In this world, smart devices are infiltrating with such a high speed that we can find them everywhere. Because of the widespread usage of the smart devices, software developers and engineers must be aware of the fascinating characteristics of mobile phones and familiarize their formative methods to meet the requirement of the software used in mobile devices. Due to the simple application transferability, distinctive sensors, and high processing, the designers and developers of autonomous and commercial systems have established their new operational ground within the frame of agile devices. However, we discover that the computer programmers who are responsible for the fast-paced growth of this modern stage are required to update themselves. The paper will discuss four main challenges faced by mobile software engineers for a variety of applications, as well as potential research opportunities. We would also be examining at the different issues given: A) Creating a User Interface for disabled people B) Development of platform Independent Application C) Development of context-aware application, and D) To deal with ambiguous requirement.
