About this app

This is a Survival Manual which is fully working offline (which is important to survive in a case of some extreme situation)
It contains info on how to make fire, build a shelter, find food, heal and other useful content in a case of emergency.

But it does not have to be used in emergency situations only - it can be also useful for trips to the outdoors, hiking, camping, learning about nature and yourself truly. This is not only fun, but you can also train skills (make fire, build shelter, ..) you might need in a catastrophy. Some things work best with practice in a relaxed environment - then you also have time for some experiments.

Refugees are also welcome to use this app to prepare and guide them for their dangerous journey. Although I hope we as humans come to sense and stop the wars and end climate injustice so that people do not have to flee and be afraid.

Prime app. 100% needed for all phones. This app is super minimal in space and info as to not mess up your storage. It is easy to understand even if you have very little understanding of the outside whatsoever. If you're a city person, you might want to find something more through in it's explanations and ease. I have practiced several of the standard things and take my knife with me for long trips and such as well as a tarp and a few other survival essentials.

Very good and informative to have. My only issue is a few grammatical errors, some of the pictures and diagrams do not show up but instead display a box of useless text and the "hostile areas" section seems to be biased towards American troops. This is likely a situation that could impact any countries military personal and so I don't know why it needed to be specified to let the "friendly" forces know you're American.

Excellent source of information. I have a decent library of survival books for urban, rural, wilderness, and emergency situations and this "app" it still provided new information for me. It's well-written and the diagrams are very useful. Definitely something I'm going to keep on my phone as they're ready resource in the event I don't have my library with me when the information is needed. Highly recommended having this if only as an emergency resource, but it is quite enjoyable to read.
