What's New in Version 2.2
- added Frensh localization (thanks to Pierre-Yves)
- support for retina display
- timer continues when loading a saved sudoku
- number pad doesn't move when tapping on numbers
That there are some variations on the original soukous that are entertaining is one of the best things about this app. I had a little difficulty figuring out how to enter possibilities and how to dismiss numbers that I decided were incorrect. All it takes is a double tap on the square. Options available mean I can set it up to meet my expectations. I'm buying the option.
Would be nice to scan a puzzle with my iPhone or iPad instead of adding the puzzle manually
Maybe there will be an update coming
Settings not working
I have loved this game for years, but with no updates it is now showing some quirkiness. None of the settings are "sticking", that is, they revert to OFF when I try to turn them ON. Time for a new Sudoku game or perhaps we can hope this app will be updated.
