Recently, we are witnesses of major technological changes: the powerful, user-friendly mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, became more prevalent than desktop computers and laptops. In this paper we will use this new reality to focus on use of mobile devices in an educational process. In particular, we will explain the development of interactive mobile applications directly on mobile devices using TouchDevelop. It is a cloud-based integrated environment for developing, testing and running programs. The programs are coded in the TouchDevelop scripting language. The main goal is to make students active participants in application design, instead of being just passive users. At the same time, this will encourage them to continue to actively participate in programming process, using different devices.
