Description

Used by military, arborists, fishermen, firefighters, climbers and boy and girl scouts the world over, Knots 3D will quickly teach you how to tie even the most difficult knot. With more than 130 knots, Knots 3D will be your go-to reference! Grab some rope and have fun!
- Included in Scouting Magazine's "Ultimate List of Scouting Apps"
- Featured in iOS Today, GQ Magazine, Boating Magazine, Guy Harvey Magazine and many other well known print and online and media.
- #1 Reference App in 75 Countries
Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 40° or maybe 90°? Or maybe you want to see what a Bowline knot or Constrictor knot looks like from the back? Use your finger to spin the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3D!
Choose from 131 different knots and see how they're tied in incredible detail. Watch the knot draw itself or use your finger to tie and untie the knot. Its easy to see where the virtual rope goes in and out and around. (Something about a rabbit and a hole and a tree right? ) Zoom in on the knot to get a closer look or flip it around for another perspective. Can your old school knot app do that?!

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 4 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.

Useful and enjoyable

I’ve found this useful for building garden structures out of bamboo. The camping knots come in handy there. Also used it to entertain children and to pass the time on long train journeys. I enjoy trying out knots I’ve never done before.

Best knot app out there

Have had this app for a few years and it’s still being improved upon. Any Boy Scout, girl guide, soldier, airman, sailor, etc. should be using this app to practice their knots proficiency.
An outstanding app, well presented and thought out. Very affordable too.

Just brilliant

This is not only the best knot tying tutor you could ever wish to find in an app but it is definitely one of the very best learning apps I have ever come across.
I’ve had this for years now and the gradual adjustments they have made to the presentation have consistently improved from what was already a very clear tutorial. The information about the knots and their uses is so well directed and animated it’s almost worth a loud round of applause.
Not only that but they have added knots as time has gone on so there are now loads of solutions for any scenario. Take my word for it, this is the dogs doodads..

Perfect! Fabulous! Brilliant

Wow! I think the title shows what I think of this App - It’s stunning. I love every aspect of it, and for me, it covers every aspect you need to learn how to tie all these knots. I LOVE the fact that it divides the knots into Categories of where they are most used.
As an occasional ship’s ‘boy’ (of the feminine variety) this perfect little App will help me feel a little more useful on board. ⛵️

Another 5* review!

Kudos to the developer for a wonderful little app, it’s a really useful, simple and clean app and being able to slow down the animation down really helps in making it easier to follow the steps to achieve the knot. Brilliant, thanks!

Perfect!

This app is fantastic, and is the clearest guide to tying knots I’ve ever seen. It’s a really useful, practical guide.
And if you don’t need a practical guide, buy it for the fascinating knot animations: with a touch of your finger, magical ropes will be writhing and weaving around your phone screen. It’s surprisingly addictive and completely delightful!

Absolutely brilliant app

Really useful. 3D videos of how to tie each knot. It couldn't be clearer. You even have control over the speed and viewpoint of the tying process. A full description of the knot and it's uses, together with links to similar knots included. Knots can be viewed by type e.g. Knots for fishing, climbing etc. Should be included in any masterclass of how to build an app. The developer must have a PHD in ergonomics.

This is invaluable to anyone with either an interest in knots or more practically for anyone that struggles to follow pictorial explanations of how to do knots. The 3D animations are excellent.
It is oddly compulsive and I find myself perusing knots looking at the things for no particular reason!
Well worth the money.

Superb app

Really good graphics so you can see animation of knot tying at varying speeds and rotate to see from other side etc. More knots than anyone could ever need included. Agree with earlier review that glossary of terms would be very helpful. Maybe have a 'best for' category too as with so many similar knots I can't remember them all. Highly recommend to everyone.

This is the app if you want to revise your repertoire of "knots" or to add to it. Well illustrated in moving 3D you will soon be able to copy the moves needed. I taught knots for years, and learned some new ones from this app in minutes. Say no more.

Just keeps growing. An invaluable resource for so many hobbies. I'm a scouter and a recreational tree climber and this is so good to show to adults and kids alike to teach them their knots. Brilliant.
