I'm a fairly handy guy (surgeon) and rely on several knots in my practice. Nevertheless I'm pretty hopeless at learning new knots and remembering them, even though I'm a sailor and do some fishing. Knots 3D is the answer. I love every aspect of the app. Great App - 5 Stars! I really like this app, I have four knot apps, and I use this one the most. As a firefighter rope skills is a must and this app helps keep me "knot prepared". The zoom and step through the knot using a finger gestures is real handy. The author updates this app with new knots often. I recommend this app.

    This app has helped me tie complex knots with a live 3D image! And being in Scouts BSA tying knots is a big part of rank advancement, this has helped me remember how to tie the knots I need to know!
  • Love it!

    I love this app. No complaints. Very well thought out. Knots have descriptions, categories, uses etc. very useful. You can watch them being tied forward or reverse and set the speed you want to watch it.
  • Simple

    I have used this app for several things. I just wish some of the categories were like easy to loosen not. Or tie down not for luggage.

    I can’t overstate how handy it is to have over 120 different knots at my disposal, anytime. I’m always hauling crap that needs tying down, or working on some project where just the right knot makes everything easier. This app is far superior to any book, because you can zoom in, rotate, and see the knot actually being tied. I love it it’s worth more than they are charging. 95% of the App Store apps are actually useless for the real world. This is part of that 5% that is awesome.
  • Excellent knot app!

    The app presents a great selection of knots. I like the fact that you can slow down or speed up the rate that the knot tying is demonstrated, as well as change your point of view IE: flip the knot end for end as well as turn it around 360 degrees.
  • Simply the best and easiest!

    Really not much more to say, this is the very best app to use to learn a new knot. You can use others out there but why not simply get the best and easiest?
  • It’s Great

    Of all the Apps I have this is the best. I’ve climbed trees as a young man, now I’m older and still use a lot of these knots sailing all over the world. I Also make my own horse halters.
