Maybe I'm paranoid, but I was thinking about the Miracle on the Hudson, the TV show Lost, and the movie Cast Away starring Tom Hanks, and how his flashlight went out, etc. So it got me thinking about apps for when you're stranded like that. Everyone posts variations on "what's your favorite app", but that's so wide open, so I thought I'd ask this: What apps would you want/need if you were stranded on a desert island. NOT your favorite game to while away the time until your battery died... but what apps might actually help you save your life? For sake of argument, I don't think you can assume that EDGE, 3G, or WiFi work or you could use Google Earth, etc. and email for help. Here are some examples... It might be fun to compile a list of real apps, and wishlist apps. an S.O.S. Flashlight app a night sky constellation locator app a snake and/or wildlife identifier a First aid app wildlife recipes a battery optimizer app?
