Functional But Needs Work
The application functions as described however it is very hard on the eyes and entering numbers requires too many keystrokes. On the bright side, I found the first puzzle well constructed, but I don't think I can brave the interface as is to do another one. I also really like the instant feedback of a red number when I insert an incorrect number. I do think with a few changes this could be a great app. Here are my suggestions:
Get rid of the two tone squares, it is making my eyes swim. Use a single lighter shade for the caged cells.
Make a more distinct outline for the squares. A thick black line would work. I had to keep counting rows to figure out where the squares were.
Make the sum totals darker. I had trouble making some of them out.
Loose the separate popup for number entry. Yikes what a lot of unneeded keystrokes, and the dimming and lightening of my screen was driving me batty! Instead put the numbers in a single row along the bottom - there plenty of room. Let a single touch of a number be a pencil mark and a double tap or touching an already selected one be a pen mark.
Allow a 4th pencil mark. I like the bigger numbers and agree that you don't need all of the numbers which would be impossible to read, but 3 won't be enough for hard puzzles.
I hope the calculator you are planning on adding will work simply. I would like to be able to highlight any number of square to calculate. Remember that hard puzzles often require you to add square that are not adjacent. I suggest touching a calculate button to allow you to starting highlighting squares and then touch it again to sum the highlighted squares. Selecting a square after the calcuation will revert to just selecting individual cells for entering numbers.
There are many puzzles with mistakes, incorrect amounts, 0 in place of a number. Disappointing.
Quite a few puzzles with mistakes. Very frustrating and disappointing. There aren't a lot of choices out there for Killer Sudoku, but thankfully some of the Killer SDK puzzles that aren't riddled with mistakes can be solved, providing a nice and fun challenge. Since this is a paid app, it would be great to see updates to correct the mistakes, as they occur frequently.
