The majority of the existing research regarding mobile learning in computing education has primarily focused on studying the effectiveness of, and in some cases reporting about, implemented mobile learning solutions. However, it is equally important to explore development and application perspectives on the integration of mobile learning into computing education and identify practical implications for learning and teaching practices. In this study, the authors performed a systematic review of scientific publications related to mobile learning in computing education. After identifying relevant publications, they analysed them from three main aspects: technology and development, design of mobile learning solutions and applications, and implications for learning. The authors' study reveals that mobile learning in computing education has the potential to increase several affective traits of learners. In addition, mobile learning in computing education has matured enough to be mainly concerned with the mainstreaming of the computing curriculum rather than basic research.
