On Android the offline survival manual is pretty top notch. It has a lot of good info. Plus it's free and based on an army manual (FM 3-05.70)
A couple of apps to have on hand for emergency situations:
Offline Survival Manual open source app that offers a lot of detailed survival information gathered from army manuals.
First aid by British Red Cross quick instructions for various first aid incidents. Quizzes and further information are also available.
Si pe langa asta, util e si asa ceva instalat pe telefon, nu se stie cand e nevoie.
Poate cei din spatele site-ului ar trebui sa ia in considerare si aplicatii pe telefon(android/ios), avand in vedere ca deja au continutul.
App - Survival manual offline
Description (From play store )
> 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.
link Android ( dont know about IOS )
I'll repost this higher up for anyone interested, but there is an app called "Survival Guide" that works entirely offline. It has medical info, knots, habitat building, hunting and cooking, etc included, plus other information related to CBERN (Chemical Biological Explosive Radioactive Nuclear) events and the aftermath.
After looking in the app store for the link, I realize there are bunch of useful offline apps like this, but Survival Guide has the highest rating. Link is here ---> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
Offline Survival Manual. Thought it was some joke app about how to survive without internet. NOPE a pretty fucking good survival guide right there in your phone.
Fun to just read through now and again
I have nothing for Kindle, but I do have this app on my phone. It doesn't need a connection to work, just the phone needs power.
Just make sure he has a way to keep his device charged.
Here is an app you can download with archives to things preppers find useful and 100% works offline and keeps the information on your device to be used as long as that device has power.
This is a good app you can install on your Android phone. If you have any iPhone there's gotta be something similar. I wouldn't rely 100% on an app out in the woods though. I like to just read through sections when I'm sitting around at work waiting for someone else to finish a task so I can get started
For Android users "survival manual" by the developer Ligi. Is an app that works offline with many useful tips and guides
this is the app

I think this is the one you're talking about: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
I installed it a few weeks ago, but I highly doubt I'll ever use it. Unless it's to look up "how to charge your phone to read this fucking thing using only twigs and berries." But it's free and I have the space, so why not have it?
"Offline Survival Manual" Lotta useful info with plenty of diagrams.
OtterBox Defender on my S10+. Also, when I'm hiking/camping I keep my phone in a small fanny pack. When I do need to take it out I don't walk with it...as much as that's possible. Every once in a while I may have to follow a prerecorded GPS track through an area that requires some bushwhacking.
Here is a handy survival guide you can keep an offline copy of on your Android. You never know when it might be needed. Very compact data wise.
It's also available in a wiki page form.
I doubt it's much use other then for basic survival, or for someone that is new to prepping, but you can download Survival Manuals from playstore on android phones. I'm sure it's same on iPhones. Pretty basic stuff, but if your a novice or a pro, it works as a handy reminder and checklist for when SHTF and covers a number of scenarios. Guess it'd be handy if you can't take a computer. Aslong as you can keep your phone charged etc.
A bit of a tangent and maybe not directly answering your question, OP, but those who are not in immediate danger I suggest downloading the Offline Survival Manual app. It's loaded with beneficial information, has a day/night reading mode, editable (good if you want to fix errors or add personal data), and - true to its name - works offline.
I read it from time to time just to stack myself with knowledge so I can mentally prepare myself in case of emergencies. I hope you all are safe. Have a great weekend.
Cool idea, it's like the 'offline survival manual', but with the Wikipedia library. I like the idea of having all that info without having to worry about a connection.
For a more basic use without the entire Wiki library this is worth a look as well
You sound like my survival manual app.
18-2. In the first shadow-tip method, find a straight stick 1 meter (3 feet) long, and a level spot free of brush on which the stick will cast a definite shadow. This method is simple and accurate and consists of four steps:
Step 1. Place the stick or branch into the ground at a level spot where it will cast a distinctive shadow. Mark the shadow's tip with a stone, twig, or other means. This first shadow mark is always west—everywhere on earth.
Step 2. Wait 10 to 15 minutes until the shadow tip moves a few centimeters. Mark the shadow tip's new position in the same way as the first. This mark will represent East.
Step 3. Draw a straight line through the two marks to obtain an approximate east-west line.
Step 4. Stand with the first mark (west) to your left and the second mark to your right—you are now facing north. This fact is true everywhere on earth.
There's actually a survival manual app in the playstore with all this information and more. I download it on all my devices, just in case I'm ever.. You know, stuck on a remote island or lost in a rain forest. But I'd imagine it's be super useful for people who camp and love outdoors.
This is a survival manual that can be used offline and has topics from Psychology to the different plants both editable and poisonous. Even if you're not in a survival situation it's still such a good thing to read and at least have on your phone.
only if you're in a pretty bad way. if you really need water, you need to get to a potable water source. if you're in that bad a way, its time to think slightly longer term. you need shelter, fire, water, and food. also, a signal fire as well.
if you routinely go out into the woods, carrying basic supplies is never a bad idea. water, snacks (not junk food per se, but something that has a lot of non-sugary energy (trail mix is awesome IMO), something that's ropelike (fishing line is good especially causes.... you know... you can fish with it too lol. don't use Monofilimant, you can cut urself up with it), a knife, and a firestarter kit (flint and steel, lighter, strike-anywhere matches, whatever floats your boat). could keep it all in a fanny pack.
I have a bracelet made of paracord I wear everywhere. mostly cause I love it, but also because if you're up the creek, you can disassemble it and paracord (the real stuff) is rated generally for 550 lbs. you could hang a dear with that, or use it to make a shelter. use it with a stick to turn it into a firestick. etc.
With wilderness survival, Follow the rough rule of threes.
Three minutes without air
Three hours in harsh conditions without shelter
Three days without water
three weeks without food
its a rough rule because obviously, it varies person to person, but not by much.
edit: there is a pretty cool android app that is a self-contained survival Guide (it downloads to your phone so it works even with no internet) called "Offline Survival Manual" not a bad thing to keep on ur phone. obviously ur battery isn't gonna last forever, but hey, at the worst, it gives u something to read while ur on the crapper in the basement where there isn't any wifi at work ;)
There is not as much as I thought, only one page, but "headache, irritability, sweating, cold" are some of the symptoms of heat exhaustion. Its under the desert section, there is about 4 paragraphs.
(/klemonzestphone)For the survival part, there's the Offline Survival Manual for Android devices. I don't know what you'd get if you have an iPhone, though.
The rule of 3's
Also This: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
This is a neat app (android) that has a lot of useful stuff.
Called "Survival Manual".
I don't know if there is a way to print it off to have a hardcopy, but makes for a good bathroom read.
(/scootahail) You're right, next up, mlp wiki
Though, on a more serious note, everyone should get this app
It's only 8MB and it contains load of useful survival information you can access offline, in case of an emergency
I think you'll get more personalized answers off people here who narrate their own experiences.
And here's an application I found off Reddit, it was really useful for me and my friends when we went on a road trip! I really hope it helps you! It works offline and has way too much advice: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
Probably best to download this app and read the Universal Edibility Test (right after figure 9-4) rather than eating random berries.
Offline Survival Manual | 4.7 ⭐️ | Free | 5.2MB |
> 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 ...
^(Legend: |🏠: Family Library| ▶️: Play Pass|)
It does, which is obviously pretty nifty in an actual survival situation. It's literally called "survival manual."
Here's the play store link incase that's helpful.
As a good rule of thumb: dont disturb radiated soil. If you must, work from inside the trench and dont throw it in a manner to spread dust.
I would recommend reading the man-made hazard chapter of this app.
there's an app for this! it's designed to be low power intensive app, but more importantly it's available so you can print out a physical copy.
Offline Survival Manual
doesn't really cover apocalypse scenarios, but survival skills are still applicable.
I recommend reading the kit part,and pick out equipment from there.
Weapons schould be quite light. I recommend you look at the ranger forces of the us. Drones and data analytics are probably quite important.
Also, Military clothes are the way they are because they are practical, and that probably won't change.
Offline Survival Manual (Android, but I'm sure there are similar apps for iPhone) and MAPS.ME could both be very handy as long as you are able to otherwise minimize phone usage and keep it charged. MAPS.ME lets you download maps for offline use so even if your network goes down you can still navigate. GPS itself does not require any network connection.
I'm not qualified to give you answers myself.
However, I found this mobile app years ago: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
It's a fairly complete guide. I hoped I'd never need it, but...
I hope you make it out healthy. I'm sorry for what is happening to you.
Came here to say the same. Also, there is a great App you can also download calle Online Survival Manual one I think which is available on Google Play https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual&gl=IE
I use this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
Granted, you'll need to keep your phone charged to use it during an emergency, but it has a chapter on producing power. Just plan ahead.
This is pretty good and free https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual&hl=en_GB&gl=US&referrer=utm_source%3Dgoogle%26utm_medium%3Dorganic%26utm_term%3Dsurvival+manual+android
I recommend people to download this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
Offline Survival Manual, it's free.
Not only because it could be useful but mainly because I found it interesting to read
If you have an android phone I use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual it's entirely offline so as long as you can keep your phone/device powered you have a guide.
It's not the most in-depth but it's pretty good, given that it's free and probably better to have in a pinch than nothing.
Yes, pdfs saved in phone. "Art of war" book/app for free, this app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual) is an off-line surival manual. I read it when not scrolling this subredit and waiting in line.
It's rough that they take your preps. Point out the TP shortages, suggest "it doesn't hurt to have some things saved up" Best way to make someone go underground and be devious us to poo poo on their ideas or beliefs.
What about friends? Any chance to store some stuff at their places? Find creative spaces like under bed, basement, attics, wall spaces, places in a shed no one goes (being safe all the time)
As a patent, this makes me sad. If my kids were more into preparedness, I'd be thrilled.
I'd like to make this specific topic into a podcast and YouTube video if that's ok with you?
This is available as an offline capable app, ensuring the knowledge is stored on your phone and available at a moment's notice.
A good dictionary app is always a solid choice. I've also had this installed on my phone for a while, although I haven't really used it much.
Survival Manual on the Play Store is open-source, and won't give your phone cancer.
It's also available on F-Droid.
Si vamos a esenciales,estilo esenciales en caso de emergencia yo tengo Survival Manual, aunque uno no le puedo dar mucho uso en caso de accidente o emergencia tiene desde hacer nudos,primeros auxilios hasta extremos como sobrevivir.
Esta buena para leer cuando no tenes internet.
If you have android theres an App called "Offline Survival Manual" if you download it and go to the water section theres a personal hygeine topic ab a simple way to use lye + grease / animal fat and some other ways.
Dude - don't panic.
This event is pretty likely a shft scenario, but society won't collapse as we know it.
Banks will still expect mortgage payments and your landlord will expect rent. So you'll still need to work to make a living.
Likely society will simply change our culture habits of hugs and kisses to air hifives and telling people to work from home if at all possible (retail will likely be switched to automated processes) so crap you'd buy in store more requires you to buy online and then have a robot drop your stuff off for pick up. (years later though)
Do prepare, but don't break laws to fill in gaps of your equipment. You can survive with a good baton knife and the ability to make fire.
These two things will allow you to sanitize water, build a shelter, create tools, and lastly hunt / build traps for food.
If you can't stomach dressing up meat then start a garden (as vast majority of people will be doing).
Remember you don't need the most fancy shit to survive. Just your intelligence and health.
With all that said - here's a bundle offline survival guide that covers a bunch of shit (honestly though - you're library during a pandemic will likely be deserted before total lock down).
Just remember to breath man.
Since it seems like you still have your phone, download this app:
Also, always use battery saver mode, until you get your life back. It cuts distractions and lowers your electric bill.
I installed an app that has instructions on finding food, building a fire or a shelter... Basically everything. And it runs with no internet.
Now I either need to write it all before my phone dies or have a solar charger. One of the two.
I'm kinda late to this but I'm somewhat paranoid/anxiously eager/afraid of a large scale disaster and always keep an inventory of essentials in my house. Further, I make a note of important places I could go to in case my house is compromised and also keep a survival app on my phone that I read from time to time to gather information about plants and animals. It's called "Offline Survival Manual" by a publisher called "ligi" and is available on the PlayStore.
Here's a link:
Minimize power usage by turning everything down, then hand copy out the contents of Offline Survival Manual - Android. Sell it for income.
With Offline Survival App you'd have:
(Off the main menu):
Psychology, power (for keeping phone up), basic medicine, shelter, water, fire, food, plants, poisonous plants (reasons, evil mostly), animals, tools, (location things: desert, tropical, cold, sea, water crossing), signaling, hostile areas(think enemies or aggressive groups), camouflage and people tips
You could use all of this to either get money, political power, basically it would depend on your negotiation skills, and there are people and psychology tips here too, I remember reading something about it.
You could train people with it, and so on.
All o' this in your hand, I never uninstall this thing in case of emergency.
There also was an app to send your location to family periodically with a minimal battery drain. It could even send it via SMS if data connection is not available. But I can't find the link.
Oh. In that case he wants this which gives all the offline information you'll need in a 5.3mb download for your smartphone.
Super portable and you'll have access to it as long as you have battery. Which brings us to the problem, if the internet is down the reality is that the power almost certainly is too and thus rendering any download to anything without a battery useless and anything with a battery only as useful as you have battery life for.
Having this information in a useful for offline use doesn't come from download, it comes from physical books.
In Google Store is offline application "survival manual" (android phones). Write by German programmer but good English translation. In water section they wrote about that.
I really like the open-source Offline Survival Manual, also available on F-Droid. You could take a look at that if you want to size up the competition.
Stock up on food and water, have appropriate shelter, and if you think it's necessary gather some weapons. Also download this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
I imagine it would be rather helpful during the disaster.
You would probably be referred to this page https://kr.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/disaster-preparedness/
There is also the military survival guide in the form of an app (Playstore link)
I've found this useful.
Pretty sure it's Offline Survival Manual

There are a few apps like this which do a similar thing, but not with some of those particular ideas.
This app is a survival manual pretty cool read when your bored
I'm gonna blatantly steal from this app:
The environment is the key to the types of items you will need in your survival kit. How much equipment you put in your kit depends on how you will carry the kit. A kit carried on your body will have to be smaller than one carried in a vehicle. Keep the most important items on your body. For example, your map and compass ( also in the form of Apps on your phone ) should always be on your body, as should a lighter and a Multi-Tool.
In preparing your survival kit, select items that are multipurpose, compact, lightweight, durable, and most importantly, functional. An item is not good if it looks great but doesn't do what it was designed for. Items should complement each other from layer to layer. A signal mirror in your pocket can be backed up by pen flares in your LBE and a signal panel in your rucksack. A lighter in your pocket can be augmented by a magnesium bar in your LBE and additional dry tinder in your rucksack.
Your survival kit need not be elaborate. You need only functional items that will meet your needs and a case to hold the items. For example, you might want to use a bandage box, soap dish, tobacco tin, first-aid case, or another suitable container. This container should be:
Water-repellent or waterproof
Easy to carry or attach to your body
Suitable to accept various-sized components
Your survival kit should be broken down into the following categories:
Each category should contain items that allow you to sustain your basic needs. For example, water: you should have items that allow you to scoop up, draw up, soak up, or suck up water; something to gather rainwater, condensation, or perspiration; something to transport water; and something to purify or filter water. Some examples of each category are as follows:
water filter like the LifeStraw
non-lubricated condoms for carrying water
small plastic or rubber tubing
collapsible canteens or water bags
machete or hatchet
knife ( can be the one on your MultiTool
fish and snare line
bouillon cubes or soup packets
high-energy food bars
gill or yeti net
oxytetracycline tablets (to treat diarrhea or infection)
surgical blades or surgical preparation knife
lip balm, safety pins
sutures, antidiarrheal medication (imodium)
antimalarial medication (doxycycline)
broad-spectrum antibiotics (rocephin and zithromax) and broad spectrum topical ophthalmic (eye) antibiotic
Medical items may make up approximately 50 percent of your survival kit.
pilot scarf or other bright orange silk scarf
glint tape, flashlight, laser pointer, solar blanket
needle and thread
Read and practice the survival techniques in this manual and apply these basic concepts to those you read about in other publications. Then prepare your survival kit with items that are durable, multipurpose, and lightweight. Imagination may be the largest part of your kit. It can replace many of the items in a kit. Combined with the will to live, it can mean the difference between life and death.
Here's an offline survival manual for Android.
I use Offline Survival Manual:
Non proprio a livello di Primitive Technology, ma questa app è carina e piena di voci
I would suggest you look at this app first.
Offline Survival Manual app on play store.
I'd be careful with the 3.5 star threshold because you can easily buy reviews online.
A few things I'd consider:
installing LineageOS instead of stock android if feasible. Be prepared, some features may not supported yet but usualy it extends runtime and hasnt much - if any - bloatware on it.
if you're not located in the US, other countries may issue country-specific warning apps like NINA (germany) or Team Österreich, Katwarn (austria)
encrypt your phone
there are multiple privacy apps like Tor Browser, K9 Mail, OpenKeyChain, ...
if you've got a big enough sd-card, add personal documents like scans of your passport, driving license, insurance policies, birth certificate, etc in an encypted file. You can use something like VeraCrypt to encypt your file and (IMPORTANT) keep the software aswell on the sd (e.g. VeraCrypt has portable versions for Windows, Linux and MacOS)

Thanks for the links!
Some might find this app useful as well. "Offline Survival Manual"
In all seriousness there is Offline Survival Manual for Android. Better to have it and not need it.
Yep, it's available on Google Play. There's a link.
This is a free digital book for Android phones. There could be a version for iPhone as well. "Offline Survival Manual"
Here's something everyone should put on their phones just in case: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual
Maybe this could help you. Anyway it doesn't hurt to have it on your phone.
There's a pretty extensive app called survival manual on Google play. It's free and precise
Android app (prob one for iPhone too)
Ils auraient dû plutôt distribuer des manuels de survie
Well I will seriously injure myself on marshy farmland, as in 1817 the location of my house was a piece of marshy farmland. So okay...
So it's 1817 in Scotland and it's November. Okay, fuck. Well, I'm a historian and I have a healthy knowledge of my local surroundings at that time because I used to regularly browse the online map library and look at maps of my local area. It's November so it's going to be cold as fuck so I need to seek shelter. The nearest shelter is a farm West of my Location. So I go there to warm up...
I'm in 21st century dress: a Nirvana T-shirt and a pair of PJ bottoms. So I'll arise suspicion and may get arrested for that. Also language has changed so I'll have issues speaking in Modern Scots to someone who speaks Lowland Scots of the 19th century variety. What else...
Oh wait, I'm a transsexual woman in a time when being that will get me hung. Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuuuuuck.
OK so, I pass (thank fuck) so I have that going for me, so let's keep the genitals hidden and I should be fine, but if I'm stuck here for too long I my facial hair will grow (I've not had electrolysis) so that will give me away unless I can acquire a razor...despite having no money in the local current currency, FUCK.
OK, so I get a current map of the current area and find a woodland to hide in, not too hard to do because the National Library of Scotland has an online map library. Then, download this app. to tell me how to survive in the woods, and maybe collect resources to sell to buy clothing and supplies. There's plenty of Broom in the area so I could make and sell Brooms to buy clothes, food and stuff to, well, make sure I don't get killed as a transsexual in 1817's Scotland where I could get hanged.
Now I have access to the internet, modern internet access. Well okay are we talking a direct line to 200 years in the future? Great! I would be missing without a trace, so, I message someone in the future telling them what happened, and surely I can't be the only person for this to happen to and that would be news, you know? People noticing people vanishing from trains and buses and homes suddenly can't be something that won't make the news. Basically message them and see what happened and how or if I can make it back.
But chances are, I'm going to be hung. Okay, so if I have a smartphone I could then broadcast images into the future for people to see and maybe stream images into the past. Maybe I can convince them I am a time traveller and they could help me. I'm a historian so, I guess I could progress my field by documenting the world around me. There's a Castle near my location, or there was, it was in ruins in 1817, which was demolished in my time, so I could get photos of that. Decent photos in colour that are ultra detailed. I could get photos of lost houses and gardens, HD footage of streets and places that are long gone. Hell, I'm going to be here a while, I could document the rise of the Railways, fuck yeah.
But yeah, chances are I'm going to die. I'm not Chevalier d'Éon.
It also wouldn't hurt to have a knot guide :)
Don't know if this is going to be buried, but a good resource to read or just geek out on is Offline Survival Manual: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ligi.survivalmanual&hl=en
It's made for low disk size and for casual reading or OMG moments.
I keep it downloaded and just read a bit once in a while. It's great to know that I have a resource to use if stranded and I got a few hours left on my phone. Also, why I periodically read to be more use to the logic in it rather memorization.
