I don't have a whole lot of time to spend here (sadly), so I'm a frequent user of autogreens from mediums up. It is a huge time saver (at least for me).
8:02 am

I am using a Kindle and haven't figured out how to enter greens so I never use them. No problem unless it's an Expert, then I struggle but eventually get it done.

Judy, you would have to cut and paste the javascript to the URL box then go to the beginning and add javascript: before "for", then hit enter, for it to work.

Using autogreens is allowing a program to enter numbers into your puzzle. If you use that I don't see how you can say that "you" solved the puzzle yourself. I don't really care one way or the other but it just seems like it is not just a convenience tool but also an assist. Even if that assist is minimal.

My use of "greens" is like this. When I get to a point where I have a choice between 2 numbers in a cell I put a green of one of them in that cell and then Save a Checkpoint. I then continue with black numbers until I run into a conflict. If I run into a conflict I return to Checkpoint and put in the other number and save as checkpoint again. I continue like this until I run into a situation where I have a green number, no conflicts, but all the remaining cells could have more than one number. I then choose a cell that can have only 2 possible values and use reds with one of those numbers and all resulting numbers from that point on. If I run into a conflict with the first red number, I then try the 2nd one and if I run into a conflict I know my green is incorrect.

I guess that could be termed guessing.

Having never used autogreens I have a question. When you use it , does it show a single green in a cell that you missed before you turned it on?
5:17 pm

Yes. But you don't turn it on, you run it. It doesn't stay active. You can run it again later if and when you choose.

As for assists, you automatically benefit from an assist by using IronSudoku because it warns you if you make a basic error such as putting a 9 in a row which already has a 9. If you want no assists at all, you will have to play elsewhere. Unthinkable, of course.
