I've written up a blog post on how the real time grab feature works:

Several minor bug fixes in this version
- Tags on emailed puzzles are now encoded properly so spaces and funny characters all work ok.
- Screen timeout is disabled when you are playing a puzzle.
- A couple of weird display glitches are fixed - not sure when they appeared.
You can now grab sudoku puzzles in real time! Just wait until the puzzle turns green and then touch the puzzle in the grey area - that will grab whatever puzzle was just recognised.
