Survival Guide makes your smartphone a lifesaver [Freeware]


Never mind the hassles of fighting your way through department store sales day, you never know when things could get really rough. Like, eat or be eaten rough. And when that day comes you’re going to need a friend close by who can stop you doing stupid, and ensure that you have at least a fighting chance of surviving one night without peril.

That’s where this Survival Guide for your smartphone comes in. Yes, yes we know all about the problem when your phone runs out of battery, but if you haven’t got a solar charger ready waiting by then, perhaps it’s not your destiny to survive? Anyhoo, it’s crammed full of vitally useful information on things like finding water, injury treatment and how to light a fire in extreme circumstances.

Unfortunately it makes no mention of how to fight off zombies, crack open a derelict McDonalds burger freezer or other tips which could be handy, but it’s a start. The first thing to remember is not to panic. And don’t eat that mushroom, it’ll probably kill you deads. Available for free download in Android and iPhone versions.
