PREVIOUS VERSION REVIEWS:
5 stars - The Coolest Ever!
Easy to understand and use, very informative with clear instructions on how to makes hundreds of knots step by step, divided by categories for easy navigation, truly inspiring and beautiful knots. Enjoyable to just watch, practical and relevant to learn. This is the second App enticing enough for me to actually buy.
5 stars - New to knots
This is my first review. I would pay twice the amount for this app. I would give it ten stars if I could. It can be done step by step unlike others I've seem that you have replay a dozen times to get the same results. Thank you for you time and effort.
What's New in Version 4.0.3
Fixed a bug that prevented saving favorites on some iPhones running iOS 8.1.1 or newer.
Fixed typo in terminology to show 'bend' rather then 'bight'.
Most Valuable App you could own
I have had this app for sometime now, and it has been more handy than any other. It is easy to use, and has helped me more than once. Knowing knots is something everyday be should know, especially preppers, campers, hikers, etc.
This app has five stars for ease of use, and usefulness!
Worth its weight in gold
Clean, clear, and flexible. The "flip" feature is particularly helpful for those of us who learned a know in a particular direction but need a reminder, or for those cases when the situation demands the knot be reversed. Best app I've found for knots. Thanks
I like knots, and I really like this app. The descriptions are useful, and it's easy to follow the pictures. I use this so often that I gave it to my extended family for Christmas last year - and they loved it as well.
