The Best, Really!

I played lots of Sudoku when looking for the best App; This is it. Sudoku Joy has everything: training for beginners, lots of defined difficulty levels so you can improve but not get too frustrated, hints and help if you need it, including undo and 'undo until solvable'!, more puzzles whenever you want more than the new daily set. You can even upload your own puzzles with a photo, so you can do the sudoku from the paper or wherever, but still have all of the App's hints and undo features (No more leaving a half done puzzle when you can't figure out your error!).

This IS the best Sudoku App. Look no further!

Used to be fun! No longer.

I had this app a few years ago and loved it. It used to have small, unobtrusive advertising banners which did not interfere with a player's concentration on the game. Recently I reinstalled this app. I enjoyed resuming play, though I was occasionally annoyed by the now active ad banners that periodically flickered across the top of the screen, flashing invitations to purchase the paid version of Sudoku in order to make the ads go away. I got used to the annoyance and ignored it. Tonight, the ad banner is unceasingly active and distracting to the point where I could no longer enjoy the game. I deleted the app. I refuse to be harassed into paying for an app that starts out free, then makes itself obnoxious in order to provoke customers into paying. That is blackmail. Either charge for a decent app up front, or make it free and fun to use, not irritating.

Awesome! Look no further, you have arrived!

I have tried So Many other sudoku apps trying to find the right one, & this one is By Far the Best!!! My search for the Perfect Sudoku is Over! I play it Ever day! The option & the different skill levels to choose from as well as being able to learn new techniques is amazing! You can even scan in puzzles from the newspaper, sudoku book, or anywhere you find a puzzle, all with your camera! There are adds but they have never bothered me & they don't disrupt the puzzle they just hang out above or below. I guess I get so concentrated in the game I hardly remembered they existed.
