Game-based Learning on PDA's

Has anyone come across some effective examples of (game-based) learning on PDA's, mobile phones or other gadgets? I mean, you might as well use your commuting time (or other time wasters) doing something productive.

depends what is being learnt from the game?

for example minesweeper on the Palm is a great example of logic.

There is also a member here in TalkGadgets who who develops a lot of logic games for PDA's, so if you are looking to learn logic i can think of many examples.

You rang? =) While writing my games, I made sure I had good tutorial modes written for them, and from the mail I used to get, they were quite popular. My version of Mastermind came with a handy helper mode, which didn't use any information the player didn't already have (rather than giving out blatant hints). As a result, an average player could massively improve their score (and therefore their logical deduction skills) in a short time. As far as current software is concerned, I'm not sure -- I've been away from the scene for a while.
