    "Knots 3D is a pretty good app for climbers, but I wouldn't count it among the best. It helps climbers know how to tie the knots they need when they are on a climb. But I think other apps, ones that plan routes and provide information about climbing, like reviews of the best places and that kind of thing, would be more important to most climbers, it's what I value more."
