+1 for beta testing. We have a Nexus 7 for trying out Android stuff (they couldn't stretch to an iPad for us though, so mine comes in when testing is needed)
Moodle for mobile
MAJOR NEWS: Change in our Moodle mobile app strategy
Message communicated by @moodler at UK Moot this week was that a Beta app is imminent, and was due this week but a blocker bug is holding it up. I guess as soon as that beta is released then we can all have a play and submit bugs in the usual manner. The source is available on githib but I couldn't understand how to get it working so I'm hoping the beta release will be something that is easy to install.
the beta is unofficially available there: https://build.phonegap.com/apps/314601/share
The beta build gets updated regularly, at least once a week. I'll try to see how to get the build date available for everyone.
Juan fixed the last blocker few days ago. You can follow the app development there: https://tracker.moodle.org/secure/RapidBoard.jspa?rapidView=6&quickFilter=19
Note that the Beta iOS version only work if your iOS device is registered as QA device at Moodle HQ. People who were QA testing the previous app should be able to QA this app if they use the exact same device.
That's great news Jerome.
Going through the related forums there are quite a few people that want to get involved with Beta / QA testing for the mobile apps. It would be great if someone could post some instructions how to get involved with testing, and if there is a QA testers group in the tracker for this. I couldn't find anything.
we'll explain in detail the beta phase in an official announcement.
We in the Philippines from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde are interested in the beta testing of moodle mobile.
For now what try to do is develop a "mobile optimized" web user interface for our moodle site. Just for our moodlers using mobile devise be comfortable in accessing it. We know this is not a solution but it is our first step in moving from web to mobile.
How can we become a beta tester?

This is great news. One question though, I don't see an Android version there (https://build.phonegap.com/apps/314601/share). Am I overlooking something, because I thought PhoneGap built for pretty much everything? Thanks!
sometimes the Android build is broken because Phonegap Build requieres to enter a master password for the Android certificate. We are trying to fix this.
In any case, the app is available in the Play Store:
