The best valid score I got in easy level is 4mins 2secs. I wish I could achieve a time of below 2mins.

I got my first sub 2 minute a few days ago but my avg is about 2:30 to 3:00. All of my 10 are below the 2:34 mark.

Tried Extreme for the first time - 4:50 was my time.
Can't get under 1:16 on easy, top 10 for easy is 1:16-1:21.

Woohoo!!! I got 1:01 today. Yes, it was valid and I'm actually pretty damn proud. Had one that would've been sub-1min but I got tripped up.

Also got a 1:01 just now for a top 100 of the day. Top 10 scores all under 1:10. Hanging for a sub-minute score though.

My best time so far is 2:12 (using on-screen keyboard & cell first input option) but I'm not that fast on my fairly small smart phone touchscreen (3"), otherwise would probably be considerably faster. For example my best time in a similar easy level sudoku on my laptop is 1:07 (using numpad).

EDIT: After 2 small improvements my new personal best is 2:09.

My best times are: Easy - 2:36 ; Medium - 3:40; Hard - 7:09 and Extreme 9:03. Mostly, I work on "Easy". Sometimes my phone is just slow, because the game will freeze and I won't be able to key in anything for 10-15 seconds. (Playing on my HTC One X)

My top easy score is 27 secs. It may seem impossible to others but my parents have watched me do it. It's just a weird quirk and I wouldn't even know how to go about cheating with this app.

I have only ever twice got under 1 min for Easy and it was only due to easier games than normal or a lot of caffeine because normally my scores range from 1:20 to 4:30 at times!

My best time in easy is 1:46, but I average - on a daily basis - 2 - 3 min.

I switched to "digit first" a while back, and my times started dropping like a rock. The way I now play, there are many fewer touches required to complete any given puzzle. My best easy time is now just over 40 seconds.

I'd like to know the algorithm they use to determine the difficulty level. There are several Easy puzzles that I can tear through in less than a minute, but there are some other I encounter that take me over 4 minutes to solve. This can be a very frustrating experience, as my slowest top-10 time for Extreme on my phone is around 2:40 (and the best is under 2 minutes). Of course, to get the good Extreme times I am using the "notes" feature -- something I never use on Easy, and only on Mediums when there is a competition.

Back to the cheating thing -- I can now believe that there are people out there capable of solving an Easy puzzle in less than 30 seconds. I do not see how it would be possible to even touch the screen fast enough to solve any puzzle in 20 seconds or less. The single-digit times that you occasionally see are absolutely cheats.

I just looked at the top-100 times for today. In the Easy category, I see times from :34 to :57 (I'm at position #86 with a time of :53!). Based on my experience, I can believe all of these times. If there is anyone cheating in the Easy category, then their cheating system sucks, or they want the times to blend in. The other categories seem in order as well. In fact, my personal top-10 times for each category would all be top-100 daily times today (though I would only crack the top 10 of those in a couple of cases). It has been a while since I have seen a time that I would consider to be a cheat posted to the Genina boards.
