If you don't know who MacGyver is, keep moving. Just kidding. You must know who MacGyver is! Okay, I'm going to assume you know who he is. If now, here's a wiki link for that.
A few days ago, I read about an app that that allows other people to know that you're choking. I didn't know that at first. I thought it was an app that shows you what to do when someone else is choking. As a matter of fact, I've got an app called "PocketCPR". It provides step by step instruction on performing CPR.
But I'm looking for more than just a one trick app. I'm looking for a MacGyver app. See, MacGyver has the ability find a solution to a difficult situation with just things lying around. Now, I don't play on infiltrating a Russian prison to break out a political prisoner. However, knowing that peeing on the stop by a jellyfish is something that's good to know.
And if I'm ever stranded in the middle of nowhere, knowing how to start a fire with a couple of twigs could go a long way between survival and freezing to death.
I'm looking for an app that provides rudimentary survival skills, first aid instructions, and other common sense ideas. I can see many mobile users buy and download these life-how-to apps, wouldn't you?
Maybe the actor who played MacGyver, Richard Dean Anderson, should get into the app business.
