  • 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

    If you are good with graphics: please contact me - would like to have a better icon ;-)
