Knots 3D - App Review



If your idea of knots is limited to tying your shoelaces and a tie (and not necessarily a bow tie, at that) then, this will be a real eye-opener.

There are many types of knots and this App will show you no less than 87 of them.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
Having chosen your language, you are presented with a list of categories which include:

Boating
Camping
Climbing
Decorative
Fire & rescue
First aid
Fishing
Pioneering
Scouting
... as well as by type.

Simply choose your category and then pick the particular knot that interests you.

The App clearly shows how to tie the knot, added to which you can rotate the display horizontally and vertically, as well as pause and have a full screen display.

There are also detailed explanations about the knots, when and where they should be used, as well as variations.

Cost
The App costs $2.00.

Indispensability
If you are into boating, climbing, or fishing (for example) then, you no doubt already know your specialised tying techniques (especially if you are experienced). This App could act as a refresher, or get you out of trouble in certain circumstances.

Dependability
I can't honestly say that I have tested all the knots but those I did work as expected.

Security
There are no issues with the App; just make sure you always use the appropriate knot for your security (I guess that's the same issue really).

ACIDS Test Rating:

Specialised but great.
