Abstract: The expansion of mobile technologies and their wider usage are transforming the process of e-learning into m-learning. The purpose of the article is to analyze the popular m-learning applications, to highlight their basic features and to outline the basic requirements for their development. Based on the cur-rent state of mobile phone market share the object of the research is Android learning apps. The applied approach includes analysis of the ten most popular m-learning applications. The results of the study show that all of the reviewed applications have a version for Android and for iOS operating systems. Howev-er, most of them are not typical m-learning applications, but rather they are e-learning libraries. In this regard, there is a need to find a way that more quickly introduce new learning approaches including the active use of mobile devices and applications in the learning process. First step must be to define a compre-hensive framework for development of m-learning applications.
