    This is the best app to learn (or remember) how to make so many different kinds of knots! Used this app a lot when my son was going through Boy Scouts.

    I have learned many knots. But sometimes I forget how a particular knot is made, or I want an easy reference that i can share with a friend or a child that is learning. This app allows the user to review and repeat the well illustrated steps as many times as needed--without needing to ask anther person to show it to them again.

    Have used the website so the app was a natural selection. Would love to see breaking strength identified some way on the graphic and also which fishing knots are good for braid

    I found the YouTube video so useful I installed the app. Its good but a bit pricey given the limited number of knots listed
