The human body is the most complex machine on earth and is made up of a tremendous assortment of bones, muscles and organs. To learn the various names that are given to each of these various parts of the body is the unenviable task of many an anatomy student and for them any help they can get is most welcome. This iPhone app not only helps, it makes learning fun.
This iPhone app doesn’t just cater for the students of anatomy. It will prove to be quite a useful learning tool for the younger biology student or simply those who have an interest in how the human body is put together.
It can’t be easy making an iPhone app that makes learning about the highly complicated workings of the human body both fun and educational but Anatomy Quiz Pro has managed this perfectly with a massive range of multiple choice quizzes for the three main body areas, which are skeleton, muscles and organs. Each of these sections is then split into a number of bite size pieces that allow you to slowly build up your confidence in identifying the right body parts. If, however, you want to just go straight in, you can opt for the full quiz which consists of 99 bones, 111 organs and 121 muscles.
The quizzes consist of a set of four beautifully designed 3D images of parts of the body and you will need to pick the one that matches the name of the part displayed at the top of the screen. As you work your way through the quiz you will either garner a tick for selecting the correct answer or a big red cross for a wrong answer. To help with the educational process, the correct answer is shown for any incorrect answer. Over time this allows you to slowly build up your knowledge, even if you are getting everything wrong at first.
Ease of use:
Using this app is great fun which is quite a surprise considering the topic it covers. The whole layout of this app is incredibly simple to follow and as such completely eliminates the need for any kind of instructions or tutorial before you can even get started on the more complicated elements. Even though a basic understanding of the layout of the human body is recommended it isn’t an absolute must as the 3D displays of the body parts in each question make it a great tool for learning it all from scratch.
Considering the subject this iPhone app covers you would expect it to just cater for a very specific group of users but in truth this app could be useful for anyone with even the slightest interest in how the human body is made up as well as being an excellent way to pass the time and learn a little more about your inner self. Finally, I think the price of Anatomy Quiz Pro is perfect for an app of this quality.
