When I first purchased this app it was excellent. Then with each update it became less desirable. Now it doesn’t even work, without purchasing something. ”Don’t waist your time.” “ Sure am glad I noticed this parachute was broken, before I actually needed to use it. “
Update from old 5 star rating: from unsurpassed to unusable. What did you do? Fire everyone on your “updating “ staff and return the app we paid for. Lofty, clean house. Old rating: (was 5 stars)Good reading and watching when bored. I recommend having this as a supplement to the actual book, which should be in a pocket anytime you are outdoors past the parking lot
The app does not allow me to continue to read the book I already purchased, it only takes me to a screen offering new titles. When I eventually navigate to the title I own it’s simply does not open.
Hoping 1 star review lowers the average and gets these bugs the attention they deserve. But who knows if anyone is actually paying attention
Update: As other reviewers have done, I deleted the app, reinstalled, then restarted the device (shutting it down from settings). After restarting the device, the app now works! Guess it’s a glitch with last update. Still a good app, but have to dock a star for the extra steps required to make it work. I rarely write reviews, but the last update was so disappointing. This used to be a great app. Very informative. Unfortunately, since the last update, it will not open the original SAS app. Instead it takes you to a home screen to view (and purchase) other SAS titles. Even after navigating to the library which shows the apps you own, the app refuses to open. PLEASE FIX! Love this app when it actually worked, will update review if I can use again.
This gives one real world options available to every survivor as well as helping to get you in "the zone" so that one can make necessary decisions and think in a survival mode.
Paid the $6, it wouldn’t work when I was out in the woods and needed it. Was told to delete app and re-download to make it work and now it wants me to pay again. What a waste of time and money. You don’t deserve to charge for something that doesn’t work.
If this was a test to make sure we were prepared with a backup version of the actual, physical, book, well played. I do have a copy. It still seems to work at least. This app doesn’t. One star.
fantastic guide you can pull out anytime to keep things fresh. pictures and video are great additions! highly recommended if you have any interest in survival techniques. EDIT: no longer works. from 5 stars to 1. please update.
Great app (must have!) but please update for iPhone X. (Would be 5 Stars with iPhone X support and faster / cleaner interface). Speed, ease, and clarity of access are critical in a survival situation.
