I have two suggestions that might help improve the app. Let me know what y'all think about this. Anyone else want these features?

When solving the puzzle using "digit entry mode", occasionally I'll accidentally click the wrong square. Not a big deal usually I notice right away and click undo (great function BTW). But I think that if I click on a square that already has a number solved in it, the app shouldn't just be so quick to replace that number. If you click on a square that was already solved, it should require confirmation before changing the number with whatever number I clicked. Maybe have an option for a pop-up request verifying "Do you want to change existing number?" or something like that (similar to how it asks if you want to resume game or start a new one) or maybe you'd have to double-click in order to put a number where one already exists. This is not a major complaint, but does occur frequently enough when I'm moving very fast and can be really annoying, especially if I don't notice right away. I don't think anyone would deliberately replace an existing number they already solved with a different one.

Secondly, and this may be harder to implement: can you come up with a way to write a pencil note marking that a certain number can NOT go in a square. Sometimes I use logic to recognize that a specific box or line cannot contain a certain number, and I'd like a quick way of noting that to remember. Maybe it could look like a small pencil mark grayed out or with a line through it crossing it off. I know many other people like myself utilise a notation form like this when solving on paper (which I rarely do nowadays thanks to your great app) and it would help improve your app's functionality.

Of course, both these suggestions can be made optional and controlled by the user settings, so you're not hindering anyone's usage if they do not like my suggestions. But I'd always think the more you can customize and cater to every user, then better off your doing!
