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.

As a former Boy Scout, sailor and someone who has spent a lot of time thinking about how to teach people how to tie knots, this is a truly great tool for learning and teaching knots. You can see the knot from every angle. The animations are clear and the speed can be controlled. The color choices make the illustrations very clear. You can also view static images of the animations by moving your finger left and right across the image. I especially appreciate the accompanying history, uses, related knots and safety precautions. They are clear and concise. It’s a lot easier to learn to tie knots using this app than it is using Ashley’s Book of Knots. I have recommended it to my friends, family and anyone who expresses an interest in knot-tying.

Please take note

Why is the overhand knot posted repeatedly under different name?

Teaching knots at camp and they just weren’t getting it. Passed my phone around with this app and they were tying the knots in minutes. I’ll not take it personal, it’s a generation thing.

Best way to pass the time

I have started using this app to help phase out the compulsive social media need from my life. It’s such a great way to pass that same time, but instead learning every new knot you can possibly think of. I will now often sit for long stretches at a time with my section of paracord practicing, and it’s therapeutic like any craft would be. The UI is easy to navigate and the 3D diagrams make it completely painless to learn. A must for anyone interested in camping, boating, hunting, or just about anything that vaguely involves a cord or rope. If that matches you in any way don’t go without this app!

This is a fantastic App. I am new to know tying and have bought 2 books on the subject. But this is by far the superior way to learn how to tie knots. Downloaded to your phone so it works as long as you have battery life. This is a essential app for anyone interested in outdoors survival hunting fishing and so much more 5 out of 5

Animation showing in knots is awesome

If you are looking to get into fishing and wondering how to tie knots, this app is absolutely amazing. I noticed a knot that I wanted to tie, the Royal Polaris knot (RP knot) was not listed. I contacted support and they got right back to me letting me know they would look into it. You have to love app developers that are in it for the right reasons!

Knotts 3D

If you used to have a sharper knowledge of making knots and need a little help getting back to it, then this is the app for you. You’ll not only refresh what you already knew but you’ll probably do as I did and learn quite a few new and handy knots. Chers.

Nice scout tool

This app gave my first year Scout BSA group a fire to learn knot tying.
By D H Daniel

The best knots tying app I’ve ever used.

Hands down the best knots tying app. It’s highly enjoyable to use and you can slow down the tutorial and even scroll through all the moves frame by frame. It’s seriously an awesome app.
