I am trying to do a diode check. I have the probes connected to the Ohm/Diode Drop and Common terminals. I have the app set as shown in the screenshot. It beeps and says Out Of Range without ever touching the probes to the diode. Am I doing something wrong?

Seems normal to me. Out Of Range basically means the leads are not connected to anything while in a Resistance or Diode check mode.
If you touch the leads together in the Diode Test/Drop mode you should see the value drop almost to Zero and if you have the sound turned on you will hear a beep, beep, beep from the phone/tablet because this I assume is acting as a continuity tester at this point as well.
Not sure I like the intermittent beeping, no meter I have ever used before had an intermittent beeping. Might be useful to have a user definable continuity beep that is either solid or broken.

I have not used the diodes function of the Mooshimeter but times a functioning diode connected and the results compared with that of eimem Fluke. With the Mooshimeter only “Out of Range” was displayed as long as the Zero field was activated. After pressing on the zero field, the unit showed any values. A diode test is not possible.

Hi bobonit –
jfoj is correct that the “out of range” is appropriate if no diode is connected. However the beeping is not, I’ll investigate that.

Hi…i am a new user here. I also tried this. As per my knowledge If you touch the leads together in the Diode Test/Drop mode you should see the value drop almost to Zero and if you have the sound turned on you will hear a beep from the device because this I assume is acting as a continuity tester at this point as well.
