Ratings and Reviews
Best $5 I’ve ever spent on an app
Buy this App. We have a sport fishing boat in Alaska - which we use continuously for 3 - 5 day trips, 20 to 60 miles out of town/on the ocean. Our need to tie and splice various lines is non stop. This fantastic app has made it easy for any of us on the boat to become expert at just the right knot for any occasion. Brilliant in its simplicity and presentation (and no nonsense explanations and comparisons).
Five bucks wasted
The animation is choppy and poorly done. The app is a total waste of a lot of money. I was robbed. This designer is not a teacher. I am not knot pleased.
Even better on iPad
As a longtime user of the iPhone version I was very glad to see the release of an iPad app. This has the same high quality graphics, animations, and knot information you've come to expect from Grog, but now larger! I especially like the usability and navigation of the app in landscape mode.
If you want the best resource for learning to tie knots this is the app for you. I know knot experts that love Animated Knots by Grog, but it's especially invaluable for someone like me who does not find themselves dealing with knots often enough to memorize the various ones and how to utilize them, let alone tie them! This app comes to the rescue each time!
