This paper deals with the importance of integrating Cambridge Classroom App in the classroom. The researchers based the idea of the study upon the newly published second edition of Unlock Series titled Reading, Writing, and Critical Thinking alongside Listening and Speaking and Critical thinking. Side by side with the online Cambridge accounts, students should download a mobile application known as “Cambridge Pocket”, which is easily accessible by students via App store and Android systems. In fact, this paper aims at analysing the attitudes of Birzeit University students towards the integrated mobile application within their English language curriculum (Cambridge Unlock). It precisely reveals important findings concerning how responsively, emotionally, motivationally and educationally this application works. All such hypotheses and questions have been clarified quantitatively and qualitatively. To achieve this purpose, 120 students were randomly selected from Unlock B1.2., Intermediate English and given a questionnaire. Concerning the qualitative data, it has been sought by analysing students’ responses to a set of open-ended questions within the questionnaire in order to reflect on their experience with the second edition of Unlock Books. Hence, this research shows the importance of integrating such apps within the English language classroom.
