Used by arborists, fishermen, firefighters, climbers, military and boy scouts the world over, Knots 3D will quickly teach you how to tie even the most difficult knot. With more than 120 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 121 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?! Product Features and Functions - Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch (Universal App) - High res graphics with photo-realistic rope textures - Learn to tie 121 unique knots - Watch knots tie themselves and pause or adjust the speed of the animation at any time - Rotate knots in 360 degree, 3D views to study them from any angle - Zoom in on a knot to see it in greater detail - Interact with the knot on screen via multi-touch gestures such as pinch-to-zoom and swipe to tie/untie. - Browse knots by category or search by name - Completely self contained -- No internet required! - 100% localized for over a dozen languages: English, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish! Each 3D knot has detailed reference information including tying pointers, strength and reliability, structural info, and Ashley reference numbers (ABoK) and occasionally the history behind the knot. The knots are arranged by both Category (Boating, Climbing, Fishing, Scouting, etc) and Type (Bend, Loop, Stopper, etc).

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 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. * ** As per

  • Appreciative beginner

    By Pindapoo
    I’m just learning about knots and this app is by far the best teaching aid I have found. Far superior to any book on the subject. Seeing the knots tied in 3D is extremely helpful!! Thank you!
  • Very practical, useful app

    By Night426
    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.
  • Fake 3D...

    By JTown1986
    I assumed they were using 3D models rendered real-time so I could look at each step from any angle and rotate freely. Nope. They just pre-render into 2D animations and you only get a per-rendered 3D rotation view of finished knot, and only across one axis. Which is bizarre, because they obviously have the 3D models and animations already so it’s strange that they put in extra effort to make a less functional approach that uses more disk space on our phones.
  • Awesome

    Such a great and quick way to learn numerous knots for any type of situation!
  • Love it

    I've had forever now and still love it!!!!!
  • A must for Boy Scouts!

    By TVC Guy
    I have had a few apps such ad this, but they always fell short on knots used by Boy Scouts. This app has them all, and demonstrates it masterfully!
  • Excellent Knot learning tool

    By Beautiful Horror
    Great for learning knots, wish that you could add names for knots. Some knots have multiple names. Can be time consuming to find a certain knot that uses another name.
  • Wicked good app
