Product Description

Tie, untie and rotate 100+ knots with your finger in 3D!
Knots 3D, our top-rated 3D knot app, will give you a whole new perspective on knots! Grab a piece of rope and have fun!

- #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.

Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 40° or maybe 90°? 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 101 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?!

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. Localized for over dozen languages including: English, Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish!

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.


KNOT LIST
------------------
Knots 3D includes 101 Knots with common ones such as the Bowline and Sheet Bend along with more complicated knots such as the Monkey’s Fist and Jury Mast Knot. The entire list of knots can be found here:

Installed on a Samsung Galaxy S5 with no issues.

Tying a good knot can be a life saver, can save you a great deal of frustration and can stop your underpants from flying around the motorway when your luggage slips off the roof rack of your car!

There are currently 94 knots to choose from and no doubt more will be added. You can view the complete list, recently added, view by category, by type or keyword search.

When you find one you get some info on the knot and it is knotted up in an animation with very good graphics. You can slow the animation down, flip it and pause it. When drawn you can rotate the knot to get a different angle of view. This also supports a full screen view.

It is very easy to follow along with different colours used if tying 2 ropes together. I never got the chance to be a boy scout, so I am trying to fill the void in my live!

This is brilliant, the presentation, the layout, the cross references
The app is a fine example for other developers to follow.
To follow step by step visuals, freeze frame forwards backwards
and from any angle is a plus for any enthusiast.
For anyone wanting to learn how to tie the knot this is the app.
Highly recommended.

What can I say? If you want to tie a knot, this is better than having your own scout master to tell you how to do it. I used it a couple of times including the complex monkey fist and this app makes success guaranteed. Nothing fancy here, its straight to the point knot making with a helpfull description of what its usually used for. As long as the knot you want is included, you can't fail if you use this app.

Very clever little app, but little is the word!
Disappointed with the content but very pleased with the grafics.
If it was expanded to include more knots it would rate much higher.

I was really struggling to tie the perfect knot to stop my victims from breaking free and running off. Too many times I had to bludgeon them to death before I could fully carry out my plans. But now! With knots 3D my struggles are a thing of the past, and my victims are are lot worse. I have finally found the perfect knots to stop them from running and ruining everything. And it's so easy with the animations showing you all you need. My Friday evening's have just become a lot more enjoyable.

Thanks Knots 3D!
