Android / iOS versions
NOTE: The Android and iOS versions of “Ian's Laces” were developed almost ten years apart. As a result, the two apps are quite different! Please see the relevant sections below to discover what each version includes.
Ian's Laces for Android
The Android version of Ian's Laces app began development back in 2019, with the current version released in Feb-2023.
This app has the most up-to-date library of all of this website's shoe lacing methods and shoelace knots. All of the images have been remastered at up to 16× the level of website detail for sharp, clear display.
In addition, this app includes Italian translations thanks to a very generous contributor, VladiG.

Ian's Laces for iOS
Ian's Laces app was first developed for the original iPhone and iPod Touch back in 2009 (more than a decade ago!) and continued to be improved and adapted for the newer iOS devices (iPad, iPhone 4, 5, 6, etc.) right until 2015.
This iOS app thus has fewer Shoe Lacing Methods than the newer Android app. Each method has one or more static lacing diagrams for the different variations.
On the plus side, the iOS app includes the fun interactive virtual shoe: “Create-a-Lace”.
