IPAQ Software Compatibility Question [HP iPAQ h1940 Pocket PC - 105738]

I am always questioning what software is available for my IPAQ 1945 when I am searching Handango, Dreamquest, Ilium,  etc. My system "About" page indicates: Microsoft Pocket PC, Ver 4.20.0 (Build 14053), Copyright 1996-2003 Microsoft Corporation.

The question is can I download Pocket PC 2002, Pocket PC 2003 software or  just what should I be looking for when I want to find compatible software?

Thanks,

Roger

Most software will be backwards compatible,is there anything specific you are after?

Well. I was speaking in terms of a general downloads, for example, many times it will say Mobile 5 or a number of other phones/pda's. Sometimes it will have something like Windows CE. Specifically, should I look for applications that indicate PC2002 or PC2003 and disregard any other devices?

Most WM5 apps will run on 2002/3 units, you may get a warning popup saying it is not for the current OS. 

But should still run.
