ZEsarUX as recommended[edit]

My understanding is that ZEsarUX doesn't really emulate the ZX81; to run ZX81 software it emulates the ZX Spectrum 128kb with a ZX81 simulation ROM and a few additional pieces of hardware. But the video system it emulates is entirely distinct from that of the original hardware and, as a result, huge chunks of software (especially anything with a 'hi-res' video mode) don't work as on a real ZX81.

If my understanding is correct (?), should ZEsarUX really be recommended as a ZX81 emulator? It's a fine piece of software for emulating the Spectrum and QL, but I'm not sure about the ZX81 side of things. — Tommy (talk) 12:11, 21 March 2018 (EDT)

ZX81 iOS recommended left in a neutral state[edit]

I'm the developer behind the ZX81 iOS app and I have added it to the list today. I've left the recommend column in a neutral state for two reasons: i) It's not my place to say whether it should be recommended or not ii) Many users will be frustrated about the functionality to load external programs being unavailable due to the Apple Guidelines (more info / rant on the FAQ web link for the app). --Kpalser (talk) 10:48, 25 December 2018 (EST)— Kpalser (talk)
