One Big Flaw
I've been playing Sudoku daily for 20 years on numerous devices and have purchased many such apps for my iPhone and iPad. The best Sudoku apps let you choose a number and then place it into multiple squares without having to reselect the number. That is, you select the number 3 and then can add that number into any of the 9 squares in rapid succession. This app gets it backups and makes you chose the placement square first and then the number to put in it. This method forces you to spent far too much time hitting numbers instead of playing the game. As a result, it takes 3-4 times more time to play the same game. Too bad because otherwise they got all the other components rights. Will not be using this app unless they address this issue. Would recommend you buy :) Sudoku + instead. I keep buying new Sudoku apps and keep returning this one as my app of choice. It allows you to focus on strategy instead of pressing so many number buttons.
This is a no-frills Sudoku with near-perfect gameplay. The annotations system is intuitive and simple. The only core feature it is lacking is the ability to toggle between number-then-cell and cell-then-number modes (as another user pointed out). Some other features it needs to be a 5-Star app is the ability to save a game for later, and archive completed games. As it is, once you start a new game, your previous one is gone, which is a bummer since the Enter Your Own Sudoku feature would lend itself perfectly to sharing games and competing with friends for completion times. After that, there could be some kind of social-network integration, but that is a much larger undertaking.
My wife has been an enthusiastic paper-and-pencil sudoku player for years, but all the scratching out seemed so messy and confusing that the game didn't appeal to me. The CrowdCafé implementation of sudoku removed this barrier to my enjoyment of the game, and for the past two days I've had a lot of fun solving easy, medium, and hard sudokus. Being able to annotate each cell in the grid with potentially correct numbers and to erase those numbers step by step while solving the sudoku eliminates the mess and confusion that turned me off. Great job, guys!
