[prMac.com] Highland, Utah - Independent developer, Nynix LLC today is proud to announce the release and availability of Knots 3D 4.5, an important update to their popular reference app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Knots 3D offers the ability to tie, untie, and rotate 118 types of knots using a convenient touch interface.
The app offers the ability to rotate a knot 360 degrees in 3D space, allowing anyone to view the entire structure of a knot in order to better learn how to tie it. While users can tie or untie the knot using the app's touchscreen interface, it also offers an animated demonstration of the knot tying technique. Users can zoom in on the knot for a closer look, or flip the knot for a different perspective.
"3D Knots was developed to aid scouts, climbers, fishermen, boaters, and others in tying the perfect knot, and using the correct knot for the given situation," says David Boren, creator of Knots 3D. "The app was released in September of 2011, and since then, we have been constantly improving the app, adding new features, and new knots. 17 new knots were added in our previous major release, bringing the total number of knots demonstrated to 118. We always listen closely to our users' comments and ideas, and have included a number of their requests in our app updates. We will continually work to make Knots 3D the best app of its kind."
