  • The basic idea...

    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
    ...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source - www.opensource.org

    Details: Offline Survival Manual

    market download Offline Survival Manual
    This is a Survival Manual which is fully working offline (which is important to survive in a case of some extreme situation)
    It contains info on how to make fire, build a shelter, find food, heal and other useful content in 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.

    Refugees are also welcome to 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 none free software ( FOSS ) on FDroid. Hence I was writing this Software. You can find the source-code on github: https://github.com/ligi/SurvivalManual
    Pull requests are welcome!
    If you have improvements regarding the content or want to help translate you can use the wiki: https://github.com/ligi/SurvivalManual/wiki
