X-Anatomy Version History

Version 2.0: Submitted to Apple 23 Mar 2013

🔹New: X-Anatomy is now a universal app optimized for both iPad and iPhone/iPod touch. We know that many of you have already been using X-Anatomy on your iPad, so this update is especially for you. Medical students and others from around the world have asked us to make sure X-Anatomy works with the original iPad 1, and we have done extensive testing to make sure that it does. And remember, any extra modules that you purchased for your iPhone can be activated on the iPad for no additional charge, and vice-versa.


🔹Improved intuitive controls: For all iPad/iPhone/iPod touch customers, the user interface to scroll through the body has been updated to greatly simplify your understanding of where you are and how you are moving through the body. You just have to try it!

🔹Fixed - We are releasing a new update sooner than planned to repair a major bug. Many customers were reporting that X-Anatomy was crashing while they were trying to contact support or submit feedback using the in-app support features. Hopefully this issue has been isolated and fixed. Thanks to Davphys, Dan, & Eleuterio for reporting and testing this issue, and thanks to Claire & Austin at Uservoice for helping to isolate the problem. If you are still experiencing problems using these features, please contact us through the support page.
