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.




  • Indispensable

    By BBBB1970
    Every so often, comes along an app that is indispensable. This is one of those. I use it all the time to show guys where I work how to do correct knots for rigging.
  • This is a must have app for everyone!

    By Jäger & Clyde
    I’ve used this app so many times, from fishing to camping and around the house. So helpful! I just wish I could remember all of my favorites.
  • Superb and Indispensable!

    By The Krautrocker
    I have been using this app for a few years now and I can’t say enough about how awesome it is. If you think you might be interested in learning more about knots and knot tying; if you kinda like, like, love or can’t live without tying knots...well then this is for you! Not only do the Grogono’s offer a substantial multitude of knots to get you off and running, they provide excellent commentary on each. The animations illustrate perfectly how to execute the knots. This is really valuable as books, at times, fail miserably in this area-particularly for the more complicated knots. The value of this app is among the best out there. What a tremendous resource, what a tremendous accomplishment. Bravo fellas!! It took me a couple years to get around to writing a review for this app and I am more excited about it now than when I purchased it. Don’t hesitate. BUY THIS APP!
  • Excellent

    By KC-ILM
    It’s been many years since I was tested on knots and my recollection is a bit rusty. Not only does this have everything I need in the outdoors, it can also help with my full Windsor and bow ties on formal occasions. Animations are well done and the step-through feature is fantastic.

    Now when I go to my favorites list it takes me to the knot list and will not scroll. The screen locks up. Otherwise I love the app.
  • Super Helpful

    By Sambrains
    I use this app all the time when I'm in a bind and can't remember got to tie a specific knot. They need to release a 64 bit version though to keep up with iOS.
  • This is the one!

    By puckpuck
    Deleted my other knots apps. Can't live without it!
  • Great app - Boy Scouts amazed

    By Abmaven
    I showed this app to staff at the BSA's Philmont Scout Ranch- all the staff and scouts who saw it absolutely loved it. Sadly I said it probably only cost a few dollars because I don't typically spend much on apps, but have used this so many times it's worth it.
  • Awesome app. Pedagogical and comprehensive

    By TheManWithThePlan-76
    I'm so happy that I stumbled upon this app. Other reviewers will be more in depth with their reviews, but I just wanted to add my voice to the list of satisfied customers. I love the ability to flip the video sequences and the explanations and possible issues related to each not listed in the info section are invaluable. This is an essential app for the do-it-your-selfer.
  • Very useful
