Few Issues (not touch friendly), but Typical Minesweeper

The game is your typical Minesweeper, but there are a few issues I wished were changed.

1. The hard version has squares right up to the sides of the nook. The bad part about this is that the touch pad isn't as sensitive on the edges of the screen. Because of this and the small size of the squares, sometimes it'll take 20-30 seconds to try to get a single or double tap on those edge squares. (I've lost more than a few games because the double tap ended up accidentally hitting the wrong square and I've got small fingers, so this HAS to be worse with someone with average sized fingers). It gets more than frustrating trying to clear a square and being unable after 10+ attempts to even select the correct square, or when it ends up hitting the wrong square.
2. The bomb flagging is only for 1 square at a time. I wish this was a toggle instead so I could mark all of the bombs I see on the board, instead of having to move back and forth, back and forth. My wrist actually started popping the last few times I played because of all the back and forth movements. It's worse when the bombs are all at the top of the screen and having 10 bombs to mark and needing to jump from the top to the bottom and back again.
3. You can't win the game until you mark all the bombs. The game doesn't realize that if there are 10 spaces uncleared and 10 bombs left that all of the empty spaces are bombs. You have to do twice the clicking back and forth to mark the rest of the bombs (which goes back to the problem I had in #2 which again has a chance of hitting problem #1)
4. You have a chance of hitting a bomb on your first square. (not the worst bug, but this version keeps track of the number of losses...and losing on your first square is an unavoidable loss.)

Other than that, the game seems to be what I expected.

    Don't waste your time--

    -- with this app. It is full of glitches, ie: tapping a square doesn't always work or selects a different square, and the outer squares cannot be selected at all.

    Used to love it

    Before the update, loved the game. After the update it takes 5 sec of constant tapping to reveal a square. Even then the square switches around.

    Hard

    I love this game! It's really hard, so I suggest the smallest size because that's the easiest.

    Nice game - very like the classic game.

    The boxes are a bit small, but meh, deal with it! If you like the challenge of mine sweeper, this is for you.

    Pretty Good

    Mminesweeper is pretty good but my complaints are 1. It loads slowly. 2. The sizes are large, medium, and small. The small is 9x9 which is very small but the boxes are the same size as the large so if you have big fingers it is hard to play. Overall it is a great game.
