Superb and Indispensable!
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!
Amazing and requires no WiFi to use
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.
Basically an app version of the website, which is a good thing. It's got some interface upgrades that make it better on your phone, and it doesn't require a connection. Better to know a knot and not need it than it is to not know a knot period!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
