Description

Survival skills are techniques a person may use in a dangerous situation (e.g. natural disasters) to save themselves or others (see also bushcraft). Generally speaking, these techniques are meant to provide the basic necessities for human life: water, food, shelter, habitat, and the need to think straight, to signal for help, to navigate safely, to avoid unpleasant interactions with animals and plants, and for first aid. In addition, survival skills are often basic ideas and abilities that ancient humans had to use for thousands of years, so these skills are partially a reenactment of history. Many of these skills are the ways to enjoy extended periods of time in remote places, or a way to thrive in nature. Some people use these skills to better appreciate nature and for recreation, not just survival.

5/5 stars

Great app, but

:
They forgot to include the section How to make electricity to charge your iPhone in the wild

5/5 stars

For those who say the text is too small.

:
If you think the text is to small just drag one finger from the center of the screen to the top right corner while simultaneously dragging another finger from the center of the screen to the bottom left. This will make the text bigger. To make the text smaller just do it in reverse. You can do this with any app on your iPod Touch or iPhone. You can also place your finger on the text and hold it there. Doing this will make a magnifying glass appear. I hope this helps.

Great app!

5/5 stars

Awesome!

:
It could make the difference between life and death! Free!
