• Naked and Hidden Singles, Pairs, Triples, Quads, and Quintuples
• Locked Candidates Type 1 and 2

• Empty Rectangle
• Unique Rectangle Type 1 and 2
Innovative input method
Copying a Sudoku puzzle from printed matter has never been so easy and hassle-free. It's even fun. Tap on any number of squares, in any order. Then tap on the corresponding number keys, in the same order. Just like you would enter a phone number. Repeat until done. And done you are in typically 40 seconds, often less.
Check your input by tapping a button. Smart Sudoku will tell you whether the puzzle has a unique solution or not (usually caused by a typo or missing number).
Smart Sudoku helps you solve Sudokus in a professional way. Never add candidates, only remove them, even from multiple squares in one step. And, of course, never see candidates you eliminated reappear just because you turned candidates mode off and on. Should you ever get stuck (and no hints are available), have Smart Sudoku solve any square you wish. Or all squares for a given number. Or even the entire puzzle.
Novel scoring method
Unlike other Sudoku apps, Smart Sudoku rates how efficiently you solve a puzzle, not how quickly you do it. Solve every square one after the other and your score will remain at zero. Collect points by solving as many squares as possible for a given number in one step, and watch the blue progress bar grow. To get the maximum of 1000 points you need to solve each number in a single step.
Send an e-mail of a puzzle at any stage to your friends. If partially or fully solved, they'll also get the original puzzle. And, of course, they'll see your score, even a message about your making use of candidates. Recipients may paste the puzzle into their own copy of Smart Sudoku.
