Blast from the past! We stopped updating VisorCentral in late 2002, but feel free to browse around and feel nostalgic. There are 135 reviews and over a thousand articles in our archives. Also check out an even older version of the site.

VisorCentral Awards 2001

Software Module of the Year

With the introduction of color, Palm OS applications started growing larger in size, becoming a problem for users with limited RAM. Although the Visor is now available in a 16 MB model, sometimes users don't want to have to carry large applications in precious RAM. With the advent of the Springboard slot, large or little-used applications could be released that were stored on a Springboard module and not in the Visor's memory.

Pocket RecipesWinner:
Pocket Recipes by Pocket Express

Pocket Recipes allows users to have over 2500 recipes at their fingertips. These recipes are stored on the module itself, leaving room on the Visor for user-created recipes. Plus, you can quickly create shopping lists for the next trip to the store.

Hromadka: My wife really got a kick out of this module. Between this and the coolness of the Visor Neo, I may get her a Visor yet. The only thing missing is a more intuitive desktop application and Mac compatibility.

Honorable Mention: Entertainment Pack by Pocket Express

The classics never go away. Saving nearly 300 KB in memory, users can play Tetris, BlackJack, Lode Runner, PokerDice, PocketChess, and Solitaire all on one module. This is a great module to throw (gently) into the Visor when going on a long trip.
