Great app!


I love the organization, the photos, and the overall user friendliness. This is really well made and a fantastic tool for any and every soldier, especially Infantry. One small tweak (but I bet not easy) for this to be an even more unbelievably great tool would be hyperlinks of definitions for all acronyms/abbreviations. Or someway to have a "previous page" button for when I search and go to the glossary, I can hit one button to go right back to where I was. Necessary? Probably not but that would really put this way over the top. 👍😁



This APP met every criteria that I was looking for. Full of knowledge and more.

Great Layout

No doubt if you are buying this Handbook, you probably already have your pocket one close by. The odds are you won't buy this app to read the whole Handbook, because that's what the pocket one is for. But it's a great quick reference to have if you need a refresher. Coupled with the Knot Time app, my iPhone feels complete. I give it 4 stars even though you can sync a free Adobe version, because the layout and effects make it more of a pleasure to reference through. Good work. Now if you could create the iBook version to be like a virtual SH 21-76, then I'd be willing to give 5 stars and more $. But still a good app.
