Customer Reviews

Good, but... (4 stars)
It's a good app with a decent assortment of knots. Some of the visual directions could have been made clearer by displaying direction (in front vs behind ) more clearly. Also, I don't understand why they don't just have the same knot by a different name all reference a single item instead of duplicating that item ( eg. cow hitch, girth hitch, lark's head are all the same hitch and they all have their separate set of indentical instructions).

Really useful App!!! (5 stars)
I use this app a lot! It's helped in Gardening, the treehouse, Our teepee adventure, camping, backpacking, boating, climbing, tying stuff to my mountain bike, balloon tying at parties (so you can undo the ribbon, instead of having to cut them off stuff... I even lashed together a greenhouse out of honeysuckle branches.... Best app I never knew I needed till I had it. The right knot makes everything work better... And you can tie one that you

Handy!!!!! (5 stars)
As advertised. Great help, easy to follow diagrams, handy ap; don't need to keep books in packs or other outdoor gear anymore.
