Students, as smartphone android users, give potency to be used as flexible and representative learning media. This potency is appropriate for geography learning on hydrosphere material and its impact towards life on earth which has complex material characteristics and many concepts. The objectives of this research are: 1) to find out the need of learning media for geography android-based on hydrosphere topic and its impact towards life on earth. 2) to find out the steps of Geo-Smart development using android-based. 3) to find out the feasibility of Geo-Smart on hydrosphere material and its impact towards life on earth. This research used Research and Development (R&D) with ADDIE model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, Evaluation). The result showed that: 1) Students needed learning media of geography with android-based, 2) learning media of android-based Geo-Smart was compiled with ADDIE development model adapted to core competencies, basic competencies, indicators, and learning objectives on curriculum 2013 and equipped with feature of map concept, hydrosphere material, picture, schema, map, video, exercise, quiz, assessment, and profile. Android-based Geo-Smart was developed by using Adobe Flash CS6, and 3) the feasibility of Android-based Geo-Smart according to the experts consisted of media expert and material expert was 83% and students’ response was 86%, therefore it could be concluded that Geo-Smart learning media was proper to be applied.
