This functionality allows you to select or capture an image, sound recording or video from your mobile device and quickly post it directly to your "Private files" area in Moodle. If you are offline, the file is saved and can be uploaded later when you are online.

Once the files are on Moodle, they are then easily accessible whenever you need to insert an image into a forum post, post an assignment or anything else that uses files.

The Moodle mobile app for iPhone is available for download for free from the iTunes app store (with FULL functionality). However the source code is owned by Moodle Pty Ltd and will not be initially distributed under the GPL.

On the Moodle mobile app roadmap is an app for Android. This will definitely be GPL and free for download and modification by other developers. This is in keeping with the philosophy of the Android platform and will allow the community to innovate on that platform.
