The Knots is another app for learning how to tie knots. It is a bilingual apps with a few knots in the free edition and 3 packages to buy the knots you really need.
the menu is 2 levels either alphabetical, by areas or by families. The knots are shown in a standard step by step with very high quality photos.
Description from the company
The Knots application allows you to take with you anywhere knots that it is sometimes difficult to retain, whether to stretch your tent, make a bow tie, or even achieve a rappelling.
The different areas covered are:
– The Sailing Knots
– The Climbing Knots
– The Fishing Knots
– The Camping Knots
– The Scouting Knots
but also knot for Ties!
And if it’s not enough, you will find knots by Families:
– The Looping Knots
– The Lashing Knots
– The Hitch Knots
– The Stopper Knots
– The Running Knots
– The Coil Knots
For each knot you can find a description with its use, its characteristics and especially its implementation step by step photos.
The application is free, but all knots are not activated. There are various packages to activate knots. The pack number is indicated under the name in the list of knots. When you buy a pack you buy all the knots associated with this package.
It is a very fine app well presented with very good pictures and step by step.
I love the idea that it is bilingual while I haven’t verify the translation in either way.
The grouping is also very useful but the choice of pack is not well documented. You must find what you want and you can’t find easily what you’ll get. I’d rather pay $5 to get all than to buy one pack to find that another one would have given me all I needed.
If I may say another non constructive critic, what a stupid name!
