First of all, as anyone who has owned Lofty Wiseman's book in any form will be aware, his SAS Survival Guide is amazing, accessible and full of superb information that really would save your life when you needed it. I cannot praise it highly enough.

This is, however, reviewing the app format of this information. Sadly, I've been disappointed. While it's great to be able to search for the various parcels of info you might need, the thing which I expected to be most brilliant about this digital version was the ability to access video content of Wiseman demonstrating his methods. Try as I might I unfortunately cannot get this feature to work. As instructed by Amazon, I contacted the app developer, but have received no response at all.

It's a real shame as I had great hopes for this. As it is, I'll be sticking to my Collins Gem edition, unless Trellisys.net do something about the problem soon. Poor service so far. Very poor.

I bought the paperback of this book years ago when it first came out and liked it very much. The online version is handy for me to refer to.

I would have given this app 5 stars had it not been for the poor quality photo and video library's. The videos seem very last minute and low quality. I use a kindle fire hd and I find the images in the image gallery too small and grainy . But, other than my little gripe on the image and video library, the rest of the app is excellent and well worth the investment. I also have the paperback version of this book and they go very well together. Highly recommended :)
