"A highly detailed and exquisitely presented atlas of the body from Dorling Kindersley. This one is for older children but a fantastic resource for anyone with an interest in biology."

"Apps such as The Human Body show the value of iPads. It’s an exploratory experience... pick it up and explore."

The Dorling Kindersley Limited ("DK") DK Human Body app uses a third-party app service provider ("SiteCatalyst") in order to create accurate, real-time user data reports so that DK can continue to improve the app user experience. The service collects and submits anonymous aggregated data about which app features are being used most frequently as well as your mobile device UDID (unique phone Identifiers) and/or IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identities), which are also anonymised via a secure hashing protocol, to Adobe servers.
