Ratings and Reviews


Tony Heyes

A first class App with great diagrams.



A comprehensive guide to how to make just about any useful knot with colour pictures and step-by-step diagrams. The iPad app is far superior to the iPhone app, with an excellent menu structure, friendly interface and first-class presentation. This is a superb application and a must for anyone who occasionally has a need to toe a knot. It is one app that I will make good use of. Thank you to the developer.



Great app,very useful
