Years ago, Irish families ate lamb’s heart on a regular basis (as well as cow’s tongue, kidney, liver and a host of other goodies). Today such a notion seems preposterous. Kids, therefore, have no idea what a heart actually looks like. For them – and for medical students, Irish-based developer eMedia has come up with a superb iPhone app called Pocket Heart.
In a very short time, you’ll be an expert at distinguishing your aortas from your papillary muscles. The app lets you explore the human heart in 3D and explains in impressive detail what each part does and its function in the overall circulatory system. A really useful, well-laid-out app.
