The method used in this research was descriptive. The subject was 30 students of Junior High School in Bandung and one science teacher. The result showed that the application for earthquake mitigation is received adequately with good evaluation. The experts on content, language and artwork were evaluated the mobile learning application. The result of the experts’ judgment content reached 83.33%, 87.5% on the language content and reached 93.75% on artwork (IT) aspect.
