A need for the review of Mobile-Assisted Language Learning emerges to shed light on the future research to prepare, plan, design and integrate a mobile learning based pedagogical framework. This study aims to provide a general but recent outline of the research focusing on MALL with references to national (Basoglu & Akdemir, 2010; Oz, 2014) and international studies (Liu & Chen, 2014; Hsu, Hwang & Chang, 2013). With the qualitative meta-analysis design, this study examines 32 selected MALL papers published between 2010 and first half of 2015. Database and citation search were performed limiting the keywords to MALL, while excluding the studies on m-learning. In addition to the existing meta-analyses on MALL (Burston, 2015; Duman, Orhon, & Gedik, 2014), as a follow-up, the findings reveal a skill-based language learning orientation with an emphasis on vocabulary and listening, followed by learning factors such as student perspectives, intention, acceptance and readiness to use new mobile technologies. New additions to MALL research include integration of social media, a link to language acquisition and the design of mobile applications. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
