Happy so far
I've downloaded two Sudoku apps so far, and right now I prefer this one to Sudoku Uno. Uno is much prettier, but the user interface is pretty arcane. This one is much more straightforward and easy to use. As with the other, I'd like to see the pencil suggestions vary in size based on the number of possibilities left: the fewer the larger. And I'd like an autocomplete option so I don't have to go through and enter all the squares for which there's just one possibility left at the end of the game when all the real solving's been done.

Got issues
I was just now playing a game at Hard. Put iPad down. Picked it up a moment later, only to realize I'd brushed "New Game" by accident. Again. 1. Add confirm to new game. 2. Remember "pencil" on/off settings. Hate having to reenable it every time I take a break from the game. 3. FIX BEGINNER MODE. First time I played I played at beginner level which was really hard. Then I tried Easy, the next level, and it was ten times EASIER than beginner. Err?? Love it but honestly with the above, 2 is the rating from me. Got issues, but once those are fixed, this'll rock. ;)

Well conceived, puzzles could be harder.
Well conceived and executed. All functions are readily available and work as expected. My only issue would be that puzzles generated are too easy to solve, even at the hardest difficulty.

Official sudoku
The interface is subtle yet quite attractive. Much more handsome than the other Sudoku apps, IMO. Gameplay is smooth. I've discovered no glitches nor problems. Certainly worth the price. I would highly recommend, however, that the answer number pad be enlarged. Some folks, like myself, will too often hit an adjacent number next to the intended one.

Clean, simple
This is a clean and simple app, very well-executed, with no major issues. It does have a couple of (very) minor annoyances. - The answer and pencil mark boxes could be larger. There is plenty of room and it would make it easier to hit the right number. - Don't hide the pencil marks every time I enter the app. The app lacks a number of optional features that I like to have in sudoku apps. - Gray out digit sets that have been solved (e.g. When all nine 1's are found, dim the 1's) - Allow swipe of row or column to apply a 'sticky' highlight - Automatically highlight pencil marks that conflict with numbered cells - Tap a numbered cell to highlight all matching numbered cells - Allow alternating red/blue cell highlighting for chain-solving

The BEST sudoku I have EVER played!
The other reviewers are right - this game is AMAZING. Everything about the interface is elegantly simplistic, and fully functional. The attention to aesthetic is really what makes this game shine. There are no gaudy colors or fonts - everything is easy on the eyes, and it's super responsive. The board eraser button is wild. It's pretty fun to swipe your finger across the board like a real eraser. Every puzzle is beautifully symmetric - unlike other versions that sprinkle givens across the board randomly, even the givens in this game are beautifully arranged. Page curling animations are also a nice touch. If you're looking for silly alternate versions of sudoku (samurai sudoku, super sudoku, 1000x1000 sudoku), then this isn't for you. If you're like me, however, and just want to play the official version of sudoku without any gimmicky features or cheesy graphics getting in your way, then this is the one you want. Everything about this game smacks of perfection. I couldn't be happier. Totally worth the download.
