In this paper we discuss whether mobile applications can support software developers to improve their efficiency and communication. We propose the idea of Mobile Scrum, a native and integrated mobile application that supports scrum teams in their activities and fits into their environment. Team members can use it anytime and anywhere to communicate and share knowledge within the team. Mobile Scrum provides a lightweight, yet easy and intuitive to use interface compared to existing web-based and desktop applications. With guides and templates it helps to prevent typical problems when applying Scrum. Furthermore it improves the consistency of scrum artifacts and enables easy access to important information.
