Nice design, lacks features
The app looks nice and is laid out well, but needs more content.
It would be good to have a filter (e.g. knots that are good for casual, knots that are good for business, good for tall people, etc.) - which shouldn't be too hard since most of that info is already written in the knot information.
The app could do with a left-handed mode, as for lefties like myself, it's far easier to flip the tie around and do it the other way: again, that shouldn't be too hard, just flip the images.
Next, adding videos or animated images would be a great feature, and very helpful, too. Some ties have an image with an arrow pointing in a vague direction, and then the next image has the tie pointing in a different direction than you would expect.
Finally, an image of the final result would be just dandy. So, you know, I can tell if I actually tied the thing correctly -- or if I perhaps just created a new type of knot by accident :P
Short on realism
While I applaud this app's attempt to fill this style niche, this app needs REAL photos with the only variation being the knot, or it should have better, clearer, more ACCURATE illustrations. I don't need to see a shirt with lots of distracting 'shadow' lines! I need to see closer detail of what goes over and under. Also, it's absurd to have EVERY illustration show EXACTLY the OPPOSITE of what is being described (right is drawn as left and left is drawn as right). Inexcusable! ("Start with the long end on the right" is shown with long end on shirt left.) it would also be helpful to show an actual picture or at least an accurate illustration of a representative end result in the category picture. History of the knot is a nice touch.
Needs pics of each style
Nice app, polished look with large selection of knots. Missing some essentials; particularly actual photos of the knots. Appreciate the written descriptions and suggestions regarding what the each knot goes best with. I have another app called TieRight that shows actual photo perspective looking down in addition to illustrations looking straight on. It also uses the camera as a quick mirror. Both great ideas. Unfortunately it has a smaller knot selection, briefer descriptions and also no straight on reference photos. If these two apps merged and added gave actual photos of the knots, so you could see what you were tying, that'd be great!
