Fun Technical Stuff
- This app uses some sophisticated techniques with multiple neural networks and GPU based parallel processing to bring you easy-to-use real-time AR cube solving for the first time on an iOS device.
Some things to know:
- A real Rubik’s Cube is not required for the Virtual Cube, but is required for the Augmented Reality section of the app.
- The A.R. feature uses all the superpowers of the iPhone, so you may notice it drains your phone battery faster than normal.
- The A.R. feature is sensitive to lighting. If you find the A.R. is not seeing your Rubik's Cube reliably, move to a room with different lighting to see if that improves results.
- The 3D Virtual Cube runs at 60 frames per second to create a smooth gaming experience, but you may notice that it will also drain your phone battery faster than normal.
Ratings and Reviews
Love the app, but lacking some options
I love the app, and I’ve learned a little about solving the cube. However for me personally I would like there to be two added features 1) a virtual assistant to help solve the puzzle without having to purchase an actual runic cube 2) a color blind option. I understand the nestalgia of keeping with the colors but for me (someone who suffers from red/green deficiency) it’s hard to tell the orange and green apart from each other. A color blind option might be a great solution for those of us who want to play the puzzle but struggle in solving it fully.
Great for beginners! Slight problem
This app is pretty great! If anybody’s got a Rubik’s cube laying around their house, a phone, and some spare time, they could probably learn to solve using this app! The AR system seems really cool (although I was not able to try it myself because I wasn’t using a Rubik’s brand) but I have seen people use it efficiently! Although, if I had to criticize something, it’d have to be the virtual cube and the timing system. Firstly, the virtual cube, like many other virtual cubes, is hard to control, and that makes sense as it’s hard for the system to detect which side you’re trying to turn at all times, but it is slightly better than other ones I’ve tried, so good on your part Rubik’s! Secondly, the timer is very weird. To start timing, you have to tap the bottom of the screen, which can be really weird. I recommend making it so you can start inspection by tapping anywhere on the screen like ChaoTimer and CubingTime. Also, having to change your scramble by pressing that specific area in the middle is also weird. Once again, I recommend making so you slide your finger across the screen, or double, or something other than just tapping that specific area. But nonetheless, the app is really good and I think with some adjustments it could be perfect!
Developer Response ,
We are glad that you like it! Thank you for your feedback. We take all feedback seriously and will consider improving those functions in future release. Thanks.
Lot of improvements needed.
The AR scanner is extremely hard to get a good scan with. I tried for an hour straight and it would throw me right back to the beginning. Also, I would hole the cube in the right spot and it just wouldn’t scan! The virtual cube was nice but it doesn’t feel right solving a cube by looking at the corner of a side the whole time and made it a bit hard to realize if I was doing a R or F move. The cube timer was nice and was easy to navigate and the count down at the end of inspection was a nice touch. Still a lot of room for improvement on the other features though. Maybe for the AR you should add a manual way to import the cube that pulls up a menu with the stickers and have it show the moves through a virtual cube and when they are ready for the next step they hit an arrow or something. As for the virtual cube, if it were made so you can look at a view you want from just about any angle that might be a good feature to add.
