This is the second knots app I review and I’m not satisfied. Yes it’s a good idea to have added animation to knots tying. For most of the knots, it surely adds some light on the order and way of threads but it is not, IMHO, the ultimate solution. And one of my students bought it and spent a complete night trying the knots and was not the utimate knot tier neither advanced tier on the next morning.
Some time too much knots is too much. Do you really want a knots encyclopedia on your iPhone or a fast reference card. By the way, will you take out your phone while on the water to find how to tie your fly on your leader? That’s the mystery of these knots app.
