Post some Apple users willing to test?
Hi,

I initialily posted this in the "Sudoku" subforum: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1137
but I'm guessing not many people read it [mellow]

edit: now anyone can test the app on iOS using the following link:

Hi Patrick

As I mostly use my iPad or iPhone when solving puzzles, I'll be happy to test the app.

Cheers
Paul

Thanks.

You'll need to install the Apple "TestFlight" app on your ipad and/or iphone.

I'll add your email to the list of testers, after which you'll get automatic notifications when a new version can be tested.

(assuming your email in my database is the same as the one you use for Apple)

Ok. I've loaded it on my iPad as this is what I mainly use.

Is it OK to share feedback on this forum, or would you prefer me to do it my pm/email?

I had a quick look at it yesterday. If I manage to get all today's puzzles solved, I'll have another look at it later today.

My initial thoughts are that it looks good and I like the added feature where pencil marks are positioned by reference to their position on a 1-9 grid i.e. 123 on top row, 456 on next row and so on. I also like the feature where pencil marks turn red if they are no longer possible after another entry is made in the same row/column. Are these features that you are thinking of introducing on this site?

Given that some code is shared between the two,
it shouldn't be that difficult to add these options to the site as well [drool]

bumping this again, I still need more Apple users to test..

(I have one Apple tester so far, and about 25 Android testers)

It is possible that the barrier for Apple users is too high, because they also have
to install this "Testflight" app [mellow]

It's working fine for me. I'm not sure there's a lot of difference in terms of difficulty between the light, medium and heavy puzzles, but I've done a relatively small sample, so it's probably a bit soon to be drawing conclusions in that regard.

Also, I've only tested it on my iPad as I have very little space on my iPhone, so I'm reluctant to download new apps unless absolutely necessary.

Thanks [woot]

You're the only Apple tester so far (the other Apple accounts in the rankings are mine [smile] )
