Essential Skeleton - App Review



The clue is very much in the name.

There is a video tour; it's a good idea to take the three and a half minutes to look at the tutorial.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The App starts up with a skeleton, which you can move and zoom as required (even easier if you watched the video).

Touching a part will bring up information thereon, including a nifty speaker which will give you the correct pronunciation (albeit with an American accent).

From your selected item you can choose:

Hide/Fade - which will hide/fade just the selected item
Hide/Fade others - which will hide/fade everything except the selected item

The so-called bread crumb trail shows you the parent items. For example choose a foot part and be informed that it is part of ankle & foot, which in turn is part of the lower limb.

there are some really great details, such as the 'left handed configuration' which puts the tools on the right-hand side of the screen.

Apart from giving you detailed information, the App can also quiz you (and you select the appropriate areas), and this in turn can be either multiple choice or a drag and drop test.

Cost
The App is absolutely free.

Indispensability
If you need to study the human skeleton, this is a great way to do it.

Dependability
Faultless.

Security
There is the ability to share via Facebook and Twitter apart from that, the downloaded App is standalone.

ACIDS Test Rating:

For osteologists everywhere.
