The intersection of mobile applications and computing with the promising concept of cloud computing resulted in the birth of Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC). MCC has emerged as a remarkable milestone for global mobile services. Enriching its efficiency and productivity to many dimensions, MCC serves a unique blend of mobile computing and cloud computing seamlessly integrated and tries to overcome issues related to environment ( e. g. , heterogeneity, availability), security( e. g. , reliability and privacy) and performance issues( e. g. , bandwidth, storage capacity, battery life). This paper provides an introduction of MCC discussing its architecture and advantages; it then takes a look at various existing application models to MCC. The issues, challenges are discussed. In addition, Future research directions of MCC are also studied.
