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.

Some useful info.. Then lacking in other areas
I (personally) find the user interface to be user friendly, however the lack of material available in the context is disappointing. I would expect a survival book to be a little more comprehensive than this. This text doesn't come close to other survival books I have read. It's a shame, because I generally like the app but an update could alleviate this.
I can't believe how much is packed into this survival guide. At first I thought it was very general not much information then I figured out you had to swipe to the right to get many many many more windows to pop up with lots and lots and lots of information glad I found this.
Wow I'm so glad I got this app! I am a beginning backpacker and heard about this app. It's a great tool to have, the info is organized in a way that makes sense and covers such a breadth of topics useful for survival. A definite must-have app for outdoor people.
