Your browser is a terrible place to find new apps. Get Playboard, start discovering!
A decent compass. Uses the phone's sensors, doesn't require connectivity. Assuming your iPhone's compass is accurate, this is super-handy in the field.
If Spygalss is a bit too much for you, Compass keeps things simpler. Not augmented reality bla-bla -- just a nice compass that looks good even on Retina displays.
Lets you identify animal tracks in the wild. Includes only North American mammals, so not really handy if you're travelling the jungles of South America or Asia.
Based on US Military survival advice, so should be worth something. BUT you do want to read it ahead of time if you're serious about surviving...
Sort of like Google Sky... but for iOS. Point your iPhone at the sky, and this app will help you figure out what's what. Great for kids, too.
Lets you count down the days to departure, and make sure you don't forget anything crucial.
Another camping checklist app, comes preloaded with stuff to take with you, categorized.
Recreational Equipment, Inc
A pretty good guide for rock climbers (companion to the Mountain Project website). Works offline too, as you would expect.
Double Dog Studios
Don't let the name confuse you: This is NOT an official US Army app. Still, the advice can be helpful, especially if you read it ahead of time.
American Red Cross
Unlike the Army First app, this one actually is official, from the Red Cross. This is good not just for the outdoors, but also for day-to-day stuff (you can even dial 911 directly from the app).
Hey, it's handy for the outdoors, too! As long as you download the maps ahead of time.
If you're in a true wilderness situation, you're not going to want to use this (conserve your phone's batteries!). But for lightweight flashlight duty, this is a great little gem.
AccuWeather International, Inc.
A beautiful, accurate, weather app. Gets the job done.
Our awesome (and infrequent) newsletter will make sure you always know about hot games and apps, with in-depth reviews, recommendations for channels to follow, and more!
