QuickAdvice: SAS Survival Guide
SAS Survival Guide ($6.99) by Trellisys.net is the only app you need to stay alive when the going gets tough.
The SAS Survival Guide is world famous for being the definitive guide to surviving any situation, anywhere in the world and now, for the first time ever, the bestselling book has been released especially for the iPhone.
This application is packed to the hilt with elite training techniques used to make the SAS one of the worlds most devastating fighting forces. The content is accessible and the interface is simple and easy to use. This is your chance to learn the skills you need to survive in the wild and if you are into outdoor pursuits then you carry them around with you, just in case.
The content for the app is written by former SAS soldier and instructor, John "Lofty" Wiseman, and the features include the entire text of the original book fully optimised for the iphone and 16 videos of survival tips. The inbuilt gallery contains images detailing how to tie knots and photos of edible, medicinal and poisonous plants which can be invaluable out in the field and, in some extreme circumstances, could be the difference between life and death.
You will never be caught out again because not only does this app teach you how to survive it includes some tools to help you if you happen to get into trouble. There's a Morse Code signalling device, a survival checklist, a First aid section and a sun compass (just incase your GPS or iPhone compass doesn't work in the wilderness).
Before you set out there is a survival quiz to complete which is a great way to test if you've got what it takes to survive and if you do need to brush up your knowledge then you can easily scan the entire book for answers using the intelligent search tool.
SAS Survival Guide is an absolute steal, especially considering that it's half the price of the original book which doesn't come packed with all the additional features available in the app.
