This Moodle client is a fork of the Android version of the CMS BPHC app. These are its most prominent features:
- Custom instance by URL
- Basic auth and website auth
- View enrolled courses
- Offline cache
- Calendar link generation
- Dark theme
- In-app user help menu
The following Moodle modules can be viewed; unsupported modules open in the browser.
- Page (including image rendering)
- Forum (threads and discussions, but not posting)
- Choice (viewing options, submitting, undoing, and viewing results)
- Zoom (opening conference links in external application)
All modules (except for Zoom) store their data for offline usage.
When opening Moodle links externally, magic login is performed to log in on the browser.
More modules will be added in the future.

Code contributions. As a good-spirited open source project, dawdle of course welcomes code contributions of all kinds. Pick up some issues and open some Pull Requests!
Your code needs to be licensed under either the GNU GPL v3+ with the exception denoted above or under a more permissive license.
Translations. The project welcomes translations through a translation platform. Note that like when commiting with git, your email address will be included in the commit history. Each contributor gains a spot in the About menu.
Donations. You may donate to the project.
Tell a friend. dawdle is only available on F-Droid. For this reason, it would help a lot if you told your friends about the app, and taught them how they can install it if necessary.
Discuss issues. What features would be useful to you? What bugs have you encountered? Your thoughts about the app are valuable! Please share them in the issue tracker. You can contribute by submitting an issue, or by picking an existing one from the list and sending a PR. Ensure that the branch underlying the PR is up-to-date with latest changes. Contributors must ensure they add any significant changes to the changelog in the same PR itself.
Be a reference. For increased exposure and official recognition, dawdle hopes to become a Moodle Certified Integration and needs client references. If your company or university is using the application as an institution, please approach email@example.com and provide contact details.
