Pros and cons of Essential Anatomy 5 app for iPhone and iPad

Essential Anatomy 5 app good for

Superbe application pour comprendre notre anatomie... The best ever :D
Good app. Excited to see what else they come up with to make it even more detailed.
This app is one of the best medical apps out there. Many amazing features that seem to be endless. A must have for anyone interested in the field of medicine!
Excellent app. Very useful to teach medical students. Suggestions: - Adding a "slice" function would definatly benefit radiology students and others who use imaging techniques like echography. - Adding the possibility to add multiple "pins" with the notes showing would be nice. - Adding a "pin" that represents a needle with the possibility to move it at the appropriate angle.
But needs more about one architecture... aka where the spine is on the scapula and the fossa of other bones etc.
Suggestion: I would love to see muscle attachments included in colour on the skeleton.

Some bad moments

Pricey app and not even transferable to mac devices. Need to purchase new app to gain access.
Do not buy this app but instead buy Complete Anatomy. Its a better app from the same developer at a comparable price. Its actually kinda of crummy that they offer both apps at the prices they set.
Good for general anatomy, but certainly not qualified as an all inclusive anatomy app. I was bought by the hype of the reviews, but for a PA school student this app fell short very quickly when I tried to use as a reference multiple times.
However, the menu does not work correctly - buttons on both sides do not react - on the new iPhone 6s (iOS 9.0-9.0.2) I hope it is soon fixed. A new download of the app had no effect on the bug.

Usually Essential Anatomy 5 iOS app used & searched for

3d anatomy, anatomy, atlas, muscle anatomy, anatomy muscles, anatomy 3d, cardiovascular, and other. So, download free Essential Anatomy 5 .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
