  3. Apps for the iPad and for smartphones are often described as apps for Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL), a term that began to become popular around 5-6 years ago. There is a new section on MALL at the ICT4LT site, with links to downloadable resources:
    Module 2.3, Section 5:

    Many apps that were originally designed for standard computers have now been reversioned so that they run on iPads and smartphones, e.g. the EuroTalk and BYKI apps - see the above link.
    Bill Brick (Coventry University) maintains a Scoop.it page on smartphones and language learning - which may be worth keeping an eye on:
