Grab some rope and have fun! - Included in Scouting Magazine's "Ultimate List of Scouting Apps" - Featured in iOS Today, GQ Magazine, Boating Magazine, Guy Harvey Magazine and many other well known print and online and media. * - #1 Reference App in 75 Countries ** Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 40° or maybe 90°? Or maybe you want to see what a Bowline 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 121 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. (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?!

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 4 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 per



  • Why can’t I give it 6 stars??

    Best app ever, regardless of topic!!
  • Extraordinary app. Beautiful, clear 3D graphics.

    By Bike-Boy
    This app is extraordinary. Graphics and 3D models are crystal clear. It allows the user to control the animation and 3D knot orientation, not just watch a video run by. Includes written histories and uses, and references to related knots. If only all apps were like this...
  • Great for learning knots

    By Stever777
    Great 3D models for tying knots, along with rotatable animations and manual speed control makes it a great learning tool.
  • Knotty Affair

    I love this app so much, it’s competing with family time and I don’t know how I got by without it!
  • Knot for everyone

    By Jackson126
    This app is my go to knot tying guide. The animations are the best and quite complete. I also like the explanations that go along with each knot and how it would be used.

    There is no compromise in my willingness to use Knots 3D. I Love how I can control every aspect necessary to follow through w/ the tutorial. This app doesn’t distract one from tying knot and more knots, etc, ect. Thanks 3D knots!
  • Great way to stay up on your knots...

    By @*&%$#@
    I would like to have more control over the orientation of the knots so that I can position the knot the way I see it when I am tying it, but that is a minor quibble. This is still an excellent app for learning and remembering your knots and I do a quick review almost daily in preparation for upcoming fishing trips. I have submitted a knot that is not in the fishing repertoire, I hope it will be included in an update soon...
  • Beautiful !
