Ratings and Reviews
Knot Basics, needs updating
The instructions are easy to follow, unlike many books. This is a very handy guide for those who want to learn the basics.
On the downside, there is very little information on the use of the knots. It has a search function, but with so little information, searching for a knot for a particular application can be frustrating if you don't already know which knot you need or what the knots are used for.
Also, there are no alternatives or variations shown. For example, the taughtline hitch is commonly used with a bight drawn through on the last step, creating a "quick release." Someone new to the knot would probably like to know that...
Also, the app has not had any updates or new knots for more than two years now.
A few knots missing
Very good app. Add a Homer Rhodes knot under Fishing.
Pictures too small
Have the iPhone app and wanted to have this on my iPad too. Figured since it said HD it would be better scaled but the pictures are still small so basically you pay $2.99 for a background image of some boards. Take my three bucks and actually do some upgrading on this please! Five stars waiting for you when you do.
