W5TGB - The best way to learn a new knot!
I’ve been fascinated with knots since I was a Cub Scout, some 60+ years ago. I still have my first Boy Scout Manual and the only hand notation, in the table of contents, is the word Knots. That’s first thing I wanted to learn, how to tie a good knot.
Knots 3D is the first application I bought, when I got my first iPhone, many years ago. I can’t give you a date, but as I recall, it was around 2011 and there were only about 70 knots in the application, at that time. Now, there’s 126 and I expect that number will continue to slowly increase. I have a large, hard bound copy, of the Ashley Book of Knots and it is an excellent reference, but for most of my needs, for the last several years, Knots 3D has been my go to source for learning, and teaching others, how to tie a good knot. I absolutely love the 3D renderings, in Knots 3D and I consider it to be the very best way to learn a knot. I have gifted this app to many of my friends and family members and will continue to do so.
So, if you want to learn how to tie a good knot, in my opinion this is the best source you’ll ever find.
ktmfactoryrider - I Can-Knot tell a lie, This is the best App for Knot-heads!
I really love this application. I've owned this since 2012 and they have done nothing but made it better. It really is the best application to learn about different knots and how to tie them. Because of the ability to slow down and speed up the actual building of the knot, even if you're not very fast at tying knots you can keep up with the example. It also has examples of knots that you really can use and you want to use. Sailors need to know this information and this is the best place to get it, also it you have ever tied down stuff in a trailer, you need it too! I have built almost every knot listed but there are a couple that I still can't tie but it's no fault of the app. 😊 When I first got this it had about forty knots, now there are over one-hundred and twenty. But don't take it from me, just take a look at the reviews for this application. I don't remember ever seeing a program with reviews like this, I mean this baby really rocks!
thepopeswife09 - THE Best Knotting App
I'm a macramè artist, and while I'm proficient with all the knots I "need" for this purpose, I'm also fascinated by all the practical and safety uses of knots. Despite being staunch that "I-will-not-pay-for-apps", the solid reviews and impressive preview images prompted me to take a chance and fork out the $1.99 for this one. After purchasing, I am far more impressed than I thought possible. The history, practical uses, alternate names, and especially the incredible interactive 3-D graphic animation make it totally worth every penny. I especially love that I can control the speed of the animation. Highly recommend, even to those with only a casual interest in knot tying (but is an incredible resource for the more serious ones as well.) Five thumbs up. 👍👍👍👍👍
bb906 - Great!
As a former Boy Scout, sailor and someone who has spent a lot of time thinking about how to teach people how to tie knots, this is a truly great tool for learning and teaching knots. You can see the knot from every angle. The animations are clear and the speed can be controlled. The color choices make the illustrations very clear. You can also view static images of the animations by moving your finger left and right across the image. I especially appreciate the accompanying history, uses, related knots and safety precautions. They are clear and concise. It’s a lot easier to learn to tie knots using this app than it is using Ashley’s Book of Knots. I have recommended it to my friends, family and anyone who expresses an interest in knot-tying.
Lavaca Kid - The Holy Grail of Knot-Tying References
Throughout my 40-year career as a full-time outdoor writer/photojournalist I have written, photographed and illustrated dozens of "how-to" magazine stories, feature sidebars and columns relevant to the tying and application of the great many specialized knots essential to fishing, boating, camping and more.
My peers and I have wistfully imagined an app like this for decades. Now that it's a reality, it's all that we hoped it to be and more.
The variable-speed animated illustrations portray a formerly challenging process with a clarity that is far above and beyond anything I and my friends in the outdoor press could ever have visualized.
Five stars and an appreciative tip of the old fishing cap to those who conceptualized and created this innovative, easy-to-use game-changer of an app.
TEEMACK1219 - Easiest knot app
Just download the app and go! Unlike other knot apps, this one is ready to use when you open it. Other app, you have individually download each knot which can be a pain (especially if your say, out in the woods and have no internet). All the knots are free, so you you don’t have to “upgrade to the pro version” to get the knot you need (I personally believe that all app that that do that should be obligated to call themselves the lite version). The animation is smooth and you can control the speed.
Does it have as many knots as other apps? No. But it’s beautifully designed, works offline, easy to use and free.
Not-a-free-app-at-all - Awesome for reminding me at camp!!
This app is awesome! It doesn’t use phone data so knot info is always available on your phone, even out in the forest where there’s no signal.
Knots are easy to find even if you don’t know the name.
This app has never bothered me in any way...sometimes a good app can have a bothersome flaw.
This app is awesome in every way!!!
I do wish that there was a game feature to it. So if you have a group of people on a rainy day at camp, or even all alone, you can:
Select a category of knots, all knots, or favorite knots;
Each person has a piece of rope, a suitable object to tie around, a ring or carabiner, and a stick(toggle);
Someone presses the ‘Start Game’ Button and a random knot from the selected list of knots appears on the screen - maybe there could be an option to include or exclude a picture of the finished knot;
Everyone attempts to tie the random knot;
Keep score however you want (I don’t expect a scoring system to be determined by the app designer);
Have fun and learn knots!!!
BigJoeyStud - A must have app for knot enthusiasts and beginners alike
Firstly, I’d like to give credit to the developer, Dave. I emailed Dave with suggestions and a few questions that I had. His response was prompt, thorough, and informative.
Now on to the app itself:
The animations are superior to other apps.
The allowance of viewing the knot tying process from fully invertible, 360 degree, full range-variable speed rotations including the ability to forward and reverse at will is top-notch! Great UI.
The relative ease at which the end user is able to accomplish the above mentioned features are just a few reasons why I'm glad that I purchased this app.
CDiAKing - Best way to pass the time
I have started using this app to help phase out the compulsive social media need from my life. It’s such a great way to pass that same time, but instead learning every new knot you can possibly think of. I will now often sit for long stretches at a time with my section of paracord practicing, and it’s therapeutic like any craft would be. The UI is easy to navigate and the 3D diagrams make it completely painless to learn. A must for anyone interested in camping, boating, hunting, or just about anything that vaguely involves a cord or rope. If that matches you in any way don’t go without this app!
Dogratty - Excellent Utility!
Fire Dep’t instructor; Kayaking; two activities where right knots may be life saving & prevent injuries. Knowledge is critical!
This app keeps my skills sharp, renewing & improving on the go! Presentation is key, Knots 3D has been a great resource I open often to review, learn, practice!!
From newbies (probies) to experts this app is perfect!
Fast program, great graphics - there’s no other apps approach Knots 3D. I have books, other apps but this one is on front page of my phone for ready and frequent access.
And it has versions of popular knots no one else bothers to show but are often better applications.
RussJones67220 - A knot for every purpose
I was a Boy Scout way back in the olden days, before the earth’s crust had fully cooled, like the early sixties. My patrol would always win the monkey bridge competition at the Camp-o-Ree and I thought I knew just about every knot that a boy (scout) could ever need. Maybe so, but there are a ton of knots here that I didn’t know. And the app not only shows how to tie them in simple steps, it tells what the knots are good for and why one might be better than another for a particular purpose. So this comes personally endorsed by the former patrol leader of the Pioneer patrol, Troop 542, Quivera Council, Boy Scouts of America.
The Moon Monster - I love this app as much as I love camping 🏕🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
So, I’m a scout, and I’m struggling on knots and I’m trying to learn them easier, and my mom downloaded this app to help me on my knots. You can take rope with you on the go, and the app can help you teach them. One of my personal favorites is the Sheet Bend knot. Knots are very easy on this app because you can make the instructions faster or slower, you can make the knot upside down, and you can get a 360 degree view. I fell in love with this app so much I checked it out with my mom. If it wasn’t for this app, my life would be depressing, and miserable.
Schi Town - Worth It
This app is severely undervalued - don’t tell them I said this, but I would’ve paid at least $5.00 for this. They couldn’t have done a better job building the app - it’s perfect.
Keep in mind that there are hundreds of knots out there that aren’t included in this app (this app has about 126 knots at the time of this writing) but in their defense, it’d take years to build an app that included every knot in existence.
All you military cats out there probably know how to tie a healthy portion of the knots they have in here, but if nothing else, this is a good refresher.
If you’re a beginner with tying knots, this app will be the greatest teaching tool you’ll ever need. I’ve always been ridiculously lousy at tying knots...like I’ve had a couple people show me over and over how to tie certain knots, and I just couldn’t wrap my head around some of the techniques. With the 3D 360° views on each knot diagram, this will make you an expert in a matter of hours.
Night426 - Very practical, useful app
I can’t overstate how handy it is to have over 120 different knots at my disposal, anytime. I’m always hauling crap that needs tying down, or working on some project where just the right knot makes everything easier. This app is far superior to any book, because you can zoom in, rotate, and see the knot actually being tied. I love it it’s worth more than they are charging. 95% of the App Store apps are actually useless for the real world. This is part of that 5% that is awesome.
RyansWorldOrder - Favorites keep disappearing
Great app but favorites keep disappearing. Really frustrating to spend so much time creating a favorites list of the knots I would actually need to then open it up in the field to find it empty. It has happened at least 6 times now over the course of the last 2 years or so. That makes the app pretty unreliable for any professional who wants to use the app as a quick reference in the field. It’s not a quick process to go through and find the right knot so the favorites is a really important part of the app that seems to lack any real reliability.
JustinS71 - You should own this app
I struggled for years with the shame and inadequacy of not knowing how to tie proper knots. I found myself avoiding situations in which my sub par knotsmanship would be seen by others, and spent lots of money on bungie cords and ratchet tie downs to compensate. I never could learn from pictures and guides on the internet. This app has been a Godsend. I have been able to tie any knot I want with this and it even works with no service on your phone. The 3d models are awesome since you can see the knot at all stages from any angle.
Created In USA - Excellent. Add random practice of the day.
Excellent. Please allow feature for random knot of the day to practice. Keep track of when last tried, to avoid repeating early – never give 2 different knots on same day, no matter how many times tried for the day. Have user judge as easy or hard. Keep stats of progress, time spent on each knot, and allow export in Excel format via email. Help users get better by focusing training on their weaknesses. Offer encouragement.
user41397 - Efficient and effective
The animation runs at adjustable speeds, so fast-forwarding through the “easy” parts and then slowing it back down, and having the option to pause, really make it user-friendly. Every knot profile links to other knots that have similar uses and has expanded my knowledge base. The additional feature of being able to add favorites makes it easy to find what I’m working on come practice time. Definitely worth money spent!

BenFromAmerica - If you're Knot an Idiot you would buy this app.
I thought I was knot going to get this app because of its 2 dollar price point but I was pleasantly surprised. Knot only does it show you how to tie each knot in 3D, it also gives you a description of what each knot can be used for. Knot only that but it also gives you preset categories that you can select from so you can make sure to get the ones you need and knot the ones you dont. I give it 5 Knots out of 5 Knots.
Knotfan1 - Fantastic knots app
I bought this app because of my new interest in boating, and I thought learning some basic knots would be a good place to start. What a delight it was to find this app and see how perfectly it demonstrated the tying of so many helpful knots! The ability to slide a finger left over the knot image to untie the knot and right to retie it is fantastic. It’s a great way to really study a knot and commit it to memory. Not only is this a great knot app, it’s one of the best apps of any kind, period.
taxim99 - 4.9 Stars
Ok, I'll round up. This app is fantastic. It does everything I could want in a knot app. Except... Now, maybe it's just me, but is there not an option to play the animation on loop? Having to stop and hit play every time is a bit of a hang up for me. Actually it's what keeps me from singing all its praises. I can't in good conscience dock a full star for that. Maybe it's there and I just can't find it. Want that last .1 star? It's yours for the option to loop.
Sfjrg - A Masterpiece
I learned the six basic knots in the Boy Scouts. Then many more from The Boy Scout Book of Knots. Then 3,000+ more from the Ashley Book of Knots. Okay, not all 3,000.
And now, a quantum leap forward. What a marvelous piece of work. For those who have trouble figuring out Knots from a book, a Godsend.
And, so very well done. At any price, buy this.
Then, learn some Knots. Fun, and on occasion, the right knot may save your life. Or, at least, make things much, much better.
yemiteliyadu - Top-notch app for learning and quick reference
At the top level I like the comprehensive selection of knots, the ways to find them by application category or name or end-use, and the ability to save to favorites. For the knots themselves: the clear animations with speed control, the strengths and weaknesses of the knot, and the cross-reference to similar knots. I find myself using this app more often than I imagined.
TD1120 - Nice 3D visual
Like the visual 3D to learn the different types of knots. do a 360 view, rotate and flip it round to learn your favorite ones. A big plus - you could get to the favorite knots too that you’ve hearted. Not sure how I missed but all your favorites are there in one place, make it easy to find them. Also you able to check out other related knots of your selections. Very helpful and sure come in handy.
KnottyPines - My go-to for knots
I have many knot books, including the Ashley Book of Knots, but this app is what I always go to. It has most every knot I need and the library is constantly expanding. The animations are simple, detailed, and easy to follow. One of the most important things for me about this app is that I can use it offline, so when I am out fishing or hunting with no signal, I still have my library of knots.
Mohsen from Iran - Wonderful App But A minor Issue
Everything is prefect, the only bothering problem is you can’t step back a short time span when you watch knot fastening and should watch the video until its end and replay it again to rewatch the missed span.
*** Oh, I got it how to step back by touching the video back and forth. I correct my asterisks to 5 star. 😊 Thank to its developers 🙏🙏🙏. It was tricky honestly 😉
Howzatar - Excellent for scouts
WOW!!!! This is by far one of the best ways I have seen for teaching knots to my scouts. I really like the animated knot tying. You can speed it up, slow it down, flip it to the back view, flip it upside down, show the knot tying for right handed vs left handed, etc. The scouts can learn it for whatever view they prefer. The 360 view is awesome to make sure you tired and dressed the knot correctly.
GasssMan - GasssMan 37
Without dispute, the best knot tying app ever made. The 3-D effect, accompanied by the ability to rotate the knot and see it from a 360 degree angle, combine with beautiful colors makes all knots appealing. Additionally, knots are well named and categories are clear. Also, the function and cross-over application of each knot is discussed. I recommend this app to everyone, beginner or expert, who desires a reference for teaching or review. Keep up the GREAT WORK !
@*&%$#@ - Great way to stay up on your knots...
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...
msdeluca - Ultimate Knot App...!!!
This knot app is simply incredible. It has every knot I’ve wanted to use and many, many more.
What I like:
1. The animated tying of each knot which can be viewed from the front AND the back.
2. The ability to speed up or slow down the animation.
3. The ability to view in full screen.
4. All knots are downloaded to your phone so that an internet connection is not needed to view.
5. The graphics are incredibly clear.
6. A history and typical usage is included with each knot.
7. Clear and intuitive interface.
This is a must have app for hikers, campers, explorers, truckers, etc.
Well done and thank you to the developer!
Jehejdvsvshshsbfnfjxb - Incredibly fun learning tool
As a Boy Scout teaching knots is hard and this app makes it the easiest thing in the world. It also has changed the way I secure things by showing me better knots. For instance I used to use a taut line hitch for rain fly stakes and now I use the adjustable grip hitch. And I used to use the clove hitch to start lashings and now I use the double constrictor.
KC8VJI - Great resource on the job (and countless other times)
I work in construction and use rope rigging fairly often, but not often enough to always remember the proper way to tie some of the knots I use. It’s great to be able to pull up this app for a quick refresher when I’m not sure.
The app is also great for learning new knots and variations of knots. Awesome resource!
TamCatG - The Best app ever for Knot tying
This is the best and easiest way to learn your knots and what they are used for. I also like the warning disclaimers and suggestions for more secure options for the purpose. The only added feature I would like to see is a loop function on the animation so that one can visually absorb it while learning it. Please add that.
JQKY - I have trouble learning to tie knots from a book
This app makes it easy for me to learn any particular knot. Slowing down the animation really helps me learn the steps.
A very well thought out app. The developers kept the end user in mind while designing the animations. Hey! I can now tie a Double fisherman and prison knots. For me, that alone is well with the price of admission.
Steel Duck - BEST knot app EVER!!!
I don't typically write reviews but this app is totally worth my time. If you can't tie a knot using this app then it's safe to say you probably want ever tie one. By far the BEST $2 I've ever spent on an app. I use this app mainly for the fishing knots but I'm certain I will get much more use from it for other things as well. Many Kudos to the maker of this one.
Somebody /anybody - Fantastic
This is a fantastic App. I am new to know tying and have bought 2 books on the subject. But this is by far the superior way to learn how to tie knots. Downloaded to your phone so it works as long as you have battery life. This is a essential app for anyone interested in outdoors survival hunting fishing and so much more 5 out of 5
ffembrrt - Fantastic resource!!
Excellent resource! As a firefighter, I have often gone to this app to refresh and search out new knots that can be used for various situations. I’ve also submitted request for knots not in the library and have always received positive responses from the developer. Keep up the good work!!
Mangakey - Learned knots I never were able to
This is not only 3D but allows you to play the action of the rope being tied step wise! Perfect for learning the more complicated knots I never understood using 2d drawings. The ability to rotate the knots as well as the extensive number of knots make this app better than any book!
JadMrr - Love this app
I fish, climb, and camp. This app the best I've seen and used. They have added more knots over the years and it's only gotten better. When you don't use a knot for a while you forget how it is tied. This app allows you to take your phone with you and review what you've forgotten or never learned. Love it.
Davidwtd - Dude.
I can’t imagine who the target market is for this app. But for a guy like me who one day just decided, I wanna learn some knots. This app is seriously legit. It does so much cool stuff! Support this app and go ahead and buy it. They clearly have someone brilliant behind this app’s design. They all deserve to stay employed. That is all :)
BoomtoweYT - Knot Believable!
It is hard to learn knots manually in a book, it is true. This allows a visual aspect with a load of knots, video image for knotting, and a favorites to keep all your favorite knots in here, or often used knots. It is engaging and enjoyable for the whole family! Usable easily navigated, to knot get this is knot possible! STOP READING GET THE APP.
Chazman92 - Great visualisation
App developer responded same day for suggested knot additions. Love the app and how it visualizes the knot being tied. Would love to see alternative ways to tie knots too. For example there are at least three ways to tie an alpine butterfly. Maybe show a few options? Either way I still love the app.
O.Vulgaris - Top Notch App
I am a professional pilot, and amateur knot-trying enthusiast, and I must say, this app basically led to a new hobby for me, which has proven quite useful in my day-to-day life. Clear animations & commentary on knots from history to reliability to function - DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY! This one's the real deal in a sea of fake & crappy apps.
i_weld - No your knots
I just loaded this app. Played with it for five minutes and have to wonder, is this one of those to good to be true moments? Why did someone create this app. It’s beautiful. There’s no add super easy to navigate. Lots of 3D knots to choose from. Something has to happen. It’s just to nice to be free.
Bdubya1702 - Well done. Throw the old scout book away now!
Pretty intuitive knot tying app with almost all the major knots you'd ever need to know how to tie. Great presentation and ability to rotate knots and flip them over. Allows full screen for those who are on smaller screens. Time to toss the old scout handbooks away!
mattysandals - Animation showing in knots is awesome
If you are looking to get into fishing and wondering how to tie knots, this app is absolutely amazing. I noticed a knot that I wanted to tie, the Royal Polaris knot (RP knot) was not listed. I contacted support and they got right back to me letting me know they would look into it. You have to love app developers that are in it for the right reasons!
Ted#'s - Easy to use knot tying guide.
This app has more knots than I need to know. It does have all the knots that I have become accustomed to using for climbing. I have picked up a few others that may be useful as time will tell. I’m glad that I have downloaded this app. Very nice reference tool.
fln8tive - Excellent app and very addicting
There are so many knots shown in this app, for every type of use, and reading the history behind them is an added bonus. You can spend hours watching the videos and practicing your knot tying skills! Kudos to the devs for this super app!
Jim$7 - Best knot tying App ever
This app is great, very good, covers a wide Variety of knots and the animation is wonderful. Recommend it highly. However the last update has a bug. When you select the star for favorites it has you to rate the app or no thanks. In is stuck in a loop. Please fix the bug.

Bonesmasher - Great app!
This is a great app to learn about knots. Some of the animations (like scrolling through the list) seems a bit sluggish on my iPhone 8, but other than that I don't really have much of an issue with this app. Thanks for making it!
Update: As someone who doesn't tie knots often, it would be useful if the knot description gave some real life examples of when a knot would be used.
Dpqld - Continually improved
This program is excellent and just keeps getting better and I am talking about my experience of over 3 years. In my older reviews I discussed why I chose this app over all the other knot apps. Those reasons haven’t changed. The interface updates and the controls are excellent. So 5 stars even if you haven’t yet added the Gordian knot :)
Traffic Controller 88 - Awesome App for Scout Leaders
I regularly use this app to help with demonstrating different lashings to my scouts. Being able to see the movement of the rope without anyone’s hands in the way it makes the knot or lashing a lot easier to understand for the scouts.
Camp247365 - Great knots app
Really well done, lots of knots (121 atm) for boating, fishing, camping, rescue, climbing, even decorative as well as general purpose.
Animated, rotatable and easy instructions as well as context of use. Easy to follow and replicate knots as such.
As a feature, and I’m sure that would be very easy to implement by the developers, then I’d wish that there was a “continuous loop” option in the animation so the knot keeps playing over and over again. Right now the play button has to be repeatedly pressed, which is cumbersome if one is in the middle of a knot looking for the next step. That would make this app absolutely perfect.
Kept up the great work.
Hazza50 - Great App!
Clear, concise, great variety, very useful. Perhaps I missed this, but would you consider a frame forward-backward possibilty to review stages of the knot, rather than having to start/pause again?
gwynnec85 - Easy to follow
With the adjustable speed control you can slow any knot so it’s very easy to tie the knot yourself .The range of knots is listed so also easy to find what you want.
Wildcat666 - Great start
I really enjoy this app to remind me on how to do some knots. Just waiting for more specific ones in the sailing section so I can recommend it under us boaties. 😉
Snyderglas ATS - Neil
Second to none.
Even an Old Salt, told me he’s seen nothing like it, & wished it was around when he was on the high seas.
Brilliant app, easy to follow, great to have , even if you eat & sleep knots.
Wipedme - Best app for knots
Great app so easy to learn different types of knots.
Just wondering could the developer add different types of splices other than the two you have.👍
Horse9735 - Easy to use
This app is so easy to use and the customer service is fantastic. Have no hesitation in recommending to friends!!
0BPM - Simply brilliant
Wish we had iPads 50 years ago when I was in the navy....
Brutal boy - Great
Fantastic app. We use it to help teach knots to the scouts. Would also love to see a friendship knot also known as Chinese cross knot.
Love the animations and the ease of use.
bothy51 - Knots 3D
If you are looking for an app regarding knots this would be the best that you can download,I cannot fault it,great app.
Cyrilsyd - Love the app
It’s such an easy app. I love the simplicity on how to use it. I also love on the different angles of the knots.
sparx2 - Knots 3D
Great all round app with knots for every situation
P Bluetoes - Wonderfully clear.
Excellent design. Would like to see it include more bends (and bends that are called knots [like the Reever]) and splices.
wowwwwie - very handy
you never know when you need it. surprisingly it is very simple.
Heidi R 1234 - Missing alpine butterfly bend
Probably one of the most important bends and it’s missing!
Tammymeand - Worth 5 stars
Excellent app, great help
Macca45 - A brilliant app
This is the best free app on the apps store.
Pea quake - Great app
This is the best knot tying app - so easy to follow great illustrations-, great work
Harstan - Brilliant app
Thomas negro - And im in love
wow! Wow wee. I HAVE GOOSEBUMBS. I HAVE FALLEN Head over heels in love with knots again. I cant believe so many types of knots can be all stored into one easy to use app. This app is a must for any one ( man or woman) who is serious about knots. Also a great intro to anyone who is looking into taking up knoting for a hobby. Have all the classic and some OUTRagious knots.
Knot on everyone.
Paecl - Brilliant but dangerous
The 'how to tie' each knot section is fantastic.
The lack of warning about dangerous knots could kill. It would be better if warnings not to use were clearer and alternatives given.
The bowline rarely has any place in climbing or abseiling - it has 3 potential mistied variants that look close enough to right. There are safer alternatives (generally a figure of 8 follow through)
A Closer Look - Excellent!
Excellent! Absolutely excellent! I love using knots but can never remember the best ones. Now I don't have to. With this app I can find the most appropriate knot for the situation every time, and with the variable speed animation I can follow along right on the spot. Fantastic! Now I can do every knot I ever wanted to, and then some :-)
Jhw00 - Knots3D
If you want the best look no further. To do justice to this app I would have to write an essay, just believe all that the good reviews say.
What I like most about it is the ability to watch the knots being tied as fast or as slow as you want.
I think the developers have thought of everything - colour schemes, groupings, favorites, clear graphics and full screen display
I wish that this technology was available when I was growing up as everything is so clearly explained together with the history, terms and purpose of each knot.
jhw00 21 Dec 2014
Waynebow2 - Waynebow2
Right from the start the opening page is a stand out and this is an invitation to look further in to and explore the various knots. They are full of stunning colours and explanations on how to, and then there are the various uses explanations and the description's. This is an excellent App.
Wobbles08 - Fantastic resource
Brilliant app, wish it was around when I was a scout some 20 years ago! One suggestion though: it would be even better if later updates also showed the knots fully tightened. Cheers!
Aussaroo - A winner
This is a great App. I'm an avid fisherman and I'm also someone's husband so now and again I'm expected to perform the odd miracle. I've got all miracles covered in the household knot department thanks to this App. She who must be obeyed thinks I'm a Knot Whisperer and occasionally I get rewarded - thank you Knot Dudes - 5 stars is your reward!!
Andy Broadley - Love this apt
This truly is the best and most understandable Apt for various knots , my wife and I do a lot of Kayak fishing where are are a long wAy off shore so when we have the need to change a style of knot we now go to this and it is so easy to follow
Carlrok - Wonderful app
A fantastic app with a great feel to it. Illustrations to tie knots are at the highest standard for any app. Undoubtedly the best knot app available. Couple more knots in due course will turn this into a 5 star must have app. You also don't need the Internet to view knots, so it's great in remote areas! Great innovative app. Well done
Doc14u - Simple and brilliant
How could you ask for more?
Simple,straight forward and intricate at the same time.
Absolutely brilliant and simple knot reference guide that is easy to follow and learn. 10 star rating, thank you
Ken010101 - Ken T
Brilliant app 10/10. I'm going to advise this app to campers on a couple of Facebook camping pages I joined. Nothing worse than seeing a camper tie loads etc in undo able knots. Or worse, tie loads that may slip on the road.... Great app.... A good safety app too.
Bart101Simpson - Great selection of knots
What a fantastic app, great selection of knots put into logical categories, excellent functionality with ability to slow down, rotate. If yr interested in learning knots this is definitely the app to get. Suggestion to include splicing, eye splice & wire farm fencing knots
Freedom.78 - Excellent Descriptions
The other knot apps I've tried don't have this detail. It's graphical interface is excellent & make it the best all round of the knots apps I've used for learning. I don't know why this is not a more popular app.
Fish? What fish? - Brilliant App!
Fantastic App. Description of knot uses and effectiveness. Video of tying procedure for each knot that can be slowed down to make learning much easier. We'll worth having. I learnt a lot very quickly.
seaart1 - It's driving me knots
This has renewed my enthusiasm for this dying art form. I will have to keep a couple of practice ropes in the car with me so that I can play whenever I have some waiting time.
andazrai - Great app
This app is very useful and practical. It is also very easy to use with 3d animated instructions. Everyone should have this app in their phone because it is very handy.
Invaderfox - Amazing App!
Its really cool how it teaches all of the knots and the it shows a 3D stop motion pitchure of how u do it and if u like the knot you can add it to your favourites where u can quickly look at it. Defentlly worth my money and 5 stars
Ardeet - Great offline reference for my frequently needed knots
As an infrequent tier of knots I find that I need a reference and refresher at hand. Knots 3D provides this.
Using the Favouriting capability means the subset of essential knots that I need are quickly accessible.
Timeout66 - Better then the books
It makes it easy to pick up quickly.
Vagawi - Very useful
Great app and easy to see how to do it (tie the knot). I would like to see a little more info about securing loads on trucks and trailers. Some of the knots seem suitable but I'm unsure. Well done.
Billysull - Cool animations
Great app - the animations are fantastic, especially being able to rotate them in 3D. Would be 5 stars if there were more knots, or more examples of how they're used, eg in boating it would be really helpful to see drawings of the knots in use.
RolandCharlotteFernandes - Love it
When you have something like this in 3D I must say it cannot get better than this. Well done guys!! 5 stars
Alan in Sydney - Genuinely useful app
This app can get you out of trouble with knots anywhere, anytime. A must have for anyone interested in boating, camping or just around the house.
JulianXYZ - Finally!
An app which clearly shows how to make complex knots. By golly, I've tried so many ways to learn knots and finally found an app for it.
Beegly - Fantastic way to learn knots
Fantastic. You can adjust the tying speed, and even go backwards so that you really see how to tie each knot
Coldrick - Best Knot App
I have several knot apps, and lots of books on knots. Knots 3D is superb: the animation with its control over view and speed is extremely useful. Kudos to the dev!
BBCphile - Outstanding!
Clear, comprehensive, simple and informative. What more could you ask for?!

Unenthused hipster - Does the thing
Pretty straight forward. Great app and comes in handy in a pitch
Cmin7 - Knots 3D
Excellent app. Fun to try the different knots and easy to learn new ones. I’ve had this app for a long time already.
tec_64 - tec_64
Great app. Very useful reference.
Shadowlinex - App
Great app, helped a lot with knots
cpthngr - Excellent!
Sep 2020: Still a fabulous app. 5 Stars all the way!
Wonderful app with lots of thoughtful features.
ray9915 - Good app but forcing me to review it takes away 2 stars!
spitup - Outstanding.
This App is absolutely the BEST.
Thank You So Much.
Cjaywrite - How can you knot buy this!?
Fantastic app. Loads of knots and good explanation of their uses, drawbacks etc. I wish you could also view the knots in “steps” instead or as well as a gif but it’s not a huge deal.
Cantfindapassword - Great App!!
Love it! Best knots app available
SpikeToronto - Amazing App!!
An amazing app that only gets better as the years go by. FIVE (5) stars and two thumbs up!
Dr@Zoidberg - Indispensable
Très bonne application.
Bollocks2U - Great COVID-19 busy work
I got this years ago and loved how it taught me loads of knots then.
Since I’m stuck in on the C19 lockdown me and my bit of rope have hours of fun.
Cyberamix - Wow! Encore!!!
Très bon appli surtout très pratique pour apprendre et se remémorer les noeuds utilisés moins souvent. SVP, plus de noeuds de sauvetages tels que harnais complets avec jambes, tailles et bras. Merci!!!
eibcpa - I’m always tied up with his app!
This app and I have spent so much time together, that we’re tying the knot!
J29R - Best App Ever!
This without question the best app I’ve ever used! It replaces dozens of knot books in my collection. Step by step, easy to use, enlarge, replay etc. Amazing! Thank you.
Juanit0-Ono - WoT’s knot to like?
This is a very good app, & has been a beneficial refresher tool for a not so young Sea Dog!
Mitch$& - Love it
I love this app. It is so handy as a reference and how to guide.
scout un jour - Knots 3D
Une application à porter de tous. Avec les vidéos à vitesse variable ,chaque personne y trouve son rythme.
Éric Gingras - Vraiment utile
La base de tout les noeuds ou presque,très bien illustré en 3D ,bravo au développeur✌🏻
LKM216 - Knots 3D
Was great to start with and just keeps getting better and better.
Clairenligne - Knots Galore
Love this app. Everything about it is well done.
Much appreciated… thank you!
PrrDll - Indispensable pour la voile et autres
Animation 3d facile à comprendre.
Tous les noeuds standards, leurs dérivés et d’autres, même décoratifs.
Muzikmaven - Phenomenal
This application is nothing short of amazing. If the developer can produce something this sophisticated yet beautifully simple with respect to the UI, the possibilities of what else they could do on any other subject or project seems limitless. Genius.
Fiorito62 - Extremely handy!
This is one of those apps that you won't use often, but when you do need it, it's by far the best app for learning to tie knots!
Flying Frank - WOW!!!
Better than YouTube videos.
Great 3D. Makes it easy to follow.
Mattjamer - Love it
Very well organised in the app. Then really easy to follow each knot and love the way you can slow and stop the playback. Thanks very much for a great app.
Avocet-4 - Easy to follow
Love how you can change the speed of the video. I recommend this app.
TedShredz - And I thought I knew them all...
It has the knots very well covered with animated descriptions on how to tie them. Well done.
Gerula78 - Great app
I loce the app. How about adding Romanian among your languages?
CORVETTEPAUL - Fantastic
The best money I’ve spent in years
Awesome app :))
Specul8 - Knot heaven
A beautiful app that allows you to see knots from all angles. Allows you to see the knot being tied at different speeds. It also has a good description of the knot and its usage. You can favorite knots to make them faster to find in future. I have a couple of knot apps and I have to say this is the best one so far.
nicnic_123 - Parfait
Une application parfaite pour apprendre à faire des noeuds: les noeuds sont triés par champ d'utilisation(camping,marins,etc.) de plus, les utilisations de chaque noeuds sont données, ainsi qu'une séquence d'images que l'on peut avancer et reculer à notre guise. L'application dispose aussi d'une section "favoris",où l'on peut sauvegarder les noeuds que l'on connait, qu'on veut apprendre, enfin vous décidez ce que vous en faites.
Chrispy's fishing trips - Too knot!!!
Perfect for refreshing my knowledge and use of knots I use in the marine industry. Quick reference and 3D is perfect. A very good app for my needs.
CarlTrec - Vraiment utile et bien fait
Beaucoup de noeuds tres utiles. Modèle de démonstration autant pour gaucher que droitier
Pyper0 - Very helpful!
Great app, complete, concise and a constant help to me.
Howard Fern - Learning to tie a knot
I love this app. This helped me practice tying the necessary knots required to pass my sailing course. I especially like the fact that you can speed up or slow down the demo.
le khoa - Great app
I review this app 5 stars because of its useful in many situation a good app you should have
Dheff4832 - Love it
Diagrams are clear and easy to follow. Tons of knots, although I couldn't find the truckers hitch, even though it is referred to in other knots. Love the control I have on viewing the knots, including speed and viewing angle control. Thank you for this app!
radar349 - Froze my phone
Cyber2017 - Fabulous all around
I really like the animations that teach you how to tie knots.. Also beautiful graphics.. I got this on a free promotion but I'd still pay for this App :D
goodsignal - easy learning
Now I can tie knots without asking so called experienced arrogant big guys!
SpecialKen - Amazing update
Been a reference for years, great to see continued development. Everything you could want, animations illustrating tying, favourite knots.
XxGalaxyspyshotxXvip - The only knot app you need from App Store
Good app to learn most common knots you need. Highly recommended.
pob3339 - Knots made easy - at last !
I love this App. The animations are great and the fact that they can be slowed and paused and reviewed from different angles means that you can figure out how a knot is tied in your own time. I've tried books and other apps but this makes it simple. The knots are organised into different sections such as climbing, boating, camping etc, and there is a short written explanation and history of each knot. Everybody should know a few knots for different purposes and this app gives you the ability to save your favourites
Perplexed and annoyed - Elegant
This is an elegant little program, not unlike many of the knots it describes. Highly practical in terms of knots that have a specific use because it describes that use within broader categories, like sailing, building, climbing, etc.
tha_Beast - Nice app
Thank you this is a very useful app.
Goalzero - Fabulous!
I love having the animated tying instructions. It makes tying knots so much easier to understand. I also like being able to turn the knots around in 3D.
Excellent effort. Worth every penny!
Genevieve7028 - Wow
Bravo, a great 3d animated most easy way to do all knots we need. Best i have ever.
Tjslayer - Great app, easy to learn
Great app works very well and easy to Lear with!
You can learn how to earn on the Forex market! Become Libertex client and practice trading on financial markets without risk. Get Free Forex Course!
K. Mulvaney - No update
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 got feedback
werfamilyigotjoeygregyandme - BEST KNOT APP PERIOD.
I have had this app for a while and still use it years later- by far the best way to learn and refresh yourself-- on top of them continually updating!! Try to find another knot app that does this! They also strike the right balance of
Visual and categories etc.
Great app- thank you!
Requiem997 - SPECTACULAR App!!!
This is a high quality, well thought out, put together and organized, tutorial app.
If you EVER need to know how to tie a specific knot, this is the ONLY app you'll EVER need.
Detailed info, as well as an animated guide, on each knot make this an absolute must have app for EVERYONE.
It deserves 6 out of 5 stars.
Novice a - Quick, easy, essential
I’ve had this app for years. I’ve been able to learn knots from the most basic to complex. It’s been a quick reference, providing a reminder when needed. The upgrades have been seamless.
TheTrueCobler - The Best! Army/boyscout tested
This is really the best knot app I've ever seen. I reference it all the time for proper technique, as knot tying is a perishable skill. The App owners continually update with new knots, fixes and improvements. Buy it, you won't regret it! Aug 2018 update: very happy to see that the app team is continually improving the app and adding new knots.
mattone2 - Terrific reference
Growing up in Scouts, I loved learning how to properly tie knots and use a rope. My Dad's fav knot was a bowline on a bight and always used it to tie down stuff to the roof of our station wagon prepping for road trips. I could never remember how he tied it. Now I know thank to this app with its nice animations, explanations, and it's variety of knots.
CapitalistSailor - Great App
I’ve used this app for quite while and they regularly add to it. I refer to it every few weeks when I want something different for my sailboat or when fishing. The displays and animations are good yet simple, and the notes and references to similar knots are helpful.
Randall12345 - Knot Accelerator
With this app, one can practice knot-tying virtually anywhere. This allows me to refresh on a particular knot when an application comes to mind. The regular updates are great. The finger control of rewinding/forwarding the knot’s evolution is a frequently-used feature. Highly recommended!
WaterRabbitUSA - Best App for Knot Tying - EVER !!!
This is a dying art and is important for all to learn. Most people can just barely tie a granny knot and their shoes. The 3D view has helped me, many times that I struggled with an unfamiliar knot. I hope that this app helps others, as it has helped me.
Thanks, Joseph W.
This app is 100% CapeCodMediaKing approved!!! 😼
Graceharps - Love the knot education
I never thought I could tie a knot. Contains many great, clear, explanations of so many knot possibilities. The 3D version, with the ability to choose the speed, is unsurpassed. Basically, all of the reviews I read are on point. Thank you for creating this app!
MP3340 - Incredible
This is everything other reviewers said! It is elegant in terms of presentation and user experience. The interface is flawless and completely intuitive. I know NOTHING about knots and immediately found this useable. Great work.
Rathole101 - Quite Useful
This app is amazing for those who don't really know how to tie an appropriate knot. Each knot is useful in one way or another and i could see the app being very useful in any given scenario. Also, I personally believe that practicing this is kind of fun.
gee_gDavid - A "Best of the Best" App
Are use this app all the time. My Boy Scout troop challenges me to find new ways to teach knots. This is for scouts to use technology to their advantage. This is one of the few apps on my iPhone that I've had since. In other words this app has not gone to the app boneyard.
an online subscriber - Suggestion for making this app more useful to people who aren’t familiar with knots
It would be great to have a section listing which knots to use for common tasks. If you need to tie the end of two ropes together than look at X, Y, and Z. If you need to tied a rope to a pole so that is is really strong look at A, B, C. Something like that. Thanks!
mglangley - Great app!
I've had this app now for several years and it just keeps getting better! I've used it to teach myself how to tie various knots. The animations make it very simple.
This is a very handy app! 5 starts because I can't give it more.
peteshndl - Excellent knot app!
The app presents a great selection of knots. I like the fact that you can slow down or speed up the rate that the knot tying is demonstrated, as well as change your point of view IE: flip the knot end for end as well as turn it around 360 degrees.
Bike-Boy - Extraordinary app. Beautiful, clear 3D graphics.
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...
Here-and-Now - Best I've found
I love this app. I have been into knots ever since days of BSA and Pioneering Merit Badge. This app is right on for the dozens of knots I know and could check here, and it gives me many more that I didn't already know. Bravo! And the updates keep coming! Thank you, dev.
JTown1986 - Fake 3D...
I assumed they were using 3D models rendered real-time so I could look at each step from any angle and rotate freely. Nope. They just pre-render into 2D animations and you only get a per-rendered 3D rotation view of finished knot, and only across one axis.
Which is bizarre, because they obviously have the 3D models and animations already so it’s strange that they put in extra effort to make a less functional approach that uses more disk space on our phones.
Dent De Leon - Great app. Well worth the price.
Tremendous update! The graphics are amazing!
◾Extensive library of knots.
◾Knots can be rotated for viewing from any angle.
◾You can step through the animation by sliding your finger across the screen.
◾The ABOK numbers provided refer to the Ashley Book Of Knots, for further research.
Stepping through the animation is as good as having an expert guide your hands through the process.
This app, Pro Knot and Knot Guide comprise my iPhone reference library for knot tying. When I'm stumped by the other two apps, 3D usually shows me what I'm missing.
MuleEar - It’s Ok. 3D Helps
I was a little disappointed overall. Thought I would learn a little more from this app. The knots are never finished, and no opinion, recommendation, or detail on tightening the knot. Yes you just pull it, but no direction whether you pull the tag or standing part, or tips to ensure the knot lays correctly. Knot slips, lose big fish, no big deal. Knot slips, lose person or property, big deal. Be helpful if you could reverse demos as well.
PenicillenGranny - Knots for Construction
As a Union Ironworker, it is important to be able to safely secure materials and equipment in place, or to be hoisted overhead other workers. The animations are clear, and there’s a knot included for every need. So far, the app has helped me to learn many knots in a short period of time.
Tigmanha - Great app for every one
I too have used this app for several years. I appreciate that this app is always evolving, ever improving by adding more knots and the graphics are stunning and easy to follow.
If you like knots, this is a must have.
Sam_sa - Unique app
I have had this app on my phone for years now. It's one of those few apps that you never want to delete. It helped me get extra credit in my art class. Easy to follow, great graphics.
REDDOTU571 - Second to none
This app is a must have even if you're not into knots, you won't believe what you can do with just a rope, some of these knots are works of art, just get it, you won't be disappointed 👍 👌
Gatofeo - Great App
I use this app all the time for different situation. Mostly for fishing, however, it can be used for camping or loading stuff on a car. I love the visual graph that you can speed up or slow down.
Mrdavid5150 - Awesome
Some knots I’ll never need but are nice to see. On the other hand, most are knots I’ve either always wished I knew how to tie, or have always wanted to use. Thank you for taking the time to put these into an app.
JaredMoseley - Very well made
The demonstrations are perfect. The fact that you can select your speed and scrub through the animation makes it so quick and easy to learn the knot. Hopefully they include a suit tie section :)
Sapplinger - The best knots tying app I’ve ever used.
Hands down the best knots tying app. It’s highly enjoyable to use and you can slow down the tutorial and even scroll through all the moves frame by frame. It’s seriously an awesome app.
Galaxyhunter - Love it!
I love this app. No complaints. Very well thought out. Knots have descriptions, categories, uses etc. very useful. You can watch them being tied forward or reverse and set the speed you want to watch it.
MaxxMannn - Knotts 3D
If you used to have a sharper knowledge of making knots and need a little help getting back to it, then this is the app for you. You’ll not only refresh what you already knew but you’ll probably do as I did and learn quite a few new and handy knots. Chers.
Saisniorp - Wonderful app for knot lovers
This app makes it incredibly easy to learn new knots, as well as to keep track of (and practice) they knots you already know. Excellent visual demonstrations, as well as personable and funny descriptions of the history behind the knots.
Fulano3700 - Boating
It always amazes me to watch long time boaters tie a line to a cleat in piles of crossing line instead of a simple cleat hitch as simply shown in this app. My 100 year old uncle used to say that more than two half hitches is too much.
I'd rather walk or even crawl - Best knot app known to the human race
Simply the best. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this app! I’m 71 years old, and I started using this app in my 69th year and learned more knots than I learned in the previous 68 years!! And I use them!
Knot a fool - Wow!
I read the reviews and almost passed on it because I couldn’t believe there wasn’t anything wrong with it. I’m so glad I didn’t! This is the most awesome instructional app I have ever tried! I cannot say enough good things. YOU NEED THIS APP!!
Addivmann - Highest quality freeware
This is one of those rare free pieces of software that has amazing quality and utility. Watch knots from any angle, in slow motion, or paused. Find similar knots, recommended knots, and even history and Ashley book of knots id.
dethmetaldave - Great app!
Just got the app and like the view and speed options that make it easier to learn each knot. Great app for outdoor activities home and away. Many knots useful in work place also.
mrwades89 - The best app!
I freakin love this 3D Knots app! I've never been good at tying knots, really never been taught (no pun intended), but now I can learn them when I need them! Very cool animated instructions with the ability to adjust the 360* viewing area. Great job!!
5 Wasted Mins - Best knot teacher ever!
I have been in scouting (and tying and learning knots)since 1972 that being said; this is the best and easiest way I have ever found (other than person to person) for learning knots.
PoppaSyn - Great app
I really enjoy this app and they constantly update it with new knots. The knot animations provide an easy way to figure out how to tie them. One of the few apps I’ve paid for and well worth it.
Zaxkeelon - Fantastic demo
Having a Naval grandfather, there was always a knot for the tasks at hand. App has great collection of different uses. The step by step visual along with instruction has been a spot on tool for my youth troops to use.
Colorad123 - Does the job well.
Movies of knots with speed control are way better than the old picture book way of learning knots
Ron Charlton - Knots 3d is delightful!
Knots 3d is a well-thought-out and implemented app that makes learning to tie knots easy. It’s 3d graphics are great. You can watch a knot being tied repeatedly to study the technique. It’s a great app for study and practice. Get it!
Dakuma21 - Quick and Easy Refresher
Great app to have to quickly refresh on knots I haven't used in a long time when able to go out doors again or manual labor.
WryRhino1 - What’s Knot to like!
Downloaded this app recently to learn some knots and help my daughter work on knots for Girl Scouts. It really helps visualize difficult knots that older poorly illustrated step by steps can’t show well! Great job!
MDH911 - mdh911
Nothing but WOW !!! What a wonderful application designed to help for sure. It’s controlled, you can slow things down to learn better which helps in many ways.
Whazupdocg - Great App
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!
Plorb - For The Boy Scout In All of Us !
If you are a fisherman, camper, boater or otherwise an outdoorsman, you simply must have this app. The animations are very helpful in teaching how to tie these knots & when to use them. Get this app today!
The Real Turtleman - Get this app
I use this app primarily for fishing. Because I am out of cell phone range many times, using the Internet is out of the question. One of my go to apps, get it!
j%nml - Great App
Beautiful colors and animations make it as easy as possible to understand how to tie some pretty complicated, as well as simple, knots. Descriptions and history are encyclopedic. Overall a terrific app.
