App description: Knot Quiz is a fun application designed to test your knot knowledge and ropecraft! So you think you know your bights from your bends, your loops from your hitches? Give the free app a try and see how well you know 15 basic knots. Compare your scores to others on the leader board. The faster and more accurate you are at identifying knots, the more points you get! When you are ready, purchase add-on packs that add more advanced knots to the fray!

The knots are animated, showing you the ins and outs, overs and arounds, and up and throughs! A hint button lets you know what the knot is used for and what other names it is known by.

Animated knots include:
- Square(Reef) Knot
- Bowline
- Sheet Bend
- Clove Hitch
- Two Half Hitches
- Taut Line Hitch
- Timber Hitch
- Bowline on a Bight
- Overhand Knot
- Stevedores Knot
- Figure Eight
- Granny Knot
- Bow Knot
- Larks Head Hitch
- Running Knot

The Knot Expansion Pack (In-App Purchase) adds 20 more animated knots used in First-Aid, Pioneering, Sailing, Fishing, and Climbing.

- Fishermans Knot
- Figure Eight Bend
- Zeppelin Bend
- Lariat Loop
- Surgeons Knot
- Cats Paw
- Double Sheet Bend
- Fishermans Eye
- Sheepshank
- Carrick Bend
- Figure Eight Loop
- Double Overhand Knot
- Water Knot
- Loop Knot
- Hitching Tie
- Tiller's Hitch
- Ashley's Bend
- Thief Knot
- Jar Sling Knot (Spanish Hackamore)
- Grief Knot

nynix's comments:
So you think you know your bights from your bends, your loops from your hitches? Test your knot knowledge and ropecraft with this app! Don't know much about knots? That's ok! The beautifully rendered and animated knots show you how to tie them and a hints button tells you what the knot is used for.

Knot Quiz Companion App: Animated Knots 3D

Animated Knots 3D

v1.0 Available in the App Store today

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/animated-knots-3d/id453571750?mt=8

As we got feedback on our popular Knot Quiz app, we kept hearing: "Why don't you use these incredible 3D knot animations in a reference app!" So, we took the animations we had in the quiz app and made it even better!

Animated 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 90? 180? Use the 360 tool to rotate 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. Use the Zoom or Flip options to get a different perspective. How cool is that?!

Now, I realize this isn't a game per se, but it sure is a lot of fun to play with! It should also help with your high score on Knot Quiz! Hopefully I am not out of line posting this here.

Check out a video of the app in action here:

A couple of updates:

Animated Knots 3D went all the way to #9 last week in the US Reference (Free) category. After the free giveaway we only raised the price to .99 cents (still half off the original 1.99) and we are now the #1 Paid Reference app in the Netherlands, Belgium and Portugal and #2 in France for a couple of days. Thank you Europe! We will keep the price at .99 at least through the end of this week so get it at a discount while you can!

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/animated-knots-3d/id453571750?mt=8

Also, I wanted to let you know that the Knot Quiz game app has been updated and submitted to Apple and is waiting for approval. It should be released to the iTunes Store in about a week.

Again, thanks to all of you who have taken your time to check out our apps!

Animated Knots 3D will give you a whole new perspective on knots! Draw, Zoom, Flip, Spin! Have you ever wondered what a knot looks like rotated 41? 90? Or look at the back of the knot from 180. 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. Use the Zoom or Flip options to get a different perspective. Can your knot app do that?
