Abstract: This study aimed to develop an Android-Based Study Buddy Pairing Application that helps students find a study partner for collaborative studying and peer Tutoring. The researchers used Agile software development life cycle for the development of the application. It is a method that is commonly used in a particular approach to project management that is utilized in software development. It is an iterative work sequence whereas it means that the process for calculating a desired result is by means of a repeated cycle of operations. The evaluation instrument used was Android Development Standard That contains 4 major criteria: visual design and user interaction, functionality, compatibility, performance and stability and security. As a whole, the evaluation result of the Android-based application was found to be excellent in most of its features. The developed application is a good avenue to augment studying between the learner and the tutor. It is recommended that the developed application should add more features such as file and image attachment and a profanity/obscenity filter on chat activity and an effective verification for learner and tutor. The features and functionality of the application is highly recommended to students who need peer tutoring.
