- #1 Knot Reference in 75 Countries*- Included in Scouting Magazine's "Ultimate List of Scouting Apps" and featured in the Trek Tech section of the Sep/Oct 2012 issue.
DESCRIPTION-----------Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 40Â° or maybe 90Â°? 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 87 different knots and see how they're tied in incredible detail. Watch the knot draw itself and pause the animation 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?!
Product Features and Functions - Learn to tie 87 unique knots - Localized knot names listed for: Dutch, French, German, Italian, Korean, Russian and Spanish!- Browse knots by category, type, favorites or view the entire library - Watch knots tie themselves and pause or adjust the speed of the animation at any time - Rotate knots in 360 degree, 3D views to study them from any angle - Zoom in on a knot to see it in greater detail - Interact with the knot on screen via mult-touch gestures such as pinch-to-zoom and swipe to tie/untie. - Completely self contained -- No internet or special install permissions required.- Installable to SD Card
Each 3D knot has detailed information including tying pointers, strength and reliability, structural info, and Ashley reference numbers (ABoK) and occasionally the history behind the knot. Knots are listed with their common synonyms or localized equivalents. Knot names for Dutch, French, German, Italian, Korean, and Russian are shown.
The knots are arranged by both Category (Boating, Climbing, Fishing, Scouting, etc) and Type (Bend, Loop, Stopper, etc). If you find a knot you like or want to come back to later, add it to your Favorites list for quick reference.

KNOTS 3D REVIEWS ---------------------- Great App - â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜… 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.
Very Useful - â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜… Great guide for knot how to's. 3D ability puts it to the top compared to others. Nice job dev's.
Nicely Done - â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜… This app is really nicely done. I actually don't have much need to learn or use knots, but I am so impressed with the presentation in this app that it motivates me to want to learn them, just so I can use it. Good job!
