Puzzle #58: Latin Pointers

So I have already professed my love of Naoki's genres already, so I figured I should put something new from him in this set as well. I came across these puzzles a little while before designing this set and absolutely loved the idea. I've always liked Pointers (named Japanese Arrows at the WPC) puzzles, even though I always find them very challenging. This genre combined the logic with Latin Squares. Therefore the name, Latin Pointers. Naoki named the genre mount, but that didn't really sound right to me.
Neither puzzle is very hard once you get the logic involved. I think this type helped the set become more diverse logicwise.

Rules for Latin Pointers

In both puzzles place the digits 0-3 once in every row and column.
