Completely hostile to survival
I'd bought this app a while ago and opened and read it a few times. Last week I was in a survival situation — stranded in a desert without cell service — and I opened this app. What do I see? "Please connect to internet for the first time use to see the content." Are you kidding me? (1) It was not my first time use, I had opened it before — I assume a recent update has caused the app to act like it was a new install, which is sloppiness on the developers' part. (2) I WAS STRANDED IN A DESERT AND NEEDED HELP, and could not connect to the Internet to get past this screen! That the developers would put unnecessary DRM over survival is a refutation of this app's stated purpose. Deplorable and deserving of nothing other than complete scorn in my opinion. I'm glad help came from other sources so I did not have to depend on this app.
This is a quality source of survival info. I don't appreciate the part saying to eat my pets in times of emergency (even specifying which ones to eat first), but other than that, it's good.
You will die before it finishes Loading
It's stuck loading after installing app. I deleted and reloaded the app a second time with the same outcome. Until this is fixed it's a total waste. The developers should be ashamed and so should Apple. I guess they have forgotten quality control.
