VecApp - What is it good for ?
Find a Vectrex - made easy. I am a Vectrex collector and I find the most of my collectibles at the different ebay markets. This is no problem when I am at home, but on the road I can only access eBay via its mobile version on my iPhone. I created a tiny web-app to search for Vectrex collectibles at the most active markets, namely USA, Germany and UK. After the first simple version was finished I decided to provide it to all Vectrex collectors. I added some more features and a friendly user interface and here we go.
In the last week we had a beta test and the app seems to work well on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Palm and Android phones. I could not check all devices, if you mention a bug - please contact me.
How to start the application ?
Please open the web app URL below with your mobile device, then tap “Add to Bookmarks” for easy, one-tap access. You can just open the web app now like a regular app and, providing you’re connected to the web in some way, it will work perfectly.
Open the following URL with your mobile browser:
Many thanks to the Beta Testers: Spencer, Rudy, Chris and Brian.
Known Bugs and Limitations
On Android phones:
There is an odd issue where the listings page appears to be locked from scrolling (so you can only see the first 4 listings). Clicking on one of the listings (which opens the mobile eBay website) and then returning to the VecApp listings page allows you to scroll through the rest of the results.
You can not view the hidden Vectrex Video on Android phones.
