Great Information for the Novice Knoter
on 23 February 2014
Oddly despite having been at sea for decades, I don't know many knots. Being an engineer we use slings and chain blocks. However I figured that I'd like to be at least competent at a few more familiar knots, hence this little app.
Firstly, when you download the app you don't download the knot information. When you choose a knot to learn you select it from the dropdown in the app and it then downloads this specific knot to your device. At first I thought I'd been slightly cheated, but in reality it means you don't download a lot of images and info that you might not want onto a device with a small memory.
The knots are divided up into categories which makes selection easy. When you have then downloaded the specific knot of choice the instructions are clear and easy to see with step by step instructions. Very good indeed.
Overall a genuinely useful app if you want to learn a few knots.
