Knots 3D - Educational Tool Free for limited time (IOS) - Usually £2.99

★ Anniversary Celebration! FREE TODAY AND TOMORROW ONLY! ★ Knots 3D was introduced to the app store one year ago. Since then we've added a lot more knots and features and have become one of the top mobile knot apps! Grab a piece of rope and have fun!

★ Tie, untie and rotate 80 knots with your finger in 3D! ★

Knots 3D, our popular how-to knot app, will give you a whole new perspective on knots! Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 40° or maybe 90°? Or maybe you want to see what a Trilene knot or Constrictor knot looks like from the back? Use your finger to spin the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3D!

Choose from 80 different knots and see how they're tied in incredible detail. Watch the knot draw itself or use your finger to tie and untie the knot. Its easy to see where the virtual rope goes in and out and around. (Something about a rabbit and a hole and a tree right? ) Zoom in on the knot to get a closer look or flip it around for another perspective. Can your old school knot app do that?!

Product Features and Functions

Very Useful - ★★★★★
Great guide for knot how to's. 3D ability puts it to the top compared to others. Nice job dev's.

Great App - ★★★★★
I really like this app, I have 4 knot apps, and I use this one the most. As a firefighter rope skills is a must and this app helps keep me knot prepared. The zoom and step through the knot using a finger gestures is real handy. The author updates this app with new knots often. I recommend this app.

Once again these sort of posts should have a designated section for games etc.

Why? It's still a freebie.
Here is a great Android alternative which is free ALL the time:

Fantastic, thank you.
Make sure you select the right one, Knots 3D Free is not the full version and only has 33 knots in it, its the other version of the app with 80 free knots that's free today and tomorrow.
Thanks a lot - this should be good for learning to tie knots! Heat added!
Obviously not free anymore, although just had a look and it's 69p, still better than £2.99.
Not free anymore
