I wish there were a way to look up the best knots for a specific use case, like "I need to hang a clothesline" or "I need to lift an object." Maybe an additional category that lists common use cases or tasks and shows the relevant knots. Even adding a way to just search keywords in the descriptions would be helpful. In any case, this is a great app and is handy in a surprising amount of situations.

This is a fantastic app. From a practical standpoint it would be awesome if I could quickly search an application hierarchy to select which knot I should use. However, the graphics are great, viewing options (being able to SCRUB, reverse, zoom in, flip directions) and having a little history really makes this app a great value. Thanks (I own a hobby farm with horses)

I've been using this App for over 3 years. It's the best one on the market that I've found. You can control the speed of the video and slow it down or even back it up to see a difficult routing, rotate it, and keep a list of your favorites. Sometimes, there is an advantage to seeing the hands tie a knot, such as the Alpine Butterfly wrap method, and other techniques to tie these knots that this App doesn't show, but it's still my go to App for reminders and practicing.
