  5. Please check out Virtual human Body from QA International for this story. QA International (QAI) http://www.qa-international.com/ has announced that its Virtual Human Body App (available on iPad since last December) has been optimized for viewing on iPhone and iPod touch, including support for the new 4″ Retina display on iPhone 5. The application allows you to explore the human anatomy from head to toe and from skin to bones with a lifelike 3D human model combined with an anatomical dictionary. Whether you’re a student, parent, teacher, healthcare professional or simply curious, the Virtual Human Body invites users to explore and learn about the mechanics at play within the human body. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/virtual-human-body/id470890348?mt=8
