The SecondLookTM mobile applications are self-review tools, mainly for college- and professional school-level students. They provide a series of images with questions and answers for users to test their knowledge and skill level before taking tests and examinations. SecondLookTM apps covering several basic biomedical subjects are currently available or are in preparation. All SecondLookTM applications are compatible with iPads and iPhones and with Android devices. See below for a list of SecondLookTM mobile applications that can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes Store and from the Google Play Store.
The original SecondLookTM Histology iPad application features actual microanatomy images and professionally drawn illustrations and has been downloaded more than 11,000 times in 115 countries. In 2013 it earned Dr. Hortsch the University of Michigan Provost's Teaching Innovation Prize.
New versions for all SecondLook™ mobile review applications are currently being published at the iTunes and the Google Play stores. Besides some content updates, these apps have a new, user-friendly interface. In addition, it is now possible to combine multiple sets into a custom-tailored review session of the user’s choice.
For Android users a new “Histology Complete - SecondLook™” app is now available at the Google Play store.
The old free "Histology-Connective Tissue" app will be discontinued and a new free of charge “Histology Lite - SecondLook™” app will be offered instead. This Histology Lite app provides a more comprehensive overview of all the subjects covered in the “Histology Complete - SecondLook™” app.
All customers, who downloaded or purchased a SecondLook™ app previously, will receive free automatic updates. Please note that no automatic upgrades will be offered for any version 1 SecondLook™ Histology iPad app or for the free Histology-Connective Tissue app.
We hope you will enjoy these SecondLook™ enhancements. Email us with comments and suggestions for further improvements and please consider leaving a review at the app store websites. Thank you.
