    This app is perfect to have at your fingertips when you’re doing any kind of manual work or play. I’ve learned a ton of knots with this app and it’s easy to pause or step through the animation to fully understand a knot, or to flip to a mirror image of a knot if your instinct is to go left rather than right. The categories are helpful, the info about each knot is indispensable, and it’s easy to add knots to your favorites section for quick reference. I got this so long ago I can’t remember if I paid for it, but if I did, it was worth every penny. As a bonus: tying my halter top bathing suits with alpine butterflies and sewing the ends down to the back has saved me hundreds of neckaches!

    Got every knot app ever written. Bought this one because 3 of my 5 phones free space strapped and this app only 30mb versus the other 5 being around 150mb each. That's my review. Made my decision based on free space not content..genius. My guess is that I'm getting screwed content wise for this, but will have a hell of a time comparing 200 knots between 6 knot apps to review better. Lord himself knows knots important to know them all and Houdini does too. Dead?

    Discovered this while creating elements for a backyard playground. The directions and animations are easy to follow, each knot’s information tab is very interesting and, as a solo mom, I appreciated the inclusion of a necktie group. My 10 year old son and I have been knotting our way through Covid-19 isolation; it’s been entertaining, challenging, and extremely useful - we’ve tied everything from placemats and keychains to a seat for a tree swing. After 6 weeks at home I’ve spotted the cat in a variety of harnesses and have memorized the handcuff knot (just in case 😉).

    Awesome app but would love the ability to create multiple custom lists. I am an Assistant Scoutmaster and Merit Badge Counselor and would love to have separate saved lists for the knots that pertain to different merit badges.

    I have been using this app for a few years now and I can’t say enough about how awesome it is. If you think you might be interested in learning more about knots and knot tying; if you kinda like, like, love or can’t live without tying knots...well then this is for you! Not only do the Grogono’s offer a substantial multitude of knots to get you off and running, they provide excellent commentary on each. The animations illustrate perfectly how to execute the knots. This is really valuable as books, at times, fail miserably in this area-particularly for the more complicated knots. The value of this app is among the best out there. What a tremendous resource, what a tremendous accomplishment. Bravo fellas!! It took me a couple years to get around to writing a review for this app and I am more excited about it now than when I purchased it. Don’t hesitate. BUY THIS APP!

    So totally worth it. Found the website and thought it was by far the easiest way to learn new knots, and was thrilled to find out that there's also an app that I can use offline on my phone! The design of the app isn't super polished or perfect, but it gets the job done.

    This is one of my oldest apps I’ve purchased. I purchased this app back when I had an iPod Touch, and today, I still use it. The knots are extremely useful for everyday tying. The animations are clear and make it easy for a novice like me. I can’t recommend it enough. I also appreciate how it’s received updates to be compatible with the different iPhone screen sizes.

    Really helpful how to videos, and useful above on which knot to use. Super for sailors, campers, climbers, or others needing to be certain their knot works.
  • Amazing and requires no WiFi to use Nov 24, 2018

    Ever tried to tie a knot, reach for your phone to learn it (or get a few hints) and have “no service”? This app is a masterpiece of useful knowledge and knot tying skills available anytime and anywhere - as long as your phone is charged! Be present - sit down with your kids or grandkids and tie a few knots together - they will love it, learn something useful and remember the time spent with you forever.

    Each description should also describe risk of loosening and ease of and requirements of undoing. It would also be helpful if knots coult be found by purpose and if descriptions were searchable. I know I want to join two different size ropes/cords/lines but I dont know the name of a knot for that purpose. The app has favourites.

    This app is a result of the very good book published for beginners and others. That book also had two pieces of rope used to practice. It was fun. The app has many more types of knots to tie and nicely shows the process visually. It also lets you back up, pause and skip forward should you miss a step. As a owner of the book, I recommend the app as a more complete manual.

    Only issue is that for surgical knots, you can flip the animation but they are not labelled right-handed/left handed, so as a default learners see the left handed version and look retarded in the OR not understanding why they have to put the needle driver in their left hand to do the knot, vs keeping it in their right hand as the method was designed for. left handed people will like this set-up though. Would like to see some netting knots too if you find some good ones.

    Great app...but no bowline with a Yosemite finish in the climbing section? Better yet, Alan Lee's locked Yosemite finish?

    I have a lot of similar apps, this one's the best. I have used this app to help train CERT and SAR volunteers more than the actual course material. It's more complete and easier for most of they see it rather than visualize with static images.

    I've used the site quite a bit over the years teaching scouts basic knots. I was delighted to find that there's now an app. I would love to see the app get a Technical section like the website to describe rope terminology and rope types. I looked all through the apps and didn't find these rope basics.

    Only just opened it but looks good so far. Little gripe/suggestion. Have a section for tools. You use a tool that looks like it was once a coathanger so a section on how to make useful gear would be great.
