Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.5. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Mobile app.

Mobile app latest: The Moodle Mobile app (developed on HTML5 and Phonegap) is replacing the old mobile app for iPhone, My Moodle.

Moodle sites must be enabled for the app to access them

The administrator of your Moodle site (which must be version 2.4 or later) must enable mobile access as follows:

  1. In Settings > Site administration > Advanced features tick the 'Enable web services' checkbox, then click the button to save changes
  2. In Site administration > Plugins > Web services > Mobile tick the 'Enable web services for mobile devices' checkbox, then click the button to save changes. (Ticking the 'Enable web services' checkbox should enable this also, but doesn't always.)
