Sorry for the delay. I'm a bit swamped . . .
The best thing to do would be to contact Fatma (the developer of MobiGlam). Her contact information should be on that page (see previous posting for link).
I guess the main advantage is that MobiGlam requires low bandwidth--making it usable on a variety of devices including very rudimentary cell phones. So, in it's lean delivery of content, it cuts out unnecessary navigation and does not force the user to scroll through copious amounts of text and links. The high cost of data in Canada is a big issue for us. We do not have very good "unlimited" data plans--if any.
The application is client-side and programmed in Java. It does works Blackberries, but not iPhones (which, I believe, do not work with Java nor non-authorized-by-Mac applications). In my work, I do not want to force users to purchase a specific device (especially expensive devices), so I have been investigating MobiGlam which will allow many different devices to access Moodle remotely.
I have been testing MobiGlam with simple cell phones as well as my fancy-schmancy HTC TYTN II smart phone, Palm Treo, and anything that my colleagues and project respondents have. It works well for me.
I get a little lost in forums, though. The forum is the one module that I would recommend permitting more text/posts to appear on one screen in MobiGlam--even though it would increase scrolling and data download for the user.
Hope that helps.
