With more than 140 knots, Knots 3D will be your go-to reference!

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 144 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 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.



  • Great resource on the job (and countless other times)

    By KC8VJI
    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!
  • Top Notch App

    By O.Vulgaris
    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.

    By jrfromhouston
    This is a saddle hunters dream app on how to tie knots. Makes tying knots super easy! So easy, my 7 and 8 year old sons tie knots using this app. Hands down best knot app on the app market place.
  • Best App for Knot Tying - EVER !!!

    By WaterRabbitUSA
    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!!! 😼

  • Nice 3D visual

    By TD1120
    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.
