Needs more skins

I really like the functionality and UI of the app, but the grid lines are not stark enough to easily distinguish other grids so it's a bit laboring on the eyes to play for any duration.

Love this game!!

This game is worth the money for the full version because the expert level has the best challenges! So glad I found this game! Enjoy!

Fun Little App.

Keeps the little grey cells working. Nice screen, like vellum. WARNING-solving these becomes addictive- elementary once you get the hang of it but, because it changes, not monotonous. Good job! Clever theme-SACD quotes.
