Basic but Free is hard to beat - Missing advanced features such as: [1] candidates for each square. I typically write the candidates on paper but having it on screen would be great. Maybe right click/control click to show candidates for a cell. [2] Nothing for scanning rows and columns. This must be done visually ( or on paper ) [3] Cell selection and entry directly from keyboard instead of requiring mouse clicks. Small gripes: [4] Can't save solved puzzles. [5] The overlaid keypad input window feels kludgy. Suggest direct input into each cell after user clicks on it. [6] Help window is difficult to scroll text. Need to make scroll bars or arrows visible. [7] "EXIT" on the home menu seems like inappropriate Mac nomenclature. Suggest using Quit. [8] Similar/related to #3, suggest standard Preferences menu accessible from the keyboard. [9] Would prefer to select my own background and not be limited to those supplied by the app. Likes: [10] No "in app" purchases. All is there and really free. Thank you to the author. [11] Grey background for 'given' cells is appreciated. [12] Visual notification of an obvious error ( e.g. adding '5' to a nine square region already containing '5' ) is appreciated. [13] It is FREE, so I don't have to buy something first to find out I don't want it.( i.e. Mac App Store doesn't offer product trials before purchase ) Lastly my rating. If this were a paid app I would give it 3 stars but since it's free I give it 4 stars. There is still a lot of effort here for the author to offer it freely.

Okay, Except for the UI - The app has to be ported from the iOS version. The only way to use it is point and click. Being on a MBP this is ver clunky. It would be better if you could use use arrow keys and numbers.

New update took thinking out - Before the update you could put a wrong number in and it would not correct you or if you you put your small notes in it didn’t clue you in either that it couldn’t go in that square. You had to catch your own mistakes and think problems through as a person. Now you figure out one number is correct and it removes that number from all other squares for you and highlights it if you try to use it. Basically you guess one right and you can finish a monster in 10 minutes tops. The old way kept you working for an additional 20 minutes or so. Also the monster is an easy level. The hard seems to be a little more of a challenge but not much. I like to work something through from begining to end not auto finish. I still play it but I wish I could undo the update.

Review by Big senior fan

Miss Muffet - The board from which to choose a number to fill the chosen spot on the sudoku should not cover the game board. There should be a “clear" button to remove the wrong input. Where’s the pencil feature? On higher, i.e. difficult level, the player should be able to utilize the pencil in feature. There should be an indication that a number is completely utilized. As the sudoku is solved, one or more numbers will be used up. The player needs to see this feature. I will play this game again once the updates to incorporate the above suggestions are done. Thank you.

app is annoying - the grid doesn’t have bold lines to separate the boxes, this bothers me a lot. when you want to enter a number the display covers the entire grid. so annoying.
