I Can-Knot tell a lie, This is the best App for Knot-heads!
I really love this application. I've owned this since 2012 and they have done nothing but made it better. It really is the best application to learn about different knots and how to tie them. Because of the ability to slow down and speed up the actual building of the knot, even if you're not very fast at tying knots you can keep up with the example. It also has examples of knots that you really can use and you want to use. Sailors need to know this information and this is the best place to get it, also it you have ever tied down stuff in a trailer, you need it too! I have built almost every knot listed but there are a couple that I still can't tie but it's no fault of the app. 😊 When I first got this it had about forty knots, now there are over one-hundred and twenty. But don't take it from me, just take a look at the reviews for this application. I don't remember ever seeing a program with reviews like this, I mean this baby really rocks!
THE Best Knotting App
I'm a macramè artist, and while I'm proficient with all the knots I "need" for this purpose, I'm also fascinated by all the practical and safety uses of knots. Despite being staunch that "I-will-not-pay-for-apps", the solid reviews and impressive preview images prompted me to take a chance and fork out the $1.99 for this one. After purchasing, I am far more impressed than I thought possible. The history, practical uses, alternate names, and especially the incredible interactive 3-D graphic animation make it totally worth every penny. I especially love that I can control the speed of the animation. Highly recommend, even to those with only a casual interest in knot tying (but is an incredible resource for the more serious ones as well.) Five thumbs up. 👍👍👍👍👍
As a former Boy Scout, sailor and someone who has spent a lot of time thinking about how to teach people how to tie knots, this is a truly great tool for learning and teaching knots. You can see the knot from every angle. The animations are clear and the speed can be controlled. The color choices make the illustrations very clear. You can also view static images of the animations by moving your finger left and right across the image. I especially appreciate the accompanying history, uses, related knots and safety precautions. They are clear and concise. It’s a lot easier to learn to tie knots using this app than it is using Ashley’s Book of Knots. I have recommended it to my friends, family and anyone who expresses an interest in knot-tying.
The Holy Grail of Knot-Tying References
Throughout my 40-year career as a full-time outdoor writer/photojournalist I have written, photographed and illustrated dozens of "how-to" magazine stories, feature sidebars and columns relevant to the tying and application of the great many specialized knots essential to fishing, boating, camping and more. My peers and I have wistfully imagined an app like this for decades. Now that it's a reality, it's all that we hoped it to be and more. The variable-speed animated illustrations portray a formerly challenging process with a clarity that is far above and beyond anything I and my friends in the outdoor press could ever have visualized. Five stars and an appreciative tip of the old fishing cap to those who conceptualized and created this innovative, easy-to-use game-changer of an app.
Easiest knot app
Just download the app and go! Unlike other knot apps, this one is ready to use when you open it. Other app, you have individually download each knot which can be a pain (especially if your say, out in the woods and have no internet). All the knots are free, so you you don’t have to “upgrade to the pro version” to get the knot you need (I personally believe that all app that that do that should be obligated to call themselves the lite version). The animation is smooth and you can control the speed. Does it have as many knots as other apps? No. But it’s beautifully designed, works offline, easy to use and free.
Awesome for reminding me at camp!!
This app is awesome! It doesn’t use phone data so knot info is always available on your phone, even out in the forest where there’s no signal. Knots are easy to find even if you don’t know the name. This app has never bothered me in any way...sometimes a good app can have a bothersome flaw. This app is awesome in every way!!! ———————— I do wish that there was a game feature to it. So if you have a group of people on a rainy day at camp, or even all alone, you can: Select a category of knots, all knots, or favorite knots; Each person has a piece of rope, a suitable object to tie around, a ring or carabiner, and a stick(toggle); Someone presses the ‘Start Game’ Button and a random knot from the selected list of knots appears on the screen - maybe there could be an option to include or exclude a picture of the finished knot; Everyone attempts to tie the random knot; Keep score however you want (I don’t expect a scoring system to be determined by the app designer); Have fun and learn knots!!!
A must have app for knot enthusiasts and beginners alike
Firstly, I’d like to give credit to the developer, Dave. I emailed Dave with suggestions and a few questions that I had. His response was prompt, thorough, and informative. Now on to the app itself: The animations are superior to other apps. The allowance of viewing the knot tying process from fully invertible, 360 degree, full range-variable speed rotations including the ability to forward and reverse at will is top-notch! Great UI. The relative ease at which the end user is able to accomplish the above mentioned features are just a few reasons why I'm glad that I purchased this app.
Best way to pass the time
I have started using this app to help phase out the compulsive social media need from my life. It’s such a great way to pass that same time, but instead learning every new knot you can possibly think of. I will now often sit for long stretches at a time with my section of paracord practicing, and it’s therapeutic like any craft would be. The UI is easy to navigate and the 3D diagrams make it completely painless to learn. A must for anyone interested in camping, boating, hunting, or just about anything that vaguely involves a cord or rope. If that matches you in any way don’t go without this app!
Fire Dep’t instructor; Kayaking; two activities where right knots may be life saving & prevent injuries. Knowledge is critical! This app keeps my skills sharp, renewing & improving on the go! Presentation is key, Knots 3D has been a great resource I open often to review, learn, practice!! From newbies (probies) to experts this app is perfect! Fast program, great graphics - there’s no other apps approach Knots 3D. I have books, other apps but this one is on front page of my phone for ready and frequent access. And it has versions of popular knots no one else bothers to show but are often better applications.
A knot for every purpose
I was a Boy Scout way back in the olden days, before the earth’s crust had fully cooled, like the early sixties. My patrol would always win the monkey bridge competition at the Camp-o-Ree and I thought I knew just about every knot that a boy (scout) could ever need. Maybe so, but there are a ton of knots here that I didn’t know. And the app not only shows how to tie them in simple steps, it tells what the knots are good for and why one might be better than another for a particular purpose. So this comes personally endorsed by the former patrol leader of the Pioneer patrol, Troop 542, Quivera Council, Boy Scouts of America.
I love this app as much as I love camping 🏕🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
So, I’m a scout, and I’m struggling on knots and I’m trying to learn them easier, and my mom downloaded this app to help me on my knots. You can take rope with you on the go, and the app can help you teach them. One of my personal favorites is the Sheet Bend knot. Knots are very easy on this app because you can make the instructions faster or slower, you can make the knot upside down, and you can get a 360 degree view. I fell in love with this app so much I checked it out with my mom. If it wasn’t for this app, my life would be depressing, and miserable.
This app is severely undervalued - don’t tell them I said this, but I would’ve paid at least $5.00 for this. They couldn’t have done a better job building the app - it’s perfect. Keep in mind that there are hundreds of knots out there that aren’t included in this app (this app has about 126 knots at the time of this writing) but in their defense, it’d take years to build an app that included every knot in existence. All you military cats out there probably know how to tie a healthy portion of the knots they have in here, but if nothing else, this is a good refresher. If you’re a beginner with tying knots, this app will be the greatest teaching tool you’ll ever need. I’ve always been ridiculously lousy at tying knots...like I’ve had a couple people show me over and over how to tie certain knots, and I just couldn’t wrap my head around some of the techniques. With the 3D 360° views on each knot diagram, this will make you an expert in a matter of hours.
You should own this app
I struggled for years with the shame and inadequacy of not knowing how to tie proper knots. I found myself avoiding situations in which my sub par knotsmanship would be seen by others, and spent lots of money on bungie cords and ratchet tie downs to compensate. I never could learn from pictures and guides on the internet. This app has been a Godsend. I have been able to tie any knot I want with this and it even works with no service on your phone. The 3d models are awesome since you can see the knot at all stages from any angle.
Very practical, useful app
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.
Efficient and effective
The animation runs at adjustable speeds, so fast-forwarding through the “easy” parts and then slowing it back down, and having the option to pause, really make it user-friendly. Every knot profile links to other knots that have similar uses and has expanded my knowledge base. The additional feature of being able to add favorites makes it easy to find what I’m working on come practice time. Definitely worth money spent!
