Fun and as challenging as you want it to be!

Something happened to this game. It started to freeze upon launching so killing it and restarting worked as a workaround. But now it does not even start upon restarting it.
Beat Sudoku App, some glitches
by Bellgrl on 2021/03/03 04:43
This is my favorite Sudoku app! I love the look of the pencil marks, the way it will highlight all of your chosen number to help see the ones you don’t have yet, and the different difficulty levels and timers/standings. I’ve probably played 5-6 different apps and this one is the best. But for the last few weeks it has been freezing on start-up a lot... and in the last year some of the ads between games have had sound that plays even when my phone is on silence! I hate getting busted playing a game, and by a commercial no less!

It is fun, challenging and addictive. I love it. Be is that sound necessary? I would like to turn it off.
Broke
by Grandpa Sudoku on 2021/02/28 06:43
The latest update literally made the app unplayable. I can no longer enter numbers into the grid.
Great app, but there’s a weird bug
by Dyb^ on 2021/02/24 02:42
The numbers are clear and when you tap on the number the row and column are highlighted, which I like. Also, when you fill a number the penciled clues go away, which I like, too. There are two bugs I found. 1. when you reset a puzzle, sometimes the numbers are faded so you can’t fill them in; you have to press the eraser button to “clear” it. 2. The app makes a really quiet “chkkt” sound on repeat. Not only should the app make no sounds, but it drains my AirPods. On a side note, the expert puzzles have stumped me to the point where they were impossible to solve without brute forcing a guess and I don’t like that at all. Please make sure all the puzzles are solvable. -DYB

Crashing every time after a finished game

The screen is stuck and won’t upload the next game. Time to find another sudoku app
Missing autocomplete
by Dino Bistrik on 2021/02/07 02:07
Only one thing is missing and that is autocomplete. Once there is only 4 or 5 numbers are missing - you should be able to hit a button to autocomplete.
Bad update or something
by Tiggrtoo001 on 2021/02/02 06:04
What happed to the game. For the past few days when I open the game it freezes up. When is the next update to fix it.
Good!!

Satisfied with app
by Whizzlemagoo on 2021/01/29 18:26
I have been playing this on and off for a few years ! Easy to use. This app doesn’t have a lot of annoying ads like so many other games do!
Simple and great
by Alli67 on 2021/01/29 04:12
I’ve spent hundreds of hours on this app. I don’t like complicated apps and this gives me what I want without the things I don’t want. Easy to use, with the right features. Would recommend.
Saved My Eyesight
by Catfish399 on 2021/01/29 01:59
Love Sudoku and always thought I used this app way too much. I was diagnosed with age related macular degeneration a few years ago. I had the dry type which can cause blindness but very slowly. My doctor told me to download an Amsler eye chart (a grid chart like a big Sudoku) and use it to test my eyes. If lines become distorted come in immediately. That is a signal for wet macular degeneration which can cause blindness fairly quickly if not treated. Lazy me didn’t print a chart. Two years later I’m on the Sudoku app and noticed lines had become wavy. Called doctor and I’m now getting treatment for wet macular degeneration

I have tried a couple of Sudoku apps and this is very good. There are ads flashing away at the bottom.
Unplayable

Too many adds!

Too many adds and the purchase price is too high.
No longer opens
by 260345ca on 2021/01/06 18:13
Last update has rendered this, my favorite sudoku game on my iPhone, useless. It won’t open.
Used to be better
by Royearl on 2021/01/04 22:01
I like the game - when it works, but it frequently locks up on my iPad mini during an ad, giving no way to get back to the game. Several times I have deleted it, then reloaded. I’m about to give up on it. There are lots of other sudoku apps out there.
Best sudoku out there.
by maddoghasfleas on 2020/12/21 23:03
I’ve tried a bunch of sudoku apps out there and this is the best.
Best sudoku out there!
by I hope the maker reads this on 2020/12/20 05:37
This app is by far the best when it comes to sudoku apps. It has perfect format, it tracks your times, tries, fails, and records with the smoothest gaming action. If you don’t know sudoku you absolutely need to try this app maybe hit google to get the concept but once you understand it it’s awesome Iv been working my record fast round from about 3.5 minutes down to now just about two minutes!! But I’m determined to break that!
Greedy! $24 to stop ads
by iCe 911 on 2020/12/18 17:43
Great fun little game but no they just want money! Don’t download it! $24 to disable the ads and you can’t silence the ads even if you have sounds off fit the game.
Hardest Sudoku I ever played
by bigmike53 on 2020/12/15 00:37
Easy is indeed easy But when you choose hard or expert, good luck. It is challenging. Great game.
Great game
by Mawmawpower on 2020/12/13 13:53
I like the way you can mark where you think the number goes. The larger numbers are for the ones you know are right. Try it, you will like it!
Levels
by Felix the calico cat on 2020/12/10 22:39
Medium level is too easy and hard level is too difficult! Make the medium more difficult or the hard level easier. Thx
Easy to use!
by Im in love with superman on 2020/12/10 07:00
Sensitive buttons, simple to use. Wish it had a feature to let you know when an entered number is wrong
Game interruptus
by maksmomnstuff on 2020/12/09 16:45
This game is great except for the ads. They very aggressively interrupt your game, so as you are entering numbers some panoramic picture of a house interrupts the game and you have to close it entirely. This repeatedly happens, so even if you close the game and resume it, within seconds that same creepy ad interrupts. Repeatedly.
Ads ruined this game
by Cal606060 on 2020/12/09 16:08
I loved this app. I play at least a couple games a day. But, recently the ads have completely ruined it. They pop up in the middle of play and you have to click them to close it. Will delete if this continues much longer. There are a ton of other sudoku options available.
George
by NB George on 2020/12/08 22:54
Constant pop up is too annoying to continue using the app. Purchasing would shut of ads but at over $20 that’s not happening.
Too much hassle
by Point Richmond on 2020/12/08 21:44
I have had this game on my phone for a couple of years. They, of course would like you to pay them to turn off the ads. It used to be that you could just ignore the ads. Then they changed it so that every time you win a game it would launch an ad that would take over your screen. Not a huge problem except that you had to quit and relaunch the game every time. Now they have changed it so that an ad will take over your screen in the middle of the game. I just tried to play a game and an ad took over the screen six times before I gave up and quit. This ones leaving my phone hone for good. There is another app called Daily Puzzle which has no ads and doesn’t even give you the choice to send them money. Whatever their business plan is, I like it a lot better!
Ads ruin this again
by This game has cancer on 2020/12/07 15:24
This has been my go to for so long, but the ads have completely ruined it for me. Ads that take up the bottom of the screen keep popping up in the middle of games (taking up the whole screen) completely ruining any attempt to beat my times. I get the need to add them in and make a profit, but this is ridiculous, and I’m not willing to pay $25 to get rid of them. I’m sad that I’ll need to start over again on a new app, and leave behind my records, but this is awful.
Annoying adds
by Ccowens on 2020/12/06 20:03
This game was fun and challenging, that I until the annoying adds started interrupting the play of the game. Can no longer Finnish a game because of the interruptions. Don't bother getting this AP.
Simple awesome fun!
by US LFC Fan on 2020/12/04 06:13
Simple, easy, awesome, fun.
Something missing
by Snickie323 on 2020/11/29 21:14
I like to check off numbers as I complete placement of all 9. There’s no option for doing that, like a doodle margin. I feel I’m wasting time double checking what I can skip as I get to the end of the game.
Constant Pop-Ups over game
by stop pop-ups on 2020/11/27 22:42
Pop-ups every 10secs over game, can’t select number without clicking on the pop-up. Deleting!
Ads Obnoxious
by fish_charlie on 2020/11/27 15:59
Sometimes the ads shown in game will take over the full screen randomly like it’s playing a video. You need to swipe down to dismiss it. Which really interrupts the flow. Normally I’d just pay the remove the ads and support the developer. But they charge $24.99 to remove the ads. Which is RIDICULOUS. I’ve never seen an app charge that much before. Make it a reasonable price (few dollars) like every other app. Your app isn’t good enough to deserve $24.99 to remove ads.
Excellent game
by 2ACR on 2020/11/21 00:32
This is my go-to game especially when waiting at offices, on -lanes, etc. Really challenges logic skills and helps develop the ability apply rules.
Dont know why....
by Bridge fanatic on 2020/11/14 16:35
I loved this app. But it has become a real problem. On more than one occasion, it just goes black and I cannot access it. Need to delete and reload. Have already done so several times. Very annoying

Difficulty Level
by NRylou on 2020/11/09 10:29
Medium is too easy (starting with 32 numbers) and Hard is too difficult (starting with 24 numbers). There should be a level in between.
Just right for my morning
by hvt167 on 2020/11/07 12:01
I can not think of a way to improve this app. You can chose your difficulty and the results exactly mirror you choice. You can highlight a chosen # to quickly find the missing ones. You can select assumed choices if you wish. Just right!
keeps getting worse
by Crashd726 on 2020/11/05 06:58
No, it wants me to provide personal information all the time. Not going to do it.
Ads are intrusive
by 16510 on 2020/11/05 01:15
It is a pain in you know where to wait over 30 seconds to examine my time on a puzzle.
Game good. Some ads freeze the screen
by Djharper5 on 2020/11/02 22:36
I don’t mind ads when using a free app, but some of the ads on this site freeze the screen and I have to restart my phone - occasionally I have to delete the app.

Sudoku addiction

Very unsatisfactory customer service
by Samyusun on 2020/10/31 21:57
I have been using this app for a few years. I purchased the in-app ad free. Whenever I update my iPhone, the ad will pop up. Last time it was solved very soon. This year I got the new iPhone and same the ad popped up, have been writing to customer service several times, so far no more reply at all. I actually wanted to give zero star. I hope users who see this review think about it before downloading.

Annoying Ads

The amount of ads don’t f allow you to see the time after completing the Sudoku. Some of the ads can’t be close. It use to be a nice App.

Dies continuously with iOS 14!
by Neslake on 2020/10/24 16:06
I’m not logged in to Game Center (whatever that is, but then I never have been. IOS 14.0.1 is better. The app dies randomly but no more of that Game Center garbage. Hopefully the latest update will fix that. I now have IOS 14.1 and the latest update. I haven’t seen any problems and Sudoku is back to its best!

Unsolvable sudoku
by Toby Goodhue on 2020/10/13 03:26
I have used this app for a while now, and it's worked well up to this point. But I just played a sudoku and got down to 2 spaces, my only 2 numbers left were 3 and 7, and neither could go in the spaces.
Suddenly ads everywhere
by Sallyama on 2020/10/02 12:08
Fine game but now it’s filled with OBNOXIOUS ads. Even if you have sound effects turned off, it’s OBNOXIOUS, nerve racking noise invades a peaceful game. Congratulations, you’ve ruined your otherwise good game. On the positive side, it’s a good incentive to move on and enjoy more of life.
So fun, and as challenging as you want

Hard crashes with iOS 14, too many ads
by uRvGoTTi on 2020/09/22 22:27
I’ve been playing this app for years but with the new iOS it just hard crashes every few seconds and doesn’t save the game. Also the amount and length of ads is now ridiculous. I have to find a new sudoku app.
The best Sudoku app ever!

This app reads your clipboard
by JadenReyna on 2020/09/16 19:36
I don’t understand why this apps reads your clipboard. If you copy something from safari or messages and then open this app IOS will tell you it has pasted something from your clipboard. This is shady activity.
Highlight ALL
by Grampa_50 on 2020/09/09 13:39
I have been playing this game every day for a few years and enjoy doing it. There is however one upgrade I would like to see that no other game has. When you tap a number all of those numbers highlight. I would also like to see the entire block, row and column of ALL those numbers highlighted. So it shows a blank space on the grid where that number could be. Enjoy!
Too many ads
by Egritz63 on 2020/09/08 17:06
When I first downloaded this game, the ads were infrequent, maybe one every 10games. Now they are almost non stop. I play a couple of games and up they pop. What is worse is they are now 30 seconds long. I understand the need for ads - nothing in life is free - but they have gone too far. I’m finding another app

Nature valley ad interferes with concentration
by wls227 on 2020/08/22 16:42
I Will never buy a nature valley product because it interrupts my concentration and relaxing sudoku experience. Defeats the whole purpose and I HATE that product for annoying me! After 698 hours of playing I am forced to find another app! I don’t mind advertising, but every 5 minutes it is ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!

Great game. Have been playing it for years.
Solid sudoku app!
by nonprofitguuuuuuuurl on 2020/08/08 15:33
This is a great app! It’s got 4 levels and it will keep your time stats. It’s very easy to see/read and you can highlight all of one color or put in small “pencil” marks easily. Also if you fill in a box with a number, it will automatically erase pencil marks of the same number in the same row/section. A few annoying thing: Sometimes the difficulty levels seem inconsistent. There are times when both Hard and Expert are impossibly hard and then there are times when Hard is so easy it feels like Medium. Also sometimes hitting “New Game” crashes the program and you have to open it again. But the loading page doesn’t take too long. The ads usually come at the end of a game which is fine. They can be kind of long and/or loud so I always make sure to keep my sound off when playing.
Love the app
by HordyGordy on 2020/08/05 22:11

Used all my battery
by Suzsing on 2020/08/01 15:21
I love to play this game. The app was great for that, but something changed and it started draining my battery even when I wasn’t playing and the app was closed. I had to delete the app cuz my battery was dying. Very disappointed because I love the way you played.

ADS. ADS. ADS.
by vinny zip on 2020/07/17 09:02
I used to really enjoy this game when it first came out. Since then the logic and game construction has changed for the worse. Now they’ve added loud and obnoxious ads in addition to the constant and distracting banner ads. A nice pastime has been ruined by greed and crass ignorance.

Sudoku on iPhone
by acts25 on 2020/06/26 01:54
I just downloaded sudoku to my iPhone. I have played it on my iPad for years. Generally it is pretty good on iPhone, but it is hard to select 9 in the portrait view. I haven’t played the game yet in landscape. I really like this implementation better than any others on the market.

This game has obviously been changed...
by ZachryTHiggins on 2018/03/12 04:06
It’s been changed for the worse. I already commented about the new format giving too many clues by graying out numbers etc. There are no options to turn these off. I got a new phone and I had to update to latest version. I immediately noticed that I’ve either suddenly gotten really good at this game or the makers have dumbed it down. I play expert all of the time and I used to average about 20-25 minutes per game. (I have no clue whether that is good or bad. I play it for the challenge.) But with the update my games are done in under 15 minutes every time. I’m not that good! It is noticeably easier and not as fun. I know there is no other Soduko app out there as good as this one was. I searched. But making it easy does not win me over. You’ve lost me. I’ll check back next month to see if my paid for app has been updated back to its old self. ...Cliff
DO NOT APPLY SEPTEMBER 9 UPDATE
by Lara Rebooted on 2018/09/12 10:55
If you haven't updated your app yet and are still using a version from before September 9, 2018, DO NOT UPDATE. The game no longer works with that update. It will not even register that you are touching the screen. In spite of numerous reports and complaints, the developer has yet to do anything useful about it. Previous review: Simpler is better! After using a few programs with silly bells and whistles, this is definitely my favorite. It best replicates the comfortable feeling of doing the puzzle for yourself, rather than to necessarily beat the clock or hit a certain score. You have a clock if you want to beat it, but its presence is unobtrusive and pressure-free. You won't get hit by onerous penalties if you touch the wrong number or button (unlike a competing version that I have since uninstalled) and it's pretty hard to hit a wrong button anyway, because everything is arranged so well on the screen. If you DO feel competitive, you can check your position on the leaderboard and keep an eye on the clock, but none of the competitive aspects will ever get in the way of those times when you just want to relax with a favorite number puzzle. Get this Sudoku app and you'll forget all about the others.

I love this sudoku app. It has THE best setup / functionality compared to all other sudoku apps I’ve tried. I’ve played it basically every day during quarantine. However, there is one really big issue which unfortunately has caused me to have to find a new sudoku app: As I start to play (I mostly play on Hard if that’s relevant), my phone starts to get really HOT and the battery starts plummeting. I have an iPhone 8 Plus, and I’m fairly certain it’s not a phone issue because I have many other apps that I’m on throughout the day. My phone is totally normal for everything else but this app. If I open the app and start playing at 100% battery, it will be at 5% in about 20 minutes. My phone literally gets burning hot to the touch to the point where my fingertips are legit slightly burned (visibly a little red, but mostly not visible just can feel they are clearly burned). I know I sound like a crazy person and my friends were like what the actual F, but...it’s real! So. Yeah. 4 stars. TLDR - It burns.
Impossible to do...
by GrumpyPegasus on 2017/12/29 19:27
So, I had thought that I couldn’t finish the puzzles on the ‘hard’ level because I had it on that level of difficulty... but I always encountered the same problem... Every single time I tried a puzzle on ‘Hard’ difficulty, I would get the puzzle close to being done and then would not be able to make a single next move.. and this happened A LOT. I would come back to it the next day and double checked multiple times and still could not go anywhere with what there was unless I just guessed a number.... so I would have to end the game and start a new one. i have been playing sudoku for a very long time and have never had this problem before. And then today, I played on ‘Medium’ and the numbers that are already set have the 9s placed to where it’s impossible to put a 9 in a box section that needs a 9. I have a picture to prove it. It just makes no sense and the numbers given to start out with are poorly set up to where it’s impossible to solve. So now I’m thinking I wasn’t crazy when I couldn’t finish the puzzles on ‘Hard’ difficulty when that is usually the level I play on. Will be deleting...
Saved My Eyesight
by Catfish399 on 2021/01/29 01:59
Love Sudoku and always thought I used this app way too much. I was diagnosed with age related macular degeneration a few years ago. I had the dry type which can cause blindness but very slowly. My doctor told me to download an Amsler eye chart (a grid chart like a big Sudoku) and use it to test my eyes. If lines become distorted come in immediately. That is a signal for wet macular degeneration which can cause blindness fairly quickly if not treated. Lazy me didn’t print a chart. Two years later I’m on the Sudoku app and noticed lines had become wavy. Called doctor and I’m now getting treatment for wet macular degeneration
Unfortunate update
by San Jose438 on 2018/05/22 23:24
I like this app but wish I hadn't updated. Now the statistics (prev. scores) are hard to read and in a ridiculous scroll box. When you complete a game that makes a high score, you are no longer notified. It's galling that the developer calls these regressions 'improvements'. When does the next version come out? What I wish they would have fixed: my app consumes 400MB and climbing, most for app data. What could it be storing?? The board and scores consume a minuscule amount of space. Of course I could delete and reinstall, but I would lose my game records. Other vast improvements would be not disappearing the board the second it's complete; and improving the ad experience (esp. the obnoxious audio ones (usually I'm listening to my own music while playing)).
WHY DID YOU DO THIS???
by RedNanl on 2019/09/30 20:22
I have had this app and used it religiously for probably over a decade. I could obsessively play games for hours without interruption. I really loved this app. After a 6/13 update, I can no longer go from game to game seamlessly. Now, I have to sit and watch a 30 second ad and then I have to close the ad once the ‘x’ appears at the end of it. I am done with this app. As soon as I find a new app, this one will be deleted. As far as I am concerned, this has completely ruined my experience of playing sudoku in your app. Very disappointing. UPDATE: I stuck it out a few months hoping things would get better but it is now worse. We went from an add every few games to one after every single game and even sometimes when you leave a games in progress and then come back, there’s another ad. I get you need revenue but this is over the top. Today, I sadly deleted your app.
Used to be a great app
by idontwantanicknamethankyou on 2017/11/09 12:24
Update: I may be thinking of a different app made by ticbits but that doesn’t change anything. The latest update still seriously broke things. The app used to be made by ticbits (or similar name) and was great then. It must have been sold to someone that doesn’t know what they are doing because the thing has become the most annoying sudoku I have ever played. It crashes and proceeds to forget several of your previous moves. Tonight it crashed as I was putting in the last number in the last square and it forgot the entire game when I got back in. It has been long enough since the update that the developer should have done SOMETHING by now. Back out the current version and put the old one back in the store. Anything would be better than this. I know they are aware of the problem because they have responded to other reviews. Zero stars if I could!!!
It used to be good, but the ads have gotten over the top annoying.
by michellecairo on 2019/10/20 12:28
I never leave reviews but this app has gotten annoying. I’ve been playing it for years, and I was totally ok when there were ads at the bottom of the screen. They weren’t in the way while playing, but now when you finish a game a full screen ad comes up and if I’m listening to music it stops my music of course, which is annoying because it takes you out of the flow that it’s so nice while playing sudoku. If it keeps up I don’t know if I’ll keep playing this game because yeah ads are important and you may want to pay to get the ad-less version but sometimes you just want to play sudoku without paying and without stupid ads popping up while you’re playing.
Problems
by Patricia Painter on 2019/07/02 02:45
All of a sudden this game has been rendered useless because it continually freezes up while playing. Time to download a different sudoku app. 🙁 And since the last update, when all of the annoying ads came along, the game constantly crashes - you cannot play two games in a row without it crashing. The “resume game” option after a crash does not give you the board with the progress you had made before the crash - in fact, sometimes it gives you an entirely different puzzle. This used to be a very enjoyable app. Not any more. This gets worse by the day. Now, you can’t complete one game because the app either freezes or crashes. Why are you not fixing this problem???
Almost perfect....
by Royalfalls on 2018/07/28 22:27
Love that you can turn off any hints or highlighting that might offer assistance; EXCEPT when you've placed all nine of a number, that number grays out. Boo! No hints, no help. I want the ability to put too many fours out there if I'm not paying attention. Please fix that. I'm OCD, and those kinds of things bother me. That's my only complaint. Everything else is great. I especially love the stats. It keeps track of how many games you've played, and how many you've completed, and your top 10 best times for each skill level. This is the main reason I searched for a new app, because my old one didn't keep statistics the way I liked. But the graying out of a used up number may be a deal breaker for me.
Ruined a good thing with all the ads
by LizzieBitGL on 2019/11/12 10:27
Been using your app for years. Was a great thing even with the few ads that appeared here and there. Since the latest (recent) upgrade, the ONLY thing I noticed was an entourage of advertisements from start to end of game - no game improvements whatsoever despite the description that accompanied it. Please read, hear and respond to he hundreds of your customers who have said the same. A few ads here and there is to be expected but you’ve smothered the game with them and it’s hard to enter or leave it now. What good is your app and how will your investors gain anything when all your customers delete it? Please lighten up on the ads so we can start using your app again. It was our favorite - not any more. Thank you.
What happened??
by funnieguy89 on 2017/11/21 08:30
I loved this app!! It was fantastic! I’ve downloaded over a dozen other Sudoku apps in the past to find the one with just the right interface that wasn’t too intrusive, but still provided a few of the neat features like notes that auto-updated and highlighting of certain numbers. Then they go and update it with ads all over the place for their other games. Even for the paid version. This completely distracts from the game play and now I’m probably going to have to spend the next hour or two trying to find a new sudoku app... 😔
Sudoku for all levels
by SoCalBeachGirl99 on 2018/09/17 23:39
I’ve enjoyed this Sudoku for years. Depending on how much time or energy I have, I can play a level that suits me while still presenting a challenge. I used a different Sudoku app while learning to play because it had hints and guided help. I like this app because I can see how my skill compares to others playing the same game. It keeps my top scores and I can play to improve my own times if I want to. I find this app presents games that are challenging- I love it!! If anything, I wish there was an easier way to quickly use the place-holders and provide hints.
Imagine my shock...
by RN0201 on 2018/03/29 19:32
UPDATE: I would like to thank the developer for correcting the porn pop ups I was getting. I love the app! I haven’t had any problems with the updates and enjoy playing. I have enjoyed playing this app for several years. Then suddenly while playing a game yesterday a porn pop-up suddenly appeared. I was able to close it immediately but it was shocking. I have never had that happen with ANY app. I’m thankful that I was not in public or that someone else was using the app. Is this something that is going to happen occasionally?
I Like this Game
by Jquinan on 2018/01/26 05:22
I like this game. I’ve been playing it off and on for three years. I had a problem after the last update, some very noticeable latency started appearing after about 10 minutes. I updated IOS to 11.2.5 which required a restart, and since then, everything is now working fine. I must have had some odd conflict that the restart seems to have solved. I was contacted by the developer who offered assistance. I appreciate that. Thanks. I have now just completed revising my review to 5 Stars.
best sudoku app
by kgoods18 on 2019/07/04 06:33
This is the absolute best sudoku app I’ve found, and I’ve tried out a LOT of different apps. It’s simple and sleek, and I love the highlighting and notes features. The developers have been really quick to fix issues that people report, which is great. The reason I only gave 4 stars is because the ads are annoying and it’s ridiculous how expensive it is to pay to have them removed. Also, it would be cool to have a daily puzzle, a more customizable board (mainly color-wise), and more statistics to see how you compared time-wise to other players for specific boards.
Beat Sudoku App, some glitches
by Bellgrl on 2021/03/03 04:43
This is my favorite Sudoku app! I love the look of the pencil marks, the way it will highlight all of your chosen number to help see the ones you don’t have yet, and the different difficulty levels and timers/standings. I’ve probably played 5-6 different apps and this one is the best. But for the last few weeks it has been freezing on start-up a lot... and in the last year some of the ads between games have had sound that plays even when my phone is on silence! I hate getting busted playing a game, and by a commercial no less!
Crashes with Ads
by Escamotage on 2019/06/29 11:49
This has been my go-to Sudoku app for a long time now. The new update though hits you with more ads, especially when you pause a game. I get it. It’s a necessary evil and the developers need to make money, but the app has been very buggy ever since these changes were made. Each game crashes at least once or twice, while also having to deal with slow down in the tap response. For the longest time, I’ve never experienced this app to be buggy or have it crash until they started implementing more ad space. It’s a shame because it comes at the cost of the performance of the app.
IPhone X+ App Periodically Crashes
by slcdallas on 2019/07/01 02:18
Since the new update the app periodically crashes. You’ll be playing a game and the app will just blink off, leaving you in the home screen. When you go back into a game you are back to last time you entered the game. Game data since you last entered the game is lost. All other data and statistics are still there. Rest phone to assure it wasn’t phone system, also down loaded the game app again, same periodic problem. Hope this helps the developers. 😎
Mostly don't like newest version
by RVmcas on 2017/11/17 02:02
It was just updated on me a couple days ago, and maybe I just need to give it a chance. I don't like that the reset button on my iPad version is so close to undo. And the eraser could be a bit further from the toggle, which could be larger. And I still would like a feature similar to caps lock on a keyboard - double tap a digit so you can put it in several squares without having to go back and forth. I DO like that digits that are finished get faded.
Solid sudoku app!
by nonprofitguuuuuuuurl on 2020/08/08 15:33
This is a great app! It’s got 4 levels and it will keep your time stats. It’s very easy to see/read and you can highlight all of one color or put in small “pencil” marks easily. Also if you fill in a box with a number, it will automatically erase pencil marks of the same number in the same row/section. A few annoying thing: Sometimes the difficulty levels seem inconsistent. There are times when both Hard and Expert are impossibly hard and then there are times when Hard is so easy it feels like Medium. Also sometimes hitting “New Game” crashes the program and you have to open it again. But the loading page doesn’t take too long. The ads usually come at the end of a game which is fine. They can be kind of long and/or loud so I always make sure to keep my sound off when playing.
Best sudoku - needs reset/clear
by iSandman on 2017/08/24 12:23
I love this app and have playing it for many years. It occurs to me that the one (and maybe only) thing it needs is a button to completely clear the board and start over (without resetting time or resigning the game). Too often I screw up one little thing due to large fingers and several moves later I have to either hit undo a few hundred times or go box by box to clear in order to start over. Please consider this option.
Love the app and I've been using it for years
by oyasumi-punpun on 2017/11/19 07:22
I really appreciate all the recent effort put into the app. However, I would be grateful if the fading numbers could be turned off in the settings. While I do understand how people utilize this feature of the app by keeping track of which numbers are completed in the puzzle, I find that it takes away from the challenge. It would be a shame to take in away entirely since it seems that many enjoy this feature, but a method to toggle it on or off would be very nice. Thanks❤️
I miss TicBits
by RetMaster on 2017/11/19 04:55
Nothing specific, but it seemed to work better before the last major update. DEVELOPER QUERY: However, maybe a new set of eyes will find a way to give an alternative entry method, i.e. pick a number, then drop that number into every square you touch until you pick a new number, change entry method or enter “notes” mode. I’ve seen other companies versions of this game that have this. It makes data entry much faster when you don’t need to touch a number for EVERY entry.
Music stops playing and end of game as
by dragonlord42 on 2019/06/28 11:48
I have had this game for a long time and loved it. Recent update has made me consider replacing this game: 1) I usually listen to music while playing. A recent update of this app occasionally stops my music from playing while I’m playing this app. 2) I usually like seeing how fast I solved a puzzle. As soon as I finish the puzzle. A LONG ad pops up before I get a chance to see my time. I understand the game is free, but that happens every time.
Too many changes!
by Snofemme on 2017/11/19 17:04
I loved this app before when the boxes were bigger and the design was simpler. Now, it wont rotate on the screen, the boxes are small, and the columns and rows don't highlight when you touch a number. Please revert to some of the old design features! Just needs a tweak... It would be helpful to have a show/hide button for the pencil markings. One that all on screen pencil markings could be turned off at will, then turned back on again.
Best sudoku out there!
by I hope the maker reads this on 2020/12/20 05:37
This app is by far the best when it comes to sudoku apps. It has perfect format, it tracks your times, tries, fails, and records with the smoothest gaming action. If you don’t know sudoku you absolutely need to try this app maybe hit google to get the concept but once you understand it it’s awesome Iv been working my record fast round from about 3.5 minutes down to now just about two minutes!! But I’m determined to break that!
Changed for the worst
by kbhhhhhhhhhhh on 2019/06/30 02:44
This app used to be awesome. Recent changes however have convinced me its time to switch to a new app. They’ve fixed several since my last review, but some still remain. For example, the ads must play sounds (I don’t hear them since my ringer is off) that turn off whatever music I have playing. They also still have the “feature” where they disable the numeric button for any number it thinks you’ve completed...but this means you can’t remove any notes you still have in other cells for that figure. Just lots of little things still make this annoying.
Those ANNOYING adverts
by Buijs216 on 2020/01/08 03:42
I love this game and play it every day on my way to work. BUT the annoying, intrusive and stupid adverts for games that pop up all the time may make me stop using the APP. I will NEVER buy anything that is being advertised, on principle. It was annoying enough having a strip at the bottom of the game that sometimes flashes to catch your attention but at least those did not interfere with the game. Some of the pop-up adverts that have come up recently do not even have a way to cancel them. For these I have to shut down the game and restart to get rid of the advert. If this is your way of alienating customers of your game, well done, mission accomplished!!
App Support is Responsive!
by StarsCarol on 2018/09/14 18:01
This new version was not working on my Ipad and I contacted the developer who addressed the issue within two days and fixed the problem. This is my favorite Sudoku and, when I had trouble with it, I tried to work on a different app. NOT A GOOD all the way around! This version sets a good challenge in the hard and expert categories and works great. My new rating is 5 stars. Thank you.
Good game
by casualplauer1 on 2019/07/05 13:17
So far I found this app has the best interface among others. They added some advertisements to the game, which didn’t bother me much. The big problem I have with the last couple of updates is that it drains my battery, like dropping 60% within 10 minutes of playing. When that happened, it burns my phone. Literally ‘burn’ my phone. I guess because the phone became so hot that the game would get turned off in the middle. I’m looking forward for the fix.
Grandma
by grandmalon on 2019/10/16 02:01
I love the game and think it is very well done. However - I hate the fact that a video now pops up as soon as you finish - even before you get to check your time. Whoever came up with that idea should be fired. In addition, much of the time a very distracting set of icons is streaming across the bottom of the screen - most disturbing- I am sure it adds to the solving time for bot me and others. This used. To be one of my go-to game and I would play it four or five times a day and recommend it to anybody. Now I may play it once or. Thplace is
Previously satisfied, now major problems with this app
by aflores42 on 2019/04/28 14:06
Though I was initially happy with this app, there are now a number of pretty egregious problems with it. Its responsiveness is horrible—there’s a delay in response time after touching the screen, and sometimes it downs register your touch at all. There is also a weird metallic chirping sound that plays periodically, which, aside from being loud and really unpleasant, pauses whatever you’re listening to on your phone. Not sure what could be causing that, but it’s making the app almost unusable, which is a pity. This used to be my favorite sudoku app.
This used to be great!
by ChiefO'K on 2017/11/16 22:42
I've had this app for over four years now and it has been my most used app. Seriously, I have completed over 5,000 puzzles. I'm now going to mention how much time I have spent on it. I have loved this app for all of that time. Until yesterday. The most recent update makes the graphics look seriously dated and the boxes seem smaller. These hurt the app's usability. The new "feature" of having the numbers disappear from the bank as they are used up is pretty weak as well. Nobody needs a crutch to play sudoku. Really. But, worst of all, the statistics page cuts off the time of day. I keep track of my top times. Well, I used to keep track. Now I can't tell the time of day unless I immediately make a note. I can't even begin to say how disappointed I am. But just to give you an idea, this is the first time I have ever reviewed an app - the first time I have thought about reviewing one, really. Please go back to the previous version. ~ a Puzzled Puzzler
A long overdue thank you
by courtney c flo on 2017/12/28 14:19
After playing this app for a few years now, across iPhone generations 5-8, this app has consistently remained golden. It’s a no-frills app, so if a beautiful design (somehow) impacts your sudoku game, it may not be for you. If you are like me, however, and like to easily switch between levels of difficulty and the option to save games for later, than look no further!
Helped Me Through A Rough Patch
by Wodehouse fan on 2017/10/23 02:45
Was in an hospital for a very long time. Pastor's wife brought me a Sudoku book. It took me 30 minutes to 2 days to do an easy one. I was on a lot of heavy-duty drugs. Docs said 5 year convalescence. I've been doing these the whole 5 years. It helped work through the drugs, etc.. I enjoy doing these now. I can sometimes make through Hard in under 15 minutes.
Used to love this, but maybe no good for older iPhone
by AdverseMartyr on 2019/10/21 03:31
I’ve had this app for years, and in the last month it became problematic in that their little ad bar for paying to remove ads from the app started to become something that would bring up a pop up window after leaving the app asking if I wished to use my thumb to verify the purchase of removing ads. This is showing up on my home screen. Well yesterday when I pressed the home button it also verified the purchase because I was double pressing the home button to switch to a different app. And Apple won’t refund the purchase.
Pretty good
by Rick6954 on 2019/03/28 19:18
Lightweight but occasionally has an ad that causes a beeping sound and stops music from playing. Also I’ve had this app for several years and not once have I been able to solve Expert without reaching a point where guessing is mandatory. The whole point of sudoku is that you should never have to guess but unless there’s some kind of advanced technique I’m missing, expert always requires guessing at some point.
My self esteem went down a few notches!
by Miss Munchkin the 1st on 2018/02/18 12:58
I agree with Grumpy Pegasus, I used to play only with the hard level, and expert every now and then , but I don’t think I’ve ever been able to finish one of those on that app. I thought my brain was turning into mush until I read G P’s review... I don’t understand why I can do a medium in no time and face a wall with the hard level.... frustrating...
Best Sudoku app out there
by Honeychilly on 2019/10/06 20:23
I love every feature of this Sudoku app. I’ve tried others but their optics are distracting, or their space to play in is frustrating, or their features don’t work as smoothly as this one. My day isn’t complete until I’ve played several of these games. Makes the mind work better with logic skills....I think🤔💕
Highlight ALL
by Grampa_50 on 2020/09/09 13:39
I have been playing this game every day for a few years and enjoy doing it. There is however one upgrade I would like to see that no other game has. When you tap a number all of those numbers highlight. I would also like to see the entire block, row and column of ALL those numbers highlighted. So it shows a blank space on the grid where that number could be. Enjoy!
Ads are horrible
by Harvester234567 on 2018/01/12 04:58
I love this app from a puzzle perspective but the ads have officially ruined it for me. Occasionally I get a scam pop up when I accidentally click into the ad (didn’t know that was possible on a phone) saying I’ve been selected to win something or other and I have to close the app completely to get rid of the pop up. Today when I accidentally clicked on the ad, porn showed up. I never look at porn so I know it’s not pulling from my search history or anything. To say this app is for ages 4+ freaks me out. Deleted the app and will not be giving it any more chances.
Ads everywhere and wildly expensive to remove.
by Nathanahel on 2020/05/23 18:22
I have to agree with other recent reviewers that the ads have gotten very intrusive and have largely ruined an otherwise great sudoku implementation. I too have had this for a while and never minded the ads below or a rare pop up (except that it turns off the audio I’m trying to play), but it’s become very frequent and unlike previously, it’s now been many months without an adjustment. To add insult to injury, if you want to remove ads, it’s $25. That’s outrageous. I might pay $2.50, but instead I’m going to find a better sudoku app.
Malicious Ads Are Even Worse Now
by RIGymMom on 2017/10/05 00:07
I’ve had this app since my iPhone4, even though the data never transfers between phone purchases and even though there’s been issues with malicious ads for about a year that have yet to be addressed. Lately, the ads have gotten so much worse - chirping, crashing the app, etc. But, today was the last straw. Instead of popping up a virus warning or a you’ve won message, a pornographic picture was frozen on my screen until I could get the app to close. I have children. This is horrifically unacceptable. Deleting this app as we speak!
I like this app
by ~jori~ on 2018/01/16 06:54
When i say like, it doesn't mean that something's wrong, it means that sudoku isn't the thing that i would do if i was in a happy mood. Anyways, this sudoku app is very realistic and i like how it has the feature where you can put the number that you think would fit in that space in the corner.
Not Impressed
by mailani kuini on 2017/11/18 15:33
TicBits had a great game - sleek, visually elegant; only thing keeping it from being perfect was the lack of a reset button. Well, you did that finally, but at great sacrifice. The game now looks clunkier, cheesier, cheaper. That white screen at the start is most annoying, especially in a darker room. The game screen looks dumbed down and the fading numbers as they’re used confirms that. And red for the reset button? Really? (not to mention those green buttons for different games) I’ll be looking for another game that’s more pleasing to the eye.
Great app, but there’s a weird bug
by Dyb^ on 2021/02/24 02:42
The numbers are clear and when you tap on the number the row and column are highlighted, which I like. Also, when you fill a number the penciled clues go away, which I like, too. There are two bugs I found. 1. when you reset a puzzle, sometimes the numbers are faded so you can’t fill them in; you have to press the eraser button to “clear” it. 2. The app makes a really quiet “chkkt” sound on repeat. Not only should the app make no sounds, but it drains my AirPods. On a side note, the expert puzzles have stumped me to the point where they were impossible to solve without brute forcing a guess and I don’t like that at all. Please make sure all the puzzles are solvable. -DYB
Decent graphics/gameplay, but…
by Syki94 on 2018/03/03 08:00
The achievements and scoreboards don't work. Every time I open them, it tells me that they're not available. And when I start the app, I get a cascade of notifications telling me I got a new achievement. It's really annoying. 🙁 ETA: I just opened the achievements to get screencaps, and they work for the first time in months! I have no idea how or why, but I'm not complaining. 😂

Fun and as challenging as you want it to be!
Broken

Something happened to this game. It started to freeze upon launching so killing it and restarting worked as a workaround. But now it does not even start upon restarting it.
Beat Sudoku App, some glitches
by Bellgrl on 2021/03/03 04:43
This is my favorite Sudoku app! I love the look of the pencil marks, the way it will highlight all of your chosen number to help see the ones you don’t have yet, and the different difficulty levels and timers/standings. I’ve probably played 5-6 different apps and this one is the best. But for the last few weeks it has been freezing on start-up a lot... and in the last year some of the ads between games have had sound that plays even when my phone is on silence! I hate getting busted playing a game, and by a commercial no less!

It is fun, challenging and addictive. I love it. Be is that sound necessary? I would like to turn it off.
Broke
by Grandpa Sudoku on 2021/02/28 06:43
The latest update literally made the app unplayable. I can no longer enter numbers into the grid.
Great app, but there’s a weird bug
by Dyb^ on 2021/02/24 02:42
The numbers are clear and when you tap on the number the row and column are highlighted, which I like. Also, when you fill a number the penciled clues go away, which I like, too. There are two bugs I found. 1. when you reset a puzzle, sometimes the numbers are faded so you can’t fill them in; you have to press the eraser button to “clear” it. 2. The app makes a really quiet “chkkt” sound on repeat. Not only should the app make no sounds, but it drains my AirPods. On a side note, the expert puzzles have stumped me to the point where they were impossible to solve without brute forcing a guess and I don’t like that at all. Please make sure all the puzzles are solvable. -DYB

I used to play this daily and LOVED it but now it freezes all the time. Wish they’d fix it.

Play too much

Crashing every time after a finished game
by Bobzo234 on 2021/02/12 14:40
The screen is stuck and won’t upload the next game. Time to find another sudoku app
Missing autocomplete
by Dino Bistrik on 2021/02/07 02:07
Only one thing is missing and that is autocomplete. Once there is only 4 or 5 numbers are missing - you should be able to hit a button to autocomplete.
Bad update or something
by Tiggrtoo001 on 2021/02/02 06:04
What happed to the game. For the past few days when I open the game it freezes up. When is the next update to fix it.
Good!!

Good!
Satisfied with app
by Whizzlemagoo on 2021/01/29 18:26
I have been playing this on and off for a few years ! Easy to use. This app doesn’t have a lot of annoying ads like so many other games do!
Simple and great
by Alli67 on 2021/01/29 04:12
I’ve spent hundreds of hours on this app. I don’t like complicated apps and this gives me what I want without the things I don’t want. Easy to use, with the right features. Would recommend.
Saved My Eyesight
by Catfish399 on 2021/01/29 01:59
Love Sudoku and always thought I used this app way too much. I was diagnosed with age related macular degeneration a few years ago. I had the dry type which can cause blindness but very slowly. My doctor told me to download an Amsler eye chart (a grid chart like a big Sudoku) and use it to test my eyes. If lines become distorted come in immediately. That is a signal for wet macular degeneration which can cause blindness fairly quickly if not treated. Lazy me didn’t print a chart. Two years later I’m on the Sudoku app and noticed lines had become wavy. Called doctor and I’m now getting treatment for wet macular degeneration

Many hours of enjoyable brain teasing!
Clean and uncluttered
by IrmoPhil on 2021/01/20 02:12
I have tried a couple of Sudoku apps and this is very good. There are ads flashing away at the bottom.
Unplayable
by DJ Masta on 2021/01/15 03:50
This app used to work pretty good. But now it is unresponsive when I open it up. Shows the main menu buttons, but they are all dead.
Since most recent update...

Game won’t open without several closings and retries. IPhone 11 iOS 14.2

Love that you added RESET ALL to the iPad version. Thank you! The only Sudoku app I’ll play. Great job!
Mind tasking

Makes me think, so help keep me somewhat sharp!
Too many adds!
by Ahab18364949261 on 2021/01/08 00:23
Too many adds and the purchase price is too high.
No longer opens
by 260345ca on 2021/01/06 18:13
Last update has rendered this, my favorite sudoku game on my iPhone, useless. It won’t open.
Used to be better
by Royearl on 2021/01/04 22:01
I like the game - when it works, but it frequently locks up on my iPad mini during an ad, giving no way to get back to the game. Several times I have deleted it, then reloaded. I’m about to give up on it. There are lots of other sudoku apps out there.
Best sudoku out there.
by maddoghasfleas on 2020/12/21 23:03
I’ve tried a bunch of sudoku apps out there and this is the best.
Best sudoku out there!
by I hope the maker reads this on 2020/12/20 05:37
This app is by far the best when it comes to sudoku apps. It has perfect format, it tracks your times, tries, fails, and records with the smoothest gaming action. If you don’t know sudoku you absolutely need to try this app maybe hit google to get the concept but once you understand it it’s awesome Iv been working my record fast round from about 3.5 minutes down to now just about two minutes!! But I’m determined to break that!
Greedy! $24 to stop ads
by iCe 911 on 2020/12/18 17:43
Great fun little game but no they just want money! Don’t download it! $24 to disable the ads and you can’t silence the ads even if you have sounds off fit the game.
Hardest Sudoku I ever played
by bigmike53 on 2020/12/15 00:37
Easy is indeed easy But when you choose hard or expert, good luck. It is challenging. Great game.
Great game
by Mawmawpower on 2020/12/13 13:53
I like the way you can mark where you think the number goes. The larger numbers are for the ones you know are right. Try it, you will like it!
Levels
by Felix the calico cat on 2020/12/10 22:39
Medium level is too easy and hard level is too difficult! Make the medium more difficult or the hard level easier. Thx
Easy to use!
by Im in love with superman on 2020/12/10 07:00
Sensitive buttons, simple to use. Wish it had a feature to let you know when an entered number is wrong
Game interruptus
by maksmomnstuff on 2020/12/09 16:45
This game is great except for the ads. They very aggressively interrupt your game, so as you are entering numbers some panoramic picture of a house interrupts the game and you have to close it entirely. This repeatedly happens, so even if you close the game and resume it, within seconds that same creepy ad interrupts. Repeatedly.
Ads ruined this game
by Cal606060 on 2020/12/09 16:08
I loved this app. I play at least a couple games a day. But, recently the ads have completely ruined it. They pop up in the middle of play and you have to click them to close it. Will delete if this continues much longer. There are a ton of other sudoku options available.
George
by NB George on 2020/12/08 22:54
Constant pop up is too annoying to continue using the app. Purchasing would shut of ads but at over $20 that’s not happening.
Too much hassle
by Point Richmond on 2020/12/08 21:44
I have had this game on my phone for a couple of years. They, of course would like you to pay them to turn off the ads. It used to be that you could just ignore the ads. Then they changed it so that every time you win a game it would launch an ad that would take over your screen. Not a huge problem except that you had to quit and relaunch the game every time. Now they have changed it so that an ad will take over your screen in the middle of the game. I just tried to play a game and an ad took over the screen six times before I gave up and quit. This ones leaving my phone hone for good. There is another app called Daily Puzzle which has no ads and doesn’t even give you the choice to send them money. Whatever their business plan is, I like it a lot better!
Ads ruin this again
by This game has cancer on 2020/12/07 15:24
This has been my go to for so long, but the ads have completely ruined it for me. Ads that take up the bottom of the screen keep popping up in the middle of games (taking up the whole screen) completely ruining any attempt to beat my times. I get the need to add them in and make a profit, but this is ridiculous, and I’m not willing to pay $25 to get rid of them. I’m sad that I’ll need to start over again on a new app, and leave behind my records, but this is awful.
Annoying adds
by Ccowens on 2020/12/06 20:03
This game was fun and challenging, that I until the annoying adds started interrupting the play of the game. Can no longer Finnish a game because of the interruptions. Don't bother getting this AP.
Simple awesome fun!
by US LFC Fan on 2020/12/04 06:13
Simple, easy, awesome, fun.
Something missing
by Snickie323 on 2020/11/29 21:14
I like to check off numbers as I complete placement of all 9. There’s no option for doing that, like a doodle margin. I feel I’m wasting time double checking what I can skip as I get to the end of the game.
Constant Pop-Ups over game
by stop pop-ups on 2020/11/27 22:42
Pop-ups every 10secs over game, can’t select number without clicking on the pop-up. Deleting!
Ads Obnoxious
by fish_charlie on 2020/11/27 15:59
Sometimes the ads shown in game will take over the full screen randomly like it’s playing a video. You need to swipe down to dismiss it. Which really interrupts the flow. Normally I’d just pay the remove the ads and support the developer. But they charge $24.99 to remove the ads. Which is RIDICULOUS. I’ve never seen an app charge that much before. Make it a reasonable price (few dollars) like every other app. Your app isn’t good enough to deserve $24.99 to remove ads.
Excellent game
by 2ACR on 2020/11/21 00:32
This is my go-to game especially when waiting at offices, on -lanes, etc. Really challenges logic skills and helps develop the ability apply rules.
Dont know why....
by Bridge fanatic on 2020/11/14 16:35
I loved this app. But it has become a real problem. On more than one occasion, it just goes black and I cannot access it. Need to delete and reload. Have already done so several times. Very annoying

Needs a cheat
by Hatchet987 on 2020/11/11 16:30
The game needs an assist for hard levels
Favorite sudoku app
by carcatcart on 2020/11/10 17:14
It’s simple and the closest to doing it on paper
Difficulty Level
by NRylou on 2020/11/09 10:29
Medium is too easy (starting with 32 numbers) and Hard is too difficult (starting with 24 numbers). There should be a level in between.
Just right for my morning
by hvt167 on 2020/11/07 12:01
I can not think of a way to improve this app. You can chose your difficulty and the results exactly mirror you choice. You can highlight a chosen # to quickly find the missing ones. You can select assumed choices if you wish. Just right!
keeps getting worse
by Crashd726 on 2020/11/05 06:58
No, it wants me to provide personal information all the time. Not going to do it.
Ads are intrusive
by 16510 on 2020/11/05 01:15
It is a pain in you know where to wait over 30 seconds to examine my time on a puzzle.
Game good. Some ads freeze the screen
by Djharper5 on 2020/11/02 22:36
I don’t mind ads when using a free app, but some of the ads on this site freeze the screen and I have to restart my phone - occasionally I have to delete the app.

Sudoku addiction

Love this! Work puzzles every morning to wake up my brain!
Very unsatisfactory customer service
by Samyusun on 2020/10/31 21:57
I have been using this app for a few years. I purchased the in-app ad free. Whenever I update my iPhone, the ad will pop up. Last time it was solved very soon. This year I got the new iPhone and same the ad popped up, have been writing to customer service several times, so far no more reply at all. I actually wanted to give zero star. I hope users who see this review think about it before downloading.

Annoying Ads
by NVélez on 2020/10/28 20:54
The amount of ads don’t f allow you to see the time after completing the Sudoku. Some of the ads can’t be close. It use to be a nice App.
Great!
by Moradeke on 2020/10/28 03:03
It’s an excellent game to play. Once I start, I find it difficult to stop. It tasks the brain. Thanks.

Dies continuously with iOS 14!
by Neslake on 2020/10/24 16:06
I’m not logged in to Game Center (whatever that is, but then I never have been. IOS 14.0.1 is better. The app dies randomly but no more of that Game Center garbage. Hopefully the latest update will fix that. I now have IOS 14.1 and the latest update. I haven’t seen any problems and Sudoku is back to its best!

This is my favorite game on my iPad, by far. I noticed yesterday and today, there’s a pause/delay when inputting numbers. My last game froze on me. Never happened before. Please fix the bugs.
App stopped working
by sudoku fan in nc on 2020/10/20 00:14

I installed the update a few days ago, and the crash issue no longer happens. Thanks for fixing this!! Since the latest update, I have experienced numerous crashes during each game. After the crash, many of my entries have been wiped out and I need to re-enter them. Please fix this!!
Leisure Time FUN

Unsolvable sudoku
by Toby Goodhue on 2020/10/13 03:26
I have used this app for a while now, and it's worked well up to this point. But I just played a sudoku and got down to 2 spaces, my only 2 numbers left were 3 and 7, and neither could go in the spaces.
Suddenly ads everywhere
by Sallyama on 2020/10/02 12:08
Fine game but now it’s filled with OBNOXIOUS ads. Even if you have sound effects turned off, it’s OBNOXIOUS, nerve racking noise invades a peaceful game. Congratulations, you’ve ruined your otherwise good game. On the positive side, it’s a good incentive to move on and enjoy more of life.
So fun, and as challenging as you want
by hi-5-me on 2020/09/29 01:29
Great game
Hard crashes with iOS 14, too many ads
by uRvGoTTi on 2020/09/22 22:27
I’ve been playing this app for years but with the new iOS it just hard crashes every few seconds and doesn’t save the game. Also the amount and length of ads is now ridiculous. I have to find a new sudoku app.
The best Sudoku app ever!
by Ray32198 on 2020/09/22 11:27
By far this app is the best Sudoku game. I play the expert level every day and I find it very good and easy to understand.

by reggie1364 on 2020/09/19 21:39

This app reads your clipboard
by JadenReyna on 2020/09/16 19:36
I don’t understand why this apps reads your clipboard. If you copy something from safari or messages and then open this app IOS will tell you it has pasted something from your clipboard. This is shady activity.
Highlight ALL
by Grampa_50 on 2020/09/09 13:39
I have been playing this game every day for a few years and enjoy doing it. There is however one upgrade I would like to see that no other game has. When you tap a number all of those numbers highlight. I would also like to see the entire block, row and column of ALL those numbers highlighted. So it shows a blank space on the grid where that number could be. Enjoy!
Too many ads
by Egritz63 on 2020/09/08 17:06
When I first downloaded this game, the ads were infrequent, maybe one every 10games. Now they are almost non stop. I play a couple of games and up they pop. What is worse is they are now 30 seconds long. I understand the need for ads - nothing in life is free - but they have gone too far. I’m finding another app
Funny game

Crummy Ads
by Ralph Parker Jr on 2020/08/27 21:20
This would be 5 stars, but there are crummy commercials that pop up after each game is completed.
Nature valley ad interferes with concentration
by wls227 on 2020/08/22 16:42
I Will never buy a nature valley product because it interrupts my concentration and relaxing sudoku experience. Defeats the whole purpose and I HATE that product for annoying me! After 698 hours of playing I am forced to find another app! I don’t mind advertising, but every 5 minutes it is ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!
Sudoku

Great game. Have been playing it for years.
Solid sudoku app!
by nonprofitguuuuuuuurl on 2020/08/08 15:33
This is a great app! It’s got 4 levels and it will keep your time stats. It’s very easy to see/read and you can highlight all of one color or put in small “pencil” marks easily. Also if you fill in a box with a number, it will automatically erase pencil marks of the same number in the same row/section. A few annoying thing: Sometimes the difficulty levels seem inconsistent. There are times when both Hard and Expert are impossibly hard and then there are times when Hard is so easy it feels like Medium. Also sometimes hitting “New Game” crashes the program and you have to open it again. But the loading page doesn’t take too long. The ads usually come at the end of a game which is fine. They can be kind of long and/or loud so I always make sure to keep my sound off when playing.
Love the app
by HordyGordy on 2020/08/05 22:11
It’s great and easy for me to see.
Used all my battery
by Suzsing on 2020/08/01 15:21
I love to play this game. The app was great for that, but something changed and it started draining my battery even when I wasn’t playing and the app was closed. I had to delete the app cuz my battery was dying. Very disappointed because I love the way you played.

ADS. ADS. ADS.
by vinny zip on 2020/07/17 09:02
I used to really enjoy this game when it first came out. Since then the logic and game construction has changed for the worse. Now they’ve added loud and obnoxious ads in addition to the constant and distracting banner ads. A nice pastime has been ruined by greed and crass ignorance.
My favorite

Remove The Adverts

This used to be a decent application. Now, I can’t see the result (time, etc.) after finishing a game because an advertisement just pops up. It’s ridiculous!
Sudoku on iPhone
by acts25 on 2020/06/26 01:54
I just downloaded sudoku to my iPhone. I have played it on my iPad for years. Generally it is pretty good on iPhone, but it is hard to select 9 in the portrait view. I haven’t played the game yet in landscape. I really like this implementation better than any others on the market.

This game has obviously been changed...
by ZachryTHiggins on 2018/03/12 04:06
It’s been changed for the worse. I already commented about the new format giving too many clues by graying out numbers etc. There are no options to turn these off. I got a new phone and I had to update to latest version. I immediately noticed that I’ve either suddenly gotten really good at this game or the makers have dumbed it down. I play expert all of the time and I used to average about 20-25 minutes per game. (I have no clue whether that is good or bad. I play it for the challenge.) But with the update my games are done in under 15 minutes every time. I’m not that good! It is noticeably easier and not as fun. I know there is no other Soduko app out there as good as this one was. I searched. But making it easy does not win me over. You’ve lost me. I’ll check back next month to see if my paid for app has been updated back to its old self. ...Cliff
DO NOT APPLY SEPTEMBER 9 UPDATE
by Lara Rebooted on 2018/09/12 10:55
If you haven't updated your app yet and are still using a version from before September 9, 2018, DO NOT UPDATE. The game no longer works with that update. It will not even register that you are touching the screen. In spite of numerous reports and complaints, the developer has yet to do anything useful about it. Previous review: Simpler is better! After using a few programs with silly bells and whistles, this is definitely my favorite. It best replicates the comfortable feeling of doing the puzzle for yourself, rather than to necessarily beat the clock or hit a certain score. You have a clock if you want to beat it, but its presence is unobtrusive and pressure-free. You won't get hit by onerous penalties if you touch the wrong number or button (unlike a competing version that I have since uninstalled) and it's pretty hard to hit a wrong button anyway, because everything is arranged so well on the screen. If you DO feel competitive, you can check your position on the leaderboard and keep an eye on the clock, but none of the competitive aspects will ever get in the way of those times when you just want to relax with a favorite number puzzle. Get this Sudoku app and you'll forget all about the others.
The best. Except one kiiiind of big issue...
by Lcizzle7775489 on 2020/05/27 04:54
I love this sudoku app. It has THE best setup / functionality compared to all other sudoku apps I’ve tried. I’ve played it basically every day during quarantine. However, there is one really big issue which unfortunately has caused me to have to find a new sudoku app: As I start to play (I mostly play on Hard if that’s relevant), my phone starts to get really HOT and the battery starts plummeting. I have an iPhone 8 Plus, and I’m fairly certain it’s not a phone issue because I have many other apps that I’m on throughout the day. My phone is totally normal for everything else but this app. If I open the app and start playing at 100% battery, it will be at 5% in about 20 minutes. My phone literally gets burning hot to the touch to the point where my fingertips are legit slightly burned (visibly a little red, but mostly not visible just can feel they are clearly burned). I know I sound like a crazy person and my friends were like what the actual F, but...it’s real! So. Yeah. 4 stars. TLDR - It burns.
Impossible to do...
by GrumpyPegasus on 2017/12/29 19:27
So, I had thought that I couldn’t finish the puzzles on the ‘hard’ level because I had it on that level of difficulty... but I always encountered the same problem... Every single time I tried a puzzle on ‘Hard’ difficulty, I would get the puzzle close to being done and then would not be able to make a single next move.. and this happened A LOT. I would come back to it the next day and double checked multiple times and still could not go anywhere with what there was unless I just guessed a number.... so I would have to end the game and start a new one. i have been playing sudoku for a very long time and have never had this problem before. And then today, I played on ‘Medium’ and the numbers that are already set have the 9s placed to where it’s impossible to put a 9 in a box section that needs a 9. I have a picture to prove it. It just makes no sense and the numbers given to start out with are poorly set up to where it’s impossible to solve. So now I’m thinking I wasn’t crazy when I couldn’t finish the puzzles on ‘Hard’ difficulty when that is usually the level I play on. Will be deleting...
Saved My Eyesight
by Catfish399 on 2021/01/29 01:59
Love Sudoku and always thought I used this app way too much. I was diagnosed with age related macular degeneration a few years ago. I had the dry type which can cause blindness but very slowly. My doctor told me to download an Amsler eye chart (a grid chart like a big Sudoku) and use it to test my eyes. If lines become distorted come in immediately. That is a signal for wet macular degeneration which can cause blindness fairly quickly if not treated. Lazy me didn’t print a chart. Two years later I’m on the Sudoku app and noticed lines had become wavy. Called doctor and I’m now getting treatment for wet macular degeneration
Unfortunate update
by San Jose438 on 2018/05/22 23:24
I like this app but wish I hadn't updated. Now the statistics (prev. scores) are hard to read and in a ridiculous scroll box. When you complete a game that makes a high score, you are no longer notified. It's galling that the developer calls these regressions 'improvements'. When does the next version come out? What I wish they would have fixed: my app consumes 400MB and climbing, most for app data. What could it be storing?? The board and scores consume a minuscule amount of space. Of course I could delete and reinstall, but I would lose my game records. Other vast improvements would be not disappearing the board the second it's complete; and improving the ad experience (esp. the obnoxious audio ones (usually I'm listening to my own music while playing)).
WHY DID YOU DO THIS???
by RedNanl on 2019/09/30 20:22
I have had this app and used it religiously for probably over a decade. I could obsessively play games for hours without interruption. I really loved this app. After a 6/13 update, I can no longer go from game to game seamlessly. Now, I have to sit and watch a 30 second ad and then I have to close the ad once the ‘x’ appears at the end of it. I am done with this app. As soon as I find a new app, this one will be deleted. As far as I am concerned, this has completely ruined my experience of playing sudoku in your app. Very disappointing. UPDATE: I stuck it out a few months hoping things would get better but it is now worse. We went from an add every few games to one after every single game and even sometimes when you leave a games in progress and then come back, there’s another ad. I get you need revenue but this is over the top. Today, I sadly deleted your app.
Used to be a great app
by idontwantanicknamethankyou on 2017/11/09 12:24
Update: I may be thinking of a different app made by ticbits but that doesn’t change anything. The latest update still seriously broke things. The app used to be made by ticbits (or similar name) and was great then. It must have been sold to someone that doesn’t know what they are doing because the thing has become the most annoying sudoku I have ever played. It crashes and proceeds to forget several of your previous moves. Tonight it crashed as I was putting in the last number in the last square and it forgot the entire game when I got back in. It has been long enough since the update that the developer should have done SOMETHING by now. Back out the current version and put the old one back in the store. Anything would be better than this. I know they are aware of the problem because they have responded to other reviews. Zero stars if I could!!!
It used to be good, but the ads have gotten over the top annoying.
by michellecairo on 2019/10/20 12:28
I never leave reviews but this app has gotten annoying. I’ve been playing it for years, and I was totally ok when there were ads at the bottom of the screen. They weren’t in the way while playing, but now when you finish a game a full screen ad comes up and if I’m listening to music it stops my music of course, which is annoying because it takes you out of the flow that it’s so nice while playing sudoku. If it keeps up I don’t know if I’ll keep playing this game because yeah ads are important and you may want to pay to get the ad-less version but sometimes you just want to play sudoku without paying and without stupid ads popping up while you’re playing.
Problems
by Patricia Painter on 2019/07/02 02:45
All of a sudden this game has been rendered useless because it continually freezes up while playing. Time to download a different sudoku app. 🙁 And since the last update, when all of the annoying ads came along, the game constantly crashes - you cannot play two games in a row without it crashing. The “resume game” option after a crash does not give you the board with the progress you had made before the crash - in fact, sometimes it gives you an entirely different puzzle. This used to be a very enjoyable app. Not any more. This gets worse by the day. Now, you can’t complete one game because the app either freezes or crashes. Why are you not fixing this problem???
Almost perfect....
by Royalfalls on 2018/07/28 22:27
Love that you can turn off any hints or highlighting that might offer assistance; EXCEPT when you've placed all nine of a number, that number grays out. Boo! No hints, no help. I want the ability to put too many fours out there if I'm not paying attention. Please fix that. I'm OCD, and those kinds of things bother me. That's my only complaint. Everything else is great. I especially love the stats. It keeps track of how many games you've played, and how many you've completed, and your top 10 best times for each skill level. This is the main reason I searched for a new app, because my old one didn't keep statistics the way I liked. But the graying out of a used up number may be a deal breaker for me.
Ruined a good thing with all the ads
by LizzieBitGL on 2019/11/12 10:27
Been using your app for years. Was a great thing even with the few ads that appeared here and there. Since the latest (recent) upgrade, the ONLY thing I noticed was an entourage of advertisements from start to end of game - no game improvements whatsoever despite the description that accompanied it. Please read, hear and respond to he hundreds of your customers who have said the same. A few ads here and there is to be expected but you’ve smothered the game with them and it’s hard to enter or leave it now. What good is your app and how will your investors gain anything when all your customers delete it? Please lighten up on the ads so we can start using your app again. It was our favorite - not any more. Thank you.
What happened??
by funnieguy89 on 2017/11/21 08:30
I loved this app!! It was fantastic! I’ve downloaded over a dozen other Sudoku apps in the past to find the one with just the right interface that wasn’t too intrusive, but still provided a few of the neat features like notes that auto-updated and highlighting of certain numbers. Then they go and update it with ads all over the place for their other games. Even for the paid version. This completely distracts from the game play and now I’m probably going to have to spend the next hour or two trying to find a new sudoku app... 😔
Sudoku for all levels
by SoCalBeachGirl99 on 2018/09/17 23:39
I’ve enjoyed this Sudoku for years. Depending on how much time or energy I have, I can play a level that suits me while still presenting a challenge. I used a different Sudoku app while learning to play because it had hints and guided help. I like this app because I can see how my skill compares to others playing the same game. It keeps my top scores and I can play to improve my own times if I want to. I find this app presents games that are challenging- I love it!! If anything, I wish there was an easier way to quickly use the place-holders and provide hints.
Imagine my shock...
by RN0201 on 2018/03/29 19:32
UPDATE: I would like to thank the developer for correcting the porn pop ups I was getting. I love the app! I haven’t had any problems with the updates and enjoy playing. I have enjoyed playing this app for several years. Then suddenly while playing a game yesterday a porn pop-up suddenly appeared. I was able to close it immediately but it was shocking. I have never had that happen with ANY app. I’m thankful that I was not in public or that someone else was using the app. Is this something that is going to happen occasionally?
I Like this Game
by Jquinan on 2018/01/26 05:22
I like this game. I’ve been playing it off and on for three years. I had a problem after the last update, some very noticeable latency started appearing after about 10 minutes. I updated IOS to 11.2.5 which required a restart, and since then, everything is now working fine. I must have had some odd conflict that the restart seems to have solved. I was contacted by the developer who offered assistance. I appreciate that. Thanks. I have now just completed revising my review to 5 Stars.
best sudoku app
by kgoods18 on 2019/07/04 06:33
This is the absolute best sudoku app I’ve found, and I’ve tried out a LOT of different apps. It’s simple and sleek, and I love the highlighting and notes features. The developers have been really quick to fix issues that people report, which is great. The reason I only gave 4 stars is because the ads are annoying and it’s ridiculous how expensive it is to pay to have them removed. Also, it would be cool to have a daily puzzle, a more customizable board (mainly color-wise), and more statistics to see how you compared time-wise to other players for specific boards.
Beat Sudoku App, some glitches
by Bellgrl on 2021/03/03 04:43
This is my favorite Sudoku app! I love the look of the pencil marks, the way it will highlight all of your chosen number to help see the ones you don’t have yet, and the different difficulty levels and timers/standings. I’ve probably played 5-6 different apps and this one is the best. But for the last few weeks it has been freezing on start-up a lot... and in the last year some of the ads between games have had sound that plays even when my phone is on silence! I hate getting busted playing a game, and by a commercial no less!
Crashes with Ads
by Escamotage on 2019/06/29 11:49
This has been my go-to Sudoku app for a long time now. The new update though hits you with more ads, especially when you pause a game. I get it. It’s a necessary evil and the developers need to make money, but the app has been very buggy ever since these changes were made. Each game crashes at least once or twice, while also having to deal with slow down in the tap response. For the longest time, I’ve never experienced this app to be buggy or have it crash until they started implementing more ad space. It’s a shame because it comes at the cost of the performance of the app.
IPhone X+ App Periodically Crashes
by slcdallas on 2019/07/01 02:18
Since the new update the app periodically crashes. You’ll be playing a game and the app will just blink off, leaving you in the home screen. When you go back into a game you are back to last time you entered the game. Game data since you last entered the game is lost. All other data and statistics are still there. Rest phone to assure it wasn’t phone system, also down loaded the game app again, same periodic problem. Hope this helps the developers. 😎
Mostly don't like newest version
by RVmcas on 2017/11/17 02:02
It was just updated on me a couple days ago, and maybe I just need to give it a chance. I don't like that the reset button on my iPad version is so close to undo. And the eraser could be a bit further from the toggle, which could be larger. And I still would like a feature similar to caps lock on a keyboard - double tap a digit so you can put it in several squares without having to go back and forth. I DO like that digits that are finished get faded.
Solid sudoku app!
by nonprofitguuuuuuuurl on 2020/08/08 15:33
This is a great app! It’s got 4 levels and it will keep your time stats. It’s very easy to see/read and you can highlight all of one color or put in small “pencil” marks easily. Also if you fill in a box with a number, it will automatically erase pencil marks of the same number in the same row/section. A few annoying thing: Sometimes the difficulty levels seem inconsistent. There are times when both Hard and Expert are impossibly hard and then there are times when Hard is so easy it feels like Medium. Also sometimes hitting “New Game” crashes the program and you have to open it again. But the loading page doesn’t take too long. The ads usually come at the end of a game which is fine. They can be kind of long and/or loud so I always make sure to keep my sound off when playing.
Best sudoku - needs reset/clear
by iSandman on 2017/08/24 12:23
I love this app and have playing it for many years. It occurs to me that the one (and maybe only) thing it needs is a button to completely clear the board and start over (without resetting time or resigning the game). Too often I screw up one little thing due to large fingers and several moves later I have to either hit undo a few hundred times or go box by box to clear in order to start over. Please consider this option.
Love the app and I've been using it for years
by oyasumi-punpun on 2017/11/19 07:22
I really appreciate all the recent effort put into the app. However, I would be grateful if the fading numbers could be turned off in the settings. While I do understand how people utilize this feature of the app by keeping track of which numbers are completed in the puzzle, I find that it takes away from the challenge. It would be a shame to take in away entirely since it seems that many enjoy this feature, but a method to toggle it on or off would be very nice. Thanks❤️
I miss TicBits
by RetMaster on 2017/11/19 04:55
Nothing specific, but it seemed to work better before the last major update. DEVELOPER QUERY: However, maybe a new set of eyes will find a way to give an alternative entry method, i.e. pick a number, then drop that number into every square you touch until you pick a new number, change entry method or enter “notes” mode. I’ve seen other companies versions of this game that have this. It makes data entry much faster when you don’t need to touch a number for EVERY entry.
Music stops playing and end of game as
by dragonlord42 on 2019/06/28 11:48
I have had this game for a long time and loved it. Recent update has made me consider replacing this game: 1) I usually listen to music while playing. A recent update of this app occasionally stops my music from playing while I’m playing this app. 2) I usually like seeing how fast I solved a puzzle. As soon as I finish the puzzle. A LONG ad pops up before I get a chance to see my time. I understand the game is free, but that happens every time.
Too many changes!
by Snofemme on 2017/11/19 17:04
I loved this app before when the boxes were bigger and the design was simpler. Now, it wont rotate on the screen, the boxes are small, and the columns and rows don't highlight when you touch a number. Please revert to some of the old design features! Just needs a tweak... It would be helpful to have a show/hide button for the pencil markings. One that all on screen pencil markings could be turned off at will, then turned back on again.
Best sudoku out there!
by I hope the maker reads this on 2020/12/20 05:37
This app is by far the best when it comes to sudoku apps. It has perfect format, it tracks your times, tries, fails, and records with the smoothest gaming action. If you don’t know sudoku you absolutely need to try this app maybe hit google to get the concept but once you understand it it’s awesome Iv been working my record fast round from about 3.5 minutes down to now just about two minutes!! But I’m determined to break that!
Changed for the worst
by kbhhhhhhhhhhh on 2019/06/30 02:44
This app used to be awesome. Recent changes however have convinced me its time to switch to a new app. They’ve fixed several since my last review, but some still remain. For example, the ads must play sounds (I don’t hear them since my ringer is off) that turn off whatever music I have playing. They also still have the “feature” where they disable the numeric button for any number it thinks you’ve completed...but this means you can’t remove any notes you still have in other cells for that figure. Just lots of little things still make this annoying.
Those ANNOYING adverts
by Buijs216 on 2020/01/08 03:42
I love this game and play it every day on my way to work. BUT the annoying, intrusive and stupid adverts for games that pop up all the time may make me stop using the APP. I will NEVER buy anything that is being advertised, on principle. It was annoying enough having a strip at the bottom of the game that sometimes flashes to catch your attention but at least those did not interfere with the game. Some of the pop-up adverts that have come up recently do not even have a way to cancel them. For these I have to shut down the game and restart to get rid of the advert. If this is your way of alienating customers of your game, well done, mission accomplished!!
App Support is Responsive!
by StarsCarol on 2018/09/14 18:01
This new version was not working on my Ipad and I contacted the developer who addressed the issue within two days and fixed the problem. This is my favorite Sudoku and, when I had trouble with it, I tried to work on a different app. NOT A GOOD all the way around! This version sets a good challenge in the hard and expert categories and works great. My new rating is 5 stars. Thank you.
Good game
by casualplauer1 on 2019/07/05 13:17
So far I found this app has the best interface among others. They added some advertisements to the game, which didn’t bother me much. The big problem I have with the last couple of updates is that it drains my battery, like dropping 60% within 10 minutes of playing. When that happened, it burns my phone. Literally ‘burn’ my phone. I guess because the phone became so hot that the game would get turned off in the middle. I’m looking forward for the fix.
Grandma
by grandmalon on 2019/10/16 02:01
I love the game and think it is very well done. However - I hate the fact that a video now pops up as soon as you finish - even before you get to check your time. Whoever came up with that idea should be fired. In addition, much of the time a very distracting set of icons is streaming across the bottom of the screen - most disturbing- I am sure it adds to the solving time for bot me and others. This used. To be one of my go-to game and I would play it four or five times a day and recommend it to anybody. Now I may play it once or. Thplace is
Previously satisfied, now major problems with this app
by aflores42 on 2019/04/28 14:06
Though I was initially happy with this app, there are now a number of pretty egregious problems with it. Its responsiveness is horrible—there’s a delay in response time after touching the screen, and sometimes it downs register your touch at all. There is also a weird metallic chirping sound that plays periodically, which, aside from being loud and really unpleasant, pauses whatever you’re listening to on your phone. Not sure what could be causing that, but it’s making the app almost unusable, which is a pity. This used to be my favorite sudoku app.
This used to be great!
by ChiefO'K on 2017/11/16 22:42
I've had this app for over four years now and it has been my most used app. Seriously, I have completed over 5,000 puzzles. I'm now going to mention how much time I have spent on it. I have loved this app for all of that time. Until yesterday. The most recent update makes the graphics look seriously dated and the boxes seem smaller. These hurt the app's usability. The new "feature" of having the numbers disappear from the bank as they are used up is pretty weak as well. Nobody needs a crutch to play sudoku. Really. But, worst of all, the statistics page cuts off the time of day. I keep track of my top times. Well, I used to keep track. Now I can't tell the time of day unless I immediately make a note. I can't even begin to say how disappointed I am. But just to give you an idea, this is the first time I have ever reviewed an app - the first time I have thought about reviewing one, really. Please go back to the previous version. ~ a Puzzled Puzzler
A long overdue thank you
by courtney c flo on 2017/12/28 14:19
After playing this app for a few years now, across iPhone generations 5-8, this app has consistently remained golden. It’s a no-frills app, so if a beautiful design (somehow) impacts your sudoku game, it may not be for you. If you are like me, however, and like to easily switch between levels of difficulty and the option to save games for later, than look no further!
Helped Me Through A Rough Patch
by Wodehouse fan on 2017/10/23 02:45
Was in an hospital for a very long time. Pastor's wife brought me a Sudoku book. It took me 30 minutes to 2 days to do an easy one. I was on a lot of heavy-duty drugs. Docs said 5 year convalescence. I've been doing these the whole 5 years. It helped work through the drugs, etc.. I enjoy doing these now. I can sometimes make through Hard in under 15 minutes.
Used to love this, but maybe no good for older iPhone
by AdverseMartyr on 2019/10/21 03:31
I’ve had this app for years, and in the last month it became problematic in that their little ad bar for paying to remove ads from the app started to become something that would bring up a pop up window after leaving the app asking if I wished to use my thumb to verify the purchase of removing ads. This is showing up on my home screen. Well yesterday when I pressed the home button it also verified the purchase because I was double pressing the home button to switch to a different app. And Apple won’t refund the purchase.
Pretty good
by Rick6954 on 2019/03/28 19:18
Lightweight but occasionally has an ad that causes a beeping sound and stops music from playing. Also I’ve had this app for several years and not once have I been able to solve Expert without reaching a point where guessing is mandatory. The whole point of sudoku is that you should never have to guess but unless there’s some kind of advanced technique I’m missing, expert always requires guessing at some point.
My self esteem went down a few notches!
by Miss Munchkin the 1st on 2018/02/18 12:58
I agree with Grumpy Pegasus, I used to play only with the hard level, and expert every now and then , but I don’t think I’ve ever been able to finish one of those on that app. I thought my brain was turning into mush until I read G P’s review... I don’t understand why I can do a medium in no time and face a wall with the hard level.... frustrating...
Best Sudoku app out there
by Honeychilly on 2019/10/06 20:23
I love every feature of this Sudoku app. I’ve tried others but their optics are distracting, or their space to play in is frustrating, or their features don’t work as smoothly as this one. My day isn’t complete until I’ve played several of these games. Makes the mind work better with logic skills....I think🤔💕
Highlight ALL
by Grampa_50 on 2020/09/09 13:39
I have been playing this game every day for a few years and enjoy doing it. There is however one upgrade I would like to see that no other game has. When you tap a number all of those numbers highlight. I would also like to see the entire block, row and column of ALL those numbers highlighted. So it shows a blank space on the grid where that number could be. Enjoy!
Ads are horrible
by Harvester234567 on 2018/01/12 04:58
I love this app from a puzzle perspective but the ads have officially ruined it for me. Occasionally I get a scam pop up when I accidentally click into the ad (didn’t know that was possible on a phone) saying I’ve been selected to win something or other and I have to close the app completely to get rid of the pop up. Today when I accidentally clicked on the ad, porn showed up. I never look at porn so I know it’s not pulling from my search history or anything. To say this app is for ages 4+ freaks me out. Deleted the app and will not be giving it any more chances.
Ads everywhere and wildly expensive to remove.
by Nathanahel on 2020/05/23 18:22
I have to agree with other recent reviewers that the ads have gotten very intrusive and have largely ruined an otherwise great sudoku implementation. I too have had this for a while and never minded the ads below or a rare pop up (except that it turns off the audio I’m trying to play), but it’s become very frequent and unlike previously, it’s now been many months without an adjustment. To add insult to injury, if you want to remove ads, it’s $25. That’s outrageous. I might pay $2.50, but instead I’m going to find a better sudoku app.
Malicious Ads Are Even Worse Now
by RIGymMom on 2017/10/05 00:07
I’ve had this app since my iPhone4, even though the data never transfers between phone purchases and even though there’s been issues with malicious ads for about a year that have yet to be addressed. Lately, the ads have gotten so much worse - chirping, crashing the app, etc. But, today was the last straw. Instead of popping up a virus warning or a you’ve won message, a pornographic picture was frozen on my screen until I could get the app to close. I have children. This is horrifically unacceptable. Deleting this app as we speak!
I like this app
by ~jori~ on 2018/01/16 06:54
When i say like, it doesn't mean that something's wrong, it means that sudoku isn't the thing that i would do if i was in a happy mood. Anyways, this sudoku app is very realistic and i like how it has the feature where you can put the number that you think would fit in that space in the corner.
Not Impressed
by mailani kuini on 2017/11/18 15:33
TicBits had a great game - sleek, visually elegant; only thing keeping it from being perfect was the lack of a reset button. Well, you did that finally, but at great sacrifice. The game now looks clunkier, cheesier, cheaper. That white screen at the start is most annoying, especially in a darker room. The game screen looks dumbed down and the fading numbers as they’re used confirms that. And red for the reset button? Really? (not to mention those green buttons for different games) I’ll be looking for another game that’s more pleasing to the eye.
Great app, but there’s a weird bug
by Dyb^ on 2021/02/24 02:42
The numbers are clear and when you tap on the number the row and column are highlighted, which I like. Also, when you fill a number the penciled clues go away, which I like, too. There are two bugs I found. 1. when you reset a puzzle, sometimes the numbers are faded so you can’t fill them in; you have to press the eraser button to “clear” it. 2. The app makes a really quiet “chkkt” sound on repeat. Not only should the app make no sounds, but it drains my AirPods. On a side note, the expert puzzles have stumped me to the point where they were impossible to solve without brute forcing a guess and I don’t like that at all. Please make sure all the puzzles are solvable. -DYB
Decent graphics/gameplay, but…
by Syki94 on 2018/03/03 08:00
The achievements and scoreboards don't work. Every time I open them, it tells me that they're not available. And when I start the app, I get a cascade of notifications telling me I got a new achievement. It's really annoying. 🙁 ETA: I just opened the achievements to get screencaps, and they work for the first time in months! I have no idea how or why, but I'm not complaining. 😂
