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 (2019)
The all-new Android version of Ian's Laces app has just been released in May-2019. It's still early days, so it doesn't yet include all of the features of the iOS app – in particular the Shoelace Knots (which will be added in an upcoming release.)
On the plus side, this app has the most up-to-date library of all of this website's shoe lacing methods, each remastered at 4× the level of website detail for sharp, clear display.
Current Android App = Version 1.2.0
There's four different flavors of the Android app: Standard, HD, Free and Lite:
Ian's Laces for Android
Ian's Laces for Android – HD version
Ian's Laces for Android – Free version
Ian's Laces for Android – Lite version
Ian's Laces for iOS (2015)
Ian's Laces app was first developed for the original iPhone and iPod Touch back in Aug-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. In addition, this app includes Shoelace Knots plus the fun interactive virtual shoe: "Create-a-Lace".
Current iOS App = Version 5.0.0
There's two different flavors of the iOS app: Standard and Lite:
Ian's Laces for iOS
Ian's Laces for iOS – Lite version

Ian's Laces is literally crammed with content! The paid versions contain more than 1,000 images, including diagrams of every lacing method – every variation – every step. All images have been carefully tuned by Ian for different screen resolutions in order to support everything from small-screen handsets to large-screen tablets.
Unlike the website, everything is included in this app – NO internet access is required. Ian's Laces allows you to access any lacing method super-fast and without network charges – even while on the move.
