Binairo help

Binairo also known as Takuzu is a logic puzzle with simple rules and challenging solutions.

The rules are simple. Binairo is played on a rectangular grid with no standard size. Some cells start out filled with black or white circles. The rest of the cells are empty. The goal is to place circles in all cells in such a way that:
1. Each row and each column must contain an equal number of white and black circles.
2. More than two circles of the same color can't be adjacent.
3. Each row and column is unique.

Pinch with two fingers to zoom in/out. If you use a mouse you can use the scroll button.

Tap and drag to move the puzzle. If you use a mouse you can click and drag with the middle (scroll) button.

You can tap/click individual cells to change their state.

When this mode is selected from the game menu the state of the cell is going from "empty" to "white" to "black" to "empty". If you use the right mouse button the states rotate in the opposite order
If you select one of these modes... Simply put - what you see is what you get.
You can also mark more than one cell at a time. Tap and hold a bit, then move your finger to draw a line.
