Complete Knot List at: 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 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.



  • What’s Knot to like!

    By WryRhino1
    Downloaded this app recently to learn some knots and help my daughter work on knots for Girl Scouts. It really helps visualize difficult knots that older poorly illustrated step by steps can’t show well! Great job!
  • Knot Ordinary

    By Leero2
    I reference this app all the time. The updates get better and the 3D feature is helpful, worth the money!
  • I am a Boy Scout

    By BSA year 1
    I am a Boy Scout and the knots are not always clear or easy to tie but this helps a lot for teaching or reviewing the knots.
  • This is handy

    By Rogueturd
    Super handy app for when I comes to different knots!
  • Good app!

    By It'sCorpsBoy!!!
    It’s a good app, I’ve learned a lot. Please add the triple bowline though.
  • Very useful!

    By JoeHflorida
    The only knot app you need. Grateful that this app is available.
  • Perfection

    By Will44512
    Perfect app for those who are not too great learning those challenging knots and it is great you are able to rewind fast forward slow down etc. to where you would like to achieve the ability to learn how to create and even take apart the knot. You learn what types and even after serving many years in the military I learned quite a bit and this is one of those great tools everyone should get because when your out and just for example may need to tie something down to the top of your car you will need to know a strong knot that will not just loosen and this app is the one. For sure...
  • An app my mother would love

    By App user 1955
    I grew up tying knots with my mother while camping and on the boat. My dad was useless in the knot department. The animations are truly excellent as are the categories for finding the right knot.
  • Splices

    By pearson4sail
    Would you consider including splices -3strand, double braid in the future?

    This is such a useful. It is fully portable and so much more instructive than other publications.
