Abstract: This research aims to develop a new generation e-book application for mobile phones and determine its effectiveness in improving students' conceptual mastery as compared to paper based-books. The research and development method was adopted in this study. The participants involved 76 secondary school students sampled by using the purposive sampling technique, divided equally into the experimental and control classes. The instruments used included tests on the conceptual mastery of the topics of linear motion and circular motion and a four-rating scale questionnaire. The data were analysed by using t-test. The results showed a significant difference in the conceptual mastery of the experimental and control classes. It was found that the improved conceptual mastery of the experimental and control class was influenced by the topics, presumably caused by the different amounts and variations of the static and dynamic representational modes used.
