    Knots 3D
    Knots 3D v1.3 Universal app for iPad and iPhone released on the App Store!

    Knots 3D will give you a whole new perspective on knots! Draw, Zoom, Flip, Rotate! Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 45? or a full 180° so you can see the back of the knot? Use the 360° tool to spin the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3D! As the knot is drawn, pause and play to see all the ins and outs (Something about a rabbit going up the hole, around the tree, and back down the hole :) )

    This release adds 15 new knots with many additions to the boating and fishing categories.

    New knots for v1.3 include:
    • Albright Special
    • Anchor Hitch
    • Blood Knot
    • Buntline Hitch
    • Improved Clinch Knot
    • Constrictor Hitch
    • Lanyard Hitch
    • Perfection Loop
    • Rolling Hitch
    • Round Turn & Two Half Hitches
    • Running Bowline
    • Surgeon's Loop
    • Trilene Knot
    • Uni Knot
    • Uni-to-Uni Knot

    Thanks for checking it out. At .99 it is priced much less than some similar apps that go for as much as $4.99 and none of those have the 3D functions that make this app so cool: Namely the ability to rotate the knot 360 degrees and zoom in (at the same time)!

    Very cool.

    In my youth as a boy scout I learned a lot of knots and I can't honestly remember how to tie more than 4 of them. Now i don't need to remember :)
