I’m constantly being asked what applications I like best, as friends and family buy iPhones. And, I sometimes download a few too many apps and need to clean house. So, I’m using this to both rate my favorite applications, and to help me keep track of things I need.
While some may consider gaming to be a complete waste of the iphone’s usefulness, I beg to differ. What better way to relax your head than a little sudoku. Plus, I’m a bit of a gamer . . .

Oh and just a side note for all you seeking the way of the sudoku, sudoku wasn't invented in Japan, it was invented by Howard Garns an American architect in 1979. It was originally called "Number Place", but it was made popular by a Japanese company who changed the name to sudoku, meaning 1 number. There is some random info for you to use to win a beer.

Sudoku truly is a ‘Mighty Mighty Good Game
Mighty Mighty Good Games Sudoku (free) is a free app designed to make the game of Sudoku portable and pencil-less. Sudoku is a popular puzzle featuring squares that must be filled in with numbers 1-9. The app itself does not have directions on how to play the game, but the developer’s website does.
The board of Sudoku (free) is easy to navigate. A tap highlights one of the boxes on the board and then a tap of one of the numbers at the bottom of the screen fills the box in. Users can select “notes” to fill in boxes with several small numbers in order to keep track of possibilities for that box. This feature is a must for the harder puzzles. The game automatically disables the numbers once they have been used one per 9-box square. This option is useful to stop mistakes from happening.
The automatic off feature, called “Smart Buttons” can be disabled in the options menu. Other options include a timer, use of multiple notes, showing incorrect answers and “smart notes”. The last two options are nice for beginners, but make the game far too easy for an experienced player. If a user chooses, they can have the game mark their answers in red if they are incorrect. “Smart notes” is a button that can be clicked and all available answers for each box will be filled in as small notes. Beginner players can also click “Hint” and have a selected box filled in the correct answer, or if no box is selected, a random box filled in with a correct answer.
For the more advanced player, the “hard” and “expert” settings provide enough of a challenge without forcing the user to rely on guessing. The app keeps track of the fastest time puzzles were solved in each difficulty setting, making setting new records a challenge. The timer can be paused with the push of a button, if the app is exited or if the iPhone/iPod is turned off. Games can also be saved this way.
In addition to ease of navigation and customizable options, there four color schemes to choose from allowing users can select one that looks best to them. Should an entirely red screen not work for someone, there is always brown. Also, there are not any distracting graphics or animations in this app – the puzzle is the focus.
The only downside to this app is that the free version only offers 40 puzzles, 10 in each skill level. Users have to upgrade to the full version ($2.99) to have access to 500 puzzles.

This is the colour version for all fans of Sudoku.
I’ve been playing the basic Sudoku game (it’s free) a lot. the sudokos puzzles are great and the functionality is good. You select a cell and then a number/ colour for that cell. Because of it’s ease of use and clean design I soon started thinking faster and more complex than on paper sudokus. I even started playing hard and expert levels.
There is a note function which allows you to note possible entries for a cell. Optionally they can be smart, which means that if you place a 3 in one block, all cells that have a three as a note will be automatically updeted. The app will also inactivate the number buttons if a number is already placed in all blocks. What I don’t like is the hint button, because I don’t want to cheat but sometimes I incidently touch it.
Now I started color sudoku. It’s different, because looking for all yellow squares is faster and easier than looking for all numbers of one kind. What’s harder though is looking for missing colours in rows because it’s easier to count from 1 to 9 than memorizing the colour names especially if you’re using a colour scheme similar colours. Look at the pinkish image and try naming the colours to understand what I mean. This is challenging my brain and that exactly is what Sudokus are good for!

Sudoku (Free) Adds up to Good Times
Sudoku has been a favored pastime for newpaper-gamers for a long time. Usually right next to the crossword, it offers a game of numbers that is easier to conquer. For those of you who don’t know what sudoku is, it involves 9 large boxes which has another 9 boxes inside each large box. The trick of the game is that you have to get the numbers 1 through 9 in each large box as well as each column and row of the entire board. Sounds complicated, but it’s really a simple concept once you understand it.
Sudoku (Free) brings the game to you at anytime — not just when you have a newspaper. Sudoku is a perfect game for the morning train commute or any free time that you find yourself with nothing to do. This application offers a variety of difficulty levels: easy, medium, hard, and expert. If you’re stumped, there is a hint button that gives you a number to try and help you along.
Sudoku (Free) also offers handcrafted puzzles that come in different color assortments and three different styles: standard, symmetrical, and patterned.
Let’s talk about the downfalls and it should be fast because I only have one. And that is that when you place a number into the wrong box it tells you right away by turning the number red. You can shut this off in the option’s panel. But, as a sudoku purists, I don’t think it should be an option because it defeats the whole point of the game.
Sudoku (Free) has done a great job bringing sudoku to the iPhone and iPod Touch and gives everyone a chance to play it anytime they want. Forget the newspaper or sudoku book and save your money. Go download Sudoku (Free).

Mighty Mighty's Sudoku is quite customizable. Players can choose timed or untimed games, decide whether incorrect answers should be highlighted, and even set the board's color scheme.
There's a free version so you can check out the gameplay, but the real customization options happen in the $3 paid app, which features more than 250 puzzles in four difficulty levels. There's no music, which means you can listen to your iPod without a hitch. And the portrait-view interface is serenly uncluttered.
