Currently, mobile devices are very popular among people of all ages. After tablets appeared on the market, mobile devices started to be widely used in firms, schools as well as in free time. Nowadays, mobile application stores offer a lot of applications. In these stores we can find also applications aimed to be used as supplements during educational process. Although, there is not enough of these applications. In this article, we focus on the creating new mobile applications which can be used in mathematical teaching. Two of these applications were created in Android Studio, three of them were created in App Inventor. This environment offers creating new mobile applications without previous knowledge about programming. In the article we focus also on the creating applications with the use of this environment.

Keywords: Mobile applications, m-learning, mathematics, geometric shapes.
