As 21st century students we are constantly finding new ways of using technology to enhance our lives, and also our education at Sheffield Hallam University. As well as Hallam’s very own SHUgo app, providing access to the Library Gateway, emails and Blackboard sites, there are a number of apps on the market for smartphones and tablets, which could be useful and inspiring to students of various disciplines. This series of articles provides information about our selection of these innovative apps, but please leave a comment below or contact us on Facebook if you have any favourites of your own.
Gray’s Anatomy (£1.99 – iPhone; Student Edition free. £1.94 on Android)
Not to be confused with the hit US medical drama, this app is based on Henry Gray’s iconic anatomy book of 1858 and is an invaluable source for any student embarking upon a career in the field of medicine, biology or sport science. Over a thousand in-depth anatomical diagrams serve both as works of art and essential reference material to learn about the finest details of the human body.
