    "This app includes pretty much everything that the published book does. As somebody who regularly enjoys outdoor activities this has helped me out many times. Not only is the information practical, but it is fun to read up on advice for various situations. I highly recommend this app to anybody who is outdoorsy or simply wants to be prepared for many situations."

    "For the past few years I have been on the road a lot traveling from town to town and I wanted to make sure I can find my way around strange new cities and towns that I have to visit for conducting business in. I was looking for an app that has GPS technology that will allow me to navigate complex and unfamiliar terrain and territories. I found this amazing survivalist app, called 3D Compass Pro that I installed on my phone and I absolutely love it, it has literally saved my life. I was in the middle of Kansas driving across the great plains, when a tornado storm suddenly touched down and it was destroying everything, it was the scariest thing I have ever experienced in my life, I saw trailers and horses being sucked up by the tornado and scattered for miles away. I had to find an alternative route to escape the madness and terror of the tornado and the 3D Compass Pro found me an alternative and safe route to navigate away from the environmental disaster. Thank you 3D Compass Pro for saving my life that day."

    "This app just works. It's a compass. It points north. That's what it does. You might be thinking you don't really need it, but honestly, it comes in handy at the strangest times. If you get lost or something like that, being able to quickly orient yourself in a direction is such a relief. This app does nothing else fancy - it doesn't have fifty thousand features. It's just a compass. What more could you ask for?"

    "Although I'm sure there are compass apps out there with more bells and whistles, the most important aspect will always be the compass itself. Compass PRO is a no-frills app that basically does one thing and one thing only - provides users with a reliable compass. The app must be calibrated before each use, but it's a simple process. Easily my favorite feature is the fact that it displays the exact degree in a side window, thus providing the precision that one might need in the great outdoors. The compass itself is large, easy to see and attractively designed. If you want to use a compass app instead of a traditional compass, you can't go wrong with Compass PRO."

    "This is an extremely useful app. It has all the information I might need in order to perform basic first aid. The best part about it is that I can utilize the information without an internet connection, so it's available offline. I always keep this with me when hiking. "

    "The built-in flashlight on my smartphone is nice, but this Tiny Flashlight app is great. It gives me strobe and color options which give me a sense of security in case I am in an unsafe situation. No problems installing the app and even the ads are barely noticeable."
