Fishington Studios brings with iSurvival a kind of reprint of US Army’s Survival Guide FM 21-76, which was issued to help soldiers to survive in unknown territory. So it’s not for survival of the next meeting with your boss, it’s real outdoor survival. They did their job integrating this book in a app not perfect, because the content is shown too small. If you really want to read, you’ll have to scroll a lot. That could have done a better way. Good, that there are several graphics showing you essential information about wildlife and how to do this and that.
