also make a little side thing on the side that tells children that the tooth on the app with the food is sped up. Currently it looks like you have to brush your teeth after you eat or drink anything or else your teeth will rot out. I was scared at first I was killing my teeth.

You're in luck. We're working on a huge update to The Human Body which will be out in a month or two. It will include more expensive labels, a voice option, and hundreds of other improvements big and small. It will be free to all paid users. Good luck on your future career in medicine!
If you download the latest update you'll should be pleased to see we now have labels! Lots of other small improvements as well.
