Pros and cons of Visual Anatomy app for iPhone and iPad

Visual Anatomy app good for

I found the app very useful as an assist to my anatomy studies. Some elements missing but still overall very useful.
But somewhat limited. Not as much rotational parts or multiple views as I thought there would be.
I have been working out at a gym with and without a trainer. I have recently used a physical therapist. This app helps me understand what and why. It helps me pronounce some of the more difficult words. Any one who works out or who has odd muscle pain or weakness can benefit from the information contained in this app.
You cant go wrong with this app! $2.99 USD is super cheap. App is very effective for becoming familiar with most all things anatomy. I am using this app to prepare me for VCU Biology 206: Basic Human Anatomy.
Great for everything. From studying to brushing up after two years!
If you are taking anatomy for the first time, this is a MUST have app in your arsenal. Im currently studying for my skeletal system practical exam and this has made it VERY easy to do so.

Some bad moments

Constantly crashes have reinstalled still crashes please fix NOW
This is a mediocre app for introduction to basic anatomy. Its better than a textbook for learning, but not as good as others apps i use. It would be ok to enhance learning for undergraduate study. Its another tool for the toolbox.
Every time I hit the info button the app crashes. All I can get from this are the details.
This app constantly goes blank (white screen) when u click on a blue arrow on the diagrams. When u touch the blue arrow for a more detailed description of the organ it goes to a description then the screen goes white. Dont waste your money on this one.
As most of popular apps, italian language isnt available. Thanks to all producters...
I am in A&P and this app was extremely fun and easy to use! Great study method!
