Here's what iTunes Store and Google Play customers say about the SecondLookTM MSK Anatomy apps:

"Prior to finding this app, I was disappointed with any collection of anatomy images I could find. Any images I could find online were messy and impossible to discern the details of different structures. In this app, everything is clear and well-marked. Well worth the download!"

"This app reviews the essentials every nursing, medical and kinesiology student should know about the human MSK system. Easy to use and efficient, it not just tests fact knowledge, but a real understanding of the material."

"A great on-the-go App for students to wrap up and know their unknowns before the exam. And a great tool for instructors to set up a practical anatomy examination."
