Knot Guide 6.0--Best!

This is the BEST!!. Wonderful App for viewing and tying knots. (No, I don't know or work for the developers.) I love the physics of why knots work, but I'm lousy at remembering even the regular ones, so I've bought every app that looks good, and they're usually poorly illustrated, buggy, & confusing. The Winkpass developers are very responsive to requests and questions, and the app is both esthetically beautiful AND useful (I pulled out my iPhone at a picnic to figure which knots would hold 4 dogs of different sizes to one fence, with one piece of rope. It worked!, and the app's directions and illustrations are good enough to use while dealing with 4 happy, jumping dogs pulling on the rope I was tying. It's a good reference, and the iPad version is even prettier (and bigger, thus a little easier to follow). Solid, Pretty, easy UI. Very good job, Winkpass!

Anyone can tie anything with this app!!!

When I discovered that a square knot didn’t work for everything, I was in trouble.
I looked online, I looked at numerous apps. So many said that they had pictures and that they made knot tying easy. kNOT!!!!!
Fortunately I found this app - same claims, pictures, makes knot tying easy...
Well this app does just that! The pictures are clear and concise. Depending on the knot, it uses however many steps are necessary to break it down to where anyone can tie it.
I have used this app soo many times - it also tells you the appropriate knot for what you are doing. I love the ‘favorites’ feature, it makes it even easier to get to the knot you need or want.

Best knot guide I have ever found

Believe you me, I have searched high and low, this is the absolute BEST guide for learning how to tie all different types and styles of knots. There has never been an application that I have found that there is not a knot been able to fulfill with this guide. If you are looking for a compilation of most every knot ever then stop looking. You have now found it.
Also, there are updates every so often to keep this guide current and up to date. I am well pleased with my purchase and would buy it again knowing what I know now
Thank You and keep up the Great app that this is
