Biology subjects in high school learn everything about life. In this case it involves skills and reasoning. This study aims to analyze the validity, effectiveness, practicality, and characteristics of android-based e-booklets. This research is a research and development or R&D. The development in this study adopted a 4-D model which included four stages namely define, design, develop, dissemination. The results of the study on the validity test showed that the material experts obtained a value of 92.14% with a very good category. Based on the results of the validation of media experts obtained a value with a percentage of 86.29% in the very good category. The results of the research on the effectiveness of android-based e-booklet are 1) classical completeness ≥ 80%, 2) N-Gain test results are different and better (has increased).
