Awesome offline reference for knots of all kinds

I’ve been a happy user of ProKnot for many years, ever since I bought a new tent and needed to learn how to tie my own adjustable guy lines without needing extra doo-dads. Enter the bowline and the tautline hitch. When the app stopped working with iOS 13, I reached out and got a quick response from John that he’d look into it, and lo and behold, the latest update released today resolves the issue. My guy lines have held up to strong winds, thanks to ProKnot’s clear transmission of knot wisdom. Fishing knots have proven useful, as have a number of others. I find myself swiping through new knots, thinking up ways to apply them in my daily life, or imagining new activities in which I might be able to use them. And nothing beats having an offline reference when cell service is spotty and you find that you need a knot you didn’t know you needed. Thanks, John.

One of the first & one of the best.

If I could only choose one knot app, this would be the one. It has clear, concise illustrations and instructions.
The developer has a set of water-proof cards that I have had for years. I recommend that, too.
The animation feature is well worth the price. 5 stars ★★★★★

Very useful app

I find myself going to this app often as fishing conditions change and a go to knot simply will not do. I can quickly search by the type of knot for a particular job and get step by step instructions on how its tied.
