People asked me why I invested time in making these pages. Well, first of all I like to share my findings with others, and secondly maybe you will be happy finding these little treasures overhere. There were thousands and thousands of great freeware and shareware programs available for the PocketPC platform. For months and months I have been looking around, downloading & trying freeware, and I finally came up with this shortlist. These are just *my* favourites, so there may be some stuff that you won't find interesting. But there is a serious chance that you will find a gem here you didn't see anywhere else. Hope you enjoy exploring these files! PS: as far as I know (but please investigate further!), all programs should run on Windows CE 2003, CE 2003SE, Windows Mobile 5, Windows Mobile 6, Windows Mobile 6.1, Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Mobile 6.5.1, Windows Mobile 6.5.5, Windows Mobile 6.5.3, Windows Phone 7 and Windows Embedded Handhelds. And yes, these are old machines, but still in use! If you still use or have one of these you're probably happy to have found these links here today (you're welcome!).
