Clever functionality found within the app allows the user to strip away layers of muscle via the ‘scalpel’ tool. This app provides users with the ability to turn on/off systems without the need to deselect individual structures or muddle through a multitude of predefined regional tabs, like other apps.

Essential Anatomy 3 is designed with the user in mind - the body itself becomes the interface.

    Love the work you do. Tried them all. Best anatomy app on android. Navigation is the killer feature. Can you make it function in landscape mode so that it can fill my 4k tv screen. Please bring all of your apps to android. I will not switch platforms to use your other apps (Complete anatomy, essential Anthony 5). Android has the largest user base of all operating systems. Your app very is fairly priced. I believe you are missing an opportunity and others will step in to fill the gap. I am using it on asus zenpad 3s 10. Complete anatomy is is the best thing I have ever seen and I have been for 20 years. Thanks Full Review

    Had to pay twice Had the app downloaded on Windows 8 and it worked great. The content was really useful, best I've used. But after a few months the app stopped working completely and wouldn't open. Uninstalled and installed again and it worked, but only for a few days. Other apps on my PC worked no problem. So I have to buy it again on android. Wasn't an issue from microsofts side. Not really good that you pay for something only to have it taken away from you. Full Review

    running on old galaxy S2 SII , bit slow but still ok. I only use skeletal and muscle for my study and this app is really helpful. 3D views to rotate and tilt to get every view I want. I had 3D4 muscle pro on my even older iphone 3GS but there were only few zoom factors, like shoulder or arm - this app can zoom continuously - I like that ! also a button to listen how it is pronounced, very useful for not native English speakers. many more to discover.

    Great, but doesn't worth buying. Absolutely amazing app, almost no bugs, working perfectly, great moving in 3D environment. But common guys, we already payed once for the app, if you want access to detailed part of each section, u have to pay again. for example it shows a bone , but if you wanna check hiatuses, foramens, expressions and... You have to pay again. At least make the these parts cheaper so more people will buy it + emails for discount were only for Apple users, not a single discount for Android so far. Full Review

    Dominique Chu Published date: January 22, 2018

    It's a great buy. The 3D effect on all the systems is terrific! I've used this since I was in my freshman year in nursing, I'm now a junior. And I got to say, it's anatomical parts, names, and other information are on point. I use this app side by side with my anatomy text book so I've cross-checked most of the info. I simply love it. It makes me fall in love with the subject more. Kudos!!! Full Review

    Good app. Has helped me in my anatomy class. It needs to be updated to version 5 though. We are very behind the iOS version which is a shame. I hope you guys can update soon. I don't think its fair that it is the same price as the iOS version when we are using an outdated version. Other than that, keep up the good work. Full Review

    Good When are we getting essential anatomy 5? I emailed you guys last year and you said it would be out asap. I personally need it most right now, before my entrance exam for uni. Please keep working!! Full Review

    Ron D Published date: February 2, 2017

    This app is very well done and versatile, controlling rotation and movement is easy once you get the hang of it. My only problem is, each time I zoom in, my right tibia disappears. It's difficult seeing relationships when following the vascular and neurological systems. Full Review

    Jadyn Sullivan Published date: November 11, 2015

    Great for Uni Awesome app for anatomy at Uni, I regulalry use it (supplementing for some of my text books). Gives all the information I need (muscles, nerves, blood supply etc) albeit very glitchy at times. Nevertheless, would certainly recommend. Also, is 5 to be released on Android? :/ Full Review

    Robin Corbett Published date: September 3, 2017

    Buy it! A fantastic learning tool for anatomy. Almost no mistakes! A couple of the muscle fibre directions are inaccurate, (one of the of the abdominal muscle layers and somewhere in the back), and the course of one of the tendons from the forearm into the hand is also slightly out... Love your work! Full Review

    Please please pleaseeeeeeee Download this if your are taking any AnP class, I have had it only 3 minutes but it's making a difference already. The 11 dollars is worth it just for this app alone. Just deleted all my other AnP apps and there is about 10 other ones. THIS REPLACES THEM ALL! Full Review

    Published date: March 25, 2017

    It's generally a good app but compared to the version from the app store it's just missing so much. It's not quite as detailed as I had hoped and I've been waiting for an update to make it a little bit more like the appstore version for over two years now but I doubt they're still making one. Really disappointed for the price. Full Review

    andrew emig Published date: February 5, 2015

    Room for improvement Pros: Graphics are great. Can easily move from anterior/posterior/lateral/medial views. Can isolate certain items to look at individually. Cons: quizes are extremely repetitive. Cannot select excatly what you wish to be quizzed on. Muscle orgin/ insertions are difficult to learn with this app. Full Review

    Tony Bullock Published date: May 25, 2015

    Excellent, but could be better! This is a really detailed, informative and excellent app. But it misses out on a couple of things. Where is the reproductive system? And it should allow landscape viewing on tablets, where it could make use of the extra space for customisable windows or tools! Full Review

    Ashley Salazar Published date: December 25, 2016

    Real nice app but... Nice app! definitely use it as a second source of reference when I study, but I really wish y'all would make essential anatomy 5 for android and not just for iPhone... other then that it's good. Full Review

    Update? There's a big difference between this one and the apple version! If I knew of this before hand, I would of waited to purchase it. I've been waiting for an update to catch up to the other version. This is the most money I have spent on an app but I'm disappointed considering the difference in the two platforms. Full Review

    Melanie Okita Published date: October 19, 2017

    It's OK for what you can get out of it in the Version 3 for Samsung. Honestly for the first time in my life I am wishing I had an Apple phone so that I could use the "pin" option. In a newer version I would also recommend the detailed parts of the skull, long bone, etc. since I am tested over all the foramens, canals, etc. *There's also a glitch in the Quiz - about halfway through it wouldn't let me select an answer.

    Essential Anatomy 3 Won't install (Note 3 running Lollypop): Says "waiting for network". I do NOT want to use WiFi (currently out of range), & over my cellphone provider is FREE, & I KNOW this 'network' is open otherwise I wouldn't be able to post this comment!!! Also, if it won't install, how the HELL can I uninstall it to trigger a refund?!? Full Review

    Yekaterina Afonina Published date: December 14, 2014

    Is refund an option? I did not realize that there would be such a big difference between the 4th and 3rd editions. I downloaded this app by recommendation of an iPad user. I would like a refund, and once the 4th version becomes available for my tablet, I will reinvest again. Full Review

    Forced Portrait Mode Fantastic App! Only complaint is that there is no option for me to change into landscape mode on my Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. Also, crashes almost every time the home button is pressed when trying to exit the app causing my tablet to restart. Full Review

    Quiz is very buggy When I am attempting to use the quiz, it becomes unresponsive to any button, even the quit button. This happens still with the Internet on/off and shutting down the app from app manager. This is very disappointing. Otherwise this app is very good. Full Review

    Ali Zharylgapov Published date: December 3, 2014

    It's a very good app but for that money you could have done it better. I mean when you touch the screen to zoom, the camera flies away and sometimes it just so annoying and disturbing. Please fix it and I'll give it 5 and recommend to everyone. Full Review

    Lori Miller Published date: February 13, 2016

    Best anatomy app I am not in med school but downloaded this app to gain a better understanding of my own health care and fitness/workouts. I've tried (and subsequently uninstalled) several other anatomy apps and this is by far THE BEST. Easy to add or subtract layers of anatomical systems, zoom in and view from every angle, excellent graphics. I'm not sure what the negative reviews are about and if there are "better" apps on the market I suspect they are very pricey (e.g. one required payment for each feature added.) Full Review

    Kristin Dawson Published date: January 17, 2017

    I haven't even used this app yet but am already disliking it. I did the trial period and liked the app so I purchased it. Imagine my delight when I found out they charged me twice! $26 for this app? Not impressed. Full Review

    Michael Robinson Published date: September 3, 2017

    Jonathan Franzen Published date: July 17, 2016

    Flawless I use this app a lot at work. Being a personal trainer this app is extremely useful in showing my clients where their muscles are & what they do. App works perfect. Learning curve can be tough at first, but easy after you get the hang of it. Having a detailed map of the body is cool and useful, down to the bones insertions, arteries, nerves and ligaments. A must have for any person that works with the human body, i.e. PT, PTA, Personal trainer, chiropractor, nurse, doctor or even students in kinesiology. Full Review

    SUDIP KANDAR Published date: June 22, 2017

    So many vital structures are skipped! App is good but incomplete!!! Please update and add the skipped system and structures such as nasal cavity, ear, extra ocular muscles, reproductive system, cranial nerves etc etc. If I want to clarify the main branches of abdominal aorta, it's going impossible hiding the structures one bye one in arterial system!! So need some special focus on special structures more ! Full Review

    Dr. Leo Kelso Published date: May 14, 2015

    Fabulous product! Interactive which makes it fun to memorize. This is a great app. Initially was not working properly and regretfully so I needed to uninstall the app. I think it might very well of been something to do with the wrong settings in the properties menu or something to do with the rebooting of the mobile device? I should tell you that it was suggested by a colleague of mine; to reboot the device and see if that sort of helps to remedy the issue or update the device and then perhaps try reinstalling it. So I went ahead and repurchased of the 'EA3; while also following some of the useful advice. I turned it off and restarted it. It started up and without a hitch now it is working properly on my device! I've read reviews from others who purchased this product and said it pretty much doesn't appear to be working or loading problems with the app (a minor nuisance but this might be so easily remedied, as suggested). Some people may say it does not have a lot of detail. But I thought the annotations were pretty detailed. Being that anatomy consist of being a visual learner, utilizing the intuitive navigational of the interface has been structured in a concise, easy-to-view, and learner-friendly format. Full Review

    Amazing app backed by excellent tech support team! The graphics are truly amazing. You can rotate and tilt the image any way you wish, zoom in and out, isolate any area. Descriptions are informative and precise. The whole thing is backed by a tech support personnel that is helpful and corteous (yes, I did need help with some issues, possibly due to my phone's quirks rather than the app flaws, and the response I received was both prompt and helpful).
