The Rubik\'s Cube is an instantly recognizable object in today\'s world and has been that way for years. The traditional 3x3 cube has presented a challenge for a huge amount of people taking some serious devotion to master. Well now it\'s available on the iPhone for everyone to enjoy. The app is one of the first to take advantage of the new iPhone 4\'s gyroscope.

Users can turn around to spin the cube and get different angles on it. Well, at least, that\'s the idea behind it. Users have been reporting issues with the functionality and my own version was having the same problems. There is a fix on it\'s way and most likely has already made it into the App Store by the time you see this review. The app comes with quite a few features to explore from the different game modes to the teacher mode which will explain how to solve a Rubick\'s Cube.

There\'s actually quite a bit of functionality put into the app although hardcore users will definitely complain it\'s not as fast as holding one in your hand. Still, the app offers plenty of fun things to do and even comes with a Rubick\'s Cube solver for those of you who want to cheat and let the app figure it out. If you enjoy this popular puzzle, you like this app. Check it out.
