We’ve called it version 1.2 because the feature set is inherited from the deprecated iOS-only app “My Moodle” which reached version 1.1. Thanks to all the developers who’ve worked on delivering this version of the app: Juan Leyva, Jerome Mouneyrac, Barbara Ramiro and Josep Gifreu.
The new app has been designed as a platform with the following strengths:
- It is secure
- It can work offline
- It makes some Moodle operations faster and more convenient
- It will support notifications on all platforms (coming soon)
- It can be branded by any Moodle site easily using CSS
- It can be customised and expanded by an institution (the code is open source)
It is important to know that the app will never be able to support all the functions of Moodle, because Moodle is a huge fast-moving target and writing secure web services (which is how the app communicates to Moodle) takes a long time to do properly. This is a tradeoff that we had to make, and we know it may disappoint some users who want this app to do everything immediately!
