Sudoku Works is the latest of many Sudoku puzzle apps released for the Kindle. Unlike the other puzzles, however, this is an “unlimited” set of puzzles at multiple levels. The style of play in each of these games is slightly different. Not surprisingly, this one matches the Sudoku game found in the Puzzle Pack 1 also made by Oak Systems Leisure Software.

The navigation is well done. You can use the top row of letters as keys (Q=1, W=2, etc), or navigate using the 5-Way controller using the grid at the bottom right by using the Select key to move between the puzzle grid and the choice grid (see the screenshot).

Pressing the Menu key shows the many options available for Sudoku Works

Pressing the Menu key shows the many options available

The Menu key controls the many options in the game such as hiding the timer, selecting Undo, highlighting mistakes, “pencil marks”, clear all, show solution, and pause the timer.  Although there are many possible puzzles, each one comes with a code on the bottom that you can share with others so they can play the same game. A thoughtful touch.

We’re not expert enough in Sudoku to judge the appropriateness of the 5 difficulty levels, but when combined with the grid sizes available of 4×4, 6×6, 8×8 and 9×9 and the millions of combinations, this is certain to satisfy most Sudoku players!

Do you have an electronic address book somewhere, or possibly in multiple places?  A few hundred contacts in Microsoft Outlook, or a collection at Yahoo Mail? Or perhaps you have a smartphone and have imported everything into GMail or Apple Mail? Contacts, a new app for Kindle, will let you quickly transfer all those contacts to your Kindle. And then, as fast as you can type, it will search and show you the matching contacts on the Kindle’s wonderful E Ink display. (Click here for import instructions.)

Contacts lets you update and enter new information directly on the Kindle and also export the data so you can load it into any other address book that supports the popular vCard format. It will let you store and edit the following fields:

Search for "car"

Search results update as you type each letter

  • name
  • multiple addresses
  • multiple phone numbers
  • multiple emails
  • multiple organization and titles
  • nickname
  • a lengthy notes field

All these fields are instantly searchable as you type. The super flexible search makes the notes field particularly useful. The search is also great for answering the “What was his name again?” questions as you can search by other fields like address or the area code of the phone number.

Whether you have a set of contacts already or would like to start collecting them on your Kindle, Contacts is a great solution.
