Mobile applications for teaching and learning are becoming an increasingly popular method of content delivery. Universities are being confronted with a rapid surge in the penetration of mobile devices amongst students. The challenge that universities are facing today is how to design and develop device independent mobile applications which can be easily implemented and integrated and are effective for teaching and learning, regardless of the mobile device in use. In this paper mobile applications (Apps) and technologies are discussed, design issues and implications are described, current methods of some proposed applications are reviewed, and challenges, barriers and limitations which came along with these applications are also described and analyzed. Finally the emerging cloud based computing platform is discussed, and recommended as the most effective method for a device independent mobile model for teaching and learning.
