This is aSurvival Manualwhich is fullyworking offline(which is important to survive in a case of some extreme situation)
It contains info onhow to make fire, build a shelter, find food, heal and other useful contentin a case of emergency.

But it does not have to be used in emergency situations only - it can be also useful for trips to the outdoors, hiking, camping, learning about nature and yourself truly. This is not only fun, but you can also train skills (make fire, build shelter, ..) you might need in a catastrophy. Some things work best with practice in a relaxed environment - then you also have time for some experiments.

Refugeesare alsowelcometo use this app to prepare and guide them for their dangerous journey. Although I hope we as humans come to sense and stop the wars so that people do not have to flee and be afraid.

Background:

In the midst of the current political situation (A dangerous man as president of a big nuclear power nation) I had to prepare for doomsday scenarios and was searching for a good Survival Guide that I can use offline.
There where some but none of them where really good & fitting. Also there was nonefree software ( FOSS )on FDroid. Hence I was writing this Software. You can find the source-code on github: https://github.com/ligi/SurvivalManual
