Brain Tutor 3D

If you’re a pre-med or anatomy major, it’s helpful for your studies to dissect a human brain – but getting your hands on one isn’t always easy. With Brain Tutor 3D, you can explore 3D models of the head and brain, slice the brain along three axles, learn where brain structures are located and more.

gFlash+ Flaschards & Tests

Notecards are so old fashioned; no to mention, they’re torn up, coffee-stained and ink-smudged. Go virtual with your flashcards and never lose or destroy them. gFlash allows you to create and edit your own cards, integrate your cards onto a Google spreadsheet and download cards from the gWhiz catalog.

This app is available on iPhone, iTouch, iPad, Android and Kindle. Learn more.
