Customer Reviews

Animated knots review

Animated knots has a good dictionary of knots. However, the animations are not useful in that as soon as the animation is over, the app jumps back to the knot list. There is no way to compare the knot you have tied with the animated result. If you wanted to repeat the animation, you would need to reselect it from the list in order to run it again, with the same result; jumps back to the list rather than allowing you to view the tied knot. Would not recommend this app at this point.
