The free version (available on Blackberry, Droid, iPhone and iPad) offers pictorial and written instructions to guide you through 12 different knots.

Even those among you who can pull off a four-in-hand in your sleep might want to consider widening your repertoire of knots. It gives your whole look a subtle kick, taking you from fine to fabulous. And with the app right on your phone, you can take your knot-tying tutorial anywhere.
