Is it any good?

There’s no shortage of good Sudoku games for mobile devices and SUDOKU HD for iPad doesn’t do a lot to separate itself from the crowd. That said, it’s still a strong contender if only because it doesn’t do anything wrong. With thousands of puzzles (plus the ability to create your own), four levels of difficulty, and useful annotation and help systems, it competently covers all the bases. It could do with a little audio/visual inspiration, though. The presentation is pleasant and clever -- game options are actually clickable objects scattered across a virtual desk upon which the Sudoku puzzles sit -- but a selection of backgrounds and music options would have afforded avid players a much needed change of scenery and sound.
