The accelerated development of new technology, particularly on mobile application has increased teacher’s responsibility as a learning facilitator.Mobile learning application is very useful in enriching the mobile learning experience of children.However, some applications fail to assist and increase children knowledge on the subject they studied.Moreover, some children are not interested in mobile applications due to other issues such as poor interfaces.In this paper, some previous studies on dimensions used to evaluate mobile learning applications were reviewed.The systematic literature review approach was employed to search previous papers and studies on usability dimension, particularly for mobile learning applications.The result showed that the top four usability dimensions are efficiency,effectiveness; learn ability and user satisfaction. This study explored the current literatures on the subject matter and stimulates further studies that will lead to improved usability of mobile learning applications for children.
