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.

    Learn cool Knots and see it in 3D. Really good app that is updated often. Make a monkey knot already! Use YouTube as an additional resource for finger placement which is many times the best way to go expert. It’s help make me an fishing knit wizard. Additional info on each knot in the app is a nice touch.

    I’ve been fascinated with knots since I was a Cub Scout, some 60+ years ago. I still have my first Boy Scout Manual and the only hand notation, in the table of contents, is the word Knots. That’s first thing I wanted to learn, how to tie a good knot. Knots 3D is the first application I bought, when I got my first iPhone, many years ago. I can’t give you a date, but as I recall, it was around 2011 and there were only about 70 knots in the application, at that time. Now, there’s 126 and I expect that number will continue to slowly increase. I have a large, hard bound copy, of the Ashley Book of Knots and it is an excellent reference, but for most of my needs, for the last several years, Knots 3D has been my go to source for learning, and teaching others, how to tie a good knot. I absolutely love the 3D renderings, in Knots 3D and I consider it to be the very best way to learn a knot. I have gifted this app to many of my friends and family members and will continue to do so. So, if you want to learn how to tie a good knot, in my opinion this is the best source you’ll ever find. TinTexas

    I use ropes quite a bit for hauling and camping with boy scouts. I love this app! I can tie knots correctly now and also create a list of favorites for reference later. Great app!

    I just loaded this app. Played with it for five minutes and have to wonder, is this one of those to good to be true moments? Why did someone create this app. It’s beautiful. There’s no add super easy to navigate. Lots of 3D knots to choose from. Something has to happen. It’s just to nice to be free.
