Bones of the body for iOS

By Anders Hanell Free

Developer's Description

Bones of the body is designed to rapidly teach you the name of all the bones in the body.

At the start only three bones are quizzed, but more are added as long as you submit correct answers. This way the difficulty gradually increases based on your performance.

Quizzing has two modes; Tap to learn and Spin to learn.

In Tap to learn the name of a bone is displayed and you're supposed to tap the correct bone. Double tap to submit the reply.

In Spin to learn an image with a highlighted bone is presented. You're supposed to select the correct name from a list of bones below the image. The list always contains the correct answer as well as bones with similar names. For example, if the bone trapezium is displayed the list always contains trapezoid as well. This makes sure that you learn to distinguish between bones that are easy to mix up.

Both quiz modes are designed to be pedagogical. For example, if you make a mistake the correct answer is displayed and you're given another attempt. Incorrect replies also cause those bones to be more likely to appear again, thus focusing you're study effort where it is most needed.

Names that are used in an everyday setting (for example knee cap) and medical settings (for example patella) are included, and clearly distinguished between. In addition to English the names in Latin are included. To ensure correct terminology the names are verified using several anatomical textbooks and the Terminologia Anatomica.

An atlas is also provided in case you want to look up the name of a particular bone.
