    Do any of the iPhone Sudoku apps use colors instead of numbers? I have a version on my iPaq (Pocket PC) made by Resco that I really like. It uses nine colors to represent the numbers. I find it much easier to quickly determine which ones are missing in a row/column/block than with numbers. With numbers, I'm constantly counting up to 9. With the colors, my brain works much faster.

    Have you looked at Ruboku?

    That's the only thing that resembles what you describe in the AppStore when searching for Sudoku.

    There's Ruboku, uses 9 colors, and has a good ratings.

    iTunes Link:

    Heh, simple website, but if you don't have iTunes, you can see the colors here:

    Not sure, guessing you can't enter individual colors. But you start with an empty grid with the nine main squares. Below, you have 9 tiles with the 9 colors in each. Drag the entire thing where ever you want on the main board. You can double tap to rate the tile. Any time a color is on the same column or row, it has an X over it. So you have to move this tiles with the 9 colors around, and rotate them.

    A review says it's like a Rubix Cube meets Sudoku.

    Heh, here's a real life version:
