    I just did it. It's crazy. It's pretty much a damn tricorder at this point.

    As the above two stated, I did the same thing. It's pretty cool and pointless.

    I'm going to bet my wife sexual favors that I can do sudoku puzzles faster than her. She knows I suck at them so this will be epic.

    Anyone really use this app. I find it just sitting on my phone, finally got rid of it.

    Google Goggles? I use it quite a bit to identify pictures and use it as my bar code scanning software.

    Re: Google Goggles solves Sudoku

    It works as bar code scanning, even on QR codes? Well that I didn't know...

    Re: Google Goggles solves Sudoku

    Pretty simple technology. There has been text recognition software on the market for years and writing code to solve a soduko probably isn't all that hard. Combining those to run on a phone in a seamless quick program is the challenge.

    Being an electrical engineer, I only program when I have to, but I would say that an algorithm that works on a phone as quickly as that did to solve a Sudoku puzzle is pretty impressive.
