Vectrex Museum presents VecApp

January 19, 2012

Vectrex Museum is proud to present the first Vectrex Locator web-app for mobile phones: VecApp.
Please open with your mobile device, then tap “Add to Bookmarks” for easy, one-tap access. More information about VecApp here.

What the hack is a web-app ?

The web-app resides on server and is accessed via the Internet. It performs specified tasks - potentially all the same ones as a native application - for the mobile user, usually by downloading part of the application to the device for local processing each time it is used. The software is written as Web pages in HTML and CSS, with the interactive parts in Java. This means that the same application can be used by most mobile devices that can surf the Web (regardless of the brand of phone).

Background Picture Contest

Create a start screen background picture for VecApp.

Simple rules: The picture needs to be related to the Vectrex. Use your computer, a pencil or anything else to create a 310 (h) x 320 (w) pixel resolution picture. Please mention the three location buttons that cover parts of your picture.

One picture per person, please send in your picture until February 29, 2012 to the email address: All pictures will be published for the contest that runs in March 2012 here at The five most voted pictures will be included on the VecApp start screen and shown in a random order.
