Top Notch and 5 Stars - This is the one Sudoku you have been looking for! The Developer: Absolutely the best! I purchased the iPhone version of this app about two years ago. Throughout that time, Mr. Linhart, the developer, has been consistantly responsive to customer concerns and ideas. Bug fixes are always promptly released and feature requests are taken seriously. The App Itself: Game play is smooth and easy. The learning section contains a wealth of information with examples that actually make sense. The puzzle ratings are well thought out and accurately reflect the effort necessary to solve each puzzle. Hints are available, if you need them. The pencil mode and coloring scheme are comprehensive and cover all the solving methods a user could want. I'm thankful that I get to write such a favorable review for an App that has it all!

Review by MJHaderlie

Poor - It may be unfair but the standard for me was set by sudoku2 on iPad. By comparison this one is poor. Graphics are hard to read. Gameplay is odd and seems to hesitate when checking entries.

Review by Yet Another Star Man

Very nice sudoku interface - There are obviously a lot of sudoku games out there. So why should you get this one? I really like the interface. It is easy to play on both my Mac laptop and on my Kindle Fire. It gives me the information I want in trying to solve the puzzle. There are wide range of difficulties of new puzzles available every day. If you want to stick with one difficulty, it will generate new random puzzles for you. But the best thing I like is the hints tutorial interface. If you ask for a hint, it might tell you to look for some technique that you have never heard of. You can then have it teach you how that method works, and go through a very nice tutorial on it. So it teaches you as you go.

Review by wildlifelvr

Love this game!! - I have this Sudoku game version on all my devices, and I play the game daily. I really like the large level selection, so you can incrementally work toward solving more complex puzzles, and there seem to be an infinite number to solve. You can save an unfinished puzzle, and go back to it. If you are new to the Sudoku experience, there are tutorials to strategies to solve the puzzles. It is user friendly and I never seem to have any issues or glitches with updates. The app always performs well and is truly enjoyable!!

Review by La Beck

I play everyday - I love this little app. I play it at least once each day. First, I had the free one; then I was happy to upgrade to this. The creator has done a nice job of keeping it up to date.

Review by pipsooz

My computer randomly locks up with this app - I would give this five stars, because I really like the way this works. But I have a big problem with it locking up my computer. I tried the free version first and had that problem a lot. The paid version advertised that it was updated to work with new operating systems, but I had the same problem with this one. I really like the fact that there are new puzzles every day, so I can try multiple puzzles at different levels.
