SudokuPDQ for iPad

Alongside crossword puzzles, the game that is a family favorite in any local newspaper is Sudoku.

However, the developers of this game have taken Sudoku to another level, allowing users to do things with the game that can’t be found in any old newspaper. Although its graphics aren’t particularly flashy, SudokuPDQ captures all that it needs to in regard to the game of Sudoku.

The bad news: the app requires that you already be subscribed to cable or satellite service to access most of the live streaming. Early reviews also criticize it for only offering portrait view for video. Apparently there will be some limited live streaming even if you don't subscribe to a service.

Apps that have sold a lot, historically, are ranked higher. One might say this is class warfare, as the rich get richer, but this makes some sense. Proven apps are likely to continue to be desirable. There's safety in numbers.
