AbstractMobile technology is continually developing. Research suggests that mobile apps are beneficial for language learning. Yet, because apps developed by researchers are not accessible to the public, the benefits of mobile apps on the market remain unclear. This study reviewed the 22 most popular Chinese-vocabulary learning apps on the market for native speakers. The results of content analysis show that only two types of these apps have been designed: dictionaries and games, neither of which provide their users with opportunities to practice new words. Although these apps facilitated the use of one or more learning strategies, they generally lack clear learning goals, explanations, opportunities to practice, and feedback.
