Wevertown, New York - MyNature today is pleased to introduce MyNature Fishing
Knots 1.0 for iOS, their new Reference app that features computer generated, 3D
animations of knots being tied, plus illustrated, step-by-step written
instructions. Including the 13 knots most commonly used today in fishing, the
app's continuous, highly realistic animations can be stopped at any time,
studied, and then restarted. There are four chapters, each with text,
illustrations, and an animation: Tie Line to a Reel, Tie Line to a Hook, Join
Two Lines, and Tie a Loop. MyNature Fishing Knots is an invaluable reference
source for anyone who has ever had difficulty tying a fishing knot.

13 Knots Included:
* Arbor Knot is used to tie the line to the arbor (central post) of the reel
* Uni Knot is a terminal knot most often used in tying a line to a hook, swivel,
or lure
* Snell Knot was first used to tie a line directly to the shank of eyeless hooks
* Palomar Knot is a terminal knot used for attaching monofilament or braided
line to a hook, swivel, or lure
* Trilene Knot is recommended for use with fluorocarbon lines as a terminal knot
* Improved Clinch Knot is recommended for use with light to mid-weight lines as
a terminal knot
* Nail Knot is used in fly-fishing to attach a leader to the fly line or the fly
line to the backing
* Blood Knot is used for joining two lines of similar diameter, e.g. tippet and
leader
* Surgeon's Knot is one of the most used and easiest to learn of all joining
knots
* Albright Knot is used in tying any two lines together, irrespective of their
diameters
* Perfection Loop is used to tie a loop in the end of a line or leader
* Surgeon's Loop is used most often in fly-fishing to attach the leader to the
fly line
* Rapala Knot is used to tie a line directly to a lure (not a swivel)

Fishing Knots 1.0 applies modern, 3D computer animation technology to help solve
an old problem: learning how to tie fishing knots. Even with the benefit of a
live instructor, knot tying can be challenging, especially when trying to learn
it in the field. There have been instruction manuals and even videos, but
Fishing Knots goes beyond most previous efforts. Unlike some videos, where there
are a series of still photos of the knot in various stages of its creation, this
app shows a continuous, smooth animation of the knot through every stage, from
start to finish. And it is superior to videos that show the construction of the
knot live, in close-up, because there are no hands or fingers to obscure any
detail. 

Photo-realistic, real-time animations of knot tying are the ideal way to clearly
see and understand the process. The animation can be stopped, reversed, and
re-started at will, making learning significantly easier than otherwise. The app
also includes step-by-step written directions for each knot with accompanying
drawings for reference.

"Now you can sit down with your iPad or iPhone, and learn in minutes how to make
all 13 of the most commonly used fishing knots," stated developer Jeff Greco.
"No matter how good your gear, you'll get better results using better knots."

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* iOS 3.2 or later (iOS 4.3 tested)
* 32.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
MyNature Fishing Knots 1.0 is only $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide
exclusively through the App Store in the Reference category. Review copies are

Nature Apps

This past week saw the addition of four more of our National Park Tracks, Trees & Wildflower Apps released for the iPhone. Yellowstone National Park, Glacier, Grand Teton and Grand Canyon National Park join Yosemite and Sequoia Kings Canyon in our growing list of Nature Apps.  The MyNature National Park App series are specific identification field guides for animal tracks, tree and wildflowers species found within each national park.  You’ll be able to identify over 30 mammal tracks, native trees and anywhere from 120 to 240 wildflowers depending on which national park your visiting.

Were proud to add the National Park series of nature apps to our growing list of available apps for your iPhone.  Our flagship app MyNature Animal Tracks which recently underwent a major update and the MyNature Tree Guide is currently in the shop where were updating that popular guide with a new, sleeker UI and adding a few dozen new species of trees to the list.

What’s in store for future Nature Apps with us?  Well, we would like to expand our National Park series with 1 or 2 new parks in the coming year. Within the next few weeks our newest app on Fishing Knots should be in the app store. That app will feature 13 common fishing knots and is a preview of what to expect in the MyNature Fish Guide which were hoping to have out by the Spring of 2012, just in time for Trout season!
