Very disappointed with this app, when I open it I am immediately taken to the essentials section and I can't access the rest of the content! This would not be good for someone relying on this manual in a survival situation. I'm just going to buy a good old fashioned book copy for the bugout bag and I recommend everyone interested in this app to do the same! To sum it up this app SUCKS and is a complete WASTE of money and will fail you when you NEED IT MOST in an emergency survival situation!

I bought this. It worked. I had to unload it to save space once. Now it won't reinstall. I contacted Google support. They tried everything they had. Nothing worked. I contacted the developers. They had me redo everything Google had me do. No results. They said it was a Google problem. They recently have put a large set of more expensive manuals on the market that seem to cover the same subjects. Hmmmmm...
