Abstract

In this era of technological advancement, there is a tremendous growth in the usage of mobile
applications, mainly among accounting students in higher institutions as a medium for learning tools
in education. Accounting students at tertiary level basically are subjected to learn different types of
accounting standards. Accounting standards have continued to evolve to strike the balance between
providing meaningful information to the users and balancing up cost of preparing such information.
However, there is a growing concern that financial reporting has become overly complex. The
complexity caused by financial reporting standards may derive from many factors, such as their
length, the difficulty in understanding them, and the cost of applying their requirements. In the
educational stream, students find that it is hard to understand lengthy wordings in the standards.
Therefore, this interactive application is designed to help users especially students on classification
issues under MFRS140 Investment Property. Hence, the purpose of the study is to prove the
practicality and usefulness of mobile apps to understand accounting standards which is known as
MFRS140: Quick Chart Mobile App particularly among final semester accounting students. In this
study, the results revealed that this application provides useful and precise guidelines for students
as to avoid lengthy wordings to increase the level of their understanding. By using the application,
users will have a better knowledge in identifying whether the land and buildings fall under
MFRS140 or other MFRSs. Furthermore, the application contributes to the effort of making users
learn standards of accounting in a different perspective rather than a classroom-oriented perspective.
