A pleasure…

I usually use Pearson for math, so I actually didn’t know that it could be used for anything but; however, the bio class I am taking had a Pearson login. I saw that it was easier to get the app, and I actually really love it. It’s an easy on-the-go, automatically had a dark mode in place, which makes reading way easier, (my whole phone is in dark mode), and it’s SUPER EASY to navigate. I’m kind of really diggin’ it. Didn’t think I would be as excited not having a physical book, but this is better than anticipated. ♥️

Still Frustrated

I teach several courses per semester and have done so for more than 15 years. I adopted MyMathLab early on after moving to Pearson, and this app is now the third attempt by Pearson to provide a digital textbook for the courses I teach. The apps continue to improve despite some irritating setbacks. You would think that after so many years, I would be able to arrange the order of my books? (thank you for allowing this in MyLab with the pin and drag options). And when will the duplicates end? It should not be so difficult to locate the book that I want to use. My biggest complaint, though, is the syncing of the app with the website. You would think that this would be a nice feature but it makes it impossible to “hold my finger on a page” to answer a students question and then go back to where I was on the exercise page. And as an instructor, or tenured professor to make the point, I shouldn’t have access to textbooks removed because the MyLab course expired. I used to have contacts at Pearson who set access privileges for some of my textbooks, which migrated over to this new app. But it was a hassle and I don’t have the patience to go through this again. Overall, I appreciate having the app for my iPad. I just wish it were more useful and better suited for instructors.

Dear Professor,
Thanks for the detailed feedback on your experience using Pearson+ as an instructor! Pearson+ was initially designed for students, but we are currently working on an instructor-optimized view which will consider the high number of titles and courses associated with your account and give you more control to personalize your view. We’d also love to help you regain access to the titles associated with your expired courses. Please email us at so that we can assist.
Quick tip- your recently visit pages can be accessed on the “recent” tab within the table of contents. We’d love to hear if this would solve for your “hold my finger on a page” use case. Thanks again for taking the time to provide specific feedback. We hope you will email us so we can connect and discuss in more detail. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and we thank you for your patience.

Please listen :(

I like being able to have all my textbooks in one place, and to have such easy access to them at all times. However, this app is actually driving me insane. 1) it took me 4 days to even figure out how to open my textbooks on my iPad. The app looks like there is a better layout, but for some reason it defaults my app to a page with just textbook names. 2) I love to highlight important information as I read, but every time I try to, it takes me to the next page or the page before!!!! It is so annoying! I wish there was a way to lock my page so I don’t have to reload the page over and over. Also, why do I have to even select text? I want to be able to select a highlighter and just highlight the text without having to select the words. I wish there was a better way to annotate. 3) when I read my book along side of my notes with split screen, I cannot scroll without it going to previous or future pages. A lock feature would help with this as well! 4) I often have to site page numbers for my homework, and there are no page numbers in the app. Why….? Overall, I kind of wish I would’ve just invested in paper textbooks instead of an iPad specifically for this app. Oh well.

Hi Crimson, we hear you and understand! We apologize for this frustrating experience. The app now has book sorting improvements, so your most recently opened textbooks will be at the front and the unopened ones in alphabetical order. In September, we're accelerating work to have more organization of textbooks since we know this is essential. Today, page numbers are title-specific, unfortunately. We're trying to expedite the work to bring page numbers to the majority of the catalog and make them more central to the experience. For the issues around highlighting and split-screen sensitivity, we'd like to take a closer look with you! Please write to us at with your username or email address associated with your account and share the specific book(s) you are using. This information will allow us to troubleshoot quickly. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us! We hope to connect soon.
