Kakuro - also known as Cross Sums - is a challenging and fun logic puzzle for people who want to give their brain a bit of a workout. Kakuro is one of the top logic puzzles worldwide, appearing in printed newspapers, magazines, books, and numerous software implementations for smartphones, tablets and computers. 

Whether you are new to Kakuro or an experienced player currently using another app, you owe it to yourself to download and try Art of Kakuro. The app was designed to make the experience of playing Kakuro on a mobile device more efficient and enjoyable than anything else available. For example, in other Kakuro apps, adding notes to indicate what digits are possible in a row or column is annoyingly tedious. Art of Kakuro makes this far faster and easier by allowing multiple selections, and by allowing dragging across the number input buttons to enter multiple consecutive digits. As a result, entering notes for a row of three spaces with a sum of 10 takes 2 tap-and-swipe gestures instead of 24 taps. Advantages like these will make other apps seem frustrating once you've used Art of Kakuro!

Art of Kakuro also offers unparalleled choice in gameplay and appearance. There are a number of input control schemes used in various Kakuro apps, but only Art of Kakuro gives YOU the choice, with 11 input control variations available. Options for color scheme, background image and font allow you to find a style that looks good to YOU - and to change it periodically to keep it fresh. Portrait and landscape orientations are fully supported on both iPhones and iPads, once again giving YOU the choice of holding your device as you want.

Download it today and see for yourself why Art of Kakuro is the premier Kakuro experience for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or new (Apple Silicon-based) Mac.

Love it but Don't make mistakes

I love doing math puzzles. The tables they list are very helpful. I don't like how to undue errors. The 3 star difficulty ones are crazy hard. I wish I could put my possible answers in different colors for vert or horizontal answers in the 3 star puzzles. This app definitely keeps my brain thinking. I spend most of my time doing the 2 stars. Wish it kept a log or some record of how long each puzzle I've done. It's well worth the small cost to upgrade from the free version. I say if you like math puzzles you'll love this!

Great fun

I like the ability to change colors to differentiate solutions that are rock solid. If I do need to back track, I know not to change those.

Excellent customer service when I thought I had an issue; it was my issue, not the app's.

And I Thought It Couldn't Get Better...

I am a Cross Sums fan, and have tested out most of them. This version of a classic has custom settings (font, background, color, etc.), landscape mode, an extensive hint mode, various sizes of puzzles, and is a unique puzzle generator! Buy once, and you have endless puzzles to be solved.
