Review by Siskel and Ebert

I love this app! - Great simple app that is easy to use and very clear. No bugs so far. To find a knot guide at Barnes and Noble it is going to cost you around $4.99-$9.99, so this app at $2.99 is a great deal. If you're anything like me, and are terrible at making knots, this app is for you! Concise and clear instructions.

Review by WallMaxx

DOES NOT WORK!!! - Does not run on my 2011 MBP 2.5 GHz 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3 (Mavericks 10.9.1) Works on iPhone only. On my mac, it just bounces its icon in the dock for about 30 seconds then stops bouncing. The only option is to Force Close. I recommend not buying this app until it’s fixed. I’ll be the first to praise it if it works.

Does not work - It worked at some point. It does not work now. Icon just bounces and the app has to be forced to quit. No display at all.

Review by athensjim

good, but needs to be developed more - This is basically a good app and would be worth five stars if it was developed a little more. It's got lots of knots, and the step-by-step views are good for teaching. But it has the look and feel of a minimalist app; a lot of functions I take for granted are missing. For instance, there's no help file, so I had to guess and play around to discover things like how to add knots to the favorites menu. Also there's no way to get a full-screen view or even increase the size of the window. I hope they add those things to a later revision.
