Choose from 139 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. Its easy to see where the virtual rope goes in and out and around.

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.

  • Excellent

    By mitchell in jp
    This app is outstanding. The animations are beautiful, the choice of knots to include shows excellent taste, and the informational content is authoritative.
  • No update

    By K. Mulvaney
    I have tried to get an update on this app. It been two years and I can't update because it will not let me change the ID. I purchased but it shows a different ID and I can't change it . it's on my app with my password. I'm aggravated I got feedback
  • Great knot app

    By Sdoe777
    This has knots other apps don’t. Love it.
  • Does NOT teach effective knot tying methods

    By phelixthekat
    The graphics look great but the app does NOT teach you HOW to tie knots. It only traces a knot. The person then only knows how to TRACE the knot rather than know how to efficiently TIE a knot. For example to tie a figure eight, it’s just an overhand knot with two twists instead of one. The bowline can also be done in less than 3 seconds but you wouldn’t know how to do that with this app. Do not try to follow how this app traces a knot. It is NOT how you tie knots. I’d recommend sticking to YouTube videos or a book on tying knots. This app is only good on showing what knots are but don’t attempt to learn HOW TO TIE knots from this app. You’ll most likely use an inefficient method in tying the knot unless you can figure out a better way.
  • Not that many knots...

    By Ricardo Liquet
    I payed for it hoping that i would never need another reference, but if your not a climber or fisher this would be just the basic ones. I needed more styles not just for seaman and climbing/rapeling buts its ok still the app its well made tho
  • Great little app

    By Ackzaman

  • Good

    By Bruce #????

  • One of my favorite apps

    By DaveXXIV
    This app is very well done and very practical as everyone has a need to tie knots so they might as well be good ones!
  • Great App

    By Whazupdocg
    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!
