Ratings and Reviews
Lots of Knots Easy to understand
Free version has a lot of knots with description and very easy to follow instructions. Could use more description of the disadvantages of each knot (at least the ones I’ve looked at) but does describe when to use quite well.
Nah I’ll Pass
Just doesn’t cut it. Sorry. There’s other free apps that aren’t so obtrusive with the ads. So ya can’t really say “well it is free so that goes along with it”. The other completely free knot app only has little ads down on the bottom and never takes you away from your page as well as have to x outta it in order to move forward. Not animated like the other app free app either which pic to pic is handy but once you see tying in animation pics seem and are so less than. I know there may be a paid version but that’s actually keeping me from paying for the paid app instead of making me want more it made me want less and with a quickness as well.
This use to be my favorite knot tie app but now they force an advertisement after every knot you look at and it even pops up sometimes randomly but the worst thing is it did not allow you to close the advertisements. You have escape/close the app and then come back.
I wouldn't mind paying $0.99 for app but have lost confidence in it.
