This application is based on waterproof plastic cards which have been sold and acclaimed for many years. The app is simple and efficient. The drawings are clear and easy to understand. Even with their monochromatic tint, the drawings are very easy to understand. The knots are numerous and versatile. So it is the perfect reference.
If you know your basic knots and either search for a new one or to find the tying of one you can’t remember, it is the perfect app. It’s not the best app as it doesn’t use the many advanced capabilities of the iPhone but could it be better if we were able to go to next page in tilting the phone?
So everything seems to be there for the perfect app but I feel something is missing. I have 70 knots to choose from or at least 31 fishing knots to choose among. I have the need of 3 : line to leader, leader to tippet, tippet to hook. Which are the best? In which case, I’ll use one or the other. They have reference cards for saltwater and ultimate why this is not used in the app? Why not a wizard to find the knot. The last question is if so many apps exist with so many different way of demonstrating the knot, is it because none of them are REALLY the best one? Or because not everybody can understand it with the same tools.
