mPage representative, James CY Chan, has posted more information and pledged a concession in the design of mPage mobile web service in the Moodle forums.

Post Pages - Post Inline - WIRIS

One change to the app is that the install to a Moodle server no longer “phones home” to update the files automatically; by removing this feature mPage is safer and more secure for those interested in working with it.

James also noted some release notes of what is/isn’t supported by mPage:

internal web pages,
internal text pages,
directory display,
playing back of MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps) audio files,
playig back of .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats videos,
external web pages.

It also supports the following file extentions:

  • .jpg, .png, .gif (images);
  • .doc (Microsoft Word);
  • .htm and .html (web pages);
  • .pdf (Preview and Adobe Acrobat);
  • .ppt (Microsoft PowerPoint);
  • .xls (Microsoft Excel).
