In the first blow to my new year's resolutions, I forgot to take my
Rubik's cube with me to France when visiting some of my girlfriend's
family for a late Christmas celebration. I had it ready to go and I
just forgot to put it in my bag.
Technology came to my rescue, as naturally, there's an app for that.
Several actually, though the first few I tried were terrible.
Knowing I'd only have to use it twice, I settled on the first
functional app I found,
Rubik's Cube 3D.
It's not very good. It doesn't support multitouch, so getting the
cube into a good rotation is very annoying. Sometimes the face
I want to turn is not the one that does. But for two solves, it
worked well enough that I could solve it in around 7 minutes,
which is really slow but not as slow as I expected.
This is the first of many short posts about nothing. Expect more.
Let's call it a status update on my resolutions. So far, so good.
