Cloud computing can be seen as a classical model that offers computing in a dimension that benefits both the providers and the consumers. The cloud providers have their infrastructure spread within or across several geographical locations, while the user is able to utilize services on-demand over the Internet. The cloud also offers storage and computing resources to the user. Mobile cloud computing is the grouping of mobile, Internet and the cloud to allow access to information at any place and any time. It reduces the issues of performance, environment and security associated with mobile computing. Applications run on the mobile phones or on servers. Real time information is available as long as there is sufficient data and bandwidth. This study was executed by means of review of some literature available on cloud and mobile computing. This paper examined present-day trends in cloud and mobile computing and also provides a guide for further research. Papers published in journals, conferences, white papers and those published in respectable magazines were analyzed. The results show that secure channel transmission on mobile cloud needs more focus, because only 5% of the papers examined discussed this topic. The outcome of this review will be useful in research on trends in cloud and mobile computing.
