Cloud computing is one of the emerging technology which is finding its usage everywhere. Mobile cloud is one step ahead of Cloud computing. In this paper, we will give a brief an overview of Mobile cloud computing and will discuss some of the application partition schemes for offloading in mobile cloud . The paper also discusses what kind of applications are suitable for offloading and also indicates towards future research directions for offloading.
