The growth of "smart" mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, has been exponential over the past few years. Such growth was mainly attributed to the development of mobile applications. To date, mobile applications have been increasingly used to improve our productivity and also to provide the entertainment contents. However, with a huge number of mobile applications that appear in the application stores; in particular those that provide similar functionalities, users are often confused with the selection of trustworthy and high quality mobile applications. At the current state, there is a limited research embarked to provide solutions for measuring the trustworthiness of mobile applications prior to download. Thus, the aims of this paper are to review the current research in this area and to discuss several issues in measuring the trustworthiness of mobile applications. In addition, this paper also proposes MobilTrust, a similarity trust measurement method to solve the identified issues. © 2013 ICST Institute for Computer Science, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering.

Trust is an important element in any transaction, be it a physical or an online transaction. Prior to purchasing a product or to engage in collaboration, we always attempt to measure the trustworthiness of another party. This is to ensure that we transact with the trustworthy party that will benefit us and not the ones that perform the detrimental actions. In an online environment such as Internet, however, establishing trust is a difficult process due to the unfamiliarity between the buyers and sellers and the physical distance between them. Rating systems (i.e. the five-star rating system, the binary rating system, etc.) are introduced in today’s online websites helping customers to derive the trust of the sellers and/or products. These systems rely heavily on others’ recommendations as an input to measure the trustworthiness of products and/or sellers.
