Antenatal parent education(APE) is the key to solve numerous contemporary issues using education such as lessening brain development gap and reducing maternal and infantile mortality. Many researchers have examined existing APE on and off-line which have shown merits as well as limitations. Many of them urged research on alternatives to compensate the limitations, and the potential of education using ICTs such as Smartphone has been highlighted more recently. This study aims to analyze the current APE using Smartphone application comparing international users and Korean users with content analysis to conceptualize Smartphone efficiency for APE. The finding of content analysis was that parents need informing and supporting functions the most. Monitoring and shaping functions were regarded useful among users in terms of personalized APE. This result was accorded to both international and Korean users.
