Have you ever been in a situation- you know the kind- where you're miles from civilization, with your foot stuck in a bear trap, it's 20 degrees below freezing and you just ate your last emergency hotdog?
Introducing Roebuck, the survival companion and memory aid!
With Roebuck's master learning modules, learn how to tame the outdoors, fight off starvation, and prepare for anything this crazy universe throws at you. And importantly, reinforce that knowledge with quizzes to level up your survival skills so when the going gets tough, you'll know exactly what steps to take. It's unlikely you'll be able to whip out your phone to deal with every crisis, so Roebuck emphasizes memorization of key skills and facts that can help you react efficiently and effectively, whatever the situation.
Roebuck covers a wide variety of survival situations, from the bushcraft of wilderness fire-starting and basic first aid; to urban survival strategies, in-depth analyses of the psychology and philosophy of survival, and even where to poop (because we all have to). New modules are added regularly on exciting new topics, with care taken to ensure modules reflect the very best of survival practice.
The world is becoming a more dangerous place; how will you respond? Will you suck your thumb and take up a foetal position in the corner? (Tempting...) Or will you arm yourself with the most effective tool of all: knowledge?
Choose knowledge, choose survival! Roebuck is available now on Android.

You'd think that it wouldn't be much of a problem these days given the fact that most of us have a mobile phone strapped to our hands for much of the time but it does seem to happen on a regular basis. Lost? Simple! We can just check our GPS, call the authorities or call Bear Grills to come and rescue us pretty damned smart. The thing is, not only do mobiles run out of power pretty quickly but there are also plenty of places out there that have little or no mobile reception. So, that means that we might have to rely on our savvy and our survival skills to get us out safely.
So, how are your survivor skills these days anyway? Well, unless we've been to the Bear Grills survival school, I'm guessing that they are pretty average. Could we light a fire to keep us warm if we are out all night in freezing temperatures? What would we do if we were bitten by a snake or chased by a bear? How do we build a shelter? What can and can't we eat and drink? Thankfully, there's now an Android app that can act as your survival handbook so that you can learn the right things to do if you ever find yourself in a...
