The U.S. Army knows how to train their personnel to survive. Their field manual is the most authoritative guide on survival. This app provides a complete 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.

The Army Survival app is the U.S. Army Field Manual 21-76, titled “Survival.” We've added all new high resolution images for plants, animals and insects to make this manual even more useful.

Army Survival includes information on:

* Psychology of survival
* Basic survival medicine
* Shelters
* Water procurement
* Edible and medicinal plants
* Poisonous plants
* Dangerous animals, snakes, lizards, fish, insects and arachnids
* Field weapons, tools and equipment
* Desert survival

* Cold weather survival
* Sea survival

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.

Lots of great information, works well on an iPod Touch

Well first of all, you should know that U.S. Army Field Manual 21-76 is widely available for free on the web, so if you have a pdf reader or similar app already installed on your device, you can import the files and save yourself $2. Now, that said, $2 is a small price to pay for all the great information here, presented in an easy to use format. You can skip ahead, browsing by chapter/appendix, or use the search function which provides a text-wide keyword search to help you find exactly what you're looking for. You can also bookmark pages for quick reference.
The current version of this app, 1.0, does not rotate to landscape mode, and some of the text and tables are in a slightly slow resolution (but still readable). The developer is very quick to respond to support requests and suggestions, and says they plan to implement landscape mode and try to improve resolution in future updates.
Best of all, this all stores locally and works offline. This will be a great companion should you find yourself stranded on a deserted island (providing the island comes equipped with a battery-charging USB port).
