Good clean app, no requirements that the app have access to phone identity or other stuff apps have no business knowing. Has to be used on a clean grid, no scribblings. When the app gets the solution, the screen goes from red to white with the solution superimposed over it. Used my LG phone on a 9x9 grid, might have worked better if the lighting was better. Wish there was a way to save the solution other than freezing the screen hence the 4 stars
Lots of potential This app could be great, but due to bad documentation, bad UI, and unreliability, it is unusable. I got it to work once out of the 20 or so times that I tried it, and even then, the results were displayed for about half a second before disappearing. It would've been helpful if the app asked me to save a screenshot with the results so that I don't have to keep holding the phone in the air!
I'm so glad I tried this. Now I know it's not worth its money. And this is a FREE app. But all it does, is show a red version of what the camera sees. Nothing more, nothing less. I can do without!
It's Freaky! This is very impressive for an app that hasn't been updated in almost a year. At first I thought it was a prank until I found an online Sudoku with nice big bold numbers, and it works very well with that, printed or on screen. The numbers are legible enough to see the solution is correct, and it happens in an instant. Wouldn't it be cool to have a similar App that analyzes a chess game? Or scores games like Carcassonne! This app Force Closes and corrupts the Camera requiring a soft reset (an OS issue? Who knows), so I can't rate it very high, but I can't uninstall it just yet, either. Excuse me while I go blow people's minds. Acer A500.
Deserves 5 Stars, Easy Its bewildering that some people don't give this miraculous app 5 stars! It solves within 20 seconds, and it solves correctly! Nothing compares to this, you won't regret downloading.
It works on Samsung galaxy s2 I got this to work fine on a standard newspaper sodoku, but i had trouble getting it to work on a sodoku book. It appears that the app had trouble recognising certain numbers such as 1 and 7. A better UI could be added to include a 'freeze screen' button (easier than using two fingers to tap screen). Other than that this application rocks!
Completely rewrote the image capture part, processing remains unchanged. So far tested with Nexus S and Nexus One. I hope that this will make it work on Droid phones and the new Samsung Galaxy S2, but I have no test devices available, so it is all guess-work. Please let me know through comments if it improves/deteriorates compatibity.
