Complete Knot List at: KNOTS 3D REVIEWS ---------------------- Superb in every way - 5 Stars! 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.

  • Great knot teaching app!

    By KashiZeke
    Made learning some of these complex knots easy, very useful for all the off road camping I do!
  • Boy Scouts.

    By scoutingdilts
    Perfect for teaching scout knots.
  • Missing just one thing!

    By Sauceboss19
    I would really appreciate it if this app showed all of their knots tightened. For most knots you pull on the working end, but it isn’t always clear.
  • Useful

    By Murray511
    This app is good. Five stars.
  • You should own this app

    By JustinS71
    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.
  • Best knot tying App ever

    By Jim$7
    This app is great, very good, covers a wide Variety of knots and the animation is wonderful. Recommend it highly. However the last update has a bug. When you select the star for favorites it has you to rate the app or no thanks. In is stuck in a loop. Please fix the bug.
  • A must have app for knot enthusiasts and beginners alike

    By BigJoeyStud
    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.
  • Excellent app!

    By iceleftd
