At present, learning mobile applications (apps) have become highly popular and are widely used. However, they will only be accepted by users if their usability is of an acceptable level. Usability tests assist to measure the impact of a mobile learning app; researchers focus on the compatibility of the app interface with the cognitive skills of children and easy usage. The “BenKids” app has been designed especially for pre-school children (aged three to five). It was created for android devices to teach vocabulary to pre-school children by providing the user with an easy and simple interface. This study aimed to demonstrate a relationship between learning and the usability of the “BenKids” mobile app and explore its impact on children’s learning. The usability of the “BenKids” app was measured with 10 pre-school children. The results showed the effective usability of the app and strongly impacts learning.
