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.

App Store Dinesy ,

Full page video ads with audio

…with no way to change the default audio settings. There are plenty of better knot tying apps out there with animated instructions, larger libraries, no auto-play ads with sound, and that don’t want a whopping $30+ *per year* to remove those obnoxious ads.

I’ve had this app for years, and it used to be a lot less annoying. I’m glad they finally gave me a reason to delete it.

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.
