This research employs bibliometric analysis and computational mapping using VOSviewer to study mobile interface research trends. Data from Google Scholar spanning 50 years (1974-2024) identified 30 relevant articles grouped into 4 clusters. Results show mobile interface categorized under 'mobile interface' and 'mobile app', with 'mobile interface' linked to 5 sources, total link strength 6, and 17 occurrences; 'mobile app' linked to 9 sources, link strength 21, and 20 occurrences. Notable publication peaks occurred around 2013, with a decline post-2019. VOSviewer highlights active investigation areas. This study informs researchers and practitioners on mobile interface design, offering insights for future research directions.

Keywords – mobile interface, mobile app, user interface, mobile interface development, VOSviewer.
