Knot Guide 6.0--Best!
This is the BEST!!. Wonderful App for viewing and tying knots. (No, I don't know or work for the developers.) I love the physics of why knots work, but I'm lousy at remembering even the regular ones, so I've bought every app that looks good, and they're usually poorly illustrated, buggy, & confusing. The Winkpass developers are very responsive to requests and questions, and the app is both esthetically beautiful AND useful (I pulled out my iPhone at a picnic to figure which knots would hold 4 dogs of different sizes to one fence, with one piece of rope. It worked!, and the app's directions and illustrations are good enough to use while dealing with 4 happy, jumping dogs pulling on the rope I was tying. It's a good reference, and the iPad version is even prettier (and bigger, thus a little easier to follow). Solid, Pretty, easy UI. Very good job, Winkpass!
Serves its purpose
I've always wanted to know a few useful knots but have never really learned anything but a square knot. By having this app always in my phone & iPad, I'm finally learning a few of the essential knots that I wish I'd learned as a kid. The app is always available, it gives a brief and clear explanation of the knot's uses, it's pros and cons and then gives a clear visual step by step illustration of how to tie it. I'm going to be on a house boat for a week with very spotty cell coverage & I'll have access to this app & a thorough list of useful knots & how to tie them.
Very useful app.
Use this app all the time.
Even turned a few on to it to get themselves so they would quit bugging ME to tie things for them.
Only suggestion I would make is pertaining to being able to differentiate between which end of rope is on top, or below when trying to tie knots and bends. Sometimes it is hard to tell for someone with an older mobile device, or inadequate vision.
Other than that, best app I've used.
