Choose from 136 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.

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.

Great App

This is one of the best Knots apps that I have seen. The illustrations are very colorful and easy to follow. As a person in the medical field, I hope they would include some knots and sutures types in different wound closure techniques. Thank You!

Wonderful App But A minor Issue

Everything is prefect, the only bothering problem is you can’t step back a short time span when you watch knot fastening and should watch the video until its end and replay it again to rewatch the missed span. *** Oh, I got it how to step back by touching the video back and forth. I correct my asterisks to 5 star. 😊 Thank to its developers 🙏🙏🙏. It was tricky honestly 😉

Easy to learn and very, very useful!

At 71 years of age, I learned more knots in a month than I learned in my previous 70 years! It’s the best! I can tie an elastic cord around my reading glasses with a constrictor knot, where before I used about 6 or 7 grannies!
By I'd rather walk or even crawl

What a great app. If you can learn knots with this you’ll never going to

I Slow motion from every angle possible

Knots 3D is "knot" beatable! Even more knots!

Knots 3D is magnificent. The graphics are beautiful and clear. Many knots are represented, with comments on use and quality. You WILL enjoy Knots 3D if you care about knots at all. Get it! The latest version is even more beautiful!

Great App

I use this app all the time for different situation. Mostly for fishing, however, it can be used for camping or loading stuff on a car. I love the visual graph that you can speed up or slow down.

Couldn’t Ask For More

Because this app works offline, it’s amazing. I say that because the interface is a bit cheap, but I don’t care because it has so many knots to learn, which I can access anywhere, which is appropriate for the content. I’ve tried learning knots from videos I find on YouTube which isn’t that great when I need to repeat a particular step. The visuals is this app are awesome, and the interactive interface for repeating steps is awesome. I was very surprised at how thought through all of the features are.

Ultimate Knot App...!!!

This knot app is simply incredible. It has every knot I’ve wanted to use and many, many more. What I like: 1. The animated tying of each knot which can be viewed from the front AND the back. 2. The ability to speed up or slow down the animation. 3. The ability to view in full screen. 4. All knots are downloaded to your phone so that an internet connection is not needed to view. 5. The graphics are incredibly clear. 6. A history and typical usage is included with each knot. 7. Clear and intuitive interface. This is a must have app for hikers, campers, explorers, truckers, etc. Well done and thank you to the developer!

This is a great app for learning how to tie knots, bends and lashings. I would highly recommend this app for anyone that needs to learn this skill or just wants to expand their knowledge of it.
