Distance learning is something really familiar nowadays. In the past few years, our world has witnessed a massive revolution in the world of information technology and provided simple ways to obtain information at reasonable prices. Today, sharing information is an integral part of every person’s life. Devices such as phones, tablets, and smartphones have become the main focus of digital life. With technological progress, electronic devices go through stages of software development that allow them to perform additional, more complex tasks, and process a larger flow of information. Almost everyone between the ages of 10 and 60 owns a mobile device. So mobile apps are always up to date. Therefore, it is quite logical to use the mobile application as an auxiliary element in the educational system, especially as it provides many services such as accessing the Internet, browsing the web, sending e-mails, exchanging multimedia messages and files and providing instant messaging applications with audio and video. Focusing on employing technology in education and its curricula, regardless of its level, is considered very important. This work diagnoses what users prefer when using the e-learning application through a questionnaire distributed to a group of university students to collect data on their preferences regarding mobile applications for e-learning.

Keywords: mobile application programming, e-learning, educational process, learner, distance learning.
