Superb in every way - 5 Stars!
I'm a fairly handy guy (surgeon) and rely on several knots in my practice. Nevertheless I'm pretty hopeless at learning new knots and remembering them, even though I'm a sailor and do some fishing. Knots 3D is the answer. I love every aspect of the app.
Great App - 5 Stars!
I have 4 knot apps, and I use this one the most. As a firefighter rope skills are a must and this app helps keep me "knot prepared". The zoom and step through the knot using finger gestures is real handy. The author updates this app with new knots often. I recommend this app.
* As per appfigures.com on 9/11/2012

Powerful search capabilities will help you quickly find information by matching just part of the UN/NA number or material name. Cargo Decoder also supports Voice Search to make searches even faster.
Protective distance information,toxic inhalation hazards, and ERG2012 reference pages are just a touch away for emergency responders and HazMat personnel. A simple swipe quickly moves you to the information you need.
Cargo Decoder is my way to give back to the first responders who are always there for us. Cargo Decoder for Android will always be free and will never contain ads. Cargo Decoder uses no network bandwidth so information will always be available even if the cell network is not.
Cargo Decoder runs on just about every device running Android version 2.2 and later.
Cargo Decoder now supports sharing of material details. Select a material and touch the Share icon. Create a notebook of materials found using Evernote (Evernote can add GPS information too). Share information to others via email or text messaging. Configure the information about the material you want to share in Settings. Important: Sharing with Facebook does not work even though Facebook adds itself to the sharing list. Facebook says the behavior is "by design"(https://developers.facebook.com/bugs/332619626816423)
If you like Cargo Decoder, please consider supporting it by purchasing the Cargo Decoder Plus Upgrade Key. Installing the Cargo Decoder Plus Upgrade Key unlocks special features added to say “Thank you!” to our supporters.
Cargo Decoder Plus features include:
* A unique view of all materials that correspond to a Guide page. This view will be useful if you see a placard or Guide number and want to know what material it might be.
* Access to both ERG2012 and ERG2008 reference pages.
Users who are not yet supporters can also use Plus features but will be periodically asked to consider become a Cargo Decoder supporter.
