Survival Pocket Ref
By Double Dog Studios
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Survival Pocket Reference is based entirely on the keyword SURVIVAL. The U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force military forces know about survival. Their field manuals are the most authoritative guides on survival. This app provides a quick reference guide on basic survival, evasion, first aid and recovery information. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, this app may be essential to your survival.
With over 500 pages, the Survival Pocket Reference is the exact information from the Department of Defense publication titled Survival, Evasion and Recovery. When a Department of Defense publications states: “ Recommend inclusion of this manual in the aviator’s survival vest.” You know the content is going to be important and relevant.
Survival Pocket Reference will show you:
* First aid techniques
* Create shelters in hot and cold climates
* Navigating by compass and stars
* Build a fire
* Find food and water
* Surviving nuclear, chemical or biological attacks
* Evasion tactics
* Edible and medicinal plants
* Survival calculators
* And much more
As a lover of the outdoors you may be anywhere in the world. It may be a temperate, tropical, arctic, or sub arctic region. You expect to have all your personal equipment and or other members of your group with you wherever you go. There is, however, no guarantee that’s how your adventure will go. You could find yourself alone in a remote area— with little or no personal gear. This app provides information and describes basic techniques to enable you to survive and return alive should you find yourself in such a situation.

Great app! But how many of these are the same?
This is a great app. But my main complaint is that this developer has so many versions of this app for sale on the App Store and it has confused me since one app says it is not related to the other, but when purchased the content was the same. I also purchased Survival Skills and that app is basically the same as this one. I suspect the army survival for iPad/iPhone is the same as well. So be careful when purchasing from this developer, since you may already have what you are buying.
This is a fantastic app. It covers a lot of material on worldwide survival. The pictures of the edible and medicinal plants are excellent.
I own the book that this book is based on but the app has tools, calculators etc. that one can use. Suffice it to say that this app is on the very top of the list as far as survival apps are concerned.
Lots of information here. While some is more applicable to combat situations than "normal" operations, it is all good to know. Techniques are more valid than what I see in some outdoors magazine publications. Some of those seem poorly thought out and obviously were never field tested.
