Essential Skeleton App

Hi Everyone,
Essential Skeleton is a fully functional (free) app covering a 3D view of the anatomy of a human skeleton for iOS.  With a simple tap you can study the skeletal system, learn more about its systems, and even take a quiz.

Once you have downloaded your Essential Skeleton just tap the app icon to open.  An image of the human skeleton will appear.
Once the app is fully loaded (only a second or two) the opening page will appear with site navigation options.

To rotate the image, swipe one finger across the image on the screen.
To zoom the image, pinch two fingers across the image to reduce the image size or open two fingers across the screen to enlarge.

Let's begin:
Tap on a section of the skeleton you are interested in learning about.  Note the selected bone will turn a different color highlighting its physical structure.

At the top of the screen you will see a System's Trail.  You can also find additional information options next to selected bone or system.

Tap the speaker to hear a pronunciation, discover the spelling and/or the Latin nomenclature or tap the (i) for more information of the selection bone or system.

Tap Hide, Hide Others, Fade, or Fade Others to learn more about bone structure relationships. (Tap the options again to return to original image.)
Hide: The selected image disappears.

Hide Others:  Only the selected image remains.

Fade: The selected image fades.

Fade Others:  Only the selected image remains.
