More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Tie, untie and rotate 90+ 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.

DESCRIPTION
-----------
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 92 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?!

    Great App!

    As a professional pilot i love this app! The one problem I saw was that the animations are a bit too fast. I wrote the developer, received an answer in one day, and was told that a speed slider has been added already for most apps, and will be out soon for Nook. Once this is done the app will be perfect!

    fantastatic app for learning knots

    the 3d demos and ability to enlarge and slow down the demo makes learning easy and fun. The descriptions are informatiive. The app works flawlessly so far. I've already used 3 of the knots in pratical situations around the house and kennel. Knowing what knot to use and how to try it is a handy skill.

    Great app for teaching knots. I use it to help scouts and they can also practice on their own. The ability to pause the video and to look at the knots from different views really adds to understanding how to make the knots.

    Well done reference app for the outdoorsman. Many knots, speed control on the knot animation so you can slow it down. Highly recommend.

    Great app...

    I LOVE this app.. Each knot is drawn at whatever speed you are comfortable with. The 3D allows you to see if you have done it correctly at different angles.
    If you macrame, you will get a lot of use out of this....

    Wonderful app!

    Just a great app. Go buy a length of rope try some of these knots. You'll be surprised how interesting knots can be. Love the historical notes also.

    Excellent, instructive & informative

    If you know the importance of using the right knot, but have trouble remembering how to tie them, this is THE app. Animation & 3D make it absolutely clear. The new text descriptions are very interesting. It's fun to browse. Great app!
