Good App, Must Pay For Each Platform!

The knot app itself is good. Just a heads up, you must pay for each platform. So, if you happen to buy it while on your iPad, and then want to load it on your iPhone, no good.
I thought I must be doing something wrong, since I had never run into that before, so I contacted the company. They confirmed that, yes, you must pay for each platform separately.
My problem is that they don't mention that anywhere in the app description. It's certainly not the norm. Again, good app, except now I'm stuck with it on my iPad, when I really wanted it on my phone. Oh well. Consider yourself warned.

Best $5 I’ve ever spent on an app

Buy this App. We have a sport fishing boat in Alaska - which we use continuously for 3 - 5 day trips, 20 to 60 miles out of town/on the ocean. Our need to tie and splice various lines is non stop. This fantastic app has made it easy for any of us on the boat to become expert at just the right knot for any occasion. Brilliant in its simplicity and presentation (and no nonsense explanations and comparisons).

Refund request

All my other apps work on phone and pad (even the 3D app) I can’t see any reason that this one will not, I knew this is to much to pay for this app but I like having some of the different knots so I got it now I find out It will not let me share this app with my phone so I would like to get a refund please.
Thank you.
