Smartphone apps technologies offer new opportunities to improve anatomy learning. This study examined the effect of using mobile apps. This is the first study to report on the learning methods and strategies of anatomy among medical students by using mobile apps and to ascertain if a relationship exists between preferred learning styles as determined by the validated VARK questionnaire and use of mobile anatomy apps. The majority of the students who completed the VARK questionnaire were multimodal learners with kinesthetic and visual preferences. Seventy-five percent of students owned one or more mobile anatomy apps which were used. Most of these students spent less than 30 minutes per week using them.
