If you are part of the Rubik's Cube community or want to join it, apps on your phone will be useful for you. They can help you improve your puzzle solving techniques or shorten the time it takes. This article presents the best interactive Rubik's cubes to download for iOS or Android. So let's get started..

The article has applications for different purposes. My favorite is Twisty Timer, but if you haven't encountered Rubik's Cube before, try Cube Algorithms. And for those who just love the assembly process, the Cube X is suitable. Interactive games are not as interesting as real ones, but if you want something as close to reality as possible, choose Flat Cube.

Cube Algorithms

The principle of the application is based on several ways to solve Rubik at different stages. It demonstrates different methods including 4LLL, CFOP, COLL, F2L, etc. The assembly is simple enough, but before using the application, you will need to get an idea of ​​the listed methods..

For example, you have chosen the most famous solution method - CFOP. It will divide the whole process into three parts - F2L, OLL and PLL, which is provided by the CFOP algorithm. After that, you will see all possible scenarios at the F2L stage and can activate them.

The application will not make you an assembly professional, but it will help you in this difficult task. A YouTube video demonstrating the basic puzzle solving techniques, together with Cube Algorithms to put them into practice, work wonders..

Available for Android and iPhone .

ASolver

ASolver will show you the steps to solve the puzzle. You just need to shoot the 6 sides of the cube with the camera and it will show you the best build. The maximum number of steps for a 3x3 cube is only 22.

In addition, you have the opportunity to collect different types of cubes - Pyramid, Pocket Cube, Megaminx, etc. The purpose of the app is simply to show you the best way to solve the puzzle you have, so it does not demonstrate the technique or explain the steps to take.

Available for Android .

Cube X

Cube X is similar to ASolver, but shows several solutions with different number of moves and a formula for the solution. The advantage of the app is that it provides templated build methods.

You can convert the cube to different patterns and designs instead of building it from scratch. But there is one drawback - only 3 * 3 dice support. If you have another option, you will have to use ASolver.

Available for Android .

Magic cube solver

Magic Cube Solver is the best build assistant for iOS. As in the previous two cases, you just need to show the puzzle and the app will solve it in 22 steps or less.

It also provides small assembly instructions showing the steps to take. However, Magic Cube Solver only supports a few cube options: 2 × 2, 3 × 3, 4 × 4, and Void.

Available for iPhone .

Twisty timer

Twisty Timer is a variation of the Pro Timer app that includes not only a timer, but other options as well: travel time, best score, and average score. You will find different timer options for different algorithms - for example, OLL and PLL.

In addition, you will have the option to create categories for multiple timers if you want to use multiple methods. Twisty Timer supports different cube options - 7 × 7, Pyramid, Megaminx, Clock, etc. In addition, there is a graph that will clearly show your progress in the game.

Available for Android and iPhone .

Magic Cube Puzzle 3D

Allows to collect Rubik's cubes from 2x2x2 to 8x8x8, pyramid and dodecahedron. In addition, it has an option for determining the time spent on moves and posting achievements on social networks. You can even connect to Google Play Games and see the leaderboard of other players.

The biggest problem with interactive Rubik's cubes on phones is reproducing movement inherent in 3D objects on a 2D screen. In any case, compared to others, this application has a better interface and also recognizes movements well.

Available for Android and iPhone .

Flat Cube (closed)

image

Flat Cube is a modified 2D version of the traditional Rubik's cube. You will have a 3 × 3 square with randomly placed colors, and you will need to make the same edges form a row or column.

When you move one block, the entire row is shifted horizontally or vertically according to your movement. That is, you will independently solve the Rubik's cube as you would in real life. As you progress through the levels, cubes 4 * 4, 5 * 5 and 7 * 7 will appear.

For some unknown reason, it is not available in the Play Store, so you need to download the ARK file and install it.

Go cube

image

Go Cube is a real 3x3 cube that any puzzle fan dreams of. It is capable of connecting to your phone using an app and tracking the build process. The app provides a special learning curve for beginners - there are many instructions explaining how to solve the puzzle from the current stage. The Go Cube is backlit to play at night and just looks really cool.

There is a timer that stops when you think about a move. You can view statistics for each stage and improve your results. If you have a friend with Go Cube, you have the opportunity to host competitions online. You can also compete with anyone from the GoCube Community - the community of Go Cube owners. There are even special "RedBull Rooms" for tournaments. Can you imagine the scale? But only finalists can enter them. A leaderboard is compiled every week.

Available for Android and iPhone .

Cube Timer

The Cube Timer was specially designed to solve the famous puzzle. It provides the minimum required for players - a timer, play time, and an option to shuffle. Instead of randomly shuffling, the app will give you the option to shuffle the edges in a specific way. In addition, you can see your best result and average score.

Available for Android .
