REVIEWS FOR PREVIOUS VERSIONS
----------------------------
The Coolest Ever! - ★★★★★
Easy to understand and use, very informative with clear instructions on how to makes hundreds of knots step by step, divided by categories for easy navigation, truly inspiring and beautiful knots. Enjoyable to just watch, practical and relevant to learn. This is the second App enticing enough for me to actually buy.

New to knots - ★★★★★
This is my first review. I would pay twice the amount for this app. I would give it ten stars if I could. It can be done step by step unlike others I've seem that you have replay a dozen times to get the same results. Thank you for you time and effort.

Worth it - ★★★★★
The ablility to flip between left and right handed tying and the addition of more knots are just what this app needed. Updates and real life application are what make it worth the money.

Best.App.Ever - ★★★★★
I'm a US Coast Guard Veteran (Boatswains Mate). I just joined the Sailing club and this a great refresher and smart way to learn new knots. Clear and to the point. The animations are great, and the pause feature is invaluable. I also like that it's broken down in categories so I can just focus on the sailing ones first.
