Nowadays, millennials are required to be more active and interested in information and technology. Similarly, in the learning process, it is also recommended to use technology actively. One of the technology-based learning media is appy pie. Appy pie is one of the online application builders available on the internet. This research aims to develop an android application called Appy pie to support students' writing stories skills through flipped classroom learning models and to know the responses of teachers and students when using the application. This type of research is Research and Development (R&D) using ADDIE design, which consists of five stages: Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation. The participants were 20 students in the fifth grade of elementary school. Based on the results of the research, it is found that the development of appy pie to support students' writing stories through flipped classroom learning model is assessed by three material and media practitioners to know the practicality of the product. The assessment results show that the average value of media practitioners is 95, and the average value of material practitioners is 84.67. The results show that the media is very feasible and effective to be used. The average student response to the assessment is 90.25, and the teacher response to the assessment is 96 with excellent criteria. Future research, application of pie media can be applied to all learning materials.
