Excellent

Really nice app!

I've never been good at tying knots

I've tried for years to learn to tie even the most basic knots. This app is great. It is so handy when I'm doing something as simple as tying my kayak to the roof of my car or just sitting on the couch with a piece of string practicing.

This App ROCKS !!!

It clearly shows exactly how to tie a lot of different knot types. I use it all the time and would recommend to anyone that wants to learn how to tie a variety of different knots.

Best knot app

I have a few other knot apps but I keep coming back to this one. It has plenty more useful knots than the others. I like the step by step pictures more than the automated ones that some apps use and the information on each knot helps me to remember them.

Love This App

I use this app almost everyday for work. A must have for DIYers, travelers, adventurers and anyone who works a lot with their hands.

Very useful

If some type of description was with the knot name as to what the knot is used for would be an added ++

Good library of knots

I really like the easy tutorials.

Awesome

As a commercial fisherman this app has been very useful to have. Lots of updates and info and a huge knot selection

Knot Guide 6.0--Best!

This is the BEST!!. Wonderful App for viewing and tying knots. (No, I don't know or work for the developers.) I love the physics of why knots work, but I'm lousy at remembering even the regular ones, so I've bought every app that looks good, and they're usually poorly illustrated, buggy, & confusing. The Winkpass developers are very responsive to requests and questions, and the app is both esthetically beautiful AND useful (I pulled out my iPhone at a picnic to figure which knots would hold 4 dogs of different sizes to one fence, with one piece of rope. It worked!, and the app's directions and illustrations are good enough to use while dealing with 4 happy, jumping dogs pulling on the rope I was tying. It's a good reference, and the iPad version is even prettier (and bigger, thus a little easier to follow). Solid, Pretty, easy UI. Very good job, Winkpass!

Freaking GREAT!!!!!

Can you add a Waggoner Hitch? That would be great. Hey peeps: This is the best and only knots app you will ever need. Period.

A must have app!!!!

I use this app about any time I pick up a rope, fishing line, strap..... I wish I could remember how to tie all these but with this great app I don't have to. I have memorized a few new ones after using the app to help learn. Again this is a must have for any man out there.

Five stars

This app is awesome very helpful and easy to learn knots

Great App

I love this handy app for when I'm in the woods and I need a knot I haven't tied in awhile. Great resource.

Great app

Very useful, easy navigation. I like that I can save favorites for quick access.

Great app

We use it all the time to freshen up knot skills before trips.

Awesome product!!

Get it!

Great collection, easy to use

This app has saved my butt more than once. Just when you think you remember a not, you end up with a mess. This app helps me get my not straight so I don't lose the fish.

Everywhere

I use this when I'm fishing, boating and just about anywhere else I find a line or rope in my hands. Great reference app.

Excellent app!

When you need to be sure your knot is safe you will always have a reference with this app installed on your phone

Great list of knots

Nice clean interface, great list of knots for most occasions. Very helpful...

Great App

Great way to learn how to tie knots you don't use very often. Great for anyone with a boat or a pick up that needs to tie stuff down!

Awesome

Love it. Most useful app I own.

What apps do best

This is what apps do best. It's an excellent reference for something I need often, but would never carry around a book to reference. Very clear. Spent 1/2 hour having someone try and show me how to tie a bowline and still couldn't repeat it. I looked it up in this app and could tie it from memory in about 5 minutes.

Best Knot guide on the Market

This is the easiest and best knot guide on the Market.

Awesome extremely useful app

Find myself using it more than I ever thought

Great App!

I have used this app now several times to tie knots that I needed right away. I found it easy to navigate around and find the knot I needed even tho I could not remember the name. The picture direction has me tiring the knot correctly the first time.

Serves its purpose

I've always wanted to know a few useful knots but have never really learned anything but a square knot. By having this app always in my phone & iPad, I'm finally learning a few of the essential knots that I wish I'd learned as a kid. The app is always available, it gives a brief and clear explanation of the knot's uses, it's pros and cons and then gives a clear visual step by step illustration of how to tie it. I'm going to be on a house boat for a week with very spotty cell coverage & I'll have access to this app & a thorough list of useful knots & how to tie them.

Great useful app

Use it all the time. Is updated and refreshed frequently

Great app!

Love the variety and being able to store favorites. Perfect illustrations!

Great app!!!!

Been great seeing a lot of knots and bends that I haven't seen before. Looking forward to using them in the real world!!

Great App

Would be even better if they showed alternative tie methods or phrases used like for the hitch knot. Rabbit comes out of the hole, around the tree and back down the hole. Universal phrase and easy to remember.

Outstanding app!

I spend a lot of time outdoors and in the mountains and this app helps keep me fresh on some of the more lesser used, however still very useful knots. The ease of use coupled with the very obvious knot diagrams makes it simple to follow. As the app mentions, make certain to seek professional instruction when your life may hang in the balance of one of these knots.

Great knot reference

Just began learning knot-tying and find this a fantastic reference.

Very helpful

Love this app. I'm an avid fisherman and always looking for new and improved knots. The illustrations make it very easy to follow along. This app has saved me tons of money on fishing lures

Fun

Good little resource

Needs more

Great illustrations. Very useful when you know what knot to use. However it needs information to guide you to the right knot to use. Also, I wish each knot had more information about it. Very short vague descriptions they are. It would be helpful if there were specific examples of real world uses. Trivia related to each knot, if known, would be an added plus and carry with it 5 stars.

Fantastic app

Very clear and easy-to-follow instructions. And they just keep adding more and more useful knots!

Blondesdaddy

Clear and practical.

Easy to visualize.

I found this very handy for fishing knots I use occasionally. Graphics are good.

Excellent Reference

Handy app. Knot instructions well done and easy to follow

Love this

Great app! Very informative

Excellent reference for knots

This guide is simple to use, well written with clear illustrations. The full version, for me at least, has every knot I could ever use. Well worth the purchase.

Awesome app for beginners!

I'm a complete novice when it comes to knots, but the step by step pictures had immediate effect. The explanations of what the knots are used for helped me determine what I wanted learn next! Highly recommend it!

Good Knots

Very nice app

Great Learning App

I've used this since the first release way back when. They have kept the app updated and it runs smoothly. I love the clear diagrams and the descriptions of the usage and characteristics of the knots. This app loads quickly and has clear diagrams. I can practice my knots where ever I am. Plus my request that the water bowline get added was answered! A great example of a simple great app.

Easy to follow guide

This is one of the first apps I downloaded when in got an iPhone in 2009 and it's still on my phone, having survived many "app purges" for more space. I don't use it often, but it's been extremely helpful several times over the years.

Useful and easy to use

Five stars. It's well organized and easy to follow.

Very useful app.

Use this app all the time. Even turned a few on to it to get themselves so they would quit bugging ME to tie things for them. Awesome app. Only suggestion I would make is pertaining to being able to differentiate between which end of rope is on top, or below when trying to tie knots and bends. Sometimes it is hard to tell for someone with an older mobile device, or inadequate vision. Other than that, best app I've used.

Great reference for outdoorsmen

I am involved with Boy Scouts & this app has helped several new scouts learn knots.

Perfect for beginners and experts alike

I had never tied a knot, hitch, or dealt with rope before this app! It has helped me learn how to tie the most advanced and simple knots there are! I highly recommended this app for anyone who will ever have to tie a knot!
