Customer Reviews

Former Special Forces

Thank you for an opportunity to provide feedback. I helped update the US Army Survival FM in the 80's and have completed several Survival Schools in addition to being an avid Sportsman. I fished and trapped as a youth and attended forestry school in my college years. The reason I tell you my background is that not only have I conducted joint missions with the SAS, but I believe I have an excellent understanding of Survival preparation. Quite simply I have had my family members download the SAS Survival app onto their smart phones and computers in case of an emergency and for quick reference. The resident properties and access are critical especially is one loses their connectivity.
I do have a complaint though! After downloading your recent upgrade I can no longer use most of the functions that I am familiar with and consider critical for using this app. When attempting to drill down I am continuously returned to the IPhone 4 Main Screen. A fix or way to contact you for a corrected upgrade is much needed. Sincerely, Dave Wein

My favorite survival

This app is by far my favorite app concerning survival. This is better than most $10 apps and I guarantee this app has saved a few lives. Thank you for this app and I hope to see many updates to come. My only wish is that you would have videos for more shelters for more climatea
