Or maybe you want to see what a Bowline 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 127 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?!

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 four 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.

  • Great visualisation

    App developer responded same day for suggested knot additions. Love the app and how it visualizes the knot being tied. Would love to see alternative ways to tie knots too. For example there are at least three ways to tie an alpine butterfly. Maybe show a few options? Either way I still love the app.
  • Best knot teacher ever!

    I have been in scouting (and tying and learning knots)since 1972 that being said; this is the best and easiest way I have ever found (other than person to person) for learning knots.
  • Excellent

    When I purchased this app, I really had no need for it, but I knew the day would come when I would. I fly light aircraft with my friend and we tie it down when we’re away from the plane, even if it’s a short amount of time. I needed a knot that’s strong but easy to untie. The bowline knot did the trick. The app is well done and the animated instructions are excellent.
  • Excellent App to learn and understand knots!!!

    I have had this app for a while and still use it years later- by far the best way to learn and refresh yourself-- on top of them continually updating!! Try to find another knot app that does this! They also strike the right balance of Visual and categories etc. Great app- thank you!
  • Efficient and effective

    The animation runs at adjustable speeds, so fast-forwarding through the “easy” parts and then slowing it back down, and having the option to pause, really make it user-friendly. Every knot profile links to other knots that have similar uses and has expanded my knowledge base. The additional feature of being able to add favorites makes it easy to find what I’m working on come practice time. Definitely worth money spent!
  • A perfect “cheat sheet” for sailors
