Not worth the money - I downloaded this program onto a 17 inch Mcbook Pro, only to find that the application only filled a quarter of the screen and could not be enlarged. I suspect that they have ported this from the iPad version and couldn't be bothered to adapt it to the Mac screen. I consider this dishonest and am actively seeking a way to get my money back.

Review by NikLinna

Limited rotation, clunky interaction - This appears to be a hasty port of an iOS app. There are basically no menu commands, and all the commands are on the main or auxiliary window as buttons and such. It only allows viewing from the side, or above/below. In side view, you can rotate the skeleton, but it seems to just start spinning most of the time rather than going to where I want it. In above/below views, there is no rotation. Zooming involves double-clicking or right double-clicking instead of using familiar pinch gestures or keyboard shortcuts.

Review by Undecided?

Worth it... - Everytime i think im done with the skeletal system it haunts me. I have a human atlas; however, the skeletal system app allows me to see all features of the bones which is required for med school, pre-med, etc. Im very glad i got this, worth every penny. If you are planning to go the medicinal route, you wont regret getting this.
