Abstract: Mobile devices are becoming an essential part of our daily life due to most efficient and effective communication tools without time and space boundation. Everyone has a mobile, tablet, tablet with calling facility i.e. Fablet. Cloud Computing (CC) has been widely recognized as the next generation’s computing infrastructure with the rapid growth of mobile applications and the support of Cloud Computing for a variety of services, the Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) is introduced as an integration of Cloud Computing into the Mobile Environment. Mobile Cloud Computing is gaining stream. MCC is referred to as the infrastructure where both the data storage and the data processing happen outside the mobile device. In MCC environment, Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing and Application face several challenges like Mobile Computation Offloading, Seamless Connectivity, Vendor/Data Lock-in, Long WAN Latency, Live VM (Virtual Machine) migration issues, Low Bandwidth, EnergyEfficient Transmissions and Trust-Security and Privacy Issues. In this paper, I have discussed about several challenges and issues related to the Mobile Cloud Computing. This paper gives information about Mobile Cloud Computing Application, Security and Issues.
