What's New in Version 4.0.2
Fixed a bug that caused certain iPads to crash when adding knots to Favorites.
Combines the best of boat, scout and para cord knots
Glad I bought this app. Worried it was not worth the $5, but after spending over $50 for ebooks on para cord, marine knots, and other apps, I'm really glad I took the plunge. The animation is first rate on my iPad. The color is magnificent and the knot list exceeds comprehensive.
I forget how to tie knots when I am out and about. Now I have the whole kit and kaboudal with me where ever I go. Can't say enough good things about this app.
Best knot app
This is my fave knot app! It has tons of knots, and the pictures are easy to follow. My favorite thing about this app over others, is that it demonstrates hand wrapping and one handed tying methods. The categories are well laid out. With this and Knots3d, I can tie any knot.
Knots3d is also a very good knot app, but only shows the knot being tied from the end, this can make some knots like the alpine butterfly, more confusing than they need be.
By Far the Best
I was looking for a guide to rock climbing knots and bought the top 5 knot apps. This one is simply the best. The instruction is better, the information about each knot is better, and the creators did their homework. There are even links to testing done on holding power and reliability. This is the only knot app you need.
