How To Solve A Rubik's Cube

The Rubik's Cube was a very successful puzzle toy back in the 80's back when it first came out and it is still sold today with great success.

More than 350 million units have been sold since then and chance is you find one eventually at a friend's house or even at your own.

The majority of people who tried to solve the cube gave up in frustration, which maybe would not have happened if they would have taken a look at the How To Solve A Rubik's Cube application first.

The free software offers an easy step by step guide that explains how to solve any cube. Each step shows a before and after image and the moves necessary to reach that stage.

All that it takes now to solve the Rubik's Cube is to follow each step to the letter. It may take a bit longer on the first run but will speed up on consecutive tries until the guide is no longer needed to solve the cube and impress bystanders and those that cannot solve it.

There is also an advanced section that gives tips on how to solve the puzzle even faster. It requires some experience with solving cubes and more reading as the explanations require more text than the standard solving instructions.

How to solve a Rubik's Cube is a handy portable application that teaches Rubik's Cube owners who to solve the puzzle. The free software is available for download at the developer's Blogspot website.

Using the information provided by the online service can on the other hand help you understand how cubes are solved in general.
