Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 40° or maybe 90°? Or maybe you want to see what a Trilene knot or Constrictor knot looks like from the back? Use your finger to spin the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3D!
Choose from 118 different knots and see how they're tied in incredible detail. Watch the knot draw itself or use your finger to tie and untie the knot. Its easy to see where the virtual rope goes in and out and around. (Something about a rabbit and a hole and a tree right? ) Zoom in on the knot to get a closer look or flip it around for another perspective. Can your old school knot app do that?!

KNOTS 3D REVIEWS
Superb in every way - 5 Stars!
I'm a fairly handy guy (surgeon) and rely on several knots in my practice. Nevertheless I'm pretty hopeless at learning new knots and remembering them, even though I'm a sailor and do some fishing. Knots 3D is the answer. I love every aspect of the app.
Great App - 5 Stars!
I really like this app, I have 4 knot apps, and I use this one the most. As a firefighter rope skills is a must and this app helps keep me "knot prepared". The zoom and step through the knot using a finger gestures is real handy. The author updates this app with new knots often. I recommend this app.

Knot Your Average Guide to Knots (Well Done)
Knots 3D is brilliant! Within minutes of launching this app, I have tied a good number of knots which have eluded me when using static images of the same knots. The color contrast works nicely and the scalability and rotation features are immensely helpful.
I don't know how Knots 3D compares to other similar apps, but for my needs I cannot imagine needing anything other than this fine program. The developers should be commended for creating such a useful tool, especially one which is free to use and free of pop-up ads.
If you are just learning to tie knots, or are just in need of a refresher, I whole heartedly recommend getting Knots 3D right away.
Must have knot app!
This is truly an excellent application for learning knots. I have already used a number of the knots for day-to-day chores and also learned that knots I have used in the past are not secure, such as the square knot. The only recommendation I would make is to have a short definition section that describes the terminology, such as the difference between bends, hitches, etc. This will help the user to focus on the applicable knots to solve the problem at hand.
By Far the Best Knot App
This is by far the best illustrated and easiest to follow knot tying app. However, in the past, I still had to have a couple of other apps because there were some knots that Knots 3D didn't have. This has all changed with the recent addition of many more knots listed in the app. Now Knots 3D is the only knot app I need and I have deleted the others.
