The mTouch (formerly known as MoodleTouch) app for iPhone and iPod Touch has been approved by Apple and is now available in the app store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mtouch/id366785596?mt=8.
The app is $2.99 for download and can be used by the end user to connect to any pre-Moodle 2.0 installation. The app looks very much like our original screen shots.
As an additional option, organizations and schools with Moodle sites can contract their own branded mTouch app by contacting PragmaTouch (http://www.pragmasql.com/home/moodletouch/custombranding.aspx). Custom branding cost as low as $1 per student.
One option for custom branding is that organizations can use their custom branded mTouch app to create their own revenue stream through the app store,
Providing free custom mTouch is not the only option, institutions can also sell their custom branded mTouch on the AppStore. In this case institutions will have to manage their own AppStore account. PragmaTouch will only provide the ipa of the custom branded mTouch.
In any event, it’s a great day for Moodle Mobile. Don’t forget you can “try it before you buy it” by downloading the Windows demo from http://moodletouch.com. Tell us what you think: too expensive? too cheap? will your students buy it? will your organization buy it?
