The widespread and unprecedented popularity of mobile devices among young people leads to their spontaneous use in the educational process. Misuse of mobile devices in education results in inevitable difficulties and complexities that all participants of the educational process face today. One of the problems is the lack of well-developed methodological framework of mobile technologies implementation. It is aimed on analysis of some key issues related to the methodological framework of mobile technologies in language classroom, namely the conditions, methods and forms of integration, the evaluation criteria and typology of mobile applications, the most commonly used in the teaching of foreign languages. The evaluation criteria of mobile apps helps teachers choose a quality mobile tool for development of student communicative skills. The presented typology of applications, based on their didactic or pedagogical potential, allows teachers not only to orient in a huge mass of mobile resources, but also to get acquainted with educational opportunities provided by various apps.
