App description: E-Cube was developed regarding the well-known cube puzzle. It makes you a fantastic 3D cube in your pocket that you can play it anywhere and anytime.

E-Cube provides you two gaming modes - Teaching mode and Playing mode. If you are new to the cube puzzle, choose Teaching mode to learn how to solve a cube with a step-by-step instruction; Otherwise, choose Playing mode to practice cube solving or just kill the time.

In Teaching mode you are introduced a beginner method called "Layer Method" which requires memorizing only a few algorithms and can achieve solves of 60 seconds or faster when done efficiently. For more details about beginner method for solving a cube, you can google "Beginner Cube Solution".

Features

- Solving algorithms are displayed vividly for you to remember.
- You can practice each solving stage by yourself to enhance the learning.
- Undo and redo function allows you to try moves without risking losing your progress.
- Auto-save function makes a quick save of the playing status so that you can resume the application anytime.
- Time and move counters are displayed as a reminder.
- Auto-shuffling at the start.

Interaction

- Rotate any cube slice by touching and swiping along its edge with ONE finger.
- Rotate the whole cube by touching and swiping the middle layer of the cube with ONE finger.
- Change the cube orientation by touching and moving to the direction with TWO fingers.
- In Teaching mode, swipe the step-blocks to go forward/back.
- In Showing Steps mode, you can NOT rotate the cube but change the cube orientation.

Very interested in this as I went through a phase of trying to complete a random cube in less than a minute but couldn't get under 2 minutes using a method I found on the net.
I'm at work so can't check iTunes.. How much is it?

Hmm this looks better than the free Rubix cube app that was released a while ago, although it suffered from one thing.

One question, can you rotate just the middle itself?

My law: Play any game you get starting on it's hardest difficulty. It's less fun and more frustrating that way

When I was 12, I learned a method from a book and could do it reasonably quickish, not competitive mind you. Recently, 27 years later, I picked up the book and found it too confusing and not interesting enough to bother.

Sometimes you just cant go back...
