Apple has shortlisted an Irish-developed app as one of the 16 most innovative apps and games for 2016.
Designed by the Dublin-based 3D4Medical, Complete Anatomy, beat off competition from two million other apps that were published in Apple’s AppStore this year.
The app provides learning anatomy or physiology a 3D view of the body, layer by layer. It allows the user to zoom, rotate, cut through structures and see behind layers. Users can record the content for educational purposes and share it via the cloud.
Apple’s Editorial Team picked up ‘App Store Best of 2016’.
The app received the Apple Design Award for its technical excellence and outstanding design and innovation last year, and was also featured on stage by Apple during a high profile iPad product launch. It has reached the top of the App Store medical charts in 148 countries, and the overall charts in the online shop in 52 states.
At the start of this year, 3D4Medical announced it was hiring 70 new staff as it aimed to enhance its product development and grow sales overseas.
